Converters: flash, rated, brake stall

I Have a 3300-3500 Dacco PP3402 Pro-Competition stall converter. I have read a lot of info on different T/C's, but i'm still confused on exactly how they work. I know they let your motor rev to a certain RPM before locking up, and i understand that.
I found these 3 terms in my research, and I don't understand if these are 3 different types of converters, or just ways you can use them? I know Flash is when you mash it to the floor from idle, and brake stall is when you hold on the brake how high your rpm comes up before the tires start spinnin, and rated is what the typical rating is like mine is 3300-3500.

I guess I wanna know if I'll be able to stand on mine at an idle and have it flash to the stall speed or if i have to brake until it locks or what???

Also if anyone is uses Dacco's or knows much about them, How do i find out the SRT (stall rated torque) or (multiplying factor) of my converter??

converters

Thanks for the info guys, but I still can't find much on my particular converter. I'm really curious what the stall rated torque is on my converter. I know they are all different. I have seen some that are 1.6, 1.7, 2.4, 2.6, and so on. I bought my converter from a friend that had it and never used it. It was still new in the box but didn't have a lot of info with it. Even if i go to Dacco's website the SRT is not listed on any of thier converters. If anyone out there can provide this info I would greatly appreciate it.
