Not sure where this post belongs, but…
Are there any practical instructions out there for a Tobias TCX? I’m apprehensive to ask anything at this point as I’m not even sure how to use it. The manual is thin; web searches have turned up nothing useful so far. I have NO experience with densitometer's…and I’m sure my lack of vocabulary is not helping either.
I’m unsure if I’m zeroing it properly (I’m using the “zero” clicker switch in between readings), I get negative readings as if it’s doing math or something or maybe they’re suppose to be negative numbers...I just don’t know. I may be doing something procedurally wrong, the readings are inconsistent, even reading the calibration standard but could be user error as much as anything else. I havn't calibrated it as I don't understand how to. I really need “operational instructions” at this point I don’t even know what questions I have other than how to use it beyond turning it on, which I may be doing incorrectly as well.
Any information would be helpful...or if someone could lead me to the information I need whether its a book or website I'd appericate it.
