How to use Reed Ultrasonic Distance Meter (DM-01)

Calculating Area
Firstly, activate the "area" function by Ppressing the “Area” button. Start your area measurement with the first value ( ex: length). Pressing the “READ” button to measure this. Now aim in the next desired location and press the “READ” button again to measure the width. Whit this two values of the measurements the Reed Ultrasonic Distance Meter will calculate the area automatically and will display the area value on the LCD display screen.

Calculating Volume
Press the “Volume” button to enter in "Volume operation" mode. Press the “READ” button to measure the value of length. Aim in the next location and press the “READ” button again to measure the width. Then aim in the final measurement location and press the “READ” button to measure Height. The value of volume will be displayed on the LCD.

Calculating the Sum of Lengths
The SUM function can only be use for length values operations. In metric the maximum sum is 100m, in imperial the maximum is 100ft. Take the first reading of the length that you wish to be summed up by pointing it at the surface you wish to measure and pressing the “READ” button. Press the “Sum” button to begin the sum mode. Make another measurement by pointing and pushing the “READ” button. Press the “READ” button again and the sum will be displayed on the LCD.

Storage of Readings
Reed DM-01 has 10 memory slots. 5 memory slots are available for different length and volume areas and 5 memory units are for sum data storage. The data will be stored until the “ECS/CLEAR” button is pushed or if the battery is replaced. When all of the unit’s memory is full, further storage operation will not be implemented unless the “ECS/CLEAR” button is pressed to delete one of unit’s stored data.
