A customer needed to re-range a Siemens SITRANS P DS III transmitter without applying pressure. He’d read my earlier blog post about using the pushbuttons to program the DS III (Pressure Transmitter Pushbuttons to the Rescue!), and where to find the Z-fold instruction sheet.
All was going to plan, until he started looking for the settings for lower range value (LRV) and upper range value (URV). And then, in an all-too-familiar scenario, he hit a roadblock.

Do you need to send an instrument to the factory for repair or service? Before you disconnect it, pack it up, and ship it out, be sure you do the following:
- Make a backup or copy of your instrument configuration, so you can quickly reinstate the settings.
- Make sure you have a written record of your settings on file. Several manufacturers include a configuration worksheet in the instrument user manual. If it’s not there, you can write them on a copy of the quick-start or setup installation guide.
