The Access Password is defined by the user in the parameter Password Change (PAS.(), present in the Calibration Level. The factory default for the password code is 1111.
The Master Password is intended for allowing the user to define a new password in the event of it being forgotten. The Master Password doesn’t grant access to all parameters, only to the Password Change parameter (PAS(). After defining the new password, the protected parameters may be accessed (and modified) using this new password.
