We use  This works for both our 7500 and our
7000.  One thing to point out (though it's probably somewhat obvious) is
that you can't rely on it to point out _external_ tempoerature (like the
temperature in your server room) -- only the internal temp, which means
that you can use it to see if things are going bad or if there's a bad
trend, but not for overall temp monitoring.  Which is why we use dedicated
RS232 sensors for that :)
