Configuring basic setup parameters using the display

You can configure basic meter parameters using the display.

Proper configuration of the meter’s basic setup parameters is essential for accurate measurement and calculations. Use the Basic Setup screen to define the electrical power system that the meter is monitoring.

If standard (1-sec) alarms have been configured and you make subsequent changes to the meter’s basic setup, all alarms are disabled to prevent undesired alarm operation.

NOTICE
UNINTENDED EQUIPMENT OPERATION
  • Verify all standard alarms settings are correct and make adjustments as necessary.
  • Re-enable all configured alarms.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.
After saving the changes, confirm all configured standard alarm settings are still valid, reconfigure them as required, and re-enable the alarms.

  1. Navigate to Maint > Setup.
  2. Enter the setup password (default is “0”), then press OK.
  3. Navigate to Meter > Basic.
  4. Move the cursor to point to the parameter you want to modify, then press Edit.
  5. Modify the parameter as required, then press OK.
  6. Move the cursor to point to the next parameter you want to modify, press Edit, make your changes, then press OK.
  7. Press the up arrow to exit, then press Yes to save your changes.
