Digital Inputs (PAS600L, PAS600LWD, PAS800L)

Presentation

The two embedded digital inputs on Panel Server Universal PAS600L and Advanced PAS800L are used to monitor the state of an external contact or as a pulse counter.

Availability

This function is available on Panel Server Universal PAS600L, PAS600LWD, and Advanced PAS800L .

Digital Input Types

There are two types of digital input:

  • Standard digital inputs, used to record the state of a normally open or normally closed external contact.

  • Pulse digital inputs, used to count pulses delivered by a WAGES (Water, Air, Gas, Electricity, Steam) metering device compliant with standard IEC 62052-11 (minimum pulse width of 30 ms). Pulse digital inputs support up to 16 pulses/second, as per the requirements of the standard.

Each digital input can be individually configured as either standard or pulse.

Pulse Digital Input Parameters

The pulse weight and pulse unit of each pulse input can be configured using EcoStruxure Power Commission software or EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages. A pulse counter is activated when the corresponding digital input is configured as a pulse input.

The pulse weight must be calculated according to the characteristics of the pulses delivered by the meter.

Examples:

  • If each pulse delivered by an active energy meter corresponds to 10 KWh, and the pulse unit is set to Wh, the pulse weight must be set to 10,000 (Wh).

  • If each pulse delivered by a volume meter corresponds to 125 liters, and the pulse unit is set to m3 , the pulse weight must be set to 0.125 m3 .

  • If each pulse delivered by a volume meter corresponds to 1 gallon, and the pulse unit is set to m3 , the pulse weight must be set to 0.003785 m3 .

Setting the Parameters

The digital inputs are set as follows:

  • With EcoStruxure Power Commission (EPC) software

  • On the EcoStruxure Panel Server webpages, at Settings > Embedded Input Management
