MODELS
Model
Number
Series 477 Digital Manometers are versatile, hand-held, battery operated manometers
available in several basic ranges from 0-20 in.
H2O up to 0-150 psid. All models measure
either positive, negative or differential pressures with ±0.5% of full scale accuracy. You
can select from up to nine common English
and metric pressure units so conversions are
not necessary. A memory function allows
storage of up to 20 readings for later recall
and a backlight provides auxiliary lighting for
hard-to-see locations. Also standard are a
hold feature plus both visual and audible overpressure alarms.

INSTRUCTIONS
Battery Installation
The unit is shipped with a separate 9 volt alkaline battery which must be installed before
operation. Remove the two screws holding the bottom endcap in the place and remove it.
Connect the battery to the enclosed battery clip observing correct polarity. Be careful not
to trap wires between the battery, case or foam pads which retain the battery. This could
make it difficult to install the battery or remove it later for replacement. Be sure the rubber
gasket is properly seated in the gasket channel and replace endcap. Note that the endcap
will only fit one way because the holes are slightly off-center. Place the “Z” shaped wrist
strap clip in one of the screw recesses and replace the screws. Do not overtighten. Attach
wrist strap to clip.
When battery replacement becomes necessary, use only a 9 volt alkaline type such as a
Duracell® MN1604, Eveready® 522 or equivalent. Zinc-carbon types, often labeled Heavyduty are not recommended because of the increased potential for leakage. Alkaline batteries are also a better value because they last up to three times longer in this device.
On-Off Operation
The on-off control is a toggle function. Press the ON/OFF key once to turn unit on; again
to turn it off. If the manometer is left on with no activity for approximately 20 minutes, unit
will turn itself off to conserve the battery.
Display Backlight
The Model 477 includes a display backlight to allow use in the dark or in poor lighting
conditions. Units must be switched off before this feature can be activated. Next, press and
hold the ON/OFF key down. After about 1 second the backlight will come on and remain
lighted for approximately 2 minutes after which it will turn itself off to conserve battery life.
Zeroing Pressure Reading
Potential inaccuracy due to temperature effects can be minimized by re-zeroing immediately before use. To zero the display, vent both ports to atmosphere so no pressure is
applied to either port. Press the ZERO/STORE key and - - - - will be momentarily displayed
as zeroing occurs. Zeroing is not possible when the memory mode is in use. It must be done
before selecting that function.
If the unit is accidently zeroed with pressure applied to one of the ports, internal circuitry might detect an error and display ALARM 1 or ALARM 2 at the top of the readout area.
Additionally, if the ports are then vented, the audible overpressure alarm may sound continuously. This will not normally cause harm it the maximum pressure has not been exceeded. To correct the fault, vent the pressure ports to atmosphere and press the ZERO/STORE
key to zero the unit. The fault will then be corrected.

Pressure Connections
Dual size barbed connections are provided to fit both 1/8″ and 3/16″ I.D. rubber or vinyl tubing. For a single positive pressure, connect tubing to port marked + and vent opposite port
to atmosphere. For a single negative pressure (vacuum), connect tubing to port marked and vent opposite port to atmosphere. To measure differential pressure, connect higher
pressure to port marked + and lower pressure to port marked -. Manometer will indicate the
difference between the two.
Selecting Pressure Units
Up to nine pressure units are available. The display will indicate the current selection. To
change to different units, use the UNITS/LOC key. Each touch will cause an advance to the
next choice. The selected units will remain in memory even when power is shut off. This
way, your preference will always be displayed after the initial selection.
Display Hold
There may be situations where you want to temporarily retain a reading. The Model 477
includes a Display Hold feature which freezes the current reading and holds it in the display
until cleared. To activate this operation, momentarily press the HOLD/MEMORY key when
the pressure you want to save is displayed. A HOLD indicator will appear in the display to
indicate that the reading shown is frozen. To return to normal operation, press the
HOLD/MEMORY key again.The HOLD indicator will disappear and the current pressure will
again be shown.
Memory Function
A memory function is included in the Model 477 that allows you to store up to 20 pressure readings for later review or recording. This feature is especially valuable for making a
traverse of duct velocity pressures with a Pitot tube or for multipoint pressure measurements. The readings are stored in non-volatile memory so they will be retained even if the
unit is shut off or the battery is removed.
Entering Memory Mode
To enter the memory mode, press and hold the HOLD/MEMORY key until the MEM indicator appears in the display. The key can then be released. The active memory location will
be shown in the small lower left numeric display. Initially it will read 01.
Storing Pressure Readings
To store a reading, press the ZERO/STORE key. The reading will be stored under the
indicated memory location and a beep will sound indicating that the reading has been
saved. As each reading is saved the memory location display will advance to the next number. Note that in the memory mode, the display zero function is not available. To zero the
display, you must first exit the memory mode and then press the ZERO/STORE key.

Viewing Stored Readings - Selecting a Location
To view the contents of memory the unit must first be in the memory mode. The current
pressure is not displayed. To distinguish the memory display from a current reading, the HOLD
indicator will be shown. Each time the UNITS/LOC key is pressed, the memory location will
advance to the next stored reading. If the key is held down, the unit will automatically scroll
through the stored readings until the key is released. This procedure can also be used to select
a specific location to store a new reading. To resume pressure measurement, press the
HOLD/MEMORY key. The HOLD display will disappear and the display will again show the current pressure. The last viewed memory location will remain displayed. The next time a reading
is stored it will be saved in the indicated position.
Clearing Memory
To clear the contents of memory the unit must first be in the memory mode. All previously
stored readings can then be cleared by holding the ZERO/STORE key and simultaneously
pressing the ON/OFF key. During this operation - - - - will be displayed. Once memory is
cleared, the current pressure will be displayed and the memory location will be reset to 01.
Exiting Memory Mode
To exit the memory mode press the HOLD/MEMORY key. The memory indicator will disappear. All readings stored in memory will be saved for later review.
Overpressure Alarm
A visual indicator and audible alarm are provided to alert the operator that pressure has
exceeded the operating range of the unit. Exceeding the range will not damage it or affect calibration as long as the maximum rated pressure is not exceeded. Do not exceed the maximum
rated pressure of the manometer. Doing so will cause permanent damage to the sensor,
may rupture the housing and/or cause injury. The maximum pressure is shown on the rear
label and on page 1 of these instructions.
Low Battery Indicator
A weak battery can cause improper operation or inaccurate measurements. A low battery
indicator is provided on the display to show when the battery needs replacement. Although the
unit might appear to function and indicate properly, the accuracy of readings cannot be guaranteed when the LOW BAT indicator is illuminated. Replace the battery with a fresh one. Do not
leave an exhausted battery in the unit due to potential leakage.
MAINTENANCE
The Series 477 Handheld Digital Manometer is not field serviceable and should be returned if
repair is needed (field repair should not be attempted and may void warranty). Be sure to
include a brief description of the problem plus any relevant application notes. Contact customer
service to receive a return goods authorization number before shipping.
