Configuring waveform capture using ION Setup

You can configure your meter to capture waveforms when it experiences a sag or swell event or a manual trigger without any events, and to export the waveform data to COMTRADE files.
NOTE: See your meter’s Modbus register list at www.se.com for the Modbus mapping information and basic instructions on command interface.
  1. Start ION Setup and connect to your meter.
  2. Open the Waveform Configuration screen in the Power Quality folder.
  3. Click Edit to configure the Setup parameters as required.
  4. Click Send to save your changes to the meter.

    Samples per Cycle

    Samples per cycle:

    • 128 samples/cycle

    • 64 samples/cycle

    • 32 samples/cycle

    • 16 samples/cycle

    Select the Samples per cycle based on the requirement

    • Maximum 8 cycles for 128 samples/cycle

    • Maximum 16 cycles for 64 samples/cycle

    • Maximum 32 cycles for 32 samples/cycle

    • Maximum 64 cycles for 16 samples/cycle

    Pre/Post allocation:

    • Pre-cycles: Number of cycles that will be captured in waveforms prior to waveform trigger

    • Post-cycles : Number of cycles that will be captured in waveforms post waveform trigger

    The Pre-cycles can be configured based on the Samples per cycle

    • 1 – 8 (for 128 samples/cycle, sum of pre and post cycles must be 8)

    • 1 – 16 (for 64 samples/cycle, sum of pre and post cycles must be 16)

    • 1 – 32 (for 32 samples/cycle, sum of pre and post cycles must be 32)

    • 1 – 64 (for 16 samples/cycle, sum of pre and post cycles must be 64)

    The Post-cycles will be automatically configured based on the Pre-cycles

    NOTE: It is recommended for the end user to configure equal number of pre and post cycles to visualize sag/swell events in waveform.
