Why does my MyChron 5 display my EGT sensor as a CHT sensor?

You may have noticed by now that often times the EGT sensor will appear on your MyChron 5 or MyChron 5 2T as a CHT sensor.  Is something broken?

Don't worry, everything is fine!

On the default screens in the MyChron 5, there are either one or two places for temperature display.  The data is displayed with a label that changes based on the value of the temperature value.  Below approximately 600 degrees, your EGT sensor will be labeled as a CHT sensor.  You probably notice this when warming your kart on the stand, as you'd be hard pressed to break 600 degrees while revving your motor on the stand!

Don't worry though, your data logger is logging your temperature values under the correct values!
