TemperatureController..::..Precision Property

The temperature controller's precision is a measure of how close to the setpoint the mixture needs to be in actuality before the controller will consider the mixture to have reached the setpoint. This is necessary in order to represent the physical case where the temperature controller mode is at, say, a constant 79 degrees, and the setpoint is also at 79 degrees - theoretically, the mixture, unless already at precisely 79 degrees, will not reach the desired setpoint temperature. However, if precision is set to 0.01, then the mixture will be considered to have reached its setpoint when at 78.99, or at 79.01, if being driven up from below, or down from above, respectively. This value defaults to the value of TemperatureController.DEFAULT_PRECISION, which can itself be changed, but starts at 0.01.
