ing request (Bluetooth), e.g. 12345678 wants to pair with your iPad".
Press "Pair".

Android
The coupling passes through automatically.

Enter PIN For authentication, enter in the next menu window the 4-digit PIN.
You can find the PIN:
• Next to the type label on the connection cable
• On the supplement to the documentation

Note:
If an incorrect sensor PIN is entered, the PIN can only be entered
again after a delay time. This time gets longer after each incorrect
entry.
The message "Waiting for authentication" is displayed on the smart-
phone/tablet.

Connected After connection, the sensor adjustment menu is displayed on the


respective adjustment instrument.
If the Bluetooth connection is interrupted, e.g. due to a too large
distance between the two devices, this is displayed on the operating
47095-EN-190404

device. The message disappears when the connection is restored.

Change sensor PIN It is recommended to change the default setting of the sensor PIN to
your own sensor PIN. To do this, go to the menu item "Lock adjust-
ment".

VEGAPULS WL 61 • 4 … 20 mA/HART - two-wire 17


5 Setup with smartphone/tablet (Bluetooth)

After the sensor PIN has been changed, sensor adjustment can be
enabled again. For access (authentication) with Bluetooth, the PIN is
still effective.

5.2 Sensor parameter adjustment


Enter parameters The sensor adjustment menu is divided into two halves:
On the left you'll find the navigation section with the menus "Setup",
"Display", "Diagnosis" and others.
The selected menu item, recognisable by the colour change, is dis-
played in the right half.

Fig. 17: Example of an app view - Setup sensor adjustment

Enter the requested parameters and confirm via the keyboard or the
editing field. The settings are then active in the sensor.
Close the app to terminate connection.

5.3 Adjustment
Since a radar sensor is a distance measuring instrument, the distance
from the sensor to the product surface is measured. For indication of
the real level, an allocation of the measured distance to the percent-
age height must be carried out. To perform the adjustment, enter the
distance with full and empty vessel, see the following example:
47095-EN-190404

Fig. 18: Parameterization example


1 Min. level = max. measuring distance
2 Max. level = min. measuring distance

If these values are not known, an adjustment with the distances of for
example 10 % and 90 % is possible. Starting point for these distance
specifications is always the seal surface of the thread or flange. By
means of these settings, the real level will be calculated.
The actual product level during this adjustment is not important,
because the min./max. adjustment is always carried out without
changing the product level. These settings can be made ahead of
time without the instrument having to be installed.
