WARNING: Use this feature with caution. Writing an incorrect value, or writing to the wrong register could cause the circuit monitor to operate incorrectly.
Write a value of 1110 to register 7700 by following the steps below.

  1. Press the MODE button until the red LED next to [Setup] is lit.

The circuit monitor displays ConFig.

  1. Press the down arrow SELECT METER [Value] button until diAg is displayed.
  2. Press the PHASE [Enter] button to select the Diagnostics mode.

The circuit monitor displays the password prompt P - - - -.

  1. Enter the master password.

To enter the password, use the SELECT METER [Value] buttons to increase or decrease the displayed value until it reaches the password value. Then press the PHASE [Enter] button.
The circuit monitor display alternates between rEg No (an abbreviation for register number) and 1000 (the lowest available register number).

  1. Use the SELECT METER [Value] buttons to increase or decrease the displayed register number until it reaches 7700.
  2. Press the PHASE [Enter] button.

The circuit monitor reads the register, then alternately displays the register number (in the format r.7700) and the register contents (as a decimal value). If you are viewing a metered value, such as voltage, the circuit monitor updates the displayed value as the register contents change. Note that scale factors are not taken into account automatically when viewing register contents. 

  1. Use the SELECT METER [Value] buttons to increase or decrease the displayed decimal value until it reaches 1110.
  2. If needed, to abort the register write, press the PHASE [Enter] button.
  3. To write the value, press the up arrow SELECT METER [Value] button to change from No to Yes. Then press the PHASE [Enter] button.

The display flashes, indicating that the value has been written, then returns to the register number.

  1. To leave the Diagnostics mode, press the MODE button while the circuit monitor displays rEg No.
