ENG Screen

SPI Button

The Sweeping Performance Index can be weighted to allow the sweeper to focus the force or frequency aspects of their technique. For example, setting the slider more toward frequency will cause this factor to be weighted heavier in the SPI calculation. This means to achieve the same SPI as with an even weighting, the sweeper will have to apply a higher force to compensate the offset. Our recommendation is to leave this value set to an even weighting in most cases.

USB Button

Connecting the device to a computer via the supplied USB cable and selecting this button will cause the device to connect to your computer. Once connected, the device will appear as a removable disk drive called "PT-2 SMARTBROOM". From here you will be able to transfer any sweeping data to your computer for use with the spreadsheet software of your choice. Please note that in some cases it can take a few minutes for the device to fully connect to the computer, when properly connected the screen will display "USB YES". Exiting the ENG Screen will cause the device to disconnect.

Wipe Button

This will permanently remove ALL sweeping data from the broom. This action requires double confirmation and will take a couple of minutes to complete.

The Externals

Sleep Button

Push this red button to put the device into a deep sleep mode, push again to wake it up. This is a low power state used to conserve battery life. It is recommended to put the device to sleep when not in use. Just like a cell phone the device is not "truly" off in this state and will continue to consume a small amount of power. Make sure your unit is charged with the home screen battery level indicator prior to use.

USB / Charging Port

This is a standard USB port used to charge the device and transfer saved sweeping data to a computer. The device can be charged via the included wall charger or from a USB port on your computer. Please note that the sensor package must be attached for the battery to charge.

Sensor Connector

The cable from the broom head with the sensor package will plug into the port. When connecting the broom head sensor package, please ensure the cable does not interfere with the motion of the broom or become stressed while the broom is in use.
