Procedure to switch between Single Device and Network modes in ION Setup
For temporary purposes, you can perform the following procedure:
Select from the menu, File -> Exit and when the Exit Options dialog is displayed, select the "User Logoff" radio button and click on OK. This will display the standard logon dialog.
Use the default logon of "supervisor" and the default password of 0 (zero). To access single device mode, make sure the "Single ION device configuration mode" checkbox is checked, otherwise network mode will be used. Click on OK to proceed.
To change the ION Setup start-up mode permamently:
Select from the menu, Tools -> Options (or click on the checkbox icon on the toolbar) and click on the View tab.
Select a new Startup Mode as either "Metershop Mode" (Single Device), "Network Mode", or "Power User Mode" (shows the standard logon dialog at startup which will allow you to switch between the modes but requires you to enter a password each time).
Click on OK to save the changes.
Reminder that Single Device mode will only function with direct serial/modem or TCP connections (no gateway connections) and will only function with ION devices which support ION protocol (no 6200 ION or CM/PM PowerLogic devices which rely on Modbus).
