    Information that identifies the message source. Shown on the Alarms page.

    Sensor ID

    Type the ID for the display, when applicable.

    If the generic message contains the ID for the display which is intended to receive the specific message, use the same display ID here. The display ID in the generic message is part of the message heading, for example DD1.

    The accepted ID is one character from 1 ... 9 or A ... Z. The display uses asterisk (*) as wildcard character. It means that any character is accepted when receiving sensor ID in the message.

    Select whether or not to use Vaisala checksum. Vaisala checksum is Modulus‑65536 (CS4) checksum, in hexadecimal format.
  7. To save the changes, press Apply.
    The changes are valid only after pressing Apply.
