Does Acurite make longer extension probes? The one I bought is only 5 ft long. Can I get a 15 or 20 ft long probe extension? Or can I splice in appropriate size wire to make it longer? Thanks.

Hello Kerry,

At this time we do not make any longer cords. We will take this into consideration for future development. We would not recommend splice the cord, as altering the product would void the warranty. Thank you.

Thanks for the quick response. I understand the voiding the warranty part, however, can someone from your design/technical team tell me the risks of lengthening the probe wire? Will it work at all? Will the accuracy be way off if I splice in 10 ft of wire? Thanks again. Kerry

Hello Kerry,

What is the model number of the product you are referring to? Once I have this information I will inquire.

Third request for longer cables I've heard today.

Jennifer, please note this is a significant customer request.

Kerry, it's a digital serial signal between the RM and the sensor so accuracy would not be affected by a longer cable. The question is how the digital I/F would work would work with a longer cable. I expect you could add 10 feet if done cleanly.

Please note, that hacking the cable is not sanctioned nor recommended by AcuRite and will certainly void any warranty .

I am also looking for a longer cord. Perhaps a simple extension cord could be offered?
