Setting up with a terminal program

Connecting

The sensor is terminated using a MCBH6M connector with the following pin-out:

PinFunction
1Ground
2Power
3RS232 Sensor Receive
4RS232 Sensor Transmit
5RS485 A
6RS485 B

MCBH6M

Communicating

  1. Connect sensor to power and control system
  2. Select correct com port
  3. Select speed = 115200, Data = 8bit, Parity = none, Stop bits = 1, flow control = none
  4. All lines should be terminated with a CR

Once set-up is complete, turn on the sensor. The sensor will beep once and the following will be displayed:

note

Ensure the internal clock is set prior to activating any other menu functions.

If you are using a parsing script on a connected microprocessor to access the menu functions and change the parameters in the sensor you will need to write a script that issues commands mimicking accessing the Primary Menu.
