1. USER INFORMATION
Congratulations on buying a Menu Module from Storm Controls,
we are sure that it will give you a long and trouble free service.
4.12 Exit from menu
THE MENU MODULE IS A TOOL THAT ALLOWS THE USER TO ALTER PROGRAMME
PARAMETERS ON PRINTMAN2 RECORDERS WITHOUT THE NEED FOR A PC or
LAPTOP. THE MENU MODULE IS TEMPORARILY PLUGGED INTO THE PRINTMAN
RS232 PORT, THE PARAMETERS SET AND THE MODULE REMOVED FOR USE ON
OTHER UNITS. PLEASE STORE IN A DRY ENVIROMMENT. THE MODULE HAS NO
INTERNAL BATTERY SINCE IT DERIVES ITS POWER FROM THE RECORDER, SO
NEEDS NO MAINTENANCE.
To exit from thePage
main10menu and return to normal operation, the
menu display must be returned to item ‘1.EXIT’ by pressing and
releasing the key
until the ‘1.EXIT’ caption is reached.
Then with the item ‘1 EXIT’ on the screen press
the key.
The recorder will then go through a short up date procedure and
returns the recorder to operation with the new parameters installed.
This Menu Module is designed to operate with Printman2 recorders supplied
by Storm Controls Ltd. and manufactured after August 2009.
(Serial Numbers after SCP 3013 and all SCL SM2 versions)
It will not operate with Printman Recorders manufactured by
Storm Products or Clyde Valley Control Systems Ltd.

shows
On the top Line .
After a few seconds after completion of the boot up routine, the Menu Module is
recognised by the Printman2 Unit and the Menu Module Display begins to show
Information from the boot up routine and then Time, Date and Sensor
Temperature Information, and continues cycling through these parameters as the
Printman2 Recorder processes information from it’s real time clock, calendar
and sensor inputs.
