Digital data output is standard, and the MicroMaxum XL is equipped with an absolute-reading transducer immune to overspeed errors. MicroMaxum XL indicators feature a supplemental bar-graph display scalable to four levels of magnification. The bar graph incorporates flashing elements to indicate out-of-tolerance conditions.
