Another auto calibration hight map question..

Can some one check this out and maybe help me find out what could be causing this reading? Ive been sing the duet for over 2 years, and have never been able to get the my RMS readings under 0.300mm. Not sure what could be the issue.
I can print fine for the most part in the center of my bed, but as soon as try to use the full bed i get problems. I want to finally chase down the perfect layer height
Heres my config file

Thanks in advance!
It looks like you are getting inconsistent Z probe trigger height. What type of Z probe are you using, and what is the bed surface?

Has always been the IR sensor you designed. And the bed has always been blue painters tape. In this round I went with a very scuffed pei plate. But the height maps never really change.
I find that the IR sensor gives very good results when used with blue tape. However, it only works well with PEI if the underside is painted black and the surface is not scuffed. This is because ordinary PEI sheet is transparent to IR.
I have a sheet of black PrintBite which is waiting to be tested with the IR sensor. The black version should be opaque to IR, so I am hopeful that it will work well.
For delta printers, nothing beats a nozzle-contact sensor, such as the Smart Effector or perhaps the Precision Piezo. Most other sensors such as BLTouch have to be mounted so far from the nozzle that they are sensitive to the slightest amount of varying effector tilt, which gives rise to a different set of problems.
