INTRODUCTION
The Ultra Scale Master Pro
has been specifically
designed for residential
and light commercial
builders and contractors
requiring area and
volume take-offs. Use
it for estimating project
materials and costs, for
measuring, storing and
calculating perimeters,
areas, and volumes from
architectural plans and
other types of scaled
drawings. Use the
Ultra Scale Master Pro to
calculate the area and
volume of irregular shapes;
it can also be used as a
digitizer. A PC interface
is included to enable data
and measurements to be
sent to PC applications.
The Ultra Scale Master Pro
may be used with or
without a PC.

GETTING STARTED
Once assembly and setup are complete, proceed with the following steps in
order to begin measuring.
1. When placing the bars and securing the drawing, make sure that the
bars are at least 1" from the outermost measurements.
2. It is essential that the bars remain fi xed relative to the drawing’s
position. Scribe a line to mark the initial location of the bars as a
reference point should the bars shift.
3. The Puck should maintain a 45° angle within the bars while measuring.
4. Ensure that the measuring surface is flat and smooth. Make sure there
are no folds, tears, or raised areas of the plans.
5. Make sure there are no objects between the Puck and the bars. This
includes hands, arms, pencils or pens, USB cable, cups, scale rulers, etc.
6. Make sure that no air current is blowing directly into the measuring
area. Air blowing into the measuring path can result in no
measurement reading.
7. To get accurate measurements, make sure that the Puck and the bars are
close to the ambient temperature of the work environment.

KEY DEFINITIONS
MEASURING KEYS
The keys shown are used
for taking measurements on
the blueprint and operating
the display (D-Pad key).
[END]
Ends polyline measurement,
displaying the total perimeter.
Also ends the 2-Point Circle
measurement when measuring
a diameter, displaying the
circumference (perimeter).
[CLOSE —]
Completes the Polygon or a
2-Point Circle and displays the
calculated area. Results are
identified as negative values.
When measuring a Polygon, this
key connects the last measured
point to the start point.
10 — ULTRA SCALE MASTER PRO
®
Important Notes
regarding the
[ON/CLEAR] key:
[ON/CLEAR]
Turns the unit ON and clears
the display. Holding down the
[ON/CLEAR] key for 1.5 seconds
also powers the unit off.
[CLOSE +]
Completes the Polygon or a
2-Point Circle and displays the
calculated area. Results are
identified as positive values.
When measuring a Polygon, this
key connects the last measured
point to the start point.
[MEASURE]
Takes a measurement between
points.
If [ON/CLEAR] is pressed
during measurement,
the last measured point
is undone and the
previous measurement is
displayed. A second press
of [ON/CLEAR] ends the
measurement (as if the
[END] key was pressed) and
clears the main display.
During an Arc or Circle
measurement, however,
a second press of [ON/
CLEAR] exits the Arc
or Circle measurement
mode, discarding any
measured points.
Additionally, if an error
message is displayed
during a measurement,
pressing [ON/CLEAR]
clears the error message
and displays the previous
measurement.
USER’S GUIDE — 11
FUNCTION KEYS
[UNDO]
Undoes the previous measurement.
Allows you to undo the last 10
measurements (if applicable) while in
measure mode. If a measurement has
been closed or ended, it will undo the
close or end action and the previous 9
measurements upon repeated presses of
[UNDO].
[SET]
Used in conjunction with the [HEIGHT]
and [SCALE] keys to set a Height or
Custom Scale (See Setting a Height and
Setting Custom Scale sections.) Also used to
access secondary functions (e.g., M-, MC).
[M+]
Adds the displayed value to accumulative
Memory (except when setting a Height or
Custom Scale).
[SET] [M+] (M—)
Subtracts the displayed value from the
accumulative Memory (except during a
measurement).
12 — ULTRA SCALE MASTER PRO
®
[PC SEND]
When connected to a PC, sends the value
on the main display in decimal format to
the PC (see PC Interface section).

SHAPES AND DEFINITIONS
The Ultra Scale Master Pro can measure Polylines, Polygons, regular or irregular shapes, Arcs and Circles based on the
following criteria:
• Only one shape can be measured at a time
• For a Polygon or Polyline only the last 64 measured sides
can be displayed when viewing side Lengths via the
D-Pad right [4] and left [3] arrows
• Arc measurements are assumed to be part of a Circle
• In Arc or Circle Mode, measurements of ellipses or
irregular Arcs will result in incorrect calculations; the
resulting values are based on the assumption that the
points measured apply to a segment of a Circle
• An Arc or three-point Circle greater than 180° can also
be measured
Definitions and illustrations of some common shapes: Solution examples follow in the User’s Guide:
POLYLINE:
POLYGON: A closed geometric figure bounded by three or more straight lines
A sequence
of connected
straight lines or
a single linear
distance like a
fence line
1. Simple Polygon:
A Square, Rectangle
or Triangle
2. Complex Polygon:
A multi-sided shape
that is not a Square,
Rectangle or Triangle
Note: The diagrams shown throughout the guide are not to scale and the displayed values are not representative of diagrams.
18 — ULTRA SCALE MASTER PRO
®
IRREGULAR
SHAPE
An outline or
surface
configuration
of a form
ILLEGAL SHAPE:
The Area and Volume can not be
calculated for a shape containing
bisecting lines. The Area and Volume of
the shapes resulting from the bisecting
lines can be calculated individually.
ARC:
A segment of a
curve
CIRCLE:
A plane curve
equidistant
from a fixed
center

CUSTOM SCALES
There are two methods for programming Custom Scales
into your Ultra Scale Master Pro. “Measured Custom Scales”
allow you to measure a specified Length and assign the
known value. “Entered Custom Scales” allow you to enter
and set a known scale that is not included within the
available built-in scales of the Ultra Scale Master Pro.
Four Custom Scales can be stored in Imperial and Metric
Modes for a total of eight Custom Scales. Once a Custom
Scale has been set in either mode, it is retained until a new
scale is stored in its place or until an All Clear or Reset is
performed. Switching between Imperial and Metric Modes
does not clear stored Custom Scales.
SETTING A MEASURED CUSTOM SCALE
