The lower knob (2), which controls the lower dials, has three
positions: When all the way in, the lower dials can be cleared
and when pulled all the way out the lower dials are locked against
clearance. When the knob is in the third or half-way position, the
lower dials are split into two sections so that those on the right
are locked against clearance while the dials on the left can be
cleared. The upper knob (1) has only two positions and controls
the upper dials accordingly.


REMARK (1) to the 10s-Carry of the Arithmetic Unit in the CAA-10:
=================================================================
10s-carry is processed together with the body underneath. Because
the CAA-10 has an extension on the left side under the carriage,
there IS 10s-CARRY FOR ALL 20 DIGITS when the carriage is in its
leftmost position! ( In contrary to the CSA-10 and CSAE-10 )
