Animal Thermometer Setup

Fusion can work with any type of temperature probe as long as it presents itself as a serial device. If your computer doesn’t have a serial port, it is possible to find serial to USB converters and serial to Bluetooth converters.

If you use such a converter, there will be some software or drivers that need to be installed and configured so that the temperature probe ends up looking like a serial device. Please note that every temperature probe and every converter work differently and we are not able to help with the configuration of this equipment. If you are having trouble with this aspect, please refer the documentation that came with the temperature probe and/or the converter or call the manufacturer for additional help.

However, once the device is properly installed and configured as a serial port, getting Fusion to work with it should be fairly easy.

tip icon Please consult the Fusion Resource Guide for more information on temperature probes.
