See Figure 2. TIP — When connecting the cable to the instrument, keep the Trimble logo on the connector upward. Trimble logo Trimble recommends that you take some time to familiarize yourself with the names and the locations of the controls. An LED in the trigger key indicates if the instrument is turned on.
A solid light indicates on and a flashing light indicates suspend mode. Page Face 2 Display When a Trimble CU is attached to the instrument, the software running on the unit controls the face 2 display and keyboard, and determines which secondary functions are available.
For details on how the software controls the face 2 display, refer to the field software documentation.

This is carried out as follows. Page 38 NOTE — To reduce power consumption and extend operation time, Trimble recommends that the Bluetooth device is switched off when not in use. Page Reference Ha To calibrate the compensator, the instrument needs to be in perfect balance.
After calibration the compensator sensor will automatically adjust and allow for changes in that balance caused by the presence of a Trimble CU controller or the absence of an internal battery.
Page 40 Figure 3.
NOTE — Trimble recommends that you regularly carry out a compensator calibration, particularly when measuring during high temperature variations and where the highest measurement accuracy is required.
The calibration process involves the instrument automatically reading the compensator value at a series of predetermined positions through the full rotation of the instrument. Trimble also recommends that the operator keep a record of the dates and values measured so that any gross changes can easily be detected. Gross changes can indicate the need for a check by an approved service center.
