Revision D


This section presents the standard interface options and typical operations to retrieve data from

the system.


The standard Main Electronics enclosure for the system serves as a SCADA RTU and HMI. The

standard enclosure has a 2x20 alphanumeric display and a 3-button access menu. Larger systems have a
standard LCD display and optional touch screen interfaces. Pressing all three buttons
(Left+Right+Enter) brings up the 3-button menu. The 3-button menu has the following selections:

Compress Data – Compresses data to the USB stick, if present, for data collection and transfer

Change Line Size – Change the line size of connected RheoVac MSPs. Typically, the factory
sets this to the specified line size on the order. If a probe is moved to a different location, the user
must check for line size and re-set this data as needed to ensure accurate measurement.

Shutdown – Provides option to Shutdown or Reboot the system

Cancel – Exit the 3-button menu

3.1.1 Compressing Data (to USB Stick)

The data stored in your CMS can be downloaded to a USB memory device, which is provided in

the instrument’s main electronics enclosure. Intek recommends having this USB stick disconnected from
the main electronics during normal operations. All the data is stored by the instrument on its internal
flash drive. Follow these steps when data needs to be retrieved and stored on the USB memory stick:

1. Insert the USB memory stick in the USB port, as shown. (Figure 10)

Figure 10: USB stick installation

2. On the front panel keypad, press all three buttons (Left+Right+Enter) at the same time and

release. Compress Data is the default selection, alternately, you can use the arrow keys and
Enter to navigate the menu. With Compress Data highlighted as shown in Figure 11 either wait
for the timer to reach zero or press enter to compress the entire CMS folder and save it to the
USB stick. No other user interaction is required. Figure 12 shows the screens that will follow as
data is compressed and copied to the USB memory stick.
