Does the DGT2010 support Bronstein Delay in more than one period?

Yes, the DGT2010 version with the blue buttons supports up to four time controls (periods) with Bronstein delay. With Bronstein delay the programmed delay time is added to the main thinking time after the player's turn is ended and before the start of each next move (note: also before the first move this delay time is added to the main thinking time in the display of the clock).

The DGT North American supports multiple US Delay periods. US delay is different from Bronstein delay in that it does not add the delay time to the main thinking time. Instead the clock pauses until the delay time has passed. Globally, in chess, delay options are used less often than bonus options but in the United States the US delay option is widely used.

Contrary to bonus timing methods, with the delay options no extra time can be gained by playing quickly.
