Brymen BM869 and the mysterious 869-P9 display
« on: February 27, 2015, 08:19:18 am »
Rather than reopen an old thread, containing the following...

I just made an interesting new discovery. If you hold the REL key while powering on, the display shows "869-P9".  Any ideas what this means?
...I'm wondering whether it's not "P9" at all but rather 7-segment display speak for "Pg"? ...perhaps the first step in setting the meter into "Program" mode so that the firmware can be updated over the USB interface  ::)

I guess I should ask Brymen now I am selling their meters. I might not be able to tell anyone though!

I'm guessing it has something to do with the firmware version. I have the BM867 and it also shows 869-P9 when holding down REL on power-up.

On my Brymen BM821, it shows 82-d when I hold down REL on power-up.

Yes, I forgot to ask Brymen. I will get on it. Like I said, I might not be able to reveal their answer.
