In this how to video, we will cover resetting a ProSense digital panel meter back to factory default configuration.
I am currently using a DPM3 meter.
AutomationDirect's new ProSense line of digital panel meters offers a simple and cost-effective solution to display analog process, temperature, load cell, and potentiometer inputs. With all models, configuration parameters can be totally or selectively locked out to prevent unauthorized or accidental changes to the meter's operation. Two-point direct or reverse acting linear scaling values can be entered manually or by introducing actual sensed process values in Teach mode. Models feature IP65-rated meter faces and are available with 1/32 and 1/8 DIN housings to take up minimal panel space.
In this HOW TO video, we will cover resetting a Prosense digital panel meter back to factory default configuration. I am currently using a DPM3 meter. The DPM1 models with relays can be set back to factory default the same as the DPM3. So for example, a DPM1-T model does not have a factory default setting. The DPM2 models however are a little different to set to factory default configuration. Let's cover the DPM3 first: First, I press the Enter button and it displays Program mode. Press and hold the Up button or on this panel it is also labeled as the TARE button for 3 seconds or longer until it changes screens and you see two digits with zero zero. If you see anything other than two digits with zero zero, you are in the wrong mode. In order to return to factory default configuration we change the first digit to a seven by pressing the up arrow button. Now press the right arrow button to change digits and use the up arrow to change to the number to four as the manual specifies. We should have seventy four displaying now. Press Enter and now you will see the display reading that it is loading default configuration and returns to store. Now the unit is back to factory default configuration, the program has been wiped clean and you can now reprogram the unit. Now, let's cover the DPM2 model. First we press Enter and we go into the program or setup mode. While Pro displays, we press and hold Enter this time until we see 2 digits flashing. Now we enter the same number we did on the DPM3 unit seventy four. We press Enter and it goes back to all zeros on the display. If you notice, this DPM2 does not give us a message letting us know it is back to factory default but the all zeros does. Now this unit is back to factory default configuration, the program has been wiped clean and you can now program the unit. I hope you found this video useful and follow us to our other How to videos on the ProSense Digital Panel Meters. Thanks and have a great day.
