Question

Is it possible to display only "+" and "-"?

Answer

Yes, it is.

Models with binary-coded decimal (06 models) are available that display "+, -, +, -. . ." rather than "0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 . . . 9".

The models are the A7[]-206-PM and A7[]-206-PM-1.

Example:

Thumbwheel Switch
A7BS-206-PM

Output Code:

The signal between output terminal 1 and the COM terminal of the Thumbwheel Switch is used as the binary code.
