TX Delay and Time Out settings in the Transmit section of the 6600M for use with a PGXL

The PGXL manual states "When driving the amplifier with a FLEX-6000 Series transceiver, set the TX Delay to 10 ms or more. Both the LAN and PTT keying outputs to the amplifier are modified by this setting. See the SmartSDR Software User Guide, the Maestro User Guide or the FLEX-6400M / FLEX-6600M User Guide for information about setting TX Delay."

However, the Transmit section of the 6600M using HW Ver: has a TX Delay (to be set = or > 10) but also has a "Time Out(min)" box - which is not described in any User Guide. 

Does anyone know the "Time Out(min)"  purpose or setting with a PGXL amp?

    It is just a TOT  "Time Out Timer" for maximum continuous key-down or talk time,  just like on an HT

    3 minutes is typical........if something should fail and key the transmit,,,,,   such as my cat deciding that the foot-switch would be interesting to lay on......HIHI
