You can use the waveform viewer on the meter’s webpages
to view waveforms generated as a result of power quality events.
Overview of how to setup and view waveforms on your
Before you can view waveforms on
the meter’s webpages, you need to perform some basic configuration
to enable waveform capture and store the waveforms in COMTRADE format.
1. Enable waveform capture on your meter
Set the meter’s nominal voltage using ION Setup or the webpages.
2. A waveform is captured when a power quality event occurs
A COMTRADE record is generated and saved to your meter’s
internal SFTP site.
3. View the waveform on the meter’s webpages
Go to the waveform viewer (Monitoring > Waveforms) to explore the
The waveform viewer uses the meter’s COMTRADE
files to display the waveforms. If the events you want to capture
are not included in the default framework, you can customize the meter’s
waveform recording framework.
