The scoop is you can enter deflection values in different units and the software will figure out what you mean. For example, you can enter the value 0.31 as zero-point-three-one or point-three-one or as three-one. Whether the units are millimetres or tenths or hundredths is now inferred and normalized for you. This is a time saver if your decimal key is far from the number row and, like me, you’re without a numeric keypad. It’s especially helpful if you’re entering data with one hand while holding the tensiometer in the other. Existing functionality is not affected so the change can’t hurt.
This is small update but saving a keystroke or two on every entry adds up to a cumulative savings. I hope wheelbuilders (who understand a lot of tiny operations add up to something remarkable) will appreciate the change. Making things better and continuous improvement are always on my mind. If you have any comments to share, please send a message. I know there are users as far away as America, Brazil, Britain and Japan. Your feedback influences future enhancements.
