1028 Preferences Screen
Upon initial monitor setup, the parameters page contains the inspection company details and allows for time and date changes along with selectable picocuries or becquerel settings settings. A default PIN code 1111 can be changed to a four digit custom code to prevent others from reading or tampering during the test process. For Inspection Company setup, follow steps 1 through 3 and click "ok" when completed. The radon monitor should be clear of any test data and the display should show Start Test = 5 to allow changes.
