Configuring LED energy pulsing using ION Setup

You can configure your meter’s energy pulsing LEDs for energy pulsing using ION Setup.
  1. Start ION Setup.
  2. Open the Setup Assistant for your device.
  3. Select LED pulsing.
  4. Select the tab that corresponds to the energy pulsing LED you want to configure.
  5. Configure the following basic parameters for your meter’s energy pulsing LEDs.

    Energy pulsing LED parameters available through ION Setup

    Parameter Description
    Source Link this input to the value that you want to pulse on the LED.
    Enable Configuring this setting should only be performed by users with advanced knowledge of ION, the device template and the power system the device is connected to.
    Int Mode Specifies the integration mode for the LED (forward, reverse, absolute or net).
    Kt The amount of source energy required to make the LED pulse.
    Pulse Width

    The minimum time in seconds between LED pulse transitions.

    Pulser Mode Select when the energy pulsing LEDs will pulse:
    • Always: the energy pulsing LEDs are always pulsing based on their energy source value.

    • Test Only: the energy pulsing LEDs turn off and will not pulse.

    Pulse ovrld

    Pulsing normally indicates that the energy pulsing LED should be operating normally.

    Pulsing suspended indicates that the energy pulsing LED is not able to pulse quickly enough. Modify the Kt value to decrease the number of energy pulses or decrease the pulse width, if supported by the device collecting pulses.

    NOTE: To perform specialized configuration go into the advanced mode of ION Setup and modify, disable or add a new Calibration Pulser module. These are advanced procedures that should only be performed if you have advanced knowledge of ION and the power system your meter is connected to.

    See the ION Reference, available from www.se.com, for more information.
