Alarm event priorities

Your meter’s alarm priorities correspond to event priority ranges.

Alarm priority Event priority
High (red) 192 - 255
Medium (yellow) 128 - 191
Low (blue) 64 - 127
Info Only (no alarm)1 1 - 63
None (no alarm or event)1 0
1 Alarms with priority of Info Only or None are not indicated or displayed.

Info Only and None event priority

Alarms with a priority of Info Only or None are not shown on the meter’s display, and do not function as alarms. If the alarm’s priority is set to Info Only, and the event priority is greater than the event log cutoff value, the associated event is recorded in the meter’s event log. If the alarm’s priority is set to None, the event priority is automatically set to zero, and no associated event is logged in the meter’s event log.

For events that you want to log for future reference or troubleshooting, but don’t want alarm functions, set the alarm priority to Info Only.

For nuisance events that frequently occur and you have no desire to log for reference or troubleshooting, set the alarm priority to None.
