Digital Gauge FAQ

The explanation of the display and switch.

(1) Explanation of the display (LCD display)

mm:
Indicates the measurement value is mm units. This unit sign is not displayed during the preset setup procedure.

MAX: (maximum)
Indicates maximum display value of the MAX measurement mode. The displayed number will not change unless the measurement input value exceeds it.

MIN: (minimum)
Indicates minimum display value of the MIN measurement mode. The displayed number will not change unless the measurement input value drops off it.

R: (range)
Indicates range (between maximum and minimum values) display of the MAX/MIN measurement mode.

P: (preset)
Indicates the preset measurement function. Measurement will start at the preset value. A flushing "P" indicates that the preset setup procedure is in progress.

AB: (absolute)
Indicates the absolute measurement function. This function selects the zero point as the measurement value when the power is switched on.

B: (battery)
Indicates when the battery voltage becomes equal or less than initial value. When the "B" appears in the display, it is time to recharge the battery or switch to using an AC adapter.
(Recharging method)

E: (error)
Indicates the error display. The error indicates when there is no reliability for the measurement value, and the spindle is moved faster than the maximum spindle velocity. When the "E" appears in the display, press the power switch off and start the measurement again.

▲:
Indicates the direction. The measurement value moves to the plus direction (increment counting) when the spindle is pushed in. If the movement is opposite from above direction, the measurement value moves to the minus direction (decrement counting).

▼:
Indicates the direction. The measurement value moves to the minus direction (decrement counting) when the spindle is pushed in. If the movement is opposite from above direction, the measurement value moves to the plus direction (increment counting). +/-: Indicates the polarity of + (plus) or - (minus) of the measurement value. No sign is indicated when the measurement value is zero

(2) Explanation of the switch functions

POWER: (power switch)
Switches the power ON and OFF.

+/-: (direction switch)
Selects the direction of the counting (increment or decrement). It is related to ▲ ▼ display.

MODE: (mode switch)
Selects the MAX/MIN measurement mode. This switch can be used to change the measurement function as well.

RESET: (reset switch)
Resets the display value to zero. This switch can be used for the measurement function as well.

(3) Switch operation

The MODE switch and the RESET switch have two operation methods to change the functions. To change the measurement function, press and hold for around two seconds.

The following diagram is the list of the operations.

○: Press the switch briefly and release.
Press the switch for a very short term like touching it.

●: Press the switch and hold for around two seconds.
Press the switch and hold for a while around two seconds. When the display is changed, it is time to release the switch.
