Configuration Switches

   
 
The configuration switches, situated on the ARTA 80 analyser's recessed connector panel, allow certain less-used functions to be selected when required.
The table below shows all configuration switch functions and may printed to serve as an aide-memoir. For full descriptions of the functions consult the handbook.
