Alarm event records

Each event is stored using two records:

  • A "primary" record, which is created when the insulation alarm occurs. This contains the insulation value.

  • A "secondary" record, which is created for the following type of events:

    • Acknowledged insulation alarm

    • Transient insulation alarm

    • Power failure or power cycle

    • Toroid disconnect

    • Locating signal unavailable

    • Product or channel error

    • Automatic commission initiation

Description of an Event Record in the Log

Word 5

Uint64 Time tagging of event (using the same code as for the product date/time)

Uint32

  • 0….1

  • 0x40, 0x20

  • 10000...10023, 1110...1134

Record identifier:

  • Word 6, most significant byte: information for primary/secondary record. This field takes the value 1 for the primary record and value 0 for the secondary record.

  • Word 6, least significant byte: type of data stored in the Value field.

  • Word 7: address of the Modbus register that is the source of the data in the Value field.

Word 11

Uint64

Depending on the type of record (primary or secondary):

  • Primary record (when the event occurs): Insulation resistance value (in Ohm) when the event occurred (encoded in Float32 in the last 2 registers).

  • Secondary record (for the earlier list of events) (encoded in Uint32 in the last 2 registers)

Word 12 Uint16 1...65534

Primary/secondary record identifier for the event:

  • In the case of a primary record for an event, this identifier is an odd integer; numbering starts at 1 and the number is incremented by 2 for each new event.

  • In the case of a secondary record for an event, this identifier is equal to the primary record identifier plus 1.

Example of an event

The next 2 records relate to an example insulation alarm that occurred on October 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm and was acknowledged at 12:29 pm.
