Q. How many hours does TD-01 Portable work by battery power?

By using specified Alkaline battery, TD-01 Portable works around 24 hours continuously. Other type battery can be used as well.

Q. How many hold value can be stored?

Up to 300 hold data can be stored in TD-01Portable.

Q. How many waveforms can be stored?

Up to 8 waveforms can be stored in TD-01 Portable.

Q. How can I review stored data by PC?

TdDataPicker software allows to review stored data in TD-01 Portable. And it can be downloaded from our web site.

Q. How load-cell can be connected?

TD-01 Portable has input terminal for bare cable and connector for NDIS Japanese standard.

Q. Can both connector and terminal be used at a time?

No, only one connection is allowed.

Q. How does TD-01 Portable read TEDS data?

Calibration completed automatically by reading calibration data from load-cell when booting up. And it can read TEDS data by manually as well.

Q. Can sensitivity information be stored in TD-01 Portable?

Up to 6 cases can be stored in TD-01 Portable.

Q. Can condition of settings be stored in TD-01 Portable?

Up to 6 cases can be stored in TD-01 Portable.

Q. Can it be operated by AC power?

USB bus power available, so you can connect equipped USB cable to USB power adapter.
USB power adapter is not equipped.

Q. Can it be operated by PC USB bus power?

Yes, you can connect equipped USB cable to USB port to supply power.

Q. Can I change the languages?

Yes, you can. You can select English or Japanese.

Q. What is the wire breaking detection?

Estimated wire breaking part is shown as RED color.
It doesn't show estimated part, if wire breaking part are.

Q. What is the static strain function?

Static strain means that strain value when transducer gets no forces. It's called initial strain value as well and if this value is too big, transducer was damaged by overload.
So by checking static strain value, defect of transducer can be detected.

Q. Can I operate by dirty , wet hand?

For this purpose, soft case is available and it protect dust and dripping.

Q. Is carrying case available?

Aluminum hard case CS-TD01is available as an option. Couple of small load-cells are able to put in case.
