C to F using Sensor Factory creates sensors with C as units

I've used the KB article detailing how to create F temp sensors from C sensors using Sensor Factory sensors. https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/8453-celsius-to-fahrenheit

However, it pulls the units from the parent sensor. If I change the parent sensor units to F then the Sensor Factory sensor changes units. But then my parent sensor is not displaying the correct units. How can I have the Sensor Factory sensor use F units and leave the parent sensor at C units?

Thanks for your help.

You can define a custom unit for the channels in a factory sensor in square brackets after the channel's name, for example: #1:Temperature Fahrenheit Sensor 3861[°F] ((9/5)*Channel(3861,0)+32)

Kind regards.
