For the fluid head height measurements, it is important to know that COMPASS for Pressure handles the calculation the same way as WinPrompt.  Both software packages utilize the L1 and D parameters to take advantage of the scribe mark for the reference plane on the 2465 and 2485.  The reference plane is near the bottom of the mounting post.  Therefore, when measuring for a fluid head height, you must measure from the reference plane to the DUT.  If the DUT is above the reference plane then it is a positive value, negative value is the DUT is below.
