How do I change the pressure value from bar to psi?

Post by RYM6746 » Tue Dec 13, 2016 7:48 pm

Hi this is probably a silly question but I am fairly new to the wps 500 in cylinder waveform. As a default it seems to be measuring in bar, as a personal preference I would prefer psi. I had a quick look through the prefrences menu but couldn't see anything obvious. Could someone please point in the right direction? Or am I missing something obvious here? Thanks for your help.

A longer more detailed observation would have revealed: :arrow:

As a memoir,

1 bar = 14.5038 PSi x number of bars is PSI, if it is required to change bar to psi then number of bars pressure divided by 14.5038 = PSI
