This application guide is an addition to the instruction manual. Please review manual to ensure you are familiar with configuring
the MultiRanger 200 using the IR Hand Held Programmer or the Dolphin Plus software tool.
Setting up the Common Parameters
These parameters are configured for all the open channel flow measuring applications supported by the MultiRanger 200.
G means 'global.' If f you have dual channel unit then the index is either 1 or 2 . For both, select 00.
Here we have chosen one value. Other choices can be selected from the manual as needed.

Parameter and Value Definition **
Selects Open Channel Flow measurement.
Sets measured material to liquid.
Sets maximum processing speed, or speed of response, to
Selects transducer (e.g. 102 = XPS 10) connected to MultiRanger
Sets units for head measurement (e.g 1 = meters).
Sets the distance from zero point of measurement (many times
bottom of the weir or channel) to the sensor surface. Head is
measured with reference to this zero point
Sets the range of head measurement. Often equal to the maximum
Permits the liquid level to go below the zero point to the amount set
here without indicating an LOE condition (pre-set is 20% of span).
