- Configure the digital input by selecting the parameter and clicking Edit.
- 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.
