AMF CONTROLLER: selecting a Mode of operation

When you apply the DC supply, a Bernini Design AMF controller displays the version of the software and the date of production. The modes of operation are selected by means of push buttons and indicated by means of green luminous indicators. Every time the power supply is switched on, if the AMF controller was in TEST or AUTO prior to power down, the AMF controller returns to the “AUTO”  mode. In the other cases, the AMF controller will enter the OFF mode. The following table indicates the modes of operation (example of BE142 AMF controller).
