I have just aqcuired a Beseler Audible Timer which is either malfunctioning or I am not using it right. It did not come with instructions, so I am hoping that someone here can explain to me what I am doing wrong, if anything.
This is how I think it ought to work:
With the multiplier switch set to x1, the first knob is seconds (0-10) and the second knob is tenths of a second. Thus a setting of x1, 2 and .5 should give an exposure of 2.5 seconds. Switching the multiplier switch to x10 and keeping the knob the same would give an exposure of 25 seconds.
This is what's happening:
With the multiplier set to x10, the exposure lasts as long as the setting on the first knob, ignoring the values on the second knob. Not what I expected, but not incomprehensible. With the multiplier set to x1, the exposure is more confounding. A setting of 1 on the first knob and 0 on the second gives me an exposure of 18 beeps. A setting of 1 and .5 gives me 14 beeps. 2 and 0 give 28 beeps and 2 and .5 gives me 23 beeps.
Is this thing broken or am I not understanding how this thing works?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
