Can't see MES display in bright sunlight

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
A small but annoying problem.
Have to block the sunlight from washing out the MES display.

A two pound plastic coffee container and scissors/tin snips makes a "quick and dirty" light shield.

Side view.

A little tape holds it on.
Or, you could get fancy with a couple of magnets.

Good idea ya got there Dale. Plus I'd bet it would keep it dry on a rainy day too.

Much better than leaning over the mes and cupping my hand around the display trying to see those numbers!!

Sounds so familiar!PDT_Armataz_01_30.gif

Thanks for the idea Dale and sharing. It is a minor annoyance, but up until now just something that I have lived with thinking it was just my OLD eyes!

Mod for coffee container

p.s. Works even better if you hit the inside of the coffee container with a little black spray paint. icon_redface.gif

I find a screened in deck works just as well. icon_lol.gif I didn't know the display was an issue as it is nice and bright in the shade. The ceiling fan dispenses the smoke too icon_lol.gif
