SNMP Options Module
SNMP is enabled/disabled based on the Enable SNMP register in the Communications module. The SNMP Options module is used with the Alarm Options module for SNMP trapping. It is a core module that cannot be deleted, copied or linked. It is configured by altering the contents of its setup registers.
The SNMP Options module has no programmable inputs.
This register enables or disables SNMP trapping on your meter. SNMP must also be enabled in order for SNMP trapping to be enabled. Refer to the Communications module for SNMP enabling.
These registers specify the IP address and optional port number for the SNMP trap receivers. This value may either be:

|Input links, setup registers or labels have changed.
The Event output register stores the following information for each ION event: time stamp, priority, cause, effect, and any values or conditions associated with the cause and effect.
Responses to special conditions
The following table summarizes how the module behaves under different conditions.
|Response of output registers
|When the meter is started or powered-up (either the first time, or after a shutdown).
|All output registers retain the values they held when the meter was shutdown.
