Energy parameters are logged as accumulating values but are displayed as incremental values on an interval basis. All other parameters are logged and displayed as the actual value recorded.

Retrieving a Data Log

Interval data logs can be retrieved using the methods given in the following table:

CSV

To view the list of all the available log files, follow steps 2 to 4 in the section Getting an Interval Data Log using FTPS. Files are in the format: Device Name.csv where the device name is the name given to the MasterPact MTZ drawout circuit breaker. For example, a device named building 1 utility entrance is Building 1 Utility Entrance.csv.

When the log files are exported, the date and time are appended to the file name in the following format: _YYYYMMDDHHMMSS. For example, Building 1 Utility Entrance_20100218115216.csv. This indicates that the file was exported on 2010 February 18 at 11:52:16 AM.

NOTE:
  • The circuit breaker status in log file is coded by numbers. For information on circuit breaker status, refer to the description of the Modbus register 12001 in the Modbus Communication Guides.

  • The device log file may contain invalid values (-9999, -99999, 32768) for electrical parameters based on the data read from the device.

Log Format

Data is logged in the CSV file with the following format:

Row

Data in CSV Format

Description

1

EIFE name, EIFE serial number, EIFE address, device name, device local ID, device type name, logging interval.

This row contains the column headings for the information in row 2.

2

EIFE 555, 23227,157.198.184.116, building1 utility entrance, 893, MasterPact MTZ,15

This row contains the information about the EIFE interface and the logged device.

3

This row is blank.

4

,,,topic id 1,topic id 2,topic id 3

This row contains the column headings for the topic IDs in row 5. A topic ID is a numerical reference to the quantity being logged. Topic IDs are used to identify the quantity, regardless of the device or language. The first three commas are used for layout purposes in a spreadsheet application.

5

,,,1617,1621,1625

This row contains the topic IDs of the values logged.

6

This row is blank.

7

Error, UTC offset (Minutes), local time stamp, apparent energy (kVAh), real energy (kWh), reactive energy (kVARh)

This row contains the column headings for the data logged in rows 8 and higher.

8 and higher

These rows contain the logged data.
