COMPLETE EDIT MODE OPERATING PROCEDURE
NOTE: EXERCISE CARE WHEN USING THE COMPLETE EDIT MODE AS IMPROPER ENTRIES CAN CAUSE
THE SENSOR READING TO BECOME ERRATIC, INACCURATE OR INOPERATIVE.
Section VI of the PMS II Operator's Manual deals with the Extended Capabilities provided to the operator through
the Limited Edit Mode. Its purpose is to allow the operator to activate and deactivate monitored points, set time
and date, and set logging schedules on the PMS II. These capabilities are made available to the operator when he
enters a three (3) digit combination.
A second Edit mode is available which contains all the functions of the Limited Edit mode, plus adjusting alarm
setpoints, and changing alarm delay times. This Edit Mode, intended for use only by the Chief or Port Engineer, is
accessed by using a different three (3) digit combination than the one which selected the first Edit Mode. it is used
primarily for changing alarm setpoints and alarm delay times. in addition, it can be used for sensor calibration
during system installation or sensor replacement. Care must be taken when using this Edit mode, as accidental
altering of the calibration of a sensor could render that sensor inaccurate or inoperative. The technician who is
entrusted with the combination and access to these capabilities should ensure that unauthorized persons do not
learn the combination.
The purpose of this section will be to describe the operating parameters which can be changed. it is assumed that
the technician has already read and understands the Limited Edit Mode Section of the Operator's Manual (Section
VI. Extended Capabilities). A brief explanation of the commands will be repeated here for convenience.
However, the technician should refer to the Operator's Manual for an explanation of selecting sensors, switches
