YSI IQ SensorNet 2020 XT | Menu Structure



hi my name is Myra Michaels and I work here in tech support at YSI and I like to go over the menu structure of the mi QTC 2020 xt okay in this video I'd like to talk about the menu structure of the mi QTC 2020 xt we have six buttons we have the M button I like to think of that as the main menu button so if you're anywhere in the screens you can press the M button it's going to take you back to this main menu the C button I like to think of as calibrate or sensor check or a matrix adjustment you can do any of those by by accessing or hitting that C button the S button is the settings menu escape will back you out one screen and if you're in a settings menu and you press the ok button it's going to advance one screen the arrow keys will move you up and down and side-to-side through the menu as needed from the main menu the ok button also has an additional screen that you a set of options you can get to so in this case we can take a look at the logbook of the entire system you can look at the logbook of a selected sensor you can switch maintenance condition on and off you can look at the calibration history of a selected sensor recorded measured values of a selected sensor and you can also display all values or local values and you can choose to look at one sensor four sensors or eight sensors on the main display so just to give you an example I'm going to choose to set that to eight sensors and you can see how small the font has gotten once again I'm going to press the ok button to get back in there let's set the measured values to one sensor and you can see how big the font is and you have this bar graph going across the top I personally like to set this at 4 sensors because that's generally what I have on my system now since I have these lights flashing up here that tells me I have something in my logbook and as you can see none of these have been checked marked so I could go into any of these error messages and take a look it tells us a new IQ sensor net component has been identified and it tells me it's movie solid we're gonna go back back to the main menu I'll show you what happens in the calibrate or the see button so whenever you hit the C button you're gonna see this maintenance condition linked outputs are frozen and then it will ask you to continue I'm going to continue just to show you that in this particular says sensor set the TSS and sio2 values you're going to have to refer the operating manual that's because we can't actually calibrate the sensors or the TSS sensor in this menu so I'm gonna go back and hit the M button you can see we are flashing which means I'm in maintenance mode and we're gonna get out of maintenance mode by pressing the ok button going down switch our maintenance condition on and off this asks me if I want to do that I say yes press the ok button to continue and if I press the M button you can see I'm no longer in a maintenance condition so we've kind of kind of gone through the M button and the C button escaped ok and up and down now let's press the yes button this is kind of where all the magic happens this is our settings menu so at the top you see we have language and you can choose from a variety of languages if you want to this data transfer to the usb memory kind of important here you can save your configuration you can put a USB thumb drive you know in into the opening down here and you save your configuration to that thumb drive you can also send or save your measured data storage your logbook calibration history and if you've lost your links and you have your configuration safe to a thumb direct you can put it back in here and you can re transfer your configuration to your system so that you don't have to reprogram everything here we have access control and if you take a look we can lock and unlock the system here we can set a password we can get into extended access control here and we can look at the manual if you if you have further interest in that select value or select measured values of a location if we wanted to take this 20/20 and walk around let's say a larger plant and you had certain sensors in Basin one and you only wanted to see what was in Basin one then you could choose by check marking which sensors you wanted to see when you take this 20/20 to a different location gonna escape and go back one measured value logging so this is where you're going to set up logging in your system the way that that we move through it is a little bit convoluted so I'm going to show you that first we want to highlight like this minutes column and you press ok and that's going to give us you know one single one single option so as you can see I can press up and down and it's not moving I have to press the ok button again in order to kind of drill down into the menu at this point I can choose how often I want to log data so if I choose five minutes I have to press the ok button to lock that in again I'm going to press escape and I can start moving around like to my duration column so now I have zero days duration that I want to log every 5 minutes but if I press the kay button you can see I can't move around I can't change anything unless I press ok again at this point I can change 5 days 10 days I can change 30 days and as I'm changing my days if you look down here to the free storage it is changing the amount of free storage I have so I could go all the way up until I have no free storage to 1,800 days for just this one sensor if I filled it up it would kind of loop back around and the last or the first day that was in would be you know the the first date out so in this case I'm going to make it less than 18 hundred days I'm just gonna make it 10 days press ok to lock that in and then again I'm gonna press the escape button to highlight that entire column so I can start moving around in this in this particular screen go over to save and quit that's ok and it brings me back to the settings menu let's go down to the Edit list of sensors as you can see here I've got the V solid and I could change the sensor name if I wanted to or I could change the sensor name here if I wanted to just by highlighting it and pressing the up and down arrow keys to name it whatever I wanted to I'm going to go ahead and leave it here at that the serial number if I had another sensor in here or if there had been one and it wasn't currently here this might have a question mark next to it that just means that it is not currently seen by the system and you could choose to edit that sensor out or delete that data set okay so from edit list of sensors we can go down to edit list of outputs and here I can name my outputs I could name this basin long basin to whatever I wanted to name it I can name it Fred if I wanted to name it Fred but in this case I'm just going to escape settings of sensors and DIF sensors this one you can look at your sensor choose it and we can make changes to the settings of that sensor so I have a TSS sensor here I could change the measuring mode if I wanted you know matrix like two grams per liter I can go down and change the measuring range I have Auto range or I can choose you know one of the other options but the default is auto range our calibration data it's currently set to default calibration if I did a user calibration which would be value pairs then you would see it it come up as user calibration correction factor default currently set to one our signal averaging the default is sixty seconds and the U and ul cleaning and sensor check that says on on and that's just cleaning the sensor we would save and quit so why don't you or if you just want to you know back out you could either hit the escape where you get hit quit I'm going to escape now let's go down to settings about put some links press the okay button and here you would choose what what for two 20s you wanted to set and then link to what sensor so comes up and you have this ampersand sign this column highlighted you press the ok button to kind of drill down and to choose which in this case I'm going to choose c1 and I'm press ok and it's going to ask me which sense where I want it to link to and since I only have one sensor I could link it to so5 right there as you can see now it's linked now you hit escape to highlight an entire column now I can move back and forth now if I wanted to change my no function to something I could press the ok button and highlight and then move through that screen okay so I'm gonna press the escape button and then we're gonna go down to setting bus interfaces that's an okay here I don't have a Modbus or a bus module on here but if I did this is where I would make my settings alarm settings this menu you can you can set your alarms you can just choose to link to your sensors and set your alarms there system settings this is where you set your date time in your terminal you can change your brightness and your contrast and there you know just several different settings in here that you might find helpful your location and altitude that's where you're gonna change these things I'm down here to service if you call us we're gonna ask you frequently for let's say you're a list of oh you know we'll ask you to get down and tell me what's in your system and you can go to the list of all components and read what's in the system you can also see your software version here acknowledge all messages as you can see I have messages up here flashing which we talked about a little while ago if I acknowledge all my messages I press ok and acknowledge and it just acknowledged all of those messages we had in the beginning of this video factory reset self-explanatory if I wanted to set it back to factory settings so I would just do a factory reset enter command code not something that is normally used sometimes if there is a software update but but rarely has had ever used change the sensor number if your sensors were were miss number then you could come in here and change the sensor number to whatever number you wanted that to be I'll change that to sensor number one press ok and now that is sensor number one long as I hit escape and same that's me basically are you sure you want to do that and execute the change if I needed to do a software update which is available at our website at YSI dot-com you can put your you can download the latest software update to a thumb drive and you can put in a 20/20 and you can do your software update to this device the 20/20 this is if you had an mc2 or something with a USB you could update to a software update on the components you with the USB and this option is to do a software update on any other components such as sensors or cr3 and that's your basic menu structure of the 2020

    Hi, i have a question, i'd like to know if the modul has PROFIBUS or DEVICENET or any standard for fieldbus communication in automation.
