First advices
-
Upon arrival of your TAG Heuer display, first take away the two screws that fix the plexiglas.
Slide it to the left before removing it totally. Detach the protection plastic and put the plexiglas
back in place carefully. This operation is easy to do if the display is laid down horizontally.
-
Always keep your display clean and free of dust. To get rid of dirt, use a soft wiper for the
plexiglas, then a humidified towel. Never clean the plexi with a dry towel ! This could scratch
your display. When you pull out the plexi, be sure it is clean.
-
To make good use of this user manual, we advise to first read the concerned chapter, and
than undertake the descriped action according to the manual. This way, your first steps with
the TAG Heuer display will be extremely simple !
In general
-
Upon arrival, your display should be programmed according to the application that you
mentioned. However, your display can be programmed for many applications. We advise to
carefully read ‘Chapter 2 – Programming’.
-
The positionning of the digits can easily be changed. Pull out the plexi, take away the
separations between the digits (which can be used on both sides, either : or .). Losen a bit
the screws on the digits that you want to move, and slide them on the rail. Put back the
separations and screw the digits.
-
Your TAG Heuer display features many great applications. According to the type of use you
make of it, the display can be put in « Economical » also called « Low Consumption » mode.
If your display is exposed to serious bumps (on top of a car for example), your display is able
to check all digits every second. But if your display doesn’t move at all during its
application (on top of a timing hut for example), you don’t need the display to check all its
digits every second, and make an important consumption saving (especially if you work
with an external battery pack) ! Please read ‘Chapter 3 – The economical mode (low
consumption)’ !

Power Supply for TAG Heuer displays
Our displays can be powered in 2 different ways.
1)
using our stabilized 220/110V power supplies, providing 12V DC (8 ÷ 12 Ampers)
2)
by external power pack (car battery for example) providing 12V DC
Important :
The 12V output of petrol generators is not stabilized. We herewith forbit use of these
kind of power supplies with our displays.
Though, it is possible to use the 220/110V output for our power supplies.
Transport
TAG Heuer displays have been developed to assure maximum solidity, whilst keeping volume and
weight reduced as much as possible. However, we strongly advice to transport the display in its
original transport box, when shipped « non-accompaigned ». A transport protection hose has been
planned.

Chapter 1 – The display connected to a timing device
1)
Connect the HL 960-8 power supply cable to the POWER socket on the display, then to the
12V power supply itself, respecting the polarities + (red) and – (black). Also read the
technical specifications of the power supply.
2)
Connect the display to the timing device, or to the computer, using the available ‘data’ cables
(lengths 5 m, 10 m or ‘on request’). For ‘time-of-day’ or ‘self timer’ functions, these cables will
not be used.
3)
First switch on the timing device (or computer).
4)
Switch on the display with the ON/OFF button, where you see
-
during 3 seconds, ‘8’s are shown (or ‘°’ when the display is in « Low Consumption »
mode) on all digits (functional check of these)
-
then, during 4 seconds, the programmed code, corresponding to the used timing device
(see Chapter 2 – Programming)
-
the display is now ready for use

Chapter 2 – Programming (continued)
To change the code of your display, the following points should be READ CAREFULLY :
Principle
•
Immediately after switching on the display (POWER to ON),
-
during 3 seconds, ‘8’s are shown (or ‘°’ when the display is in « Low Consumption »
mode) on all digits (functional check of these)
-
then, during 4 seconds, the programmed code (on the 3 last digits)
X = numbers of the code
•
•
Programming is done using the two-position switch.
(for ‘VALID’, push to the left – for ‘PROGR’, push to the right)
VALID
PROGR
(to confirm)
(to programm)
When, trying to programm the displays’ code, you made a mistake or weren’t able to push
the switch in the 4 second delay, please turn off the display, wait 2 seconds and turn it on
again. This is the only way of returning to the the 4 second delay.
ACTION
1)
Connect the display to its 12V power supply.
2)
Switch on the display (all ‘8’s on all digits).
3)
In the 4 second delay, and in this delay only, push the switch to ‘VALID’, until the number
3 appears on the left
If the switch is not pushed in the 4 second delay, the former code remains !
It allows for programming the 1st number of the code
4)
Push the switch to ‘PROGR’, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number.

Chapter 2 – Programming (continued)
5)
Confirm by pushing the switch to ‘VALID’.
the number 2 appears on the left
It allows for programming the 2nd number of the code
6)
Push the switch to ‘PROGR’, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number.
7)
Confirm by pushing the switch to ‘VALID’.
the number 1 appears on the left
It allows for programming the 3rd number of the code
8)
Push the switch to ‘PROGR’, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number.
9)
Confirm by pushing the switch to ‘VALID’.
The number 1 disappears. All ‘8’s on all digits. Then, during 4 seconds, the new code.
10)
Your display can now be used.

plus 3 digits (competitor n°) if you are working with a 9 digit display.
(these digits will be empty during the programming-process)
Page 7/11
Chapter 3 – The economical mode (low consumption)
If your display is exposed to serious bumps (on top of a car for example), your display is able to
check all digits every second. But if your display doesn’t move at all during its application (on top
of a timing hut for example), you don’t need the display to check all its digits every second, and
make an important consumption saving (especially if you work with an external battery pack) !
Important :
Changing into « low consumption » mode is possible in all different applications,
exept for the automatic modes (which means those starting with the number ‘7’) ! ! !
Here under, we will explain how to proceed in order to configure your display in economical mode :
-
Turn on the display, in another mode than those starting with the number 7.
(Chapter 1 – The display connected to a timing device)
-
Once the display is running (for example with code 801 a running time must be running
on the display) in the programmed mode, you can change the consumption mode just by
pushing the two-position switch to :
VALID
PROGR
to go
to go
Economic
Normal
An indication of whether the display is running in Normal or Economical mode is given while turning
on the display :
‘°’ (number)
‘0’ (zero)
25/09/02
means running
means running
Economically
Normally

Chapter 4 – The display in automatic self timer mode
Of course, the display is programmed in code 700 (or 710 for running time) !
See Chapter 2 – Programming to programm the display.
1)
Connect the HL 960-8 power supply cable to the POWER socket on the display, then to the
12V power supply itself, respecting the polarities + (red) and – (black). Also read the technical
specifications of the power supply.
2)
Turn on your display where you can see :
-
during 3 seconds, ‘8’s are shown (or ‘°’ when the display is in « Low Consumption »
mode) on all digits (functional check of these)
-
Then, during 4 seconds the programmed code (700 or 710)
-
To introduce the average net time, and during the 4 second delay only, you should push
the two position switch to the left to VALID, then immediately to the right to PROGR
and stay at the right, until the number 4 is shown
The display shows
4 3 2 1
3)
Push the switch to PROGR, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number on
digit n° 4 (tens of a second – f.ex. 4 for an average time of 45±10).
4)
Confirm by pushing the switch to VALID. The number 3 appears on the left.
5)
Push the switch to PROGR, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number on
digit n° 3 (seconds – f.ex. 5 for an average time of 45±10).
6)
Confirm by pushing the switch to VALID. The number 2 appears on the left.
7)
Push the switch to PROGR, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number on
digit n° 2 (tens of a second – f.ex. 1 for an average time of 45±10).
8)
Confirm by pushing the switch to VALID. The number 1 appears on the left.
9)
Push the switch to PROGR, as many times as necessary, to obtain the desired number on
digit n° 1 (seconds – f.ex. 0 for an average time of 45±10).
10)
Confirm the introduced average net time by pushing the switch to VALID (45±10) :
The display shows all ‘0’ (or ‘°’) on all digits…
… then the programmed code (700 or 710) during 4 seconds
11)
Once your display is entirely ‘black’, it is now ready to receive the start impulse of the first
competitor on the banana type START input.
Please note that all finish impulses received beyond the introduced average net time
(between 35 and 55 seconds in our example) will not be accepted ! This is to eliminate the
inconvenience of false impulses !
