New versus old readers....
I just talked to Jason today (which was long overdue but I believe the cold weather in Wisconsin has frozen my brain) about the new reader we need when we use the new Rapid RH probes with the red sensor plate.

The sensor plate can be seen when looking down the barrel of the probe. There is a red or black ring around the copper circles at the bottom. Red is the newest sensor version and the previous reader will NOT work with the red probes.

Jason explained the new probes have a more robust sensor installed which works with a new software version. The new readers are made to read the red probes and will also read the black plated probes. The older readers can only read the black sensor plate probes.

So if you are getting an error reading when trying to read your probes, look in the barrel and see if there is a red ring around the connection circles.... It could be you need an updated reader!!!

RE: New versus old readers....
OK, so I went to the Wagner site and checked info about what readers and sensors and readers are avaliable online. There is no distinguishable verbage about which is which or most current.
Then I noticed the chat window. Had a chat with Robyn abiout my reader and here is what she said:

Quote:Robyn K.While the numbers are handy on the reader it is the label is the tell tell sign and if you do take a test and get an ER reading on any other reader that you may have then please call me that is a sure indicator that you need an upgraded reader.

And so if the label is bordered by yellow on top and bottom it is a current model. Which mine is thank the Lord! If it is orange then you may need an upgrade which I believe is free.

The Orange Man is goofing off at a trade show again. Dodgy

I absolutely Heart that chat!

There's a warning on the label of the newer sensor packets about the change. And yes it is free.
