“Hi, my name is Marina and I am an app engineer at Alicat Scientific. Today, I’m going to show you how to change your display configuration. Let’s get started. 

To adjust the display configuration on your Alicat device, first let’s go to our menu (bottom right button), advanced setup (bottom middle button), and disp setup (top right button). 

There are three different ways that we can adjust how the display looks. First is the LCD contrast on the top left. We can bring this down all the way to one (top middle button for ‘down’) for the lowest contrast setting, all the way up to 20 (top left button for ‘up’), like so.  

Another way that we can adjust the display on your Alicat device is though how it looks when you power the device up. Power up lit will have the display lit up when you power on your device, whereas when you press that button you will have power up dark, so the backlight will not turn on when you power on your device (top middle button to toggle ‘power up lit/dark’).  

Now, the final way that we can adjust the display is through this third option, rotate disp (top right button). If we click the top right button, we can change this to either our default or inverted, which will flip the display 180 degrees. We can click down (top middle button) and set (bottom right button). Now, the display and inverted 180 degrees if you mount the Alicat upside down.  

That’s how you change the display configuration on your Alicat, thanks!
