|Question:||I have on earlier PC-8000 model. Where can I find information?|

|Question:||How can I control and customize the LCD display?|
|Answer:||The LCD can be used to display current and voltage settings, outlet status, or any message of your choice. You can operate the LCD in "billboard" style, displaying a series of user defined messages. To customize the LCD, you'll want to write a script using our BASIC scripting language. You can also use the display to send messages from remote systems (ie. service alert warnings). To send messages remotely, write a script first, saving it in EEPROM then start the script from your remote system. Learn more about scripting here.|
|Question:||What is the default IP address? How do I reset to defaults? What is the default password?|
To reset to defaults, use a non-conductive pen (NOT A PAPERCLIP) to click the "Reset to default" button located near the network connector. The master login "admin" and password "1234" are restored as well as the network settings.
