Configuration of Wireless Energy Devices Through Webpages

To configure PowerTag Energy devices with EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages, proceed as follows:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Wireless Devices > Wireless Devices to view the list of the paired wireless devices.

    Result: The list of paired devices is displayed (with Connected written in green under the device name).

  2. Select the required PowerTag Energy device to modify the configuration of the selected wireless device.

    Result: The parameters of the PowerTag Energy device are displayed.

  3. Enter the data in the fields, referring to the following tables for more information about the parameters.

    • Click Apply Changes to save the settings
    • or
    • Click Cancel Changes to revert the settings.
    NOTE: When saving the settings, a message may be displayed indicating either that 90% of wireless bandwidth capacity is reached or that the Panel Server is over configured. Follow the recommendation in the message to increase the communication period of a particular device or to reduce the number of wireless devices.

The following tables list the parameters for the configuration of wireless PowerTag Energy devices.

The fields displayed depend of the type of PowerTag Energy device.

  • Bottom/Load: The PowerTag Energy device is mounted at the bottom of the device.

Current flow

For PowerTag Energy devices F160 and Rope, select the Current flow to define the convention for PowerTag Energy device to count energies. See the section Current Flow for more information about filling this parameter.

Power factor sign convention

Select the power factor sign convention form the list. The setting has an influence on the convention used to sign the power factor.

  • IEC

  • IEEE

For more information, see the section Power Factor Sign Convention.

Communication Settings

Parameter name Description

Communication period (s)

When available for the selected wireless device, you can set the communication period at a value different from the value set at family devices level. Select a value of between 2 and 120 seconds from the list (default setting 5 seconds).

NOTE: It is possible to set 2 seconds as the communication period of a device which belongs to the Energy-related wireless devices family, like Acti9 Active , Acti9 PowerTag , Acti9 Vigi, PowerLogic Tag (PLT).

Modbus virtual

Parameter name Description

Virtual server ID

Enter the ID of the Modbus virtual server.

Associated circuit breaker

Parameter name Description

Circuit breaker characteristics

Circuit breaker label (optional)

Enter the label of the associated circuit breaker.

Rated current (A)

Enter the value for the rated current in Amps of the associated circuit breaker or the protective device rating. It cannot be higher than Imax of the device.

Rated Voltage (V) (optional)

Enter the value of the rated voltage for the associated circuit breaker.

  • LN rated voltage for 3P4W installation.

  • LL rated voltage for 3P3W installation.

Load information

Load zone (optional)

The Load operating time counter increments only when the power is greater or equal to the value set. You can set the value between 10 W and 15000 W.

Contexualization data

Parameter name Description

Commodity (optional)

Select the commodity required from the list to indicate the main purpose of the device.

Usage (optional)

Select the usage required from the list to indicate the precise function of the device, for example, the type of lighting to be monitored: Lighting (Exterior and Park) or Lighting (Interior)

Current Flow

For PowerTag Energy devices F160 and Rope, selecting the current flow defines the convention for the PowerTag Energy device to count energies.

The current flow can be Direct or Reverse:

  • Direct: If the arrow marked on the PowerTag Energy device is in the same direction as the current flow.

  • Reverse: If the arrow marked on the PowerTag Energy device is in the opposite direction to the current flow.

The following figures show the location of the arrow marked on the PowerTag Energy F160 and Rope:

PowerTag Rope

Power Factor Sign Convention

The power factor sign convention setting can be one of the following:

  • IEC: In this setting,

    • when active and apparent power is received, the power factor sign is .

    • when active and apparent power is delivered, the power factor sign is +.

  • IEEE: In this setting,

    • when the load is resistive, the power factor sign is +.

    • when the load is inductive, the power factor sign is –.
