Part 2 of 4: How to Navigate the Tools Menu for the Brooks Instrument 0260 Power Supply, Smart Interface and Controller


Now that your Brooks Smart Interface (BSI) 0260 Power Supply, Smart Interface and Controller is configured with Brooks mass flow controllers and/or pressure controllers, let’s review the Tools menu. It’s important to note you can only view the Tools menu once the module is stopped.

Extract TAG NUMBER from a Single Device: This feature will return the tag number from a single connected instrument in case the tag number is not known.

Select Gas Number: When a device has multiple gas curves the required curved can be selected. Be sure to re-initialize the system after a change and prior to use.

Select Flow Unit: The flow units displayed on the screen can be selected per device.

Totalizer Function: The totalizer can be stopped, reset and started again.

Configure User Defined Alarms: The alarms, depending on device type, can be selected and configured.

Select Setpoint Source: On certain instruments, the setpoint source can be set to analog so that the software only monitors the instruments.
