We have the above unit operating with a PT100
SEn set to PtI
The relays operate at the correct temperature according to the display.
e.g. display =80 deg C
Relay prog to change at 80 deg C and the relay changes in line with the display.
The problem is that with a separate sensor (thermocouple) at the same location it is reading approx. 105 deg C
We have checked RTD
RTD wiring
and consider they are ok
Is there a reason for this type of offset??

20 degrees is a really high value, I think it isn't a PT100B "Beta385"

Not sure I understand the 20 degree ref as a high value.
Do you mean as a difference ?

Yes, I mean as error in reading (difference between real and read).

Hi,
disconnect the probe from the regulator and measure it with a multimeter.
At 105°C it must be about 140 Ohm. If it is about 130 Ohm the probe is reading 80°C so it is not working good.

Also check the cable you use: the three wires must have the same section and
electrical characteristics.
