The Survey 200R will now send its “Pairing” signal. When the Solar Utility Pro detects this signal, it will remember the serial number of the Survey 200R, and will look for that particular serial number in all future communications.
When the Solar Utility Pro has successfully paired, it will beep and display connected. This should normally happen within a couple of seconds.
Note: The top line of the Solar Utility Pro display will now show the W/m2 icon.
The Survey 200R can be put in and out of transmit mode by pressing and holding the TEMPERATURE key, and then momentarily pressing the OK (Hold) key.
When in transmit mode there will be a flashing icon above the TEMPERATURE key.
Note: When in transmit mode the auto shut down feature is disabled. You must remember to turn the Survey 200R off in order to save battery power.
Note: If the DC voltage polarity is incorrect or the voltage is greater than 5V or less than 1500V the Test key will be disabled until the problem is corrected.
The Solar Utility Pro can store up to 999 complete sets of measurements.
If there is sufficient memory space to store a set of readings, then the STORE icon will appear, and the readings will be stored in the next available memory location.
If there is insufficient memory space then the buzzer will sound.
If there are no valid readings on the display then nothing will be stored.
By default the Datalogger application will save the data in CSV format. This can be opened using Solar Cert or Microsoft Excel. Note that each row of data will have the readings from the Survey 200R where applicable.
Note: If the Solar Utility Pro has established a Solarlink™ connection to the Survey 200R, the date/ time of the Solar Utility Pro will automatically be synchronized to the date/ time of the Survey 200R.
The Survey 200R real-time clock is the master and the Solar Utility Pro is the slave.
After 1 minute of being idle the Solar Utility Pro will turn itself off in order to conserve battery power. This auto shutdown period can be extended as follows:
Note: once deleted (cleared) from the memory, data cannot be recovered.
Please disconnect the tester from all equipment and make sure it is turned off before proceeding.
The serial number is located in the battery compartment.
Loosen the screws to gain access to the battery compartment, remove the batteries.
The serial number should now be visible under the middle battery.
