      true they will read something above and below what i posted but....... below
      it may not be correct and above it can damage them. also the smaller gage 28
      as opposed to 14 the hi limit will be lower "K" #14 2000F 28# 1600F and also
      the manufacture will have different ratings. as with any type of "equipment"
      you should go by "there" ratings. Honeywell may one thing and eclipse may
      say another I use Honeywell for my stuff because my dealer's sales man is
      "to helpful" he really knows his stuff (he has answers to questions that I
      don't know the questions) LOL
