)
1.
On/Off: Holding this button down for several seconds turns the LCD display on or
off. The display will automatically shut off after a period to conserve battery power.
2.
Hold: This button keeps the same reading on the display, even if the level’s angle
changes. Everything on the display will flash except the number while the reading is
being held. Press the button again to stop holding the reading.
3.
0% (percent): This button switches the LCD display between displaying the angle in
degrees and displaying the angle as a percent difference from 0° or 90°.
4.
Calibrate (Zero Setting): This button toggles between reading 0 at the current angle
and reading the actual angle. Press the “Calibrate” button once to change the current reading to 0° or 0%. Press the “Calibrate” button again and hold it to restore the
level to reading the actual angle. The level will reset to reading the actual angle if it
is switched off.
Note: Actual calibration of the level (changing the actual angle setting) is not done
by this button and needs to be performed by a qualified technician.
.
Sound: This button toggles the sound. When the sound is on, the level will
beep once when it measures any 10° increment and more than once when it reads
0° or 90°. A symbol – • )) – will appear above the decimal point on the display and
the unit will beep to indicate that the sound is on.
