TE-CD-TSP 47 Operations Manual
The VFC+ controller contains a microprocessor-based timer that allows for a variety of timing options
• Single Occurrence Timed Event
• Repeating Timed Event (ideal for 1 in X day sample operating protocols)
• Flexible Remotely Triggered Timed Event (requires optional remote trigger cable)
This section documents the possible configurations that can be used with the timer. To access the timer
setup menu, press the “F1” soft-menu function key while the main status display screen is displayed. If
the timer is not currently executing, the Timer Setup menu will be displayed. If the timer is currently
executing, the option to the “Abort Timer” menu will be displayed.
Note: That timer event will not be started while the Timer Setup menu is displayed. For this reason, it
is important to always use the SAVE and EXIT menu item after the timer has been configured.
