I would like to program a rate of 4.2 degrees per hour in the Sentry 12-key controller. Is it possible to program a fraction of a degree?

The Sentry controller rate is programmed as degrees per hour in whole numbers. There is a way to program in tenths of a whole degree, however.

First, we would need to configure your controller to program a rate in degrees per minute instead of degrees per hour. (At the factory, we can configure the Sentry 12-key controller rate as degrees per hour, which is the default; degrees per minute; or as elapsed time needed to reach a particular temperature.)

After the controller is configured as degrees per minute, you can then program a heating rate of 0.07 degrees per minute, which is the same as 4.2 degrees per hour.
