Wrong temperature sensor for focus limits?

Hi,
Previously, I've been setting limits to re-focus on temperature change of 1.0° during capture sequences.
I think that this worked well, until I switched my main camera from a DSLR to a cooled astro camera.
Now, the capture sequence seems to read the temperature sensor of the camera, instead of the one in the focusser (ZWO EAF).
As this is a cooled camera, this temperature essentially never changes, so it can not trigger a re-focus.

Is there a way to select the temperature sensor to read from for the focus limits?

Hi Steffen, I have the same focuser (ZWO EAF), where can I check the temperature? In the tab of Focus, I select the sensor temperature (in my case ZWO EAF) but I don't see the temperature.
Could you help me? Thank you so much.

BR,
Germán.

Thanks!
I have been so blind! Even after knowing where to look, it took quite some time to find it! No idea why...

@Germán: You can read the current temperature value in the Indi control panel.
After selecting the right source sensor, you can also see the temperature in the graph in the "Analyze" tab after checking the "temp" box.
