•                      The Site I.D., cannot include non-printable ASCII characters, such as nulls or Line Feeds.

•                      The Site I.D. will be cleared when the APS-16 is initialized to default settings.

2                     Type /F [Enter]. The APS-16 will display the Site I.D. Prompt. Key in the desired text (up to 32 characters) and press [Enter].

3                     To display the Site I.D., type /J [Enter]
