Some of the System Menu selections have user functions to adjust variables to match the condition being tested. Any adjustments changes made will reset to their default values at FIT power on.

The System Menu has the following functions:

BackLit—Turn backlight On/Off. The default setting is Off.

EOL—Turn the EOL termination on the FIT On/Off. The EOL termination is controlled by the FIT depending on the function being used, either the 1-ON-1 Mode Default EOL is on or the Monitor and Scan Bus mode default EOL is Off. This command allows the user to override the EOL status.

Mode—Select the Install mode or the Expert mode. In expert mode when using Scan Bus menu more attributes are available to read from the device such as Model, Firmware Version, Application name and more. The default mode is Install mode and is recommended for most users.

Battery—Select Battery to perform a battery test, display the battery status of Good/Replace or display the battery voltage

Baudrate—Select FIT baud rate to Auto Baud, 9600, 19200, 38400, 76800. Auto Baud is default mode.

FitAddr—This menu allows the user to change the FIT address on the MS/TP bus. The default address is 1. If the FIT determines there is already a device addressed at 1, it will automatically default to the next available free address.

Sys Time—Displays the amount of time FIT has been powered in seconds.

PowerOf—Displays the amount of time in minutes the FIT will stay in operation before moving into a Sleeping mode. Adjustable from zero to 99 minutes. Default is 15 minutes and zero minutes means never enter sleep mode.
