For most people trying to learn how to do something new, showing tops reading. This is why short videos in YouTube and other video services continue to grow in popularity compared with long, step-by-step written procedures.

Emerson's James De Loyola


Here on the blog, I have a growing list of posts with “how to” videos (to subscribe via RSS). We’ll add another to this list with this 4-minute video, How to Acknowledge Alarms Using the Display of the Micro Motion 1700/2700 Transmitter. Emerson’s James De Loyola demonstrates the process of viewing and acknowledging alarm conditions from the transmitter display.

Micro-Motion-1700-2700-remote-transmitterThe Micro Motion 1700 and 2700 field and integral mount transmitters are designed for compact integral mounting or mounting on a wall or pipe stand. The transmitter housing is rated for use in up to Class I, Division 1 / Zone 1 hazardous locations.

James opens explaining the various elements in the display including the status LED color indications. Red indicates a critical alarm where immediate attention is required. A yellow status means information or operational status that should be monitored. Green indicates all is well. When the status is blinking red or yellow, it means the alarm has yet to be acknowledged.

He demonstrates a series of steps using the scroll and select buttons to acknowledge all alarms or to look at them individually and acknowledge them per alarm.
