  5. Once the parameter has been configured, click OK to save the setting to the meter.
    Parameter Value/range Description
    Input Mode

    Pulse, KYZ, A/C,


    Specifies how the meter processes the signal:

    • Pulse: the meter counts an entire pulse (from off-on to on-off) as one input.

    • KYZ: the meter counts a transition (from off-on or from on-off) as one input.

    • A/C: the meter detects analog signals where the ON condition is based on the presence of an AC signal.

    • IRIG-B1: the meter detects an IRIG-B time synchronization signal.

    Polarity Inverting/Non-Inverting Specifies if the signal from the digital port is inverted or not inverted.
    Debounce 0.000–1.000 Specifies how long (in seconds) the signal must remain in a state to be considered a valid state change.
    Assigned Port Defined by your meter’s hardware Your meter’s physical digital input port.
    EventLog Mode Log Off/Log On Specifies if events generate log entries.
    State OFF/ON Indicates the status of the digital input.
    1 IRIG-B can only be connected to one of the onboard digital inputs, not an option module. You must also configure your meter’s clock to use IRIG-B time synchronization.
