Although this password may be changed. it is not recommended. A “supervisor” level password might be required by well-trained maintenance personnel. This manual will refer to an “operator” level password and an “supervisor” level password.SECTION 2 Mark II Set Up User Passwords: Adjusting the settings of the Mark II can severely effect the operation of the fire pump controller. The “operator” level password allows changes that might normally be made by maintenance personnel. then forgotten. Any adjustments should be done by qualified personnel. The “operator” level password is shown below. Cost to the owner may be incurred if the factory password is changed. When prompted for the Operator Level password enter the following key sequence: METER-MENU-METER-MENU-PRINT-ENTER The Supervisor Level password will be supplied as necessary or will already be known by the person performing the changes to the controller. This password is also on a label affixed to the back of the Mark II on the inside of the controller door.
