SETTING TERMINAL PARAMETERS
In the section “Terminal parameter settings”, tick the parameters to be recorded in the terminals. If there is no tick next to the parameter, its value will remain unchanged, i.e. as set up during previous settings.
CHANGING BUILT-IN TERMINAL FIRMWARE VERSION
CHANGING PASSWORD TO RECORD SETTINGS IN TERMINAL
