The value size of 850 is a parameter which was originally intended to be used to measure PSI efficiency, but we found that the quality of the signal was not high enough to measure PSI. As a result it's not very useful now, though it can sometimes be used to identify low battery just by coincidence. But for your purposes I'd ignore it :)

Proton Motive Force and DIRK are best described in the literature - search google for Plant, Cell and Environment (2007) 30, 1107–1125 doi: 10.1111/j.1365-3040.2007.01680.x . You should find it. If it's not accessible, shoot me an email and I can send you the pdf version. I hope that helps!
