Q: Is it important the HSM fibers be installed in a sequential pattern to get the correct readings?

It is not important that they be installed sequentially, however It is important to know which channel each fiber is connected to on the HSM as well as the device they are associated with. The channel numbers are listed in the web page for the HSM and you will need to know which channel each device is connected to in order to tell if it is in the expected temperature range. Making sure both ends on the fibers are labeled for easy distinguishing during any routine maintenance that may occur. If you have further questions please reach out to the Grace Technologies Customer Service and Technical Support for guidance.
