Reutech Digital Compass
The RDC offers the opportunity to achieve much more in a far shorter time span, enabling mapping of multiple structures in a fraction of the time spent using conventional means. The elimination of tedious tasks such as levelling a unit or ensuring the unit does not move before reading the measurement guarantees a seamless experience when using the device. An intuitive menu provides a single button interface. Taking measurements and activating, cycling through, or selecting menu items is all achieved by either a long or short button press.
Once all measurements have been taken, the data is rapidly transferred via Bluetooth to a PC application for viewing.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
The lifetime is dependent on the measurement and Bluetooth usage, which makes the lifetime of the battery difficult to specify.It is important to keep these functions to a minimum when not taking measurements or downloading data.
Clock-wise to close and anti clock-wise to open.
Do not over turn or the locking mechanism will be damaged.
Once open press the battery retaining clip to the side away from the battery to release it.

Taking a measurement
How do you position the instrument on the joint face to get the right dip and dip direction measurement?
Connect to the RDC via Bluetooth on the Manager PC application first. Follow the procedure in the manual to read and save the data stored on the device.
The user is able to set the magnetic declination via the Manager PC application.
A value of 0 (zero) indicates no magnetic declination.
Hold the device in your hand and move it around in a figure of eight movement for a minute or two to generate the calibration data.
Once the device has sufficient data it will perform the calculation and exit the calibration menu.
This could be from metallic objects in the vicinity and includes wrist watches and cell phones.
This is no different for an analog or digital compass of any type.
The user should achieve better than ±2⁰ accuracy with minimal external interference.
Does the compass measure dip direction with respect to magnetic declination and is the correction made after the measurement is done?
To pair you first need to enable BLE on the device.
Run the Manager PC application and click on BLE Connection and follow the steps.
Once the device is connected to the Manager the icon on the device will change and the Manager will show the connection status and device information.
Select BLE On and then execute with a long press.
A radio icon will appear on the device display.
Once the Manager PC application has connected the icon will change to the standard Bluetooth icon.
A LONG press either enters the Menu option or confirms the option selection.
A SHORT press cycles through the menu options.
