    I didn't make it, I just tested it.

    I think everyone should put it around their neck and experience what their dog is going to experience...at least once

    Think of it as giving you more levels at your fingertips. Having a Low, Medium for for the bulk of your collar work at the dial level you typically work your dog, but an instant "hotter" level at your fingetip by pressing both buttons simultaneously (High). It's quicker having that higher level on the buttons, as opposed to having to turn up the dial.

    It's kind of like a tractor transmission...... 1st gear in a higher range is usually slower than high gear of a lower range. It allows more range (overlap) of intensity within a dial setting.

    I went back and checked again... 4 low weaker than 3 high, 3 low weaker than 2 high, 2 low weaker than 1 high.... Significantly.

    This is the same frustration I had when I called Tri-Tronics..."I think it goes from L1 to M1 to H1...etc." but couldn't tell me for sure. I would think that a manufacturer of this product would know exactly how their product works.

    It seems obvious to me that if you are searching for the least possible intensity to get the dog to respond this would be pertinent information.

    BTW the owners manual doesn't tell you either, as one poster suggested. That's why I called TT.

    Does anyone know definitively how this piece of equipment works? An engineer designed it so someone should know.

    Thanks Bill. I was typing while you were posting.

    It's really confusing, until you actually use it.
    But, basically the dial changes the amplitude, and the low, med, and "high" buttons increase the cycles.

    So, a 3 High is three times as "strong" as a 3 low. It doesn't have three times the voltage. It has two extra phases.

    And the momentary duration time is also increased going from a low, to a medium, and to a high.

    So a high nick just last longer than low or med, therefor a continuous gives you a forth level????????????

    I just got done puttin this thing on the inside of my wrist and would say on CONTINUOUS, the intensity follows the 1L, 1M, 1H, 2L, 2M, 2H, 3L .......etc.

    But in MOMENTARY, 2H is definitly percieved as "hotter" than a 3L. I believe it's got to do with the duration of the stimulation.


    Glad this was posted, made me learn something. Good luck with your new pup.

    I agree with you entirely, and from some other posts where people have tested the receiver themselves and gotten results showing results that do not follow the sequential order, that I have apparently been mislead to believe, guess maybe I will contact TT myself and get some clarification.
