-Setting the Stage Level with SDI-12 Command
0XS+10.00+1! – This command sets the water level reading
to 10.00 feet of water
-Changing measurement units
0XUP+4+3! – This command sets the units of water level
measurement to Meters of Water (4) with 3 Right Digits
See CFB Manual For a Complete List of SDI-12 Commands.
Purging the Orifice Tube
• 2 Setup Options for Purging
– Auto Purge – Schedule an Orifice Line Purge at
Regular Scheduled Interval
– AutoBlockage Detection
• If Auto Blockage Detection is Enabled the CFB Will Save Battery Life and Desiccant
Life By Purging Only When a Blockage of the Orifice Line is Detected.
