Error is detected automatically, and the RUN indicator flashes green as notification. (See note 3.)

Note 1: This is the estimated time before brightness is reduced by half at room temperature

and humidity. It is not a guaranteed value. The service life will be drastically shortened

if PT is used at low temperatures. For example, using the PT at temperatures of 0

°

C

will reduce the service life to approximately 10,000 hours (reference value).

Note 2: The brightness cannot be adjusted much.

Note 3: This function does not indicate that the service life has been reached. It detects when

the backlight is not lit due to a disconnection or other errors. Backlight error detection

indicates that all backlights (2) are OFF.
