We have a Micro Motion 2700 Foundation Fieldbus, but we don't have a handheld to set it up. How do I change the flow range through the display?
Expert’s answer :How to set up a Micro Motion 2700 FOUNDATION Fieldbus through the display
Hoo boy. You won’t have all the data available through the display. First, you need to take a look at Chapter 4 of the technical manual.
It has a table of the type of data you can access through a FOUNDATION Fieldbus (FF) handheld, PROLINK II, or local display. And you’ll see you won’t get to the entire configuration, just the basics.
Here’s the entire table, where you can see clearly what you can do using each of the options.
In this case, I recommend you get a field communicator to change the configuration.
If the device is already communicating through the FF network, then you can change these parameters remotely through the control system. Still, you really should get a field tool to check your devices out.
