Question
When the DR900 timer is run on some methods, it appears to skip several seconds. What is causing this?
Summary
Timer skipping several seconds
Answer
On previous software versions, the instrument enters a low power mode after a few seconds of inactivity to conserve battery life. This reduces the processor clocks, which affect the screen refresh rate. The timer itself runs off of its own clock, so it is counting down correctly but the screen is not refreshing quick enough to show the recent time.
