    Parameter Values Description

    Label

    Use this field to change the default label and assign a descriptive name to this status input.

    Control Mode

    Normal, Demand Sync, Input Metering

    This field displays how the status input functions.

    • Normal: the status input is not associated with another meter function. The meter counts and records the number of incoming pulses normally.

    • Demand Sync: the status input is associated with one of the input sync demand functions. The meter uses the incoming pulse to synchronize its demand period with the external source.

    • Input Metering: the status input is associated with one of the input metering channels. The meter counts and records the number of incoming pulses and related consumption data associated with the pulses.

    Debounce

    0 to 9999

    Debounce is the time delay that compensates for mechanical contact bounce. Use this field to set how long (in milliseconds) the external signal must remain in a certain state to be considered a valid state change.

    Associations

    This field displays additional information if the status input is already associated with another meter function.
