CAUTION Only connect compatible measurement devices to the transmitter. Attempting to connect incompatible devices or cables can damage the equipment. Refer to transmitter specifications for compatibility information.

You can replace probes both when transmitter power is on and when it is off. There is no need to disconnect any wires from the transmitter; just detach the probe from the probe cable connector (5-pin M12).

When you replace a probe, measurement parameters and outputs will behave differently depending on whether the new probe's parameters are the same as the parameters of the old probe:

  • If you replace a probe with a new one that has the same measurement parameters as the removed probe, the transmitter will continue to show those measurements once it detects the new probe.
  • If you replace a probe with a new one that has different measurement parameters as the removed probe, you need to reconfigure the analog outputs for the new probe. The measurement parameters shown on the transmitter display will be changed automatically.
