For example: In the "manual" under Setting Parameter(sic) you write:

press "SET1", it will show "F-C>SL1>SL2>HDC - Set data accordingly

Define what the parameters "SL1" and "SL2" are

Under "Set 1" you write:

P Default 30
I Default 240
D Default 60

Define what "P", "I" and "D" are in this context.

Nothing makes much sense without knowing what these are and I don't have time for trial and error figuring it.
