QUESTION: How to reset the alarm when it is set to relay latching mode with manual reset?
I am using a DI-50E with an analog sensor input and two control outputs. I want to add a latching alarm relay, but do not see how I can reset the alarm when it is set to relay latching mode with manual reset?
Our Tiger 320 Series NZ201 Setpoints & Relays Supplement has some answers for you! In addition to showing you how to set up latched setpoints with manual relay reset, Page 23 shows you that a manual relay reset can be done by having an operator press the Up and Down buttons, located on the meter's front panel, at the same time. As explained on Page 22 for Manual Relay Reset mode, you can also reset the latched relay by connecting a remote manual switch between either the Hold or Lock digital inputs and the Common input; this method requires you to set Code_9 as well, for example, to  to use the Hold input or to  to use the Lock input (see Page 9 of our Tiger 320 Series NZ101 Programming Code Sheet supplement for a complete explanation of functions that can be assigned to the digital inputs using Code_9 ).

QUESTION: I can't connect my computer to my meter via RS485 to USB.
Users attempting to use RS485 programming functionality on Texmate Tiger series meters and bargraphs may encounter issues concerning a failure to connect to the meter. This problem is most commonly reported on Windows 10 operating systems. The reason for these problems is usually due to lacking hardware drivers for an RS485 to USB adapter. Texmate does not supply any such adapters and cannot provide technical support for them.
We suggest checking your USB adapter's manufacturer's website to locate hardware drivers that will function with your choice of OS before submitting a technical support request form. For reference, the adapters used by Texmate for calibration are ULINX USOPTL4 converters. Drivers for these particular devices are available on the Advantech website.
QUESTION: How do I reset the Tiger series meters and bargraphs to factory default settings?
- Turn off the meter
- Short rear pins - Common pin (11) to Hold pin (9)
- Turn the meter on. A rolling display of segments will occur if the pins are shorted correctly.
- Press the Up arrow and Down arrow buttons at the same time. This will cause the meter to cycle through all segments, then begin a rolling display of “8”s synchronized to the setpoint LEDs.
At any point during display testing, pressing the Prog (Program) button will cause the meter to display “0.00”.
- Turn the meter off and remove the short from the rear pins.
The meter is now reset to factory default settings.
