Expert’s answer: Can you do a Promag 400 loop test with the display?

You’d think that a Promag 400 loop test would be simple. Just look it up in the manual, right? Except for some reason the Endress+Hauser manual calls the loop test a simulation! Come on, E+H! Everyone else says output! Why you gotta be difficult?

As soon as you grasp the special terminology for your procedure, you can follow these steps to simulate the current output:

  • Menu > Diagnostic > Simulation > Simulation current output

You can simulate a bunch of other stuff too, like your process values and whatnot. And luckily, you can find all those options in this here menu. So go for it! Start simulating!
