Starting Your Sensor

Device: MiniMed® 630G insulin pump (MMT-1715K)

Once you have inserted the sensor and connected the transmitter, the pump and transmitter will begin to communicate.

Make sure your pump is on the Home screen so that the message below will be displayed when the sensor is ready to be started. This typically takes less than a minute, but may take up to 10 minutes.

1. Select Start New Sensor.

2. The Sensor warm-up started message will appear.

3. Press Down and then Select to clear.

4. Warm up...will appear on the Home screen until sensor is ready for the first calibration.

If 15 minutes have passed and the Warm up bar does not appear or it looks like it is not progressing, look in the Quick Status screen. If you see the time of Next cal listed, the sensor is in Warm up.

Note: The next time you connect a transmitter, you will see these screens. Select Start New Sensor if you have just inserted a new sensor. Select Reconnect Sensor if you have only disconnected and reconnected the transmitter.
