- 4.0 - How to modify a parameter
The input boxes accept parameters according to a range (see user manual of
the Be42). The parameters can be changed in three ways:

moved outside the textbox
II. Use the Up / Down buttons near to the text box.
There are the following types of parameters:
General purpose Timer. Select the min (minutes) or sec
(seconds) option and then enter the numerical value. You can use the
Up/Down arrows to modify the module of the timer.

Timer module up to 23 hours. The programming
is allowed in Hour + minutes (no seconds), in minutes only or seconds only.

Decimal values. Use Up/Down to modify the timing.
