Temp sensor modify

Postby Stefano2 on Sun Nov 06, 2016 2:20 pm

I have the old next step.
I have moved the batteries and now the temp sensor wire is too short to get to the batteries.
Can I modify it and make it longer enough (3 1/2 meters)?
thanks

Use at least #16 AWG wire and the effect on temperature reading will be nil.

Hi Coulomb and thanks for reply.
We don't have #16 AWG in Europe.
Which size do I need to buy ?
Thanks

Something with a cross-sectional area larger than 1.3 mm^2
