The silicone cover does not affect the accuracy of measurements in the basic use of temperature sensors (measurements of environmental conditions). Additional silicone cover has a slight influence on sensor’s rate of change of the sensor’s indications. On request, we provide a test report on temperature sensors tested with an additional silicone cover and without it.
ATTENTION: Correct operation of the silicone cover requires its periodic removal.
The manufacturer recommends to take the cover off once every two weeks for a period of about 8 hours.
