  • Graph Area - displays output from the user-selected modes shown in the User Menu Area.
  • Warning Area - displays system Alerts and Advice, generated in real-time, and shown in decreasing order of severity.  Messages from all modes continue to be displayed, no matter which mode is selected. 
  • Parameter Grid Area - shows the current value of measurement parameters, per each cylinder.  Displaying one column for each cylinder, the display auto-adjusts for the number of cylinders in the selected engine.
  • Engine Protection Area - This Area displays the Main Engine parameters (RPM, Power, Cylinder Max Pressure and Cylinder Power).

Notice, also, that the titles for each cylinder are color-matched in all parts of the screen.
