Frequently Asked Questions
What does "-P" mean?
This indicates low power, or battery. Please replace the batteries.
What would cause the unit to read SAT?
The SAT icon means that the sensor is saturated. This occurs when the unit is not allowed ample time between uses. For example, frequent testing without allowing the moisture to evaporate from the sensor can cause the unit to cease measuring and display the SAT error message. You should stop and wait at least 30 minutes after drinking, eating or smoking before performing an alcohol test. This will help avoid contamination of the gas sensor and guarantee the most accurate measurement.
How many times do I need to push the button to get the SAT off?
The SAT message will turn off after the liquid has evaporated from the alcohol sensor. This time does vary, and mainly depends on what contaminants have been deposited on the detector. It sometimes may require several tries before the device becomes ready to measure again.
