Easy Excel Programmable Sheet
If you have excel, you can input your offset using values (-10, 10) to determine the correct hexidecimal or decimal value that you need to use to input into either firmware V1.07 or V1.06.
Click here to download Multisensor 6 firmware V1.07 or V1.06 Parameter 201 Easy Sheet.
If you find that your Multisensor 6 is mis-calibrated for any reason, you will be able to create an offset for the temperature values. You will be able to offset the current temperature from a range of -10.0 to 10.0 C or F depending on which is being used. The below example is value in both firmware V1.06 and V1.07 (even with the new byte change to V1.07).
Parameter 201 [1 byte] will set the offset temperature using signed decimals which will allow for negative offset and positive offset.
Setting a positive offset value (+5.5 value)
Parameter 201 [1 byte]: 55
Setting a negative offset value (-3.2 value)
256 is the maximum size of a byte in decimals.
(256 - 32) = 224
Parameter 201 [1 byte]: 224
V1.07 Changes to Parameter 201
Why value 0 Yields 2 (US) or 1 (EU/AU)
The 201 settings are now 2 byte size instead of 1.
The settings now look like this: 0xXXYY
XX = Adjustment temperature
YY = Type of Temperature in C or F (01 = C, 02 = F these are automatic depending on EU/AU or US versions)
by setting XX to 0
you get 0x0002 which is just a value of 2, or for the EU/AU versions it would yield 0x0001 which is just a value of 1.
This is why it always defaults to 2 for US and 1 for EU.AU versions.
Setting adjustment to (positive) +1.5
Parameter 201 [2 byte hex] = 0x0F02 (US) or 0x0F01 (EU/AU) (offset by +1.5 F)
Parameter 201 [2 byte dec] = 3842 (US) or 3841 (EU/AU)
Set setting Parameter 201 [1 byte dec] = 15 is acceptable, this will report back as 3842 (US) or 3841 (EU/AU) after the Multisensor 6's re-adjustment on the configuration setting.
Setting Adjustments to (negative) -2.5
(256 - 25) = 231
231 decimal = 0xE7 hexidecimal
Parameter 201 [2 byte hex] = 0xE702 (US) or 0xE701 (EU/AU) (offset by +1.5 F)
Parameter 201 [2 byte dec] = 59138 (US) or 59137 (EU/AU)
Set setting Parameter 201 [1 byte dec] = 231 is acceptable (in some gateways/softwares, it can be inputted as Parameter 201 [1 byte dec] = -25), this will report back as 59138 (US) or 59137 (EU/AU) after the Multisensor 6's re-adjustment on the configuration setting.
