Mounting

The EIFE interface is embedded in the cradle of the MasterPact MTZ circuit breaker.

24 Vdc Power Supply

The EIFE interface is powered by the ULP port module.

For more information, refer to ULP System User Guides.

It is recommended to use an UL listed and recognized limited voltage/limited current or a class 2 power supply with a 24 Vdc, 3 A maximum.

NOTE: For 24 Vdc power supply connection, use copper conductors only.

Modbus Address

The EIFE interface accepts the Modbus address of the IMU to which it is connected.

The Modbus address is 255 and cannot be changed.

Intrusive Command Mode

The EIFE intrusive command mode can be configured with EcoStruxure Power Commission software. This software can enable or disable the ability to send the remote control commands over the Ethernet network to the EIFE interface, and to the other modules of the connected IMU.

  • If the intrusive command mode is Locked, the remote control commands are disabled.

  • If the intrusive command mode is Unlocked (default setting), the remote control commands are enabled.

NOTE: Whatever is the intrusive command mode, the only remote control command that is always enabled is the Set Absolute Time command.

Reset Button

The Reset button has three functions, according to the duration of the button pressed.

Time Range

Function

1 s

Resets the IP acquisition mode to its default setting (DHCP).

5 s

Resets the security administrator password to its default setting (AAAAAAAA).

NOTE: If a security administrator role does not already exist, executing this action will create a new security administrator role.

10 s

Resets the EIFE interface to its factory default settings.

Security Administrator Password Reset

The following procedure describes the steps to reset the security administrator password to its default setting:

  1. Press the Reset button on the EIFE interface for 5 seconds. The LED light will flash rapidly in a pattern alternating between red and green, with each color displayed for 100 milliseconds.

  2. On releasing the Reset button, the EIFE interface will enter reset mode for a duration of 30 seconds and prompts the user to reset the password to its default setting. The LED light will flash rapidly in a pattern alternating between red and green, with each color displayed for 100 milliseconds.

  3. Press the Reset button on the EIFE interface to confirm or wait for 30 seconds to cancel the reset.

  4. Once the reset of the security administrator password is confirmed, either the password is reset to the default setting (AAAAAAAA) or a new security administrator role is added.

NOTE:

Every time a reset operation is successfully performed, the reset administrator password counter increments by one.

EIFE Interface Factory Reset

The following procedure describes the steps to reset the EIFE interface to its factory default settings:

  1. Press the Reset button on the EIFE interface for 10 seconds. The LED will rapidly flash in red with a 100 millisecond ON and 100 millisecond OFF interval.

  2. On releasing the Reset button, the EIFE interface will enter reset mode for a duration of 30 seconds and prompts the user to reset the device to its factory default settings. The LED will rapidly flash in red with a 100 millisecond ON and 100 millisecond OFF interval.

  3. Press the Reset button on the EIFE interface to confirm or wait for 30 seconds to cancel the reset.

  4. Once the reset to factory default settings is confirmed, the EIFE interface reboots and all the device settings are reset to their factory default values.

After reset, the EIFE interface restarts and restores the following settings to their factory default values:
