Cable Probes are a family of miniature environment sensors measuring ambient temperature, humidity, and light. The family also includes an IR receiver/transmitter. Cable Probes are primarily intended for use with our Tibbo Project System (TPS) devices. Each Probe has a Tibbit counterpart and you can think of CP devices as "Tibbits on a cable." Of course, you can wire the Probes to other hardware as well.

 

At the moment, Tibbo offers four Probe types:

Ambient temperature sensor (CP#01). This Probe is functionally compatible with Tibbit #29. The accuracy of this Tibbit is affected by the internal heat generated by the host TPS device. A Cable Probe is immune to such negative influence by virtue of being outside of the TPS.

Ambient temperature and humidity sensor (CP#02). This Probe is functionally compatible with Tibbit #30. Again, the accuracy of this Tibbit is affected by the internal heat generated by the host TPS device. A Cable Probe is immune to such negative influence by virtue of being outside of the TPS.

Ambient light sensor (CP#03). This Probe is functionally compatible with Tibbit #28. This Probe has an advantage over the Tibbit in that, unlike its Tibbit counterpart, it can be easily pointed in the desired direction.

IR receiver/transmitter (BP#04). This Probe is functionally compatible with Tibbit #27. Again, the advantage of this Probe over the Tibbit implementation is that the Probe can be easily pointed in the desired direction.

 

Cable Probes are inconspicuous and can be mounted on walls and ceilings without attracting unwanted attention. The Probes come with a 100cm cable and are available with and without mounting ears. To simplify the installation on smooth flat surfaces, a double-sided sticker is included with each Probe.
