    This field displays how the digital input functions.
    • Normal: the digital input is either associated with a digital input alarm, or it is not associated with another meter function. The meter counts and records the number of incoming pulses normally.

    • Demand Sync: the digital 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 digital 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.

    • Multi-Tariff: the digital input is associated with the multi-tariff function.

    NOTE: The control mode is set in the ION Setup where you configure the feature.
    Debounce 0 to 1000 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. Allowable values are increments of 10 (i.e., 10, 20, 30, etc., up to 1000 ms).
    Associations This field displays additional information if the digital input is already associated with another meter function.
