Flexim G704 with fieldbus - connect to DeltaV

I have a new Flexim Ultrasonic flow meter that shows flow and other variables (sounds speed, etc.) locally, but in AMS and DeltaV (14.3.1) shows "bad sensor failure". Only temperature and signal strength show "Good". All the other variables, including standard volumetric flow rate, show "bad". Any idea what I am doing wrong? The DD I downloaded from the Emerson website would not load, however the one that was on the media supplied by Flexim loaded okay and I was able to commission the device. I can configure an AI for temperature and it works fine, but flow rate still shows "bad sensor failure". Any thoughts?

    Good to hear you solved it.

    Strange these settings were not mapped to parameters (in the transducer block) you could set remotely. Would be very convenient like you say. When there are many parameters such as for flow meters and valves, a good EDDL user interface with logical menus and wizards (methods) is critical such that you get the frequently used stuff up front not cluttered by rarely used stuff that should be further down the menu.

    In the future with APL (single pair Ethernet) devices will have an embedded web server so you can access the device settings that way. Learn more about the future APL from this essay: www.linkedin.com/.../
