Press Monitoring alerts you if the
press is operated out of sequence. This will catch
mistakes such as short stroking, forgetting to rotate the shell
plate, or any other out of sequence error. This feature can
save you from a double charge, squib, or light
charge round and can prevent injury from a blown up firearm. The best way to understand
this feature is to see it in action in the Press Monitoring video
above. The new model now has 4 inputs so it can monitor up,
down, prime, and rotate if needed. Any sensors not used for
monitoring can be used to generate an error. New simple single
Round Counter and Statistics
- Up to 8 statistics for the current session can be displayed
including: Round Counter, Press Time, Rounds Per Hour (Current
and Total), Remaining Rounds, Remaining Press Time, Powder Measure
(Grains and Remaining Rounds). Three long term
statistics maintain a Total Rounds, Total Press Time, and Total
Rounds Per Hour over all reloading sessions.
Using the Press Monitor is as simple as turning it on and starting to load. Everything is
in plain English on the display. A new simple test sensor
screen has been added in the new model.
Installation is easy
using the included 3M strong double stick tape and requires no
permanent changes to your press.
Powder Tracking keeps track
of the amount of powder in the measure, and can issue a
low powder reminder if you run low. There is
no sensor for this feature as it relies on you to weigh
the powder container before and after adding powder to the measure
so it can calculate how much powder is in the measure. It then automatically deducts the specified
charge weight for each round as you load.
A Press Light lights up even deep
cases so you can clearly see inside and verify the powder level.
Reminders are used to report specific events; they do a quick beep and display on the screen
for 5 seconds, but you are free to continue working right through them. These can be
enabled or disabled depending on the your preference. A
completed reminder lets you know when a desired number
of rounds are done. A powder low reminder
indicates when the powder measure has fallen below a certain level
(see Powder Tracking for more information). A press
maintenance reminder indicates when it is
time to perform press maintenance. An interval reminder
can be set to remind you every so many rounds such as 25, 50,
100, etc. A RPH too fast reminder can be set to tell
you that you are going too fast. A break reminder can remind
you to take a small break and keep
your mind fresh.
