2.1
Apply power
Prerequisites
Before you apply power to the flowmeter, close and tighten all housing covers.
To prevent ignition of flammable or combustible atmospheres, make sure all covers are
tightly closed. For hazardous area installations, applying power to the unit while housing
covers are removed or loose can cause an explosion.
Procedure
Turn on the electrical power at the power supply.
The flowmeter will automatically perform diagnostic routines. For transmitters with a display, the status
LED will turn green and begin to flash when the startup diagnostics are complete. If the status LED
exhibits different behavior, an alarm condition is present.
Postrequisites
Allow the electronics to warm up for approximately 10 minutes before relying on process measurements.
Although the sensor is ready to receive process fluid shortly after power-up, the electronics can take up
to 10 minutes to warm up completely.
2.2
Configuration tips and tricks

the off-line menu for approximately 60 seconds, the display will automatically return to normal
operation.
2.4
Perform a loop test
A loop test is a way to verify that the transmitter and the receiving device are communicating properly.
A loop test also helps you know whether you need to trim mA outputs. Performing a loop test is not
a required procedure. However, Micro Motion recommends performing a loop test for every input or
output available on your transmitter.
Procedure
1.
Test the mA output.
a.
Choose OFFLINE MAINT→SIM→AO1 SIM, and select SET 4 MA or another mA output value.
Dots traverse the display while the output is fixed.
b.
Read the mA current at the receiving device and compare it to the transmitter output.
The readings do not need to match exactly. If the values are slightly different, you can correct
the discrepancy by trimming the output.
Configuration and Use Manual
21
Quick start with the display
c.

Postrequisites
• If the mA output readings were slightly off at the receiving device, you can correct this discrepancy
by trimming the output.
• If the mA output reading was significantly off (±200 microamps), or if at any step the reading was
faulty, verify the wiring between the transmitter and the remote device, and try again.
• If the mA input reading was slightly off at the transmitter, trim and calibrate the input at the
remote input device.
2.5
Zero the flowmeter
Zeroing the flowmeter establishes the flowmeter’s point of reference when there is no flow.
Prerequisites
To prepare for the zero procedure:
1. Allow the flowmeter to warm up for at least 20 minutes after applying power.
2. Run the process fluid through the sensor until the sensor temperature reaches the normal process
operating temperature.
3. Stop flow through the sensor by shutting a valve downstream from the sensor.
4. Ensure that flow has completely stopped through the sensor, and that the sensor is completely
full of process fluid.
5. Check the flow rate. If the flow rate is close to zero, you should not need to zero the flowmeter.
Important
The meter was zeroed at the factory, and should not require a field zero.
Note
Do not zero the flowmeter if a high-severity alarm is active. Correct the problem, then zero the
flowmeter. You may zero the flowmeter if a low-severity alarm is active.
Procedure
1.
Initiate flowmeter zero by choosing OFFLINE MAINT→ZERO→CAL ZERO, and select CAL/YES?.
Dots traverse the display while flowmeter zero is in progress.
2.
Read the zero result on the display.
The display will report CAL PASS if the zero was successful, or CAL FAIL if it was not. If the zero fails,
restore the factory zero (if available).

A connection from ProLink II to your transmitter allows you to read process data, configure the
transmitter, and perform maintenance and troubleshooting tasks.
Configuration and Use Manual
25
Quick start with ProLink II
Prerequisites
You must have the following version of ProLink II installed on your computer: v2.91 or later.
3.2.1
ProLink II connection types
The 9739 MVD transmitter has several connections options for communicating via ProLink II. You
choose a connection type based on what you need to accomplish with the transmitter and the digital
communications you are using.
The 9739 MVD transmitter supports the following ProLink II connection types:
• Service port connections
• HART/Bell 202 connections
• HART/RS-485 connections
• Modbus/RS-485 7-bit connections (Modbus ASCII)
• Modbus/RS-485 8-bit connections (Modbus RTU)
When selecting a connection type, consider the following:
• Service port connections use standard connection parameters that are already defined in
ProLink II, and therefore you do not have to configure them.
• HART/Bell 202 connections use standard HART connection parameters that are already defined in
ProLink II. The only parameter you must configure is the transmitter address.
• The service port terminals (A and B) and the RS-485 terminals (26 and 27) use the same internal
wiring. If you have wired the transmitter for RS-485 digital communications, you cannot make
a service port connection.
• Service port connections require access to the service port terminals, which are located on the
transmitter display and only accessible after removing the housing cover. Accordingly, service
port connections should be used only for temporary connections, and may require extra safety
precautions.
• Modbus connections, including service port connections, are typically faster than HART
connections.
• When you are using a HART connection, ProLink II will not allow you to open more than one
window at a time. This is done to manage network traffic and optimize speed.
• You cannot make a service port connection while an active connection exists between the
transmitter and Modbus host.

3.2.2
Make a service port connection
Prerequisites
You will need the following:
• An installed, licensed copy of ProLink II
• An available serial or USB port
• One of the following types of signal converters:
− RS-232 to RS-485 signal converter
− USB to RS-485 signal converter
• Adapters as required (e.g. 9-pin to 25-pin)
Important
The SP (Service Port) clips on the display of the 9739 MVD transmitter are directly connected to
the RS-485 terminals 26 and 27 of the transmitter. If you have wired the transmitter for RS-485
digital communications, you must directly connect to the transmitter using the RS-485 terminal block
connections or disconnect the RS-485 terminal connections to use the Service Port connections.
Procedure
1.
Attach the signal converter to your PC’s serial or USB port.
2.
At the transmitter, remove the housing cover to access the transmitter display.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not remove the housing cover while
power is being supplied to the unit. Removing the housing cover while power is
supplied to the unit could cause an explosion. To access transmitter information in a
hazardous environment, use a communication method that does not require removing
the transmitter housing cover.
3.
Connect the leads on your signal converter to the SP (Service Port) clips (A and B) on the face
of the transmitter. See Figure 3-1 .
Tip
Usually, but not always, the black lead is RS-485/A and the red lead is RS-485/B.

3.2.3
Make a HART/Bell 202 connection
Prerequisites
You will need the following:
• An installed, licensed copy of ProLink II
• An available serial or USB port
• One of the following types of signal converters:
− RS-232 to Bell 202 signal converter
− USB to Bell 202 signal converter
• Adapters as required (e.g. 9-pin to 25-pin)
Important
If the HART security switch is set to ON, HART protocol cannot be used to perform any action that
requires writing to the transmitter. For example, you cannot change the configuration, reset totalizers,
or perform calibration using the Field Communicator or ProLink II with a HART connection. When the
HART security switch is set to OFF, no functions are disabled.
You can connect ProLink II to the HART clips on the transmitter, to any point in a local HART loop, or to
any point in a HART multidrop network.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not remove the housing cover while power is
being supplied to the unit. Removing the housing cover while power is supplied to the unit
could cause an explosion. To access transmitter information in a hazardous environment,
use a communication method that does not require removing the transmitter housing cover.
Procedure
1.
To connect to the HART clips:
a.
Remove the transmitter housing cover.
b.
Attach the leads from the signal converter to the HART clips on the face of the transmitter
and add resistance as necessary. See Figure 3-2 .
ProLink II must be connected across a resistance of 250–600 Ω.
Tip
HART connections are polarity-insensitive. It does not matter which lead you attach to which
terminal.

Zero the flowmeter
Prerequisites
To prepare for the zero procedure:
1. Allow the flowmeter to warm up for at least 20 minutes after applying power.
2. Run the process fluid through the sensor until the sensor temperature reaches the normal process
operating temperature.
3. Stop flow through the sensor by shutting a valve downstream from the sensor.
4. Ensure that flow has completely stopped through the sensor, and that the sensor is completely
full of process fluid.
5. Check the flow rate. If the flow rate is close to zero, you should not need to zero the flowmeter.
Configuration and Use Manual
43
Quick start with ProLink II
Important
The meter was zeroed at the factory, and should not require a field zero.
Note
Do not zero the flowmeter if a high-severity alarm is active. Correct the problem, then zero the
flowmeter. You may zero the flowmeter if a low-severity alarm is active.
Procedure
1.
Choose ProLink→Calibration→Zero Calibration.
2.
Modify Zero Time, if required.
Zero Time controls the amount of time the transmitter takes to determine its zero-flow reference point.
• A long zero time may produce a more accurate zero reference, but is more likely to result in
a zero failure. This is due to the increased possibility of noisy flow, which causes incorrect
calibration.
• A short zero time is less likely to result in a zero failure but may produce a less accurate zero
reference.
The default Zero Time is 20 seconds. For most applications, the default Zero Time is appropriate.
3.
Click Perform Auto Zero to initiate the zero procedure.
The Calibration in Progress light will turn red during the zero procedure. At the end of the procedure:
• The Calibration in Progress light will return to green if the zero was successful.
• The Calibration Failure light will turn red if the zero procedure failed.
4.
3.8
In case of failure, you have two options:

Description
Restore Prior Zero
Restore Prior Zero restores the flowmeter to the
zero value it had just prior to starting the zero
procedure. If you close the Flow Calibration
window, you will no longer be able to restore
the prior zero.
Restore Factory Zero
Restore Factory Zero is available only if you
ordered a transmitter and a sensor together.
Test or tune the system using sensor simulation
Sensor simulation allows you to set specific values or value ranges for mass flow, density, and
temperature. The transmitter will report the specified values and take all appropriate actions, e.g., apply
a cutoff, activate an event, or post an alarm. You can use this feature to test the system’s response to a
variety of process conditions, including boundary conditions, problem conditions, or alarm conditions, or
to tune the loop.
44
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Quick start with ProLink II
When you enable sensor simulation, the simulated values are stored in the same memory locations
used for process data from the sensor. Therefore, the simulated values will be used throughout
transmitter functioning. For example, sensor simulation will affect:
• All mass flow, temperature, or density values shown on the display or reported via outputs
or digital communications
• The mass total and mass inventory values
• All volume calculations and data, including reported values, volume totals, and volume inventories
• All mass, temperature, density, or volume values logged to Data Logger
Sensor simulation does not affect any diagnostic values.
Unlike actual mass flow and density values, the simulated values are not temperature-compensated
(adjusted for the effect of temperature on the sensor’s flow tubes).
Important
Do not enable sensor simulation unless your process can tolerate the effects of the simulated process
values.

Enable/disable HART security
You use the HART security switch located on the transmitter display to disable configuration of the
transmitter using HART protocol. When the HART security switch is set to ON, HART protocol cannot be
used to perform any action that requires writing to the transmitter. For example, you cannot change
the configuration, reset totalizers, perform calibration, etc., using the Field Communicator or ProLink II
with a HART/Bell 202 or HART/RS-485 connection. When the HART security switch is set to OFF, no
functions are disabled.
Important
The HART security switch does not affect Modbus communications.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not remove the housing cover while power
is being supplied to the unit. Removing the housing cover while power is supplied to
the unit could cause an explosion. To access the HART security switch in a hazardous
environment, be sure to remove power from the transmitter before removing the housing
cover and setting the HART security switch.
Procedure
1.
Remove power from the transmitter.
2.

Apply power
Prerequisites
Before you apply power to the flowmeter, close and tighten all housing covers.
To prevent ignition of flammable or combustible atmospheres, make sure all covers are
tightly closed. For hazardous area installations, applying power to the unit while housing
covers are removed or loose can cause an explosion.
Procedure
Turn on the electrical power at the power supply.
The flowmeter will automatically perform diagnostic routines. For transmitters with a display, the status
LED will turn green and begin to flash when the startup diagnostics are complete. If the status LED
exhibits different behavior, an alarm condition is present.
Postrequisites
Allow the electronics to warm up for approximately 10 minutes before relying on process measurements.
Although the sensor is ready to receive process fluid shortly after power-up, the electronics can take up
to 10 minutes to warm up completely.
4.2
Connect with the Field Communicator
Prerequisites
The following HART device description (DD) must be installed on the Field Communicator: DD v2.
A connection from the Field Communicator to your transmitter allows you to read process data, configure
the transmitter, and perform maintenance and troubleshooting tasks.
Configuration and Use Manual
49
Quick start with the Field Communicator
You can connect the Field Communicator to the HART clips on the transmitter, to any point in a local
HART loop, or to any point in a HART multidrop network.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not remove the housing cover while power is
being supplied to the unit. Removing the housing cover while power is supplied to the unit
could cause an explosion. To access transmitter information in a hazardous environment,
use a communication method that does not require removing the transmitter housing cover.
Important
If the HART security switch is set to ON, HART protocol cannot be used to perform any action that
requires writing to the transmitter. For example, you cannot change the configuration, reset totalizers,
or perform calibration using the Field Communicator or ProLink II with a HART connection. When the
HART security switch is set to OFF, no functions are disabled.
Procedure
1.
To connect to the HART clips:
a.
Remove the transmitter housing cover.
b.
Attach the leads from the Field Communicator to the HART clips on the face of the transmitter
and add resistance as necessary.
The Field Communicator must be connected across a resistance of 250–600 Ω.

Density calibration parameters (D1, D2, K1, K2, FD, DT, TC)
If your sensor tag does not show a D1 or D2 value:
• For D1, enter the Dens A or D1 value from the calibration certificate. This value is the line-condition
density of the low-density calibration fluid. Micro Motion uses air. If you cannot find a Dens A or
D1 value, enter 0.001 g/cm3.
• For D2, enter the Dens B or D2 value from the calibration certificate. This value is the line-condition
density of the high-density calibration fluid. Micro Motion uses water. If you cannot find a Dens B
or D2 value, enter 0.998 g/cm3.
If your sensor tag does not show a K1 or K2 value:
• For K1, enter the first 5 digits of the density calibration factor. In the sample tag in Figure 5-1, this
value is shown as 12500.
• For K2, enter the second 5 digits of the density calibration factor. In the sample tag in Figure 5-1,
this value is shown as 14286.
If your sensor does not show an FD value, contact [email protected]
If your sensor tag does not show a DT or TC value, enter the last 3 digits of the density calibration
factor. In the sample tag in Figure 5-1, this value is shown as 4.44.
Flow calibration parameters (FCF, FT)
Two separate values are used to describe flow calibration: a 6-character FCF value and a 4-character
FT value. Both values contain decimal points. During characterization, these are entered as a single
10-character string that includes two decimal points. This parameter is called either Flowcal or FCF.
If your sensor tag shows the FCF and the FT values separately, concatenate the two values to form
the single parameter value.
t Example: Concatenating FCF and FT
FCF = x.xxxx
FT = y.yy
Flow calibration parameter: x.xxxxy.yy

A special measurement unit allows you to report process data, totalizer data, and inventory data in a
unit that is not hard-coded in the transmitter. A special measurement unit is calculated from an existing
measurement unit using a conversion factor.
Restriction
Although you cannot define a special measurement unit using the display, you can use the display to
select an existing special measurement unit and to view process data.
Procedure

Configure Flow Damping
Display
Not available
ProLink II
ProLink→Configuration→Flow→Flow Damp
Field Communicator
Configure→Manual Setup→Measurements→Flow→Flow Damping
Damping is used to smooth out small, rapid fluctuations in process measurement. The Damping Value
specifies the time period (in seconds) over which the transmitter will spread changes in the reported
process variable. At the end of the interval, the reported process variable will reflect 63% of the change
in the actual measured value.
Tips
• A high damping value makes the process variable appear smoother because the reported value
must change slowly.
• A low damping value makes the process variable appear more erratic because the reported
value changes more quickly.
Procedure
Set Flow Damping to the desired value.
The default value is 0.8 seconds. The range is 0 to 10.24 seconds. When you enter a value for Flow
Damping, the transmitter automatically rounds it down to the nearest valid value. The valid values for Flow
Damping are: 0, 0.04, 0.08, 0.16, ... 10.24.
Tips
For gas applications, Micro Motion recommends setting Flow Damping to 2.56 or higher.
Configuration and Use Manual
67
Configure process measurement
Effect of Flow Damping on volume measurement
Flow Damping effects volume measurement for both liquid volume and gas standard volume. Volume data
is calculated from the damped mass flow data rather than the measured flow value.
Interaction between Flow Damping and Added Damping
Flow Damping controls the rate of change in flow process variables. Added Damping controls the rate of
change reported via the mA output. If mA Output Process Variable is set to Mass Flow Rate, and both Flow
Damping and Added Damping are set to non-zero values, flow damping is applied first, and the added
damping calculation is applied to the result of the first calculation.

Mass Flow Cutoff specifies the lowest mass flow rate that will reported as measured. All mass flow rates
below this cutoff will be reported as 0.
Procedure
Set Mass Flow Cutoff to the desired value.
The default value for Mass Flow Cutoff is 0.0 g/s. The recommended setting is 0.05% of the sensor's
rated maximum flow rate.
Effect of Mass Flow Cutoff on volume measurement
Mass Flow Cutoff does not affect volume measurement. Volume data is calculated from the actual mass
data rather than the reported value.
Interaction between Mass Flow Cutoff and AO Cutoff
Mass Flow Cutoff affects all reported values and values used in other transmitter behavior (e.g., events
defined on mass flow).
AO Cutoff affects only mass flow values reported via the mA output.
t Example: Cutoff interaction
Configuration:
• mA Output Process Variable for the primary mA output: Mass Flow Rate
• Frequency Output Process Variable: Mass Flow Rate
• AO Cutoff for the primary mA output: 10 grams/second
• Mass Flow Cutoff: 15 grams/second
Result: If the mass flow rate drops below 15 grams/second, mass flow will be reported as 0, and 0
will be used in all internal processing.

The slug flow parameters control how the transmitter detects and reports two-phase flow.
Procedure
1.
Set Slug Low Limit to the lowest density value that is considered normal in your process.
Values below this will cause the transmitter to perform the configured slug flow action. Typically,
this value is the lowest density value in the normal range of your process.
Tip
Gas entrainment can cause your process density to drop temporarily. To reduce the occurrence
of slug flow alarms that are not significant to your process, set Slug Low Limit slightly below your
expected lowest process density.
You must enter Slug Low Limit in g/cm3, even if another unit has been configured for density
measurement.
The default value for Slug Low Limit is 0.0 g/cm3. The range is 0.0 g/cm3 to 10.0 g/cm3.
Configuration and Use Manual
85
Configure process measurement
2.
Set Slug High Limit to the highest density value that is considered normal in your process.
Tip
To reduce the occurrence of slug flow alarms that are not significant to your process, set Slug High
Limit slightly above your expected highest process density.
Values above this will cause the transmitter to perform the configured slug flow action. Typically,
this value is the highest density value in the normal range of your process.
You must enter Slug High Limit in g/cm3, even if another unit has been configured for density
measurement.
The default value for Slug High Limit is 5.0 g/cm3. The range is 0.0 g/cm3 to 10.0 g/cm3.
3.
Set Slug Duration to the number of seconds that the transmitter will wait for a slug flow condition to
clear before performing the configured slug flow action.
The default value for Slug Duration is 0.0 seconds. The range is 0.0 seconds to 60.0 seconds.
Slug flow detection and reporting
Slug flow is typically used as an indicator of two-phase flow (gas in a liquid process or liquid in a gas
process). Two-phase flow can cause a variety of process control issues. By configuring the slug flow
parameters appropriately for your application, you can detect process conditions that require correction.
Tip
To decrease the occurrence of slug flow alarms, lower Slug Low Limit or raise Slug High Limit.
A condition of slug flow occurs whenever the measured density goes below Slug Low Limit or above
Slug High Limit. If this occurs:
• A slug flow alarm is posted to the active alarm log.
• All outputs that are configured to represent flow rate hold their last “pre-slug flow” value for the
configured Slug Duration.
If the slug flow condition clears before Slug Duration expires:
• Outputs that represent flow rate revert to reporting actual flow.
• The slug flow alarm is deactivated, but remains in the active alarm log until it is acknowledged.
If the slug flow condition does not clear before Slug Duration expires, outputs that represent flow rate
report a flow rate of 0.
If Slug Duration is set to 0.0 seconds, outputs that represent flow rate will report a flow rate of 0 as soon as
slug flow is detected.

Configure Density Damping
Display

ProLink II
ProLink→Configuration→Density→Density Damping
Field Communicator
Configure→Manual Setup→Measurements→Density→Density Damping
Damping is used to smooth out small, rapid fluctuations in process measurement. The Damping Value
specifies the time period (in seconds) over which the transmitter will spread changes in the reported
process variable. At the end of the interval, the reported process variable will reflect 63% of the change
in the actual measured value.
Tips
• A high damping value makes the process variable appear smoother because the reported value
must change slowly.
• A low damping value makes the process variable appear more erratic because the reported
value changes more quickly.
Procedure
Set Density Damping to the desired value.
The default value is 1.6 seconds. The range is 0 to 10.24 seconds. When you enter a value for Flow
Damping, the transmitter automatically rounds it down to the nearest valid value. The valid values for Flow
Damping are: 0, 0.04, 0.08, 0.16, ... 10.24.
Effect of Density Damping on volume measurement
Density Damping affects liquid volume measurement. Density Damping does not affect gas standard volume
measurement.
Interaction between Density Damping and Added Damping
Density Damping controls the rate of change in the density process variable. Added Damping controls the
rate of change reported via the mA output. If mA Output Process Variable is set to Density, and both Density
Damping and Added Damping are set to non-zero values, density damping is applied first, and the added
damping calculation is applied to the result of the first calculation.

Density Cutoff affects liquid volume measurement. If the density value goes below Density Cutoff, the volume
flow rate goes to 0. Density Cutoff does not affect gas standard volume measurement. Gas standard

Decide how pressure data will be provided to the transmitter, and perform the required setup.
• If you will poll an external pressure device, set up polling for pressure.
• If you will use a static pressure value, set Pressure Units to the units you are using, enter
External Pressure, and ensure that polling for pressure is disabled.
• If you will use digital communications or a direct analog current to write pressure data to the
transmitter, set Pressure Units to the units to be used and ensure that polling for pressure
is disabled. Then ensure that the appropriate value is written to transmitter memory at
appropriate intervals.
• If you will use an external measurement device, configure the mA input to External Pressure.

mA Output Process Variable controls the variable that is reported over the mA output.
Prerequisites
If you plan to configure an output to report volume flow, ensure that you have set Volume Flow Type as
desired: Liquid or Gas Standard Volume.
If you plan to configure an output to report a concentration measurement process variable, ensure that
the concentration measurement application is configured so that the desired variable is available.
If you are using the HART variables, be aware that changing the configuration of mA Output Process
Variable will change the configuration of the HART Primary Variable (PV) and/or the HART Secondary
Variable (SV).
Procedure
Set mA Output Process Variable as desired.
Default settings are as follows:
• Primary mA output: Mass Flow Rate
• Secondary mA output: Density
Options for mA Output Process Variable
The transmitter provides a basic set of options for mA Output Process Variable, plus several
application-specific options. Different communications tools use different labels for the options.

Configure→Manual Setup→Inputs/Outputs→mA Output X→mA Output Settings→PV/SV URV
The Lower Range Value (LRV) and Upper Range Value (URV) are used to scale the mA output, i.e., to define
the relationship between mA Output Process Variable and the mA output level. The mA output uses a
range of 4–20 mA or 0–20 mA to represent mA Output Process Variable. Between LRV and URV, the mA
output is linear with the process variable. If the process variable drops below LRV or rises above URV,
the transmitter posts an output saturation alarm.
Note
If you change LRV and URV from factory default values, and you later change mA Output Process Variable,
LRV and URV will not be reset to the default values. For example, if you configure mA Output Process Variable
as mass flow and change the LRV and URV for mass flow, then you configure mA Output Process Variable as
density, and finally you change mA Output Process Variable back to mass flow, LRV and URV for mass flow
are reset to the configured values.
Procedure
1.
Set LRV as desired.
LRV is the value of mA Output Process Variable represented by an output of 0 or 4 mA. The default
value depends on the setting of mA Output Process Variable.
Enter LRV in the measurement units that are configured for mA Output Process Variable.
2.
Set URV as desired.
URV is the value of mA Output Process Variable represented by an output of 20 mA. The default value
depends on the setting of mA Output Process Variable.
Enter URV in the measurement units that are configured for mA Output Process Variable.
Note
You can set URV below LRV. For example, you can set URV to 50 and LRV to 100.
Default values for Lower Range Value (LRV) and Upper Range Value (URV)
Each option for mA Output Process Variable has its own LRV and URV. If you change the configuration of mA
Output Process Variable, the corresponding LRV and URV are loaded and used.
Default values for LRV and URV are shown in Table 7-2 .

AO Cutoff (Analog Output Cutoff) specifies the lowest mass flow rate, volume flow rate, or Gas Standard
Volume flow rate that will be reported through the mA output. Any flow rates below the AO Cutoff will
be reported as 0.
Restriction
AO Cutoff is applied only if mA Output Process Variable is set to Mass Flow Rate, Volume Flow Rate, or Gas
Standard Volume Flow Rate. If mA Output Process Variable is set to a different process variable, AO Cutoff is not
configurable, and the transmitter does not implement the AO cutoff function.
Procedure
Set AO Cutoff as desired.
The default values for AO Cutoff are as follows:
• Primary mA output: 0.0 g/s
• Secondary mA output: Not-A-Number
Tip
For most applications, the default value of AO Cutoff should be used. Contact Micro Motion
Customer Service before changing AO Cutoff.
Cutoff interaction
When mA Output Process Variable is set to a flow variable (mass flow, volume flow, or gas standard volume
flow), AO Cutoff interacts with Mass Flow Cutoff, Volume Flow Cutoff, or Gas Standard Volume Flow Cutoff. The
transmitter puts the cutoff into effect at the highest flow rate at which a cutoff is applicable.
Configuration and Use Manual

Integrate the meter with the control system
t Example: Cutoff interaction
Configuration:
• mA Output Process Variable = Mass Flow Rate
• Frequency Output Process Variable = Mass Flow Rate
• AO Cutoff = 10 g/s
• Mass Flow Cutoff = 15 g/s
Result: If the mass flow rate drops below 15 g/s, all outputs representing mass flow will report zero flow.
t Example: Cutoff interaction
Configuration:
• mA Output Process Variable = Mass Flow Rate
• Frequency Output Process Variable = Mass Flow Rate
• AO Cutoff = 15 g/s
• Mass Flow Cutoff = 10 g/s
Result:
• If the mass flow rate drops below 15 g/s but not below 10 g/s:
− The mA output will report zero flow.
− The frequency output will report the actual flow rate.
• If the mass flow rate drops below 10 g/s, both outputs will report zero flow.

Added Damping controls the amount of damping that will be applied to the mA output. It affects the
reporting of mA Output Process Variable through the mA output only. It does not affect the reporting of that
process variable via any other method (e.g., the frequency output or digital communications), or the
value of the process variable used in calculations.
Note
Added Damping is not applied if the mA output is fixed (for example, during loop testing) or if the mA output
is reporting a fault. Added Damping is applied while sensor simulation is active.
Procedure
Set Added Damping to the desired value.
The default value is 0.0 seconds.
122
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Integrate the meter with the control system
When you specify a value for Added Damping, the transmitter automatically rounds the value down to the
nearest valid value. Valid values are shown in Table 7-3 .

0.0, 0.1, 0.3, 0.75, 1.6, 3.3, 6.5, 13.5, 27.5, 55.0, 110, 220, 440
Interaction of damping parameters
When mA Output Process Variable is set to a flow variable, density, or temperature, Added Damping interacts
with Flow Damping, Density Damping, or Temperature Damping. If multiple damping parameters are applicable,
the effect of damping the process variable is calculated first, and the added damping calculation is
applied to the result of that calculation.
t Example: Damping interaction
Configuration:
• Flow Damping = 1 second
• mA Output Process Variable = Mass Flow Rate
• Added Damping = 2 seconds
Result: A change in the mass flow rate will be reflected in the mA output over a time period that is
greater than 3 seconds. The exact time period is calculated by the transmitter according to internal
algorithms which are not configurable.

Frequency=Flow
The Frequency=Flow option is used to customize the frequency output for your application when you do
not know appropriate values for Units/Pulse or Pulses/Unit.
If you specify Frequency=Flow, you must provide values for Rate Factor and Frequency Factor:
Rate Factor
The maximum flow rate that you want the frequency output to report. Above
this rate, the transmitter will report A110: Frequency Output Saturated.
Frequency Factor
A value calculated as follows:
where:
T
Factor to convert selected time base to seconds
N
Number of pulses per flow unit, as configured in
the receiving device
The resulting Frequency Factor must be within the range of the frequency output (0 to 10,000 Hz):
• If Frequency Factor is less than 1 Hz, reconfigure the receiving device for a higher pulses/unit setting.
• If Frequency Factor is greater than 10,000 Hz, reconfigure the receiving device for a lower pulses/unit
setting.
Tip
If Frequency Output Scale Method is set to Frequency=Flow, and Frequency Output Maximum Pulse Width is set to a
non-zero value, Micro Motion recommends setting Frequency Factor to a value less than 200 Hz.
t Example: Configure Frequency=Flow
You want the frequency output to report all flow rates up to 2000 kg/min.
The frequency receiving device is configured for 10 pulses/kg.

Flow Switch is used to indicate that the flow rate (measured by the configured flow variable) has dropped
below the configured setpoint. The flow switch is implemented with a user-configurable hysteresis.
Procedure
1.
Set Discrete Output Source to Flow Switch, if you have not already done so.
2.
Set Flow Switch Variable to the flow variable that will be used to control the flow switch.
3.
Set Flow Switch Setpoint to the flow rate below which you want the flow switch to turn on.
4.
Set Hysteresis to the percentage of variation above and below the setpoint that will operate as a
deadband.
Hysteresis defines a range around the setpoint within which the flow switch will not change. The
default is 5%. The valid range is 0.1% to 10%.
(5) If you assign flow switch to the discrete output, you must also configure Flow Switch Variable, Flow Switch Setpoint, and
Hysteresis.
(6) If your transmitter is configured with two discrete outputs, you can assign flow switch to both of them. However,
they will share the settings for Flow Switch Variable, Flow Switch Setpoint, and Hysteresis.

105 g/sec. At this point it turns OFF and will remain OFF until the flow rate drops below 95 g/sec.

Procedure
1.
Set HART Address to a value between 0 and 15.
HART Address must be unique on the network. The default address (0) is typically used unless
you are in a multidrop environment.
Tip
Devices using HART protocol to communicate with the transmitter may use either HART Address or
HART Tag (Software Tag) to identify the transmitter. You may configure either or both, as required by
your other HART devices.
2.

The transmitter can poll an external temperature device for current temperature data. The external
temperature value is used only by the petroleum measurement application or the concentration
measurement application. If you do not have one of these applications, do not set up polling for
temperature.
Tip
To obtain value from using an external temperature value, the external measurement device must be
reliable and must provide more accurate data than is available from the sensor.
Prerequisites
Polling requires HART protocol over the Bell 202 physical layer. Ensure that the primary mA output
on your transmitter has been wired for HART protocol, and that the external measurement device is
accessible over the HART network.
Procedure
1.
Select Polled Variable 1 or Polled Variable 2.
2.
Set Polling Control.
Polling Control determines how the transmitter will access the external measurement device.
Option
Description
Primary
The transmitter is the only device that will
access the external measurement device as
a primary master.
Secondary
Another device on the network will access the
external measurement device as a primary
master.
Tip
If you set up polling for both temperature and pressure, use the same Polling Control option for both.
If you do not, Primary will be used for both devices.

Micro Motion suggests that you make a record of specific process variable measurements, including
the acceptable range of measurements, under normal operating conditions. Making a record of the
variable measurements will help you recognize when the process variables are unusually high or low,
and may help you better diagnose and troubleshoot application issues.
Procedure
Record the following process variables, under normal operating conditions:

Transmitter operation
Process variables provide information about the state of the process fluid, such as flow rate, density,
and temperature, as well as running totals. Process variables can also include data about flowmeter
operation, such as drive gain and pickoff voltage. This information can be used to understand and
troubleshoot your process.
Procedure
View the desired process variable(s).
If you are using the transmitter display, by default the display shows the mass flow rate, mass total,
volume flow rate, volume total, temperature, density, and drive gain. If desired, you can configure
the display to show other process variables, such as totalizers and inventories. The display reports
the abbreviated name of the process variable (for example, DENS for density), the current value
of that process variable, and the associated unit of measure (for example, G/CM3). If Auto Scroll is
enabled, the display cycles through the configured display variables, showing each display variable for
a user-specified number of seconds.

View transmitter status using the status LED
The status LED is located on the user interface module of the transmitter.
Procedure
View the status LED on the user interface module of the transmitter.
• For transmitters with a display, you can view the status LED with the transmitter housing cover in
place.
• For transmitters without a display, the transmitter housing cover must be removed to view the status
LED.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not remove the housing cover while power is
supplied to the unit. Removing the housing cover while power is supplied to the unit
could cause an explosion. To view transmitter status in a hazardous environment, use a
communication method that does not require removing the transmitter housing cover.

View and acknowledge status alarms
To view and acknowledge status alarms, you can use the transmitter display, ProLink II, or the
Field Communicator.
The transmitter maintains two status flags for a status alarm:
• The first status flag indicates Active or Inactive.
• The second status flag indicates Acknowledged or Unacknowledged.
An alarm is Active when the transmitter detects that the alarm condition exists. An alarm is Inactive when
the transmitter detects that the alarm condition has cleared. When an alarm is posted, it is set to
Unacknowledged. Operator action is required to change the status from Unacknowledged to Acknowledged,
whether or not the alarm is still active.

Transmitter operation
Procedure
• To view the current status of all possible alarms, select ProLink→Status. To view status indicators in
an alarm category, click on one of three tabs in the Status window: Critical, Informational, or Operational.
The Status window displays the current status of all possible alarms, including Ignore alarms on the
three panels. A tab is red if one or more status indicators in that category is “on.”
• A green LED indicates an Inactive alarm.
• A red status indicator indicates an Active alarm.
• To view and acknowledge active and inactive Fault and Information alarms, select ProLink→Alarm Log.
To acknowledge an alarm, check the ACK check box.
The transmitter automatically filters out Ignore alarms. Entries in the alarm log are divided into two
categories: High priority and Low priority. These priorities correspond to the default severity levels
for the type of alarm. Within each category:
• A red LED indicates an Active alarm.
• A green LED indicates an Inactive alarm that has not been acknowledged.
8.4.3
View alarms using the Field Communicator
Procedure
• Press Service Tools→Alerts to view the active Fault and Informational alarms. The transmitter
automatically filters out Ignore alarms.
• Press Service Tools→Alerts→Refresh Alerts to refresh the view of the active alarms.
• Press Service Tools→Alerts, and select the individual alarm to view and acknowledge the alarm.
8.4.4
Interaction of transmitter fault actions and Alarm Severity level
When an alarm condition occurs, the transmitter responds by reporting a status alarm. Each status
alarm has an alarm. Alarms are classified into three severity levels: Fault, Information, and Ignore. Severity
level controls how the transmitter responds to the alarm condition. You can change the Alarm Severity
for some alarms.
The transmitter maintains two status flags for each alarm:
• The first status flag indicates Active or Inactive.
• The second status flag indicates Acknowledged or Unacknowledged.
When the transmitter detects an alarm condition, the following occurs:
• An alarm is posted for the corresponding alarm:
− First status flag is set to Active.
− Second status flag is set to Unacknowledged.
• The transmitter checks the severity level for the specific alarm:
− If Severity is Fault, outputs go to their configured Fault Action (after the configured fault timeout
has expired).
− If the Severity is Information or Ignore, outputs are not affected. They continue to report process
data.
160
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters

When the transmitter detects that the alarm condition has cleared:
• First status flag is set to Inactive.
• Second status flag is unchanged: Unacknowledged.
• (For Fault alarms only) Outputs return to reporting process data.
Operator action is required to change the second status flag; however, alarm acknowledgement is not
necessary.

Measurement support
Topics covered in this chapter:
♦ Options for measurement support
♦ Validate the meter
♦ Perform a (standard) D1 and D2 density calibration
♦ Perform a D3 and D4 density calibration (T-Series sensors only)
♦ Perform temperature calibration
9.1
Options for measurement support
Micro Motion provides several measurement support procedures to help you evaluate and maintain
your flowmeter's accuracy.
The following methods are available:
• Meter validation compares flowmeter measurements reported by the transmitter to an external
measurement standard. Meter validation requires one data point.
• Calibration establishes the relationship between a process variable and the signal produced at
the sensor. You can calibrate the flowmeter for zero, density, and temperature. Density and
temperature calibration require two data points (low and high) and an external measurement for
each.
Tip
Micro Motion recommends using meter validation and meter factors, rather than calibration, to prove the
meter against a regulatory standard or to correct measurement error.
9.2
Validate the meter
Meter validation compares flowmeter measurements reported by the transmitter to an external
measurement standard. If the transmitter mass flow, volume flow, or density measurement is significantly
different from the external measurement standard, you may want to adjust the corresponding meter
factor. The flowmeter’s actual measurement is multiplied by the meter factor, and the resulting value is
reported and used in further processing.
Configuration and Use Manual
165
Measurement support
Prerequisites
Identify the meter factor(s) that you will calculate and set. You may set any combination of the three
meter factors: mass flow, volume flow, and density. Note that all three meter factors are independent:
• The meter factor for mass flow affects only the value reported for mass flow.
• The meter factor for density affects only the value reported for density.
• The meter factor for volume flow affects only the value reported for volume flow or gas standard
volume flow
Important
To adjust volume flow, you must set the meter factor for volume flow. Setting a meter factor for mass flow
and a meter factor for density will not produce the desired result. The volume flow calculations are based
on original mass flow and density values, before the corresponding meter factors have been applied.
If you plan to calculate the meter factor for volume flow, be aware that validating volume in the field
may be expensive, and the procedure may be hazardous for some process fluids. Therefore, because
volume is inversely proportional to density, an alternative to direct measurement is to calculate the meter
factor for volume flow from the meter factor for density. See Section 9.2.1 for instructions on this method.
Obtain a reference device (external measurement device) for the appropriate process variable.
Important
For good results, the reference device must be highly accurate.
Procedure
1.
166
Determine the meter factor as follows:
a.
Use the flowmeter to take a sample measurement.
b.
Measure the same sample using the reference device.
c.
Calculate the meter factor using the following formula:
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Measurement support
2.
Ensure that the calculated meter factor is between 0.8 and 1.2, inclusive. If the meter factor is
outside these limits, contact Micro Motion Customer Service.
3.
Configure the meter factor in the transmitter.
• To set the meter factor using the display: OFF-LINE MAINT→CONFG→UNITS→MTR F
• To set the meter factor using ProLink II: ProLink→Configuration→Flow
• To set the meter factor using the Field Communicator:
− Configure→Manual Setup→Measurements→Flow
− Configure→Manual Setup→Measurements→Density
t Example: Calculating the meter factor for mass flow
The flowmeter is installed and validated for the first time. The mass flow measurement from the
transmitter is 250.27 lb; the mass flow measurement from the reference device is 250 lb. A mass flow
meter factor is determined as follows:
The first meter factor for mass flow is 0.9989.
One year later, the flowmeter is validated again. The flowmeter mass measurement is 250.07 lb; the
reference device measurement is 250.25 lb. A new mass flow meter factor is determined as follows:
The new meter factor for mass flow is 0.9996.
9.2.1
Alternate method for calculating the meter factor for volume
flow
The alternate method for calculating the meter factor for volume flow is used to avoid the difficulties that
may be associated with the standard method.
This alternate method is based on the fact that volume is inversely proportional to density. It provides
partial correction of the volume flow measurement by adjusting for the portion of the total offset that is
caused by the density measurement offset. Use this method only when a volume flow reference is not
available, but a density reference is available.
Procedure
1.
Calculate the meter factor for density, using the standard method (see Section 9.2).
2.

Note
The following equation is mathematically equivalent to the first equation. You may use whichever
version you prefer.

outside these limits, contact Micro Motion Customer Service.
4.

Perform a (standard) D1 and D2 density calibration
Density calibration establishes the relationship between the density of the calibration fluids and the
signal produced at the sensor. Density calibration includes the calibration of the D1 (low-density) and
D2 (high-density) calibration points.
You can calibrate for density using ProLink II or the Field Communicator.
Important
Micro Motion flowmeters are calibrated at the factory, and normally do not need to be calibrated in
the field. Calibrate the flowmeter only if you must do so to meet regulatory requirements. Contact
Micro Motion before calibrating the flowmeter.
Tip
Micro Motion recommends using meter validation and meter factors, rather than calibration, to prove the
meter against a regulatory standard or to correct measurement error.

Perform a D1 and D2 density calibration using ProLink II
Prerequisites
• During density calibration, the sensor must be completely filled with the calibration fluid, and
flow through the sensor must be at the lowest rate allowed by your application. This is usually
accomplished by closing the shutoff valve downstream from the sensor, then filling the sensor
with the appropriate fluid.
• D1 and D2 density calibration require a D1 (low-density) fluid and a D2 (high-density) fluid. You
may use air and water.
• The calibrations must be performed without interruption, in the order shown. Make sure that you
are prepared to complete the process without interruption.
• Before performing the calibration, record your current calibration parameters. You can do this by
saving the current configuration to a file on the PC. If the calibration fails, restore the known values.
Restriction
For T-Series sensors, the D1 calibration must be performed on air and the D2 calibration must be
performed on water.

Use sensor simulation for troubleshooting
You can use sensor simulation to help distinguish between legitimate process noise and externally
caused variation. For example, consider a receiving device that reports an unexpectedly erratic flow
value. If sensor simulation is enabled and the observed flow rate does not match the simulated value,
the source of the problem is likely to be somewhere between the transmitter and the receiving device.
Important
When sensor simulation is active, the simulated value is used in all transmitter outputs and calculations,
including totals and inventories, volume flow calculations, and concentration calculations. Do not enable
simulation mode unless your application can tolerate these effects, and be sure to disable simulation
mode when you have finished testing.
10.9
Check power supply wiring
Prerequisites
To verify wiring, you will need a copy of the installation manual for your transmitter. To check power
supply wiring for the 9739 MVD transmitter, you must remove the electronics module from the
transmitter housing base.
Procedure
1.
Before inspecting the power supply wiring, disconnect the power source.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, wait five minutes after disconnecting the
power.
2.
Verify that the correct external fuse is used. An incorrect fuse can limit current to the transmitter
and keep it from initializing.
3.
Ensure that the power supply wires are connected to the correct terminals.
4.
Verify that the power supply wires are making good contact, and are not clamped to the wire
insulation.
5.
Inspect the voltage label on the inside of the field-wiring compartment.
The voltage supplied to the transmitter should match the voltage specified on the label.
6.

Reapply power to the transmitter.
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Troubleshooting
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, do not reapply power to the transmitter with
the housing cover removed. Reapplying power to the transmitter while the housing
cover is removed could cause an explosion.
7.
Use a voltmeter to test the voltage at the transmitter’s power supply terminals.
The voltage should be within specified limits. For DC power, you may need to size the cable.
10.10
Check sensor-to-transmitter wiring
Prerequisites
You will need a copy of the installation manual for your transmitter.
Procedure
1.
Before opening the wiring compartments, disconnect the power source.
If the transmitter is in a hazardous area, wait five minutes after disconnecting the
power.
2.
Verify that the transmitter is connected to the sensor according to the information provided in
your transmitter installation manual.
3.
Verify that the wires are making good contact with the terminals.
4.
Check the continuity of all wires from the transmitter to the sensor.
10.11
Check grounding
Prerequisites
You will need a copy of your sensor installation manual and your transmitter installation manual.
Procedure
Refer to the sensor and transmitter installation manuals for grounding requirements and instructions.
10.12
Check for radio frequency interference
Perform the actions described here if you suspect your frequency or discrete output is being affected by
radio frequency interference (RFI). Possible sources of RFI include a source of radio emissions, or a
large transformer, pump, or motor that can generate a strong electromagnetic field.
Procedure
• Eliminate the RFI source.
• Move the transmitter.
• Use shielded cable for the frequency output.
• Terminate the shielding at the output device. If this is impossible, terminate the shielding at
the cable gland or conduit fitting.
• Do not terminate the shielding inside the wiring compartment.
• 360-degree termination of shielding is unnecessary.
Configuration and Use Manual

Check HART communication loop
Prerequisites
You will need the following:
• A copy of your transmitter installation manual
• A Field Communicator
• Optional: the HART Application Guide, available at www.hartcomm.org
Procedure
1.
Verify that the loop wires are connected as shown in the wiring diagrams in the transmitter
installation manual.
If your HART network is more complex than the wiring diagrams in the transmitter installation
manual, contact either Micro Motion or the HART Communication Foundation.
2.
Disconnect the primary mA output wiring from the transmitter.
3.
Install a 250 Ω resistor across the transmitter’s primary mA output terminals.
4.
Check the voltage drop across the resistor (4–20 mA = 1–5 VDC).
If voltage drop is less than 1 VDC, add resistance to achieve a voltage drop of greater than 1 VDC.
5.
Connect a Field Communicator directly across the resistor and attempt to communicate (poll).
If communication with the transmitter cannot be established, the transmitter may need service.
Contact Micro Motion.
10.14
Check HART Address and Loop Current Mode
The default HART Address is 0. This address is appropriate unless the transmitter is in a multidrop
environment. If the HART Address is configured to a value other than 0, some configuration tools will
automatically change Loop Current Mode as well.
If Loop Current Mode is Disabled, the primary mA output will not report process variable data or indicate
fault conditions.

Procedure
1.
Check to see if burst mode is enabled or disabled.
2.
If burst mode is enabled, disable it.
10.16
Check mA output trim
There are four mA output trim values: a 4 mA and a 20 mA trim value for each mA output.9739
MVD transmitters have a 4 and 20 mA trim value for each mA output. Verify the configuration of all
the trim values.
Procedure
Verify the trim values for the mA output.
Note
Micro Motion does not recommend attempting to trim an mA output if the reading is off by more than
±200 microamps. If this is the case, contact Micro Motion Customer Service.
10.17
Check Lower Range Value and Upper Range Value
Procedure
1.
Verify current process conditions.
2.
Check the configuration of the LRV and URV.
10.18
Check mA Output Fault Action
Procedure
1.
Check the status alarms for fault conditions.
If no fault conditions are present, the source of the problem is something other than the mA
fault configuration.
2.
Check the configuration of mA Output Fault Action.
10.19
Check Frequency Output Mode
Frequency Output Mode is used only to defined the relationship between two frequency outputs. If your
transmitter is not configured for two frequency outputs, Frequency Output Mode is not causing your output
problem.

Procedure
Verify the configuration of Frequency Output Mode.
10.20
Check Frequency Output Maximum Pulse Width and Frequency
Output Scaling Method
Procedure
1.
Verify the configuration of Frequency Output Scaling Method.
The scaling method should be set as required by your frequency receiving device. If you change
the scaling method, you may need to configure additional frequency output parameters.
2.
Verify the configuration of Frequency Output Maximum Pulse Width.
For most applications, the default frequency pulse width is appropriate. This corresponds to a
50% duty cycle.
10.21
Check Frequency Output Fault Action
Procedure
1.
Check the status alarms for fault conditions.
If no fault conditions are present, the source of the problem is something other than the frequency
output fault configuration.
2.
Check the configuration of Frequency Output Fault Action.
10.22
Check Flow Direction
The interaction of the flow direction parameter, flow values reported by the transmitter, and flow totals
reported by the transmitter is complex. For the simplest operation, actual process flow should match the
flow arrow printed on the side of the sensor case.
Procedure
1.
Verify the actual direction of process flow through the sensor.
2.
Verify the configuration of Flow Direction.
10.23
Check cutoffs
There are separate cutoff parameters for mass flow, volume flow (including gas standard volume flow),
and density. Furthermore, there is an independent cutoff for each mA output. The interaction between
cutoffs sometimes produce unexpected results.
Procedure
Verify the configuration of the cutoffs.
194
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Troubleshooting
Tip
For typical applications, Micro Motion recommends setting Flow Cutoff to the zero stability of your sensor,
multiplied by 10.
10.24
Check for slug flow
The default slug flow limits are appropriate for most applications. Raising the low slug flow limit or
lowering the high slug flow limit will increase the possibility of the transmitter reporting slug flow
conditions.
If slug limits have been configured, and slug flow occurs, a slug flow alarm will be generated. Outputs
that are configured for flow rate hold their last known value until the slug flow clears, or up to the
configured slug flow duration, whichever comes first.
Procedure
1.
Check whether slug flow alarms have been generated.
If the transmitter is not generating slug flow alarms, then slug flow is not the source of your problem.
2.
Check the process for cavitation, flashing, or leaks.
3.
Check the configured slug flow limits and duration.
A slug flow duration of 0.0 seconds will cause flow outputs to report zero flow as soon as slug
flow is detected. If you are experiencing slug flow alarms and no flow output, this maybe resolved
by increasing the slug flow duration.
Tip
The default high slug flow limit (5.0 g/cm3) is appropriate for most applications.
4.
Monitor the density output under normal process conditions.
It may be necessary to adjust the slug flow limits and duration to account for the normal density
variation in your process.

Troubleshooting
There should be no open circuits, that is, no infinite resistance readings. The left pickoff and right
pickoff readings should be the same or very close (±5 Ω). If there are any unusual readings, repeat
the coil resistance tests at the sensor junction box to eliminate the possibility of faulty cable. The
readings for each coil pair should match at both ends.
5.
Test the terminals in the sensor junction box for shorts to case.
a.
Leave the terminal blocks disconnected.
b.
Remove the lid of the junction box.
c.
Testing one terminal at a time, place a DMM lead on the terminal and the other lead on
the sensor case.
With the DMM set to its highest range, there should be infinite resistance on each lead. If
there is any resistance at all, there is a short to case.
6.
Test the resistance of junction box terminal pairs.
a.
Test the brown terminal against all other terminals except the red one.
b.
Test the red terminal against all other terminals except the brown one.
c.
Test the green terminal against all other terminals except the white one.
d.
Test the white terminal against all other terminals except the green one.
e.
Test the blue terminal against all other terminals except the gray one.
f.
Test the gray terminal against all other terminals except the blue one.
g.
Test the orange terminal against all other terminals except the yellow and violet ones.
h.
Test the yellow terminal against all other terminals except the orange and violet ones.
i.
Test the violet terminal against all other terminals except the yellow and orange ones.
There should be infinite resistance for each pair. If there is any resistance at all, there is a short
between terminals.
Postrequisites
To return to normal operation:
1. Plug the terminal blocks into the terminal board.
2. Replace the transmitter housing cover.
3. Replace the lid on the sensor junction box.

• Exit each menu separately, working your way back to the top of the menu system.
• Wait until the display times out and returns to displaying process variable data.
C.2.1
Optical switches
The transmitter has two optical switches: Scroll and Select. To activate an optical switch, block the light by
holding your thumb or finger in front of the opening.
If you are in a hazardous environment, do not remove the transmitter housing cover.
Removing the transmitter housing cover in a hazardous environment can cause an
explosion or other damage. You can operate the optical switches through the lens.
The optical switch indicator lights up when the transmitter senses that an optical switch has been
activated. See Table C-1 .

C.2.2
Enter a floating-point value
The display allows you to enter a maximum of 8 characters, including the sign. The decimal point is not
counted as a character. Exponential notation is used to enter values that require more than 8 characters.
216
Micro Motion 9739 MVD Transmitters
Using the transmitter display
Enter a floating-point value using decimal notation
Decimal notation allows you to enter values between –9999999 and 99999999. You can use the
decimal point to enter values with a precision of 0 through 4 (4 digits to the right of the decimal point).
Decimal values entered via the display must meet the following requirements:
• They can contain a maximum of 8 digits, or 7 digits plus a minus sign (–) to indicate a negative
number.
• They can contain a decimal point. The decimal point does not count as a digit. The decimal point
must be positioned so that the precision of the value does not exceed four.
When you first enter the configuration screen, the current configuration value is displayed in decimal
notation, and the active character is flashing. If the value is positive, no sign is displayed. If the value is
negative, a minus sign is displayed.
Procedure
• To change the value:
a.
Activate Select until the digit you want to change is active (flashing).
Select moves the cursor one position to the left. From the leftmost position, Select moves
the cursor to the rightmost digit.
b.
Activate Scroll to change the value of the active digit.
c.
Repeat until all digits are set as desired.
• To change the sign of the value:
• If the current value is negative, activate Select until the minus sign is flashing, then activate
Scroll until the space is blank.
• If the current value is positive and there is a blank space at the left of the value, activate
Select until the cursor is flashing under the blank space, then activate Scroll until the minus
sign appears.
• If the current value is positive and there is no blank space at the left of the value, activate
Select until the cursor is flashing under the leftmost digit, then activate Scroll until the minus
sign appears.
• To move the decimal point:
a.
Activate Select until the decimal point is flashing.
b.
Activate Scroll.
The decimal point is removed from its current position.
c.
Activate Select and watch the position of the decimal point.
As the cursor moves to the left, the decimal point will flash between each pair of digits, up to
a maximum precision of four (four digits to the right of the decimal point).
Tip
If the position is not valid, the decimal point is not displayed. Continue to activate Select until
the decimal point appears at the right of the displayed value.
d.
When the decimal point is in the desired position, activate Scroll.
