j. Automatic functions. Depending on previous data entries and model of TD-1337(V)/G being used,
certain parts of a configuration routine are performed automatically. These functions are described below.
1. Messages that contain configuration data that are automatically configured, or messages that
contain configuration requirements that are not applicable in a routine being performed are
2. Data entry points in some multiple-entry messages that are not used are blanked (not displayed).
3. Selected data entry points in some multiple-entry messages that are not used or have data
automatically entered are bypassed by the prompt that designates the active entry point.
Example: Message B would be the next message displayed after entries had been completed for message
A shown below.
q Note that ports 6, 7, and 8 are not displayed. As discussed previously, these ports can ac-
commodate only a balanced interface. Therefore, if these ports are active, they are automatically
q V3 and V4 models do not accommodate an unbalanced interface. Therefore, "UNBALANCED=3"
would be blanked on these models.
q As shown in message A, port 2 is inactive. When operator enters data and then presses ENTR
key for port 1, prompt automatically jumps past port 2 and appears at port 3 in message B.
A "0" is automatically displayed at port 2 (and any other port that was previously designated
q Maximum number of available ports varies between models. The number of ports displayed in
the above message is automatically limited to the maximum available for a given model. For
example, a V2 model has a maximum of two available ports. Therefore, only ports 1 and 2
would be displayed in message B.
k . Terminating a Routine. H is good practice to always press CLR key each time you complete or
terminate a routine. This action clears any message being displayed at this time. If the message is not
cleared, the display automatically blanks in 30 seconds. The next time you or another operator activates
the display, the message reappears. Certain reactivated message displays could lead to confusion or concern.
Example: Assume another operator has performed a configuration routine for training purposes and did
not press CLR key when completed. In the last step of the configuration routine, operator would
abort the routine. Later you activated the display and a message such as "MEMORY LOAD
ABORTED" is displayed. If you did not know that the message was in response to a training
mission, you could not be sure that configuration data in TD-1337(V)/G has not been changed
