From what I've found from my research, the probe or surface thermometer must be placed at least 18" (45.72 cm) above the top

of the stove. There is no indication on the maximum but I think it cannot be placed too far from the stove.

Data from SBI Heating Accessories for a probe thermometer:

Magnetic surface thermometer on a HEPA stove: make sure that the temperature does not exceed 475F (246C).
