DicksonOne | Probe Replaceable Sensor Disconnect

Probe Replaceable Sensor Disconnect

There are a few different scenarios associated with a probe or replaceable sensor disconnect in DicksonOne.
 
A probe (example: KTC) is unplugged
In the first generation devices (all black or a SKU like Wxx## or Exx##), if a probe is disconnected from a replaceable sensor this will trigger an alarm if one is set.
 
If (and only if) the probe is an RKTC or RKTC2 k-thermocouple (the yellow portion of the sensor), and it is disconnected from the sensor, this will trigger an alarm in a second generation device (white/grey or a SKU like TSB, TWE, TWP, or DWE).
Any other replaceable sensor type will not trigger when the probe is removed from the sensor
 
Replaceable Sensor Unplugged
In the first generation devices (all black or a SKU like Wxx## or Exx##), if a replaceable sensor, the probe+pod combo or simply pod+sensor, is unplugged, this will trigger an alarm if one is set.
 
In a second generation device (white/grey or a SKU like TSB, TWE, TWP, or DWE), this will NOT trigger an alarm.
As an alternative, you may set a not reporting alarm on a device, but be aware of the following:
If you have a DWE unit: you can only have one replaceable sensor with this device. So if the sensor is unplugged, the not reporting alarm will trigger

If you have a TWE/TWP unit: you can have two replaceable sensors connected to this device. So if one is unplugged, the not reporting alarm will NOT trigger (because it is still reporting). If both are unplugged, the alarm will trigger
