Setting up alarms using the display
You must use ION Setup to create logic and custom (Cust1s) alarms. After the alarm is created, you can use ION Setup or the display to modify the alarm parameters.
It is recommended that you use ION Setup to configure standard (1-Sec) alarms. ION Setup supports a higher resolution to allow you to specify more decimal places when setting up the pickup setpoint and dropout setpoint values for certain measurements.
- Navigate to the alarms setup menu screens and select the alarm you want to set up.
Configure the setup parameters as explained in the different
alarm setup sections.
NOTE: If you use ION Setup to program decimal values on a standard (1-Sec) alarm, do not use the meter display to make subsequent changes to any alarm parameters (including enable/disable), as doing so will cause removal of all decimals previously programmed through ION Setup.
- Click Yes to save the changes to the meter when prompted.
