How to use your XRite Pulse DTP20

Lights and Sounds                                  

On the operation button there is a light that changes colour depending on the status.

There is also a beep that changes depending on the status.

The one important are detailed below.

• Green • Solid – Ready to read

• 2 Pulses then solid – Successful read.

• slow pulsing – Chart completely read

• Blue – Clear memory • Yellow – Calibration

• Red – Error • Red/Orange cycling – Downloading data

. Consult the operators guide for a full list of light indications.

• Beep • Single short – Read OK

• Single long Dull – Error

• Double – Successful read Make a linearisation with the Xrite DTP20

As stated above the measurements are made off line i.e. not connected to the Client.

Once all the strips are taken the device is then connected to the computer and the data is downloaded.

1. Print the chart – Although measurements are taken off line the device must be connected to print the chart. Connect the Pulse to the client, start the lineariser, select a pagesetup and device from the list and print the chart. (See “Lineariser” on page 100 in the manual for more info.

2. Clear the pulses memory – Any previously read target data is stored in the device until the memory is cleared.

To clear the memory do the following.

• Press the operation button three times. The light should turn Blue.

• Press and hold the operation button for about 3 seconds until there is a beep and the light goes out The light pulses green twice and then turns to a solid green indicating that the instrument is ready to make measurements.

3. Calibrate the device – It is a good idea to calibrate the device before measurement. You need the Pathfinder with the calibration patch for this. To calibrate do the following • With the instrument on and light indicating solid green, press the operation button 3 times. The light turns Blue.

• Press the button 3 more times and the light turns yellow.

• Place the instrument on the calibration patch and while the light is still yellow, press and hold the operation button to make a calibration. After a few seconds you will hear a short beep, the light will go out for a short time and then pulse green twice to indicate a successful calibration. This is followed by a solid green light indicating the instrument is ready to take measurements.

After a few seconds you will hear a short beep, the light will go out for a short time and then pulse green twice to indicate a successful calibration. This is followed by a solid green light indicating the instrument is ready to take measurements.

c) Put the ruler on the first row then read it.

To read the row with the pulse you can start from the right to the left or from the left to the right, but you have to start to read  before the thick line on the left or the thin line on the right.

Click once on the DTP20’s button then the lamp light on, start to read the row.
