The influence of temperature on the set of aneroid capsules and the transmission system is compensated by a bimetal arm over the whole measuring range and for temperatures between -30 to +40 °C (-22 to 104 °F). The motion of the aneroid capsule is transmitted to the axle of the pointer by driving a segment and wheel with an excellent fine finish gearing. All bearings also have an excellent fine finish. The Instruments have only a bare minimum of idle friction because of the advantageous shape of the levers and bearings.
To most experts, this is one of the highest quality aneroid barometers in the world. It has been tested at sea for over 70 years, and used by Navies and Weather Services around the world. The double needle design removes parallax error in reading.
To access the set screw: The bottom of the instrument has a large plug. Use a wide screwdriver to remove this plug to reveal the small screw that sets the instrument as needed. You will find it has a very smooth, positive motion, so you can easily set the instrument to within a fraction of a mb, which is quite the contrary to what is observed in lesser instruments.
The new dials showing both millibars (mb) and inches of mercury have been custom made for American and British users on land and sea. The mb (same as hectoPascals) dial is the international standard for maritime applications.
