In the Supervisor Menu, you can enable or disable monitors or individual sensors. The Supervisor Menu scans all sensors for status updates, and performs diagnostics on alert conditions. The supervisor can also perform a factory default to restore the device to a pre-installation state.

To navigate the Supervisor Menu, complete the following steps:

  1. With power on and the warm-up complete, press MENU, then UP and DOWN until the display shows Operator Menu > Supervisor Menu.
  2. Select Supervisor Menu and press ENTER to activate the menu. The display shows Sensor Mgmt > Fan Arry Config. This enables the user to scroll to each supervisor sub-menu.
  3. If the Supervisor PIN is enabled, the display shows Enter SUPV PIN > 0000.
  4. Enter the four digit PIN to access the Supervisor Menu. Make the PIN entry from left to right, one digit at a time. Scroll up or down to display 0 to 9. When the correct number displays, select ENTER to accept the digit. The cursor automatically moves to the next position. If an error is made after you press ENTER, press ESC to go back and change the digit. When you enter the last digit, the PIN stores in non-volatile memory. If the Supervisor PIN is enabled, you require the PIN each time the Supervisor Menu is entered.
    Note: To access the RA-1270 supervisor menu features, write down and retain the PIN in system configuration documentation for future use. From the factory, the PIN is 2222 and the supervisor PIN is disabled.
  5. When the PIN is correctly entered, the display shows Sensor Mgmt > Fan Arry Config. Use UP and DOWN to scroll through the selections shown in the following table.
