Measurement State:

  • RUN – next measurement will start automatically as soon as current one is over. Pressing RESTART in this state starts new measurement, measurement state remains RUN. Pressing RUN/HOLD in this state changes the state to SINGLE, but current measurement continues. Exception is Totalize measurement functions, when state is changed to HOLD.
  • SINGLE – measurement is in progress. After measurement is over – measurement state will change to HOLD, no new measurement will start. Pressing RESTART in this mode starts new measurement, measurement state remains SINGLE. Pressing RUN/HOLD in this state stops the measurement and changes state to HOLD.
  • HOLD – measurement is not active. Results of previous measurement are displayed. Pressing RESTART starts new measurement and changes state to SINGLE. Pressing RUN/HOLD in this state starts new measurement and changes state to RUN.
