Installation Considerations
Installation and maintenance of the 9300 Series meter should only be performed by
qualified, competent personnel that have appropriate training and experience
with high voltage and current devices. The meter must be installed in accordance
with all Local and National Electrical Codes.
DANGER
Failure to observe the following instructions may result in severe injury or death.
During normal operation of the 9300 Series meter, hazardous voltages are
present on its terminal strips, and throughout the connected potential
transformer (PT), current transformer (CT), digital (status) input, control power
and external I/O circuits. PT and CT secondary circuits are capable of generating
lethal voltages and currents with their primary circuit energized. Follow
standard safety precautions while performing any installation or service work
(i.e. removing PT fuses, shorting CT secondaries, etc).
The terminal strips on the meter base should not be user-accessible after
installation.
Do not use digital output devices for primary protection functions. These
include applications where the devices perform energy limiting functions or
provide protection of people from injury. Do not use the 9300 Series in
situations where failure of the devices can cause injury or death, or cause
sufficient energy to be released that can start a fire. The meter can be used for
secondary protection functions.
Do not HIPOT/Dielectric test the digital (status) inputs, digital outputs, or
communications terminals. Refer to the label on the 9300 Series meter for the
maximum voltage level the device can withstand.
CAUTION
Observe the following instructions, or permanent damage to the meter may occur.
The 9300 Series meter offers a range of hardware options that affect input
ratings. The 9300 Series meter’s serial number label lists all equipped options.
Applying current levels incompatible with the current inputs will permanently
damage the meter. This document provides installation instructions applicable
to each hardware option.
The 9300 Series meter’s chassis ground must be properly connected to the
switchgear earth ground for the noise and surge protection circuitry to function
correctly. Failure to do so will void the warranty.
Terminal screw torque: Barrier-type (current, voltage, and relay terminal screws:
1.35 Nm (1.00 ft-lbf) max. Captured-wire type (digital inputs/outputs,
communications, power supply: 0.90 Nm (0.66 ft.lbf) max.

Front Panel Display Resolution
When displaying numeric values, the front panel display screen can show up to
nine digits of resolution. This nine digit resolution is available when the display
screen is set to display one parameter. Any multi-parameter screen displays up to
five digits of resolution.
If you require more digit resolution than is available, use ACCESS software to
display data. If a value is too large to be displayed on your display screen (i.e.
greater than 99,999 on a two parameter screen), the front panel uses an abbreviated
engineering notation with standard metric prefixes to indicate the magnitude of
the reading. The following table provides some examples:

Custom Front Panel Displays
Custom front panel displays can be created showing any data the meter measures
or calculates. Each display screen can be configured to display any measurements
you require. You can also adjust the size of the characters in each screen so you can
easily read the device’s display from farther away.
There are only eight display screens available for configuration. Since all eight of
the front panel’s screen displays are factory-configured, an existing display must
be changed if you want a custom display. Refer to “Default Front Panel Display
Screens” on page 25 and/or “Display Configuration” on page 50 for details on the
eight default display screens.
The technical note Custom Front Panel Displays has complete details for
personalizing your meter’s display screens.
Before Customizing the Front Panel
In order for the customized screens to be displayed in the front panel’s display, the
meter’s Display Mode must be properly set. Ensure that the Display Options
module’s Display Mode setup register is set to PROGRAMMABLE. This is the default
setting. If it is required, you can use the meter’s front panel or ACCESS software to
set this register.
Customizing Displays Using the Front Panel
The SCREEN SETUP menu screen allows you to change the data displayed on the
eight display screens using the front panel (see “Screen Setup Menu” on page 34).
Customizing Displays Using Designer
The front panel display of the 9300 Series is controlled by the Display modules and
Display Options modules. Refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference for detailed
descriptions of the Display module and the Display Options module. Refer to
“ION Enterprise: Designer” on page 83 for details on using Designer.
Display Module
A Display module controls which values are displayed on a display screen, and
how these values are presented. Up to four parameters can be linked to a Display
module — these parameters appear on the display screen when the module is
activated.
Page 38
Chapter 2 - Using The Front Panel
9300 Series User’s Guide
Before Customizing the Front Panel
Links to a Display module can be made using Designer or the front panel. Each
Display module has one setup register, Display Type, which sets the number of
parameters that the display screen will show.

The Display Type setup register has five options: ONE PARAMETER, TWO
PARAMETER, THREE PARAMETER, FOUR PARAMETER, AND DISABLED. The number of
inputs for the Display module should match the Display Type setup register.
If you select a Display Type with more parameters than are currently linked to the
Display module, the display screen will show any unavailable inputs as N/A. If a
Display Type is selected which has fewer parameters than are linked to the
module, the Display module will only display the Display Type number, and will
break any links to parameters that it cannot display.
For example, if you have a display screen with four parameters, and you select a
Display Type of One Parameter, the first parameter is displayed and the other three
links to the ION Display module are severed.
Display Options Module
The Display Options module controls data display settings such as backlight
timeout, automatic display scrolling, parameter update rate, and display mode.
Settings in the Display Options modules are global, and affect all of the front panel
display screens. Refer to “Display Configuration” on page 50 for the Display

To learn more about the ION modules in your meter, refer to the ION Device
Templates at www.pwrm.com. ION Device Templates list all of the ION modules
available in the current version of your meter, and the total number of each
module. ION Device Templates also show the ranges or options available for each
module’s setup registers.
Basic Setup
Basic configuration of the meter is provided by the Power Meter module. The
Power Meter module is the main connection between the power system
measurements and all other ION modules in the device. This module reports the
values for all voltage, current and power measurements.
The Power Meter module’s setup registers describe details of the power system
being monitored. Many of the Power Meter module’s setup registers are
configured when the meter is initially put into service, although the device will not
operate properly until Volts mode and PT and CT ratios are set. Some registers
may need to be changed to refine the device’s operation.
The functions of the setup registers in the Power Meter module are as follows:

The registers are typically set when the device is commissioned. Changing the values of these registers
while the device is in service is not recommended.
Once basic setup is performed (i.e. the PT/CT and Volts Mode settings), the meter
operates properly. Typically there is no need to make further changes to the Power
Meter module’s setup registers.

Communications Setup
Communications Setup
Communication settings are typically configured when the ACCESS meter is
initially put into service. Each communications port on a meter is controlled by a
single Communications module. The modules’ setup registers define the
parameters used for each port, so parameters do vary according to the type of
communications channel selected (i.e. RS-232, RS-485, Modem, Infrared, Ethernet).

Modem Initialization String
The setup register labeled ModemInit is available for 9330 and 9350 meters with
internal modems, and defines the initialization string for the internal modem (by
default, the modem is factory configured to answer on one ring). You should not
require changes to the ModemInit string for normal operation. If you require
advanced modem functionality, you can customize the ModemInit register with a
string up to 47 characters long.
CAUTION
The ModemInit string is automatically sent to the internal modem when the ModemInit setup register is
changed, when the meter is powered up, or when the baud rate of the modem’s Communications
module is changed.
Communications Protocols
By default, all COM ports are configured to use the ACCESS protocol. If you want
to make use of Modbus RTU, DNP 3.00, or GPS configurations, you need to
configure Protocol setup register the Communications module that controls the
port you want to use.
NOTE
The Factory Protocol is reserved for the use by Siemens Customer Service.
Power Quality Setup (9350)
For the 9350 meter, power quality parameters can be set up using the Sag/Swell
module. The Sag/Swell module monitors applicable phase voltages for temporary
undervoltages and overvoltages (i.e. CBEMA Type 2 and Type 3 disturbances).
Once a disturbance is detected, magnitude and duration data is captured by the
Sag/Swell module, and is passed to a data recording framework.

The primary power system voltage is sometimes different than the PT Primary setup register value; i.e.
when the PT Primary is used to indicate winding ratio rather than
primary voltage.
Nom Volts must be set to enable Power Quality functions. Most applications are
served by the default values entered into the module’s registers, but if you want to
fine-tune Sag/Swell detection, try adjusting the Swell Lim and Sag Lim values.
NOTE
If the Sag/Swell module’s Nom Volts setup register is set to zero, all Power Quality functions of the 9350
meter are disabled. That is why Nom Volts is typically set when the meter is put into service. If Nom Volts
has not been set, enter a value for your power system’s nominal voltage (for example, 120, 277 or 347).
Data Logging Setup
The data recording frameworks contain Data Recorder modules, Waveform
Recorder modules, and Periodic Timer modules. Data Recorder and Waveform
Recorder modules are responsible for logging the power system data. The Periodic
Timer modules control the recording frequency of the recorder modules to which
they are linked.

Procedures for changing the logging depth and the frequency of logging are
discussed in the following sections: “Changing the Frequency of Logging” on
page 47 and “Changing the Log Depths” on page 47.
Default Logging Configuration
The standard configuration of the meter includes data recorders that log various
power system data such as energy and demand, or the average power system
quantity used over a period of time (Historic Mean Log). The 9350 also logs sags
and swells in voltage.
Revenue Logging
For the revenue meter option, Data Recorder #1 is locked, so channels must be
specified prior to the meter being sealed. Refer to RMICAN Ordering Sheet on our
website for your particular meter.
For compatibility with the UTS MV-90 billing software, Data Recorder #1 must be
configured as a 16-channel recorder.
Historical Data Logging
One Data Recorder module, the Historic Mean Log, logs the following output
register values by default:
Hist Mean Log
Vll avg mean

WinPM.Net Reporting
One recorder is configured to provide power system data for the Reporter
software. This recorder is labeled Egy Dmd Log. If any input links to this module
are changed, Reporter will not be able to create reports from the device’s logs. If
you use the Reporter software, do not change the parameters that are logged in the
Egy Dmd Log.

Changing the Frequency of Logging
The two Periodic Timer modules that control the frequency of different data
recording are as follows:
“EgyDmd Log” Trg controls the frequency of logging for the Energy and
Demand Log (this log is used for generating reports using Reporter).
“Hist Log Trg” controls the frequency of Historic Data logging.
Change the value in the Period setup register to change the frequency of data
logging (Period values are specified in seconds). Do not change the Sync Mode
setup register.
Changing the Log Depths
Change the value in the Depth setup register to increase the number of records
stored in the recorder. The RecordMode setup register controls how the Data
Recorder will overwrite old records; refer to the Data Recorder module description
in the online ION Programmer’s Reference before changing this setup register.
Changing Waveform Recording
The Waveform Recorder modules do not require changes to their default settings.
If you want to change the format of the recorded waveforms, refer to the
Waveform Recorder module description in the online ION Programmer’s Reference.
Changing the Parameters that are Logged
The meter’s factory configuration logs a comprehensive set of energy, power and
harmonics parameters. You cannot change which parameters are logged by
configuring a setup register. Adding or deleting a log’s parameters is an advanced
procedure, as it requires changes to the links between modules.
The software “Using Designer software” section of Using WinPM.Net describes
adding and deleting links between modules. Once you are comfortable editing
module links, change logged parameters by linking the output registers you want
logged to the inputs of an ION Data Recorder module.

Meter Clock Configuration
Fine Tuning Over Condition Monitoring
If you want to fine-tune over condition monitoring, the only setup registers you
should change are SusUntlON and SusUntlOFF.
SusUntlON determines how long the modules wait after an over condition is
detected before reporting it. This gives the monitored value a short period to
correct itself before the event is registered with the module, so that very brief over
conditions are ignored. Similarly, SusUntlOFF is the amount of time a normal
value must be present before the module considers normal operation to be
restored. Both SusUntlON and SusUntlOFF values are entered in seconds (the
default value for both is 30 seconds).
Refer to the online ION Programmer’s Reference for more information about the
Relative Setpoint module.
Meter Clock Configuration
The Clock module controls the meter’s internal clock which provides timestamps
for data logged by the device. The clock needs to be configured properly to ensure
that logged data has accurate timestamp information. The Clock module also
receives the time synchronization signals sent to it by the workstation running
ION software, updating the device’s clock when required.
The setup registers in the Clock module specify timezone and Daylight Savings
Time (DST) parameters and time synchronization functions.

Demand Setup
9300 Series User’s Guide
Demand Setup
The demand modules (both Thermal Demand modules and Sliding Window
Demand modules) are configured to calculate the average current demand and
kW, kVAR and kVA demand. The setup registers in the demand modules define
time intervals for demand calculations, setting the sensitivity of the module’s
operation.
Sliding Window Demand Module Settings
Sliding Window Demand is often referred to as Rolling Block Demand. To
compute sliding window demand values, the Sliding Window Demand module
uses the sliding window averaging (or rolling interval) technique which divides
the demand interval into sub-intervals. The demand is measured electronically
based on the average load level over the most recent set of sub-intervals. This
method offers better response time than fixed interval methods.

Thermal Demand Module Settings
The Thermal Demand module calculates thermal demand over a specified length
of time. It uses a method which is equivalent to thermal averaging. For thermal
averaging, the traditional demand indicator responds to heating of a thermal
element in a Watt-Hour meter. You can adjust the Thermal Demand module's
calculation to mimic this technique by changing the Time Const and Interval setup
parameters.

Third Party Protocols
9300 Series User’s Guide
Third Party Protocols
Modbus and DNP modules are factory configured and do not require basic
configuration changes. Changing the factory configuration is an advanced setup
procedure that requires an understanding of the protocol, as well as an
understanding of the meter’s internal operation.
Refer to the technical notes DNP 3.0 and ION Technology and Modbus and ION
Technology for the appropriate list of protocol parameters available.
NOTE
The meter can also be configured to receive data through Modbus or DNP 3.0, though there is no factoryconfigured framework for receiving data through these protocols. An 9300 Series meter can receive data
if the meter writes to hard-coded registers.
For details on configuring your network for receiving data via Modbus or DNP 3.0, refer to the DNP Slave
Import module descriptions in ION Programmer’s Reference and the 9300 Series Modbus protocol
documents, as well as the technical notes DNP 3.0 and ION Technology and Modbus and ION
Technology.
Communications Protocol Configuration
In order to use the factory Modbus or DNP configuration you must first configure
the communications channel you want to use. By default all communications ports
are configured to use the ACCESS protocol. Choose the 3rd-party protocol you
want from the list of available protocols in the Communications module’s Protocol
setup register.
NOTE
Modbus RTU is available on each of the meter’s communications ports, and multiple ports can
communicate using Modbus simultaneously. Only a single port can use the DNP 3.00 protocol at any
one time.
The meter is factory configured to provide advanced interoperability support. The
meter is readily incorporated into third party power monitoring systems. This
section describes how to communicate with the meter via Modbus RTU, Profibus,
and DNP 3.0 protocols.
Using the Modbus RTU Protocol
The meter can make any real-time data available through the Modbus RTU
protocol. Modbus Master devices connected to the 9300 can access this data.
Modbus Master devices can also write data into 9300’s module registers, making
device configuration changes or initializing control actions.

Chapter 3 - Default Meter Functionality
9300 Series User’s Guide
Using the Modbus RTU Protocol
Factory Modbus Configuration for the 9300 Series Meter
The 9300 Series meter makes data available to Modbus devices using four Modbus
Slave modules. These modules are linked to other modules in the meter that
provide energy, power and demand data. Once a communications channel is
configured to use Modbus RTU protocol (refer to “Communications Setup” in
Chapter 3), the data is available to Modbus Master devices.

As the data available through the Modbus Slave modules is in a specific format,
knowledge of the Modbus protocol and an understanding of the settings used in
the meter are required to interpret the data provided.
Changing the Modbus Configuration
If the factory Modbus configuration does not suit your needs, the existing Modbus
Slave modules can be relinked to other parameters that you want to access through
Modbus. There are ten Modbus Slave modules available in the 9300 Series meter,
so you can create more modules to make other parameters available to Modbus
Master devices.
If your Modbus Master device requires data in a format different than that
provided by the factory Modbus configuration, you can edit the setup registers in
the Modbus Slave modules. These setup registers specify the Modbus format,
scaling and base address settings. Refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference for
complete details on Modbus Slave module functionality.
NOTE
Refer to the Modbus 7300 Series protocol document for complete details on the Modbus implementation
in the 9300 Series of meters.
Modbus Slave Module Settings
The settings in the Modbus Slave module setup registers are shown in the tables
below. Refer to the Modbus Slave module description in the ION Programmer’s

Importing Data using Modbus RTU
It is possible to bring data into the 9300 Series meter using Modbus. Various ION
registers can be written by Modbus Master devices by correlating the Modbus
register number with the address of the ION register you want to write. When a
Modbus register is written with a value, the corresponding ION register will be
written, provided the Modbus RTU protocol is active on the communications
channel that connects the Modbus Master to the 9300 Series meter.
Page 58
Chapter 3 - Default Meter Functionality
9300 Series User’s Guide
Using the Modbus/TCP Protocol
You can use the Modbus RTU protocol to write values into ION external numeric,
pulse and Boolean modules, allowing you to enable, disable and reset meter
functions. You can also use Modbus to change setup register values in various ION
modules to configure the meter’s operation.
All of the information required to write to ION registers through Modbus is
available in 9300 & 9330 Modicon Modbus Protocol, available on the Technical
Documentation CD, or by request from Siemens.
Using the Modbus/TCP Protocol
Modbus/TCP is the newest open Modbus protocol variant (formerly called
MBAP). It defines the packet structure and connection port (port 502) for the
industry standard TCP/IP protocol. The structure of Modbus/TCP is very similar
to the Modbus RTU packet except that it has an extra six-byte header and does not
use the cyclic redundancy check (CRC). Some of the newest ION firmware now
supports Modbus/TCP for direct communications with the meter.
Modbus/TCP retains the Modbus RTU limit of 256 bytes to a packet. It is suggested
that higher through-put is possible if this limitation is removed. This variant is
called Enhanced Modbus/TCP but, so far, few devices have moved to support it.
Another variant, that has yet to gain popularity, is from the Semiconductor
Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) trade association. The Generic
Sensor-Bus Sub-Committee created the Sensor/Actuator Network Standard (SEMI
E54-0997).
Modbus TCP Communications
You can now communicate to the meter via Modicon® Modbus TCP (formerly
called MBAP). Your meter must have the optional Ethernet port.
Connect to socket 502.

Using the DNP 3.0 Protocol
9300 Series User’s Guide
Using the DNP 3.0 Protocol
The Distributed Network Protocol Version 3.00 (DNP 3.0) is an open protocol used
in the electric utility industry for communications and interoperability among
substation computers, RTUs, IEDs, and Master Stations. The 9300 can be
integrated into a DNP network using the DNP Slave Import, Export and Options
modules.
NOTE
Complete DNP documentation is available through the DNP User’s Group (on the web at www.dnp.org).
This documentation describes DNP 3.0 Transport Functions, the Application Layer Protocol, the Data
Object Library, Data Link Layer Protocol Description, and the Subset Definitions.
Factory DNP 3.0 Configuration for the 9330 and 9350
The meter’s factory configuration makes various parameters available through
DNP 3.0. There is no factory-configured functionality for importing DNP 3.0 data
into the meter. ION modules are linked to DNP Slave Export modules which
convert the ION data into the appropriate DNP objects. These objects are available
through the meter’s communications port that is configured to use the DNP 3.0
protocol. The DNP Options module sets global options for all of the DNP Slave
Export modules.

Changing the DNP Configuration
If the factory DNP configuration does not suit your needs, the existing DNP Slave
Export modules can be relinked to other parameters that you want to access
through DNP. Alternately you can add additional DNP Slave Export modules and
link the desired ION parameters to them. There are 16 DNP Slave Export modules
available on the 9330 and 9350; of these, 14 are used by the factory configuration.
NOTE
Only one port per 9330 or 9350 can be used with DNP 3.0.
Page 60
Chapter 3 - Default Meter Functionality
9300 Series User’s Guide
Using the DNP 3.0 Protocol
If your DNP network requires data in a format different than that provided by the
factory DNP configuration, you can edit the setup registers in the DNP Slave
Export modules and the DNP Options module. Do not make any changes to the
DNP Options module’s setup registers unless you understand the effects each
change will cause. Refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference for complete details on
DNP Slave Export and DNP Slave Options module function.
As DNP 3.0 is a very complex protocol, an in-depth understanding of DNP 3.0 is
required to interpret the settings in the DNP Options module and the DNP Slave
Export modules. It is beyond the scope of this meter’s User’s Guide to describe
DNP; consult the DNP User’s Group or other resources to learn more about the
protocol.
DNP Slave Export Module Settings
The 14 factory-configured DNP Slave Export modules are configured as shown in
the following table.

Some setup register settings vary for different modules. Specifically, BasePoint
differs for each module within a group (Analog Input and Binary Counter are
groups), and StaticObj is set to Analog Input for the 11 analog input points and
Binary Counter for the three binary counter points. (StatObj defines the type of
DNP object the module provides when the Master polls it.)
In addition, Scaling is OFF for all but two modules. The only modules that apply
scaling are the Analog Input points that provide Voltage and Current Unbalance
data (labeled Unbalx10) and Frequency data (Labeled Freqx10). These modules
apply x10 scaling.

Using the Profibus Protocol
Using the Profibus Protocol
Those 9300 meters ordered with the optional Profibus port are suitable to provide
many real-time power system measurements to a Profibus network. Profibus
Master devices connected to the 9300-Profibus can access this data. Refer to the
9300 & 9330 Profibus Protocol Document for complete details on the Profibus
implementation in the 9300.
Factory Profibus Configuration for the 9300
The 9300-Profibus makes data available to Profibus devices using 12 Profibus
Slave Export modules. These modules are linked to other modules in the 9300 that
provide energy, power and demand data through the Profibus Commun-ications
module. As the data available through the Profibus Slave Export modules is in a
specific format, knowledge of the Profibus protocol and an understanding of the
settings used in the 9300 are required to interpret the data provided.
Changing the Profibus Configuration
If the factory Profibus configuration does not suit your needs, link the unused
parameters in the existing Profibus Slave Export modules. If you require more
changes, you will have to relink these modules to other parameters.
Profibus Slave Export Module Parameter Mapping
The following tables detail the measurements provided by 12 Profibus modules.
The “Source ION Module” is shown so that you can easily unlink parameters if
you want to access different data. To change scaling refer to the Profibus Slave
Export module description in the ION Programmer’s Reference.

Restoring the Factory Configuration
9300 Series User’s Guide
Restoring the Factory Configuration
If you have made changes to the default functionality and want to return to the
factory configuration, you can e-initialize the factory configuration in the meter
through Designer. The basic setup of the device can be retained, so the meter does
not need to be taken out of service for a long period of time.
NOTE
If you restore the factory configuration, all custom features you created are lost.
To restore the factory configuration:
1.
Display the meter’s main Configuration screen in Designer.
2.
Choose Select All from the Edit menu, then press Delete on your keyboard.
The confirmation dialog box appears explaining that some modules will not be
deleted (core modules cannot be deleted — scroll down in the dialog to see that
various standard modules will be deleted).
3.
Click OK on the confirmation dialog box.
After a brief wait the modules are deleted, and the main meter Configuration
screen is blank except for the Frameworks folder in the Advanced Setup area.
(The Frameworks folder contains the folder of Core modules which cannot be
deleted.)
4.
Choose Select All from the Edit menu to select the Frameworks folder. This
selects all subfolders and modules within the folder.
5.
Choose Paste from Framework in the Edit menu, and select the appropriate .fwn
file from the folder \WinPM.Net\config\fmwk\nd\ and click OK.
Ensure that the chosen .fwn file includes the following in the filename:
The model name of the meter you are restoring (i.e. 7300, 7330 or 7350)
The base firmware version (e.g. v250, v265, etc.)
For example, if you are restoring an 9300 with a V252 firmware version, you
could select the file “7300_v250_FAC-4WYE_V2.1.0.0.0.fwn”. Although this file
was designed for V250, the framework is also used for V252, because v250 is the
base firmware version upon which v252 is built. (For details about framework
files, contact Customer Service.)
6.
Click Open. The Paste Summary window appears.
7.
Click on the first module, scroll down to the last module, hold the Shift key and
click on the last module. This selects all of the modules.
8.
While holding the Shift key, click on the check box to the left of the module name
so you see a lock icon with a green checkmark.
9.
Check “Maintain external inputs” and click OK on the confirmation dialog box.
A message appears indicating that Designer is pasting modules. All modules are
selected when the paste is complete. Click anywhere in the background of the
node diagram to deselect all of the modules.

Using ACCESS Software
ACCESS software encompasses a variety of programs that enhance the
functionality and usability of your ACCESS devices. ACCESS software can collect
data via serial, wireless, modem, or Ethernet links, so you can manage a single site
or global network of devices. WinPM.Net is a software suit with applications for
displaying data, configuring ACCESS meters, and much more. ION Setup is a
stand-alone program that greatly simplifies meter configuration.
This chapter recognizes the various ACCESS software programs available to you,
providing instructions on each program’s use. Details on where to find more in
depth information on a program’s operation are included in that program’s

WinPM.Net Software
9300 Series User’s Guide
WinPM.Net Software
WinPM.Net software offers control capabilities and comprehensive power quality
and reliability analysis. It is a powerful software suite that can process, analyze,
store, and share data across your entire enterprise. The fully networked clientserver information system allows you to access data from any workstation, locally
or around the world, in the format you need. With WinPM.Net you can manage an
intelligent ACCESS metering network, monitoring and controlling individual
devices, analyzing data, and deciding on new courses of action.
WinPM.Net software has four main components, each with their own user
interfaces. These applications are the Management Console, Vista, Designer, and
Reporter.
If you require more information on WinPM.Net software than is presented here,
refer to the online WinPM.Net Help or the WinPM.Net Getting Started Guide.
Software Security
The software security system limits how you can use ACCESS software to view
meter data and send configuration changes to ACCESS meters. A valid user
account and password are required to log on to any ACCESS software application.
Each access level, or authority, that is specified for a user account defines the types
of operations available in each application, so you may not necessarily be allowed
to view or configure meter information if your authority is too low.
WinPM.Net provides two default software security settings: guest and supervisor.
Both of these default security settings use 0 (zero) for the password, and enable the
highest level of authority which allows complete control of the system.
NOTE
Since both the software and the meter use password security, you may need to enter the software
password, meter password, or both depending on the function you are performing.

WinPM.Net: Management Console
The Management Console is responsible for building your network. You build
your power-monitoring network to reflect the way your physical communications
network is wired so that WinPM.Net software can communicate with your
devices. The network is created using servers, sites, devices, and modems. These
network components must be configured in the Management Console before you
can use the other WinPM.Net applications.

The following is a brief description of each network component. To learn how to
configure these components, refer to the “Configuring Communications” section
of this chapter.
Servers
A server is a computer in an WinPM.Net system running administrative software
that controls access to the network and its resources, such as ION devices, and
provides resources to computers functioning as workstations on the network. A
server runs service components that create communication and software links
between ACCESS systems components, and it creates links into the ACCESS
database, too.
Computers with primary and secondary WinPM.Net installations are servers, as
they have the communication software (services) installed. A primary server
contains all software components and the database; a secondary server contains
software but references the primary server for program files and database
information. Both server types connect directly to ACCESS devices via serial,
Ethernet, or modem links, but there can be only one primary server on a network.
When you install WinPM.Net, the Primary Server must be installed before any
Secondary server or Client computers.

Sites
A site in an WinPM.Net system contains one or more intelligent devices that share a
common communications link. There are three different types of sites, based on the
type of communications medium each uses. The site types are as follows:
Direct (Serial) Site - a direct-connected RS-232 or RS-485 network
Modem Site - a remote serial site connected by a modem
Ethernet Gateway Site - a gateway that transfers data between an Ethernet
device and an RS-485 chain of connected devices
NOTE
You are not required to create a site for an Ethernet Device, unless you intend to use the device as an
Ethernet Gateway Site.
Depending on the site type, devices belonging to a site may be at different physical
locations.
Devices
Devices refer to intelligent devices (basic energy meters, multi-function
monitoring/analysis/control devices, intelligent relays, etc.) that can be connected
to an WinPM.Net network serially, via Ethernet, or through a gateway.
Serial Devices belong to Direct Sites or Modem Sites, so they communicate using
modem, RS-232, or RS-485 connections. Before these types of devices can be added
to the network, they require the prior configuration of a Direct Site or Modem Site.
Ethernet Devices are those that are directly connected to an Ethernet network. You
are not required to create a site for an Ethernet Device, unless you intend to use the
device as an Ethernet Gateway Site. Furthermore, you can manually connect and
disconnect your Ethernet Devices from the Management Console.
Dialout Modems
A Dialout Modem is the modem that a server computer uses to communicate with
a remote modem at a Modem Site.
Connection Schedules
Connection schedules are programmed routines for a server to regularly connect
to and disconnect from Modem Sites and their associated ACCESS (or other)
devices. If so desired, you can also create connection schedules from Direct Sites
and Ethernet Devices/Ethernet Gateway Sites.

Configuring Communications
Configuring Communications
Before you can talk to the devices on your network, you need to configure
communications within the Management Console. Essentially, this means adding
one or more sites and then adding the devices associated with each site. If you
create a modem site, then you also need to add and configure a dialout modem.
There may be instances where you want to add a new server (either another
computer or third-party gateway); the computer running the WinPM.Net software
is considered a server and is listed in the Server section.
Adding a new Server, Site, Device or Dialout Modem
1.
Click the appropriate network component icon (Servers, Sites, Devices,
Dialout Modems) in the System Setup pane. The title bar reflects your
selection.
2.
Right-click in the display window, select New and the type of Server, Site,
Device. If you are configuring a modem you only have one New option.
3.
Configure the item using the drop-down list boxes and manually entering
values where required.
4.
Right click in the Properties dialog box to access Advanced Properties. You can
use the drop-down list boxes or manually enter new values as required.
5.
Click OK when you are done.
The process of adding network components to the Management Console is the
same for each component — the difference lies in how you configure the
components. When the Properties dialog appears for the component you added,
the fields for which you are required to provide information are highlighted in red.
For example, the illustration below shows the required fields when adding a new
Ethernet device:
Although Group has
a drop down list box,
you are not restricted
to the values in the
list. If you want to
create a new group,
simply type its name
in the value field.
Other drop down list
boxes restrict you to
the values in the list.
The Properties dialog has different required fields depending on which component
you are adding:
For a Direct Site you specify the serial port (COM1, COM2, etc.) on the server
computer where the serial device (or network of serial devices) is connected.
You must specify the server computer that communicates with the direct site.
For a Modem Site you provide information about the modem at the (remote)
modem site: baud rate, modem telephone number, etc. You also specify the
server computer that communicates with the modem site.
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software

Configuring Communications
9300 Series User’s Guide
For an Ethernet Gateway Site, you specify the Ethernet device acting as the
gateway and the TCP/IP port to which the serial device, or network of serial
devices, is connected. Before you can add an Ethernet Gateway Site, an Ethernet
Device must be added and configured first.
For a Serial Device you provide the device type, the unit ID, and the site to
which the meter is connected. Before you can add serial devices, a Serial or
Modem Site must be added and configured first.
For an Ethernet Device you specify the type of meter, the meter’s IP address,
and the server computer that communicates with the Ethernet device.
For a Dialout Modem, you provide the modem type, the computer that
communicates over the modem channel, and the serial port used on the
computer.
For a Computer (Server) you specify the machine’s computer name.
For a 3rd-Party Gateway (Server), you specify the name of the network host, the
IP address of the gateway device, and the computer that communicates through
the Ethernet gate

Customizing the Vista Interface
Customizing the Vista Interface
Standard Vista diagrams show much of the data that the factory-configured meter
measures and calculates. However, the factory-configured meter can provide
additional data that is not presented by default with these display tools. This data
can be added to the standard Vista diagrams by placing addition diagram objects
on them; or, you can create new user diagrams to display any additional data you
want.
Vista cannot be used to customize data displays on the ACCESS meters
themselves.
NOTE
Level 5 ACCESS software authority (Supervisor) is required to create and configure new Vista diagrams.
If you do not have Level 5 password authority, contact your ACCESS software administrator for assistance.
Diagram Objects in a User Diagram
Diagram objects provide the interface to ION registers in your network, and to
DDE values from other applications. Each diagram object displays a single piece
of information from somewhere in your power-monitoring network; for example,
a single numeric object displays numeric data from a single source.
If your account has permission to edit user diagrams, the following diagram
objects are represented by icons in a floating toolbox.
If this toolbox is not available in Vista, yet you have the proper permissions to edit
user diagrams, you must select Options > Show Toolbox from the Vista menu. A
check mark next to the option indicates that it has been selected.
To place a diagram object, simply click, drag and drop the object you want from
the toolbox onto the current Vista display window. Once you have added the
diagram object, right-click the icon to specify the actions you want it to perform.

WinPM.Net: Designer
WinPM.Net: Designer
Designer is an application for advanced users who know the nature of ION
architecture, specifically the nature of frameworks. A framework is a number of
ION modules arranged (linked) to perform a specific function or number of
functions. Designer allows you to customize current frameworks by adding,
deleting, or re-linking ION modules, and it allows you to create entirely new
frameworks. Although it can be used to perform basic setup, such as changing an
ION module’s setup register, it is recommended that you only use Designer for
framework customization and creation.
NOTE
In most cases, you will be able to achieve the functionality you want by changing the settings in an existing
module’s setup registers. For this operation it is recommended that you use ION Setup.
Basics of ION Architecture
Before you begin altering the meter’s operation, it is advisable to familiarize
yourself with the basics of how the device operates. Understanding the basics of
the ION architecture will help you understand how to make different types of
configuration changes.
The ION architecture applies the principles of object-oriented software design to
the creation of functionality inside your devices. The object-oriented structure
allows you to connect different discrete objects (called ION modules) in different
ways to define how information is accessed, transferred, and manipulated inside
the device and across the power monitoring network.
Each ACCESS device contains a number of ION modules that perform specific
functions. The ION modules are linked together to create frameworks or
framework templates, defining multiple operations and logical pathways for
power system information. The basic structure of an ION module is the same for
each module type, making it easy to use new features once the basics are
understood.
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software
Page 83
Basics of ION Architecture
9300 Series User’s Guide
ION Modules
The ION module is the basic building block of the ACCESS device’s operating
software. A module can be considered as a “function box”: it receives data from its
inputs, makes decisions based on the settings in its setup registers, and then makes
data available at its output registers. All functionality provided by an ACCESS
device can be considered in terms of its modules and the linkages between them.

registers of other modules;

module’s operation–
this data is available to
other ION modules.
SETUP REGISTERS

processes data
Modules are linked together to create powerful functions. For example, the
framework below consists of four modules that, when combined, trigger a
waveform recording in response to an over-voltage condition.

a specified period then

and stored in the log file
Module Linking Restrictions
The maximum number of modules that can be linked in a row is 25. This is referred
to as the framework’s depth. Modules that branch off or branch into the chain do
not affect the depth, and there is no restriction on the number of branches you can
have in a framework.
Another restriction concerns “circular” linking of modules. You cannot link a
module’s output register to its own input or to the input of any module that
precedes it in the chain. This protects you from creating infinite loops that can
waste system resources.
The one exception to this rule is the Feedback module, which makes circular
linkages possible (refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference).
Page 84
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software
9300 Series User’s Guide
Basics of ION Architecture
Sequence of ION Module Execution
ION modules always execute in the order of the data flow (in the example below,
from 1 to 4). This logical execution order is maintained even if you created the
framework from back to front.
1
1
3
4
2
ION modules may execute simultaneously if they do not depend on each other for
data (such as both ION modules labelled 1). Conversely, ION module 3 will not
execute until both ION modules 1 and ION module 2 have executed.
ION Registers
Each module has one or more output registers, and most modules have Setup
registers. (A module’s inputs are links to the output registers on other modules.)
There are different types of registers, each classified by the type of data they accept.
When you want to change a module’s configuration, you must supply the type of
data that is appropriate for the register you are configuring. The configuration
tools prevent you from entering the wrong type of data into a register, but they do
not prevent you from entering the wrong value.
The ‘NOT AVAILABLE’ Value
An ION module that requires a link to one or more of its inputs, but has no such
links created, does not contain any values in its output registers. Instead, its output
registers are set to NOT AVAILABLE. In addition, if a module has an input that is
invalid (for example, a line-to-neutral measurement for a 3-wire Delta system) its
output register is also set to NOT AVAILABLE. The NOT AVAILABLE value helps to
distinguish between cases where a register contains a value like 0 or OFF, and cases
where there is actually no value stored.
NOTE
The NOT AVAILABLE value appears in Vista objects that are linked to ION modules with output registers
that are NOT AVAILABLE. The front panel of the meter displays values that are NOT AVAILABLE as dashes (–).
If the inputs of a module are NOT AVAILABLE, its output registers are also NOT
AVAILABLE. The NOT AVAILABLE value propagates through all linked modules.
(The NOT AVAILABLE value propagates through linked Arithmetic modules
differently - refer to the ION Arithmetic module description in the ION
Programmer’s Reference.)

ION Configuration Changes and Module Security
When you make configuration changes to an ACCESS device you are either
changing a value in a module’s setup register (basic configuration) or you are
changing the linkage between two or more modules (advanced customization).
Certain parts of the meter’s operating software are protected against deletion and
tampering, specifically core ION modules, fixed module links, persistent ION
modules, and locked ION modules. Visit Power Measurement’s web site
(www.pwrm.com) for a complete listing of these module types for your meter.
Core Modules
Core ION modules are fundamental to basic device or software node operation.
You cannot create or delete core modules, and in some cases, you cannot configure
them. Those ION modules classed as Core modules are the same in every device
or software node, though not all devices and software nodes support all the Core
modules. The following are examples of Core Modules: Power Meter module,
Communications module, Display Options module, and the Factory Module.
Fixed Module Links
Several of the linkages between core modules are fixed; they are required for the
basic operation of the device. A fixed link cannot be removed. A core module with
fixed links can still be linked to other modules.
Persistent Modules
Persistent ION modules are similar to Core modules, as they are core to the
operation of the device and cannot be created or deleted. These ION modules are
protected, because they are factory-configured to provide important external
control functions. Many External Pulse modules are Persistent ION modules.
CAUTION
Persistent modules can be overwritten in Designer. When pasting a default framework onto a meter, use
lock-paste on the Persistent modules. Do not free-paste. A list of Persistent modules is available on the
Library page of Siemens's web site, under "ION Device Templates".
Locked Modules
Locked modules provide security for revenue meters. This type of module security
only applies to ACCESS meters with the revenue-lock enabled (RM) order option.
Furthermore, there are varying degrees to locked module security: Fully Locked,
Writable Locked, and Front Panel Locked. Fully Locked security is designed to
protect the revenue related functions within the meter; they cannot be modified in
any way. (Fully Locked modules have their values written via internal meter
methods, as the meter makes calculations based on its voltage and current inputs.)
Writable Locked security allows you to trigger or change the state of the ION
module, but you cannot delete it, link to it, or change its label. Front Panel Locked
security prevents registers from being altered remotely via software; you must use
the ACCESS meter’s front panel to make any modifications to these registers.
NOTE
Depending on the meter family, there may be different types of module security. Rev_write_state_lookup
means the module cannot be modified in any way, and Rev_destroy_lookup means the module cannot
be deleted.

Complete details about the Setup registers of every ION module are provided in
the ION Programmer’s Reference. Details about the Setup Areas on the main screen
of the node diagram can be found in the Default Functionality chapter.
Customizing Frameworks in Designer
To create custom functions, ION modules are linked together and then configured.
Linking ION modules is relatively straightforward: output registers on one
module are linked to the input registers of subsequent modules. Data flows from
the output register on the first module to the input registers on a second module.
Each module that receives data makes decisions and processes the data based on
its setup registers’ settings. Once the data has been processed, a module makes the
data available at its output registers. These output registers can then be linked to
the inputs of other modules, and so on.
Most ION modules perform simple, discrete functions. The combination of
modules linked together creates a more powerful functionality. Multiple modules
linked together can be referred to as a framework. Since a device’s operation can
be separated into the specific, smaller functions performed by the modules,
creating specialized functionality is simple if you understand the operation of the
component pieces.
CAUTION
The meter is factory-configured for optimal operation. You should not make any changes to its operating
software unless you are familiar with the ION architecture, you know specifically what you want to
accomplish, and you understand the effects of the changes you intend to make.
If you need to customize your meter’s operation, you will need to create new ION
modules, configure their settings, and in some cases link them to other modules.
Designer provides a graphical view of your meter’s internal operation, making
these tasks simple. If you require more information on Designer than is presented
in these pages, refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference or online WinPM.Net Help
for complete usage details.

Customizing Frameworks in Designer
Creating New Modules
To add a module, locate its icon in the Designer toolbox, press and hold the left
mouse button over the icon, and drag it onto the node diagram. Once you release
the mouse button, the module becomes part of the diagram and is ready to be
configured and linked.
Choosing the Module
The Designer toolbox displays icons for all the meter’s available module types. If
the toolbox is not displayed, choose Show Toolbox from the Options menu to make
it appear.
As you drag the mouse over the icons in the toolbox, the status bar at the bottom
of the Designer window displays the module type.
Each ION module available to a
meter appears in the toolbox.
Creating the Module
Follow these steps to create an ION module in the meter:
1.
On the ION Modules toolbox, press the mouse button down on top of the icon
of the module you want to create, and drag it onto the node diagram. As you
drag the icon, the cursor changes shape to indicate you are placing an object.
2.
Release the mouse button to place the module in the diagram. When you release
the mouse button, Designer places a pending module icon into the diagram
(pending modules appear with a dashed outline).
3.
Once you have configured the node to your liking, choose Send & Save from the
File menu to download the configuration to the node. The dashed outline is
replaced with a solid outline, indicating that your changes have been saved.
After a Send & Save, ION modules that are offline (or inactive) appear with a red
border. This can mean that the ION module’s setup is incomplete. Refer to the
online WinPM.Net Help for more details.
The web site has information about the setup register defaults a module contains
when it is initially created, as well as the ranges or options each setup register
supports.
Deleting Modules
To delete a module, select it by clicking its icon, then press the Delete key. Use
caution when deleting modules – any dependant modules will be affected.
Designer informs you of dependant modules if they exist on the same node.
Linking Modules
Module linking involves clicking on one module’s output register symbol,
choosing the output register you want to link, then clicking the input of a second
module and selecting the input to link to. This operation can be performed in
reverse – you can start with one module’s input and link to another module’s
output register if desired.
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software
Page 91
Customizing Frameworks in Designer
9300 Series User’s Guide
You can link modules that reside on different nodes, provided that you are linking
between software nodes, or from a meter to a software node. You cannot link
modules between meters. The following section describes how to link modules
that reside on the same node. Refer to the ION Programmer’s Reference or the online
WinPM.Net Help for instructions if you want to link modules that reside on
different nodes.
Follow the steps below to link modules on the meter:
1.
Accessing module outputs
Click on the
symbol on the right side of the module icon to list a module’s
output registers. (To list the module’s setup registers, hold the CTRL key while
clicking on the
symbol.) In most cases, a pop-up menu appears and lists
the available registers. If the module has many registers, a dialog box appears
instead.
or
The cursor looks like this when
a linking operation is in
progress:
2.
Click on the register you want to select. In the case of the dialog box, double-click
on an output register, or choose the register and click Select.
3.
Drag the cursor towards the module to which you want to link; the cursor
changes and a dotted line follows it across the node diagram. This indicates you
are in the process of creating a link. The dotted line also shows where the
connecting line will appear in the node diagram once the link is made.
If you link to a module that is in a different window than the original module
(either in a different node diagram or grouping window), the dotted line
disappears, but the cursor still indicates that a link is in progress.
4.
Accessing module inputs
Click on the module icon’s left
symbol to display the module’s inputs. In
most cases, a pop-up menu appears and lists the module’s inputs. (If there are a
large number of inputs, a dialog box similar to the More Output Registers dialog
box appears instead.) Inputs that are a different class than the selected output
register are grayed out to indicate that you cannot select them.
If the input is already linked, the register label it is linked to is displayed beside
the input. If you select the input, the existing link is overwritten.
5.
Choose the input you want from the pop-up or dialog box.
If the two modules are in the same window, the dotted line remains on the
screen to show the link between the modules.
6.
Page 92
Save the changes you made to the node. When you save the line changes from a
dotted line to a thin black line to indicate that the link is now programmed on
the node.
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software
9300 Series User’s Guide
Customizing Frameworks in Designer
The linking procedure described in the preceding steps can also be performed in
reverse order. You can select a module’s input first and then link it to another
module’s output register.
Editing Existing Frameworks
If you are comfortable with the ACCESS software and the meter’s configuration,
you can make changes to the existing frameworks to customize operation. Any
edits you make to the existing frameworks alter the device’s operation — be sure
you understand what effect your changes will have before proceeding.
Checking an Output Register’s “Owner”
Using Designer, right-click a module’s output register to view its linkages, referred
to as “owners”. A dialog box appears showing all of the inputs that are linked to
that output register. With this information you can determine what changes will
result to the framework by deleting the links to the parameter. Note that links to
inputs on other nodes are not shown in this dialog box.
CAUTION
Viewing owners by right-clicking a module's output register will only show you module linkages on the
same node. Any links to modules on different nodes will not be shown. If links to modules on other nodes
may exist, always check the links at a module’s inputs.
Deleting the Link at a Module’s Input
You can also check the links at a module’s input. Using Designer, right-click on the
input symbol on a module to view a dialog box listing each of the inputs and the
output registers they are linked to. You can unlink inputs from within this dialog
box as well.
Replacing a Link
You do not need to unlink a module’s input before linking a different output
register to it. If you link an output register to an input that is already linked, the
existing link is overwritten.

WinPM.Net: Reporter
9300 Series User’s Guide
WinPM.Net: Reporter
Reporter is a database reporting application. It lets you define, generate, and
manage comprehensive reports based on the data in your database. Reporter
retrieves data from the Relational Database Management System (RDBMS), and
processes it into a finished report in Microsoft Excel format. There are a number of
pre-configured reports available, including Power Quality, Load Profile, Energy
and Demand, and EN50160 reports. You can also generate custom reports that
incorporate virtually any data stored in the RDBMS and perform further analysis
using Excel’s advanced mathematical and graphical functions.
After you’ve designed custom reports and configured the Excel workbooks,
reports are updated automatically, either in response to a power system event, or
following a specified schedule. You can also configure reports to automatically
email selected recipients after updating.
NOTE
The Report View Manager, a component of the Reporter, can be used on its own to create custom
database views for use with other third party reporting packages. Advanced knowledge of database
operation may be required to use the Report View Manager with third-party applications. Refer to the
online WinPM.Net Help for details on the Report View Manager.
Pre-configured Reports
When you start Reporter, the main Reporter screen appears with a list of
pre-configured reports. The most commonly accessed reports are the Energy and
Demand report, the Load Profile report, and the Power Quality report. There are
also 2 reports related to the European EN50160 power quality standards.
Time of Use Schedule
used for Energy and
Demand reports.
This is not to be
confused with the
Time of Use Module
Page 94
Chapter 4 - Using ACCESS Software
9300 Series User’s Guide
Pre-configured Reports
Energy and Demand
This report is designed to generate and display details about energy consumption
and peak demand levels over a given time period. It uses a Time of Use Schedule
(TOU) to reference the metered data against an energy provider’s tariff schedule.
The first step in creating an Energy and Demand report is to preconfigure the TOU
schedule that will be applied to the metered data. If you do not require a time of
use schedule, you can create a mock schedule with only one time period defined.
Use the EgyDmd Log as a query item.
Load Profile
This report generates a graphical representation of demand, or load levels, over a
given time frame. The profile is a characterization of peak loads that can be used
to determine and limit demand peaks which could lead to financial penalties for
energy consumers, or could signal a need for additional generation or the
introduction of load control programs for energy suppliers.
The Load Profile report also uses the EgyDmd Log as a query item, but it does not
use a TOU schedule.
Power Quality
This report summarizes the number and severity of sags and swells over a given
time range, and graphically represents the waveform captures of each individual
event for further analysis.
The Power Quality report is slightly different than the other two report types mainly in its requirements for different data log sources. The Power Quality report
requires a combination of the Sag/Swell Log and Waveform Log.
EN50160
EN50160 is a general power quality standard used by energy suppliers and energy
consumers in European countries. The report is a summary of the multiple pass/
fail results of the evaluation methods outlined in the standard.
The following logs are used for the EN50160_General report:
EN50160 Vlt Dp1 to EN50160 Vlt Dp5
EN50160 Ovrvlt1 to EN50160 Ovrvlt3
EN50160 Frq/Mg, EN50160 Flicker, EN50160 Intrp, EN50160 Hrm Vlt, EN50160
Ihm Vlt, and EN50160 Vunbal
All fourteen of the above logs must be added to each EN50160_General report.
EN50160 MSignal is the log used for the EN50160_Mains_Signal report.
NOTE
The 73xx Series meters do not support EN50160 compliance. Although you see them as viable selections
in Reporter, the 73xx Series meters do not have the logs needed to create EN50160 reports.

Report Creation and Generation
Creating a Time of Use Schedule
1.
Start Reporter and select the TOU tab.
2.
Select the Sample file, then click copy to duplicate it.
All of the pre-configured samples include some basic programing to simplify
customization. It is generally best to create a copy of the samples before making
changes, and leave the sample in its default state.
NOTE
Be aware that the NEW button creates a completely new report or TOU schedule with no default
configuration. Use this option to create completely customized reports.
3.
Select your new copy and click Properties to configure it.
Examples of the changes you may want to make to the TOU schedule are as
follows:
Rename the TOU Schedule using the appropriate field.
Modify On Peak and Off Peak charges using the appropriate field.
Add a 'Shoulder Period' which is often called a 'Partial Peak' (see below).
Change the Holidays to an appropriate country (see below).
4.
Save the new TOU configuration when configuration is complete.
Adding a Shoulder Period
1.
Highlight the Off Peak period by left clicking on it, select New.
2.
Rename your new tariff period (i.e. Partial Peak).
3.
Modify the time period by left clicking the plus sign, selecting the time period
and changing the time within the left window.
4.
You will also have to modify the time period within the On Peak and/or Off Peak
intervals to ensure that there is no overlap (i.e. if your new 'Partial Peak' period
is between 6:00 and 8:00 PM, then you will have to change your 'Off Peak' period
to 8:00 PM to End Of Day).
Changing Which Days are Holidays
1.
Select the Off Peak period.
2.
Left-click 'All Day, Canada Holidays' and select a different country from the
window on the left.
3.
Add or remove holiday dates as required.
CAUTION
Double check to make certain that there are no gaps and no overlapping date or time ranges.
The TOU schedule should not be confused with the Time of Use Module used by billing applications.
Once you have completed configuring the TOU schedule, you are ready to create
the actual Energy and Demand report.

ION Setup Software
9300 Series User’s Guide
ION Setup Software
ION Setup is a software solution that allows basic configuration and control
capabilities for your power monitoring devices. ION Setup can also display realtime and diagnostic data for your networked devices.
When starting ION Setup, you have the option to enter network mode or single
device mode at the logon screen. Network mode allows you to add multiple sites
and meters to your network, organize your meters into logical groups, and
configure each site and meter individually. The single device mode, however,
allows you to connect to only one meter and make changes to its configuration or
view its data.
Refer to the documentation on you ION Setup CD or visit the Siemens website for
complete details on ION Setup.
Configuring Communications
With ION Setup, you first create one or more communication sites: the site defines
the communication method. You then add devices to a site, followed by grouping
the devices in a logical manner according to your needs (e.g. by common function
or physical location).
These are the
types of sites
available
You can group
meters from
different sites
NOTE
You must be logged on to ION Setup in network mode in order to add a site, group, or device.

Configuring Communications
Sites, Groups, and Meters
You can create a network of items within ION Setup so that the next time you want
to upgrade a meter’s firmware or make any configuration changes, the meter is
easy to find and your communication setup is ready.
Sites refers to a communication method. For example, you need separate sites for
Ethernet, Serial or Modem types of communication. A site can have many
connected devices. You can also have one meter that is connected to two or more
sites provided that the meter has the capability.
A group is an optional feature that lets you define a logical grouping of meters. For
example, you can have a group of meters for power quality monitoring, or you can
have a group of meters defined by location. Groups are always attached to the
System icon. Devices within each group are attached to both the group and a
communications site (sites are connected to the workstation).
You can add a meter to a communication site or a group. When you add a meter
to a group, it is automatically attached to the appropriate communication site.
However, when you delete a meter from a group, the meter remains attached to
the communication site.
Adding a Site, Group or Meter
1.
Close any open windows to return to the Network Viewer screen. Do one of
the following:
From the toolbar, click the Insert An Item button, or
From the Insert menu, choose Item, or

Communications
This section describes the meter communications media types and communications
applications. The diagram below shows the 9300 Series meter communication ports
with a brief description of how each port is used.
COM 3:
Optical serial connection
NOTE
All 9300 Series meters provide COM 3, an
optical (infrared) port. The optical port
(located on the front of the meter) is used for
serial communications, and supports these
protocols: ION, Modbus RTU, or DNP (9330
/ 9350). The port can also be used for
energy pulsing.
The meter’s internal modem
communicates to the server
computer over the telephone
network.
The Profibus meter option for the 9300 uses
special COM connections.
Ethernet connection
M
DM
COM1 COM2
All 9300 Series meters support the optional
Ethernet card. An Ethernet connection
supports ION, Modbus RTU, or Modbus/TCP
protocols.
COM 1:
RS-485 serial connection or ModemGate
COM 2:
RS-485 serial connection or EtherGate
All 9300 Series meters provide COM 1: an
RS-485 serial communications port that
supports these protocols: ION, Modbus
RTU, or DNP (9330 / 9350).
9330 and 9350 meters with an internal
modem can use the ModemGate protocol
on COM 1, allowing the meter’s internal
modem to communicate with the meter, the
WinPM.Net server computer, and any
devices that are wired to the meter’s COM 1
port.
The 9330 or 9350 meter provides COM 2.
If your meter has an Ethernet card, then
COM 2 functions as an Ethernet gateway
(EtherGate) — EtherGate transfers data
directly between an Ethernet network and
any devices that are wired to the meter’s
COM 2 port. If there is no Ethernet card,
then COM 2 functions as a serial
communications RS-485 port, and supports
ION, Modbus RTU, or DNP protocols.
The 9300 Series meter has numerous communication possibilities depending on
your ordering preferences. However, not all communications options are available
to each model. The standard meter has two or three serial communication ports:
an RS-485 port on COM 1, another RS-485 port on COM 2, and an Infrared port on
COM 3. Optional ports can include an internal modem, a 10 Base-T Ethernet
communication port, or a Profibus port. The table outlines the communication
(COM) ports for each 9300 Series meter. Information regarding Profibus —
available only on the 9300 meter - can be found in its sections.

RS-485 Connections
Refer to the “Hardware Reference” chapter for the 9300 Series RS-485
specifications. The communication card is designed with optical coupling that
provides full isolation between the RS-485 communication lines and the meter
internal circuitry. This circuitry provides protection from common mode voltages
and incorrect connections. All inputs pass the ANSI/IEEE C37.90-1989 surge
withstand and fast transient tests.
The communications terminal strip on the rear of the meter shows two
communication ports: COM 1 and COM 2. (The COM 2 port is not available on the
9300.) Up to 32 devices can be connected on a single RS-485 bus. Use a good quality
shielded twisted pair cable for each RS-485 bus, AWG 22 (0.5 mm2) or larger. The
overall length of the RS-485 cable connecting all devices cannot exceed 4000 ft.
(1219 m). The RS-485 bus may be configured in straight-line or loop topologies.

General Bus Wiring Considerations
Devices connected on the bus, including the meter, converter(s) and other
instrumentation, must be wired as follows:
The shield of each segment of the RS-485 cable must be connected to ground at
one end only.
Isolate cables as much as possible from sources of electrical noise.
Use an intermediate terminal strip to connect each device to the bus. This allows
for easy removal of a device for servicing if necessary.
Chapter 5 - Features and Applications
Page 107
Optical Port Connections
9300 Series User’s Guide
Install a ¼ Watt termination resistor (RT) between the (+) and (-) terminals of the
device at each end point of a straight-line bus. The resistor should match the
nominal impedance of the RS-485 cable (typically 120 ohms – consult the
manufacturer’s documentation for the cable’s impedance value).
CAUTION
Do not connect ground to the shield at both ends of a segment. Doing so allows ground loop currents to
flow in the shield, passing noise into the communications cable.
RS-485 Connection Methods to Avoid
Any Device connection that causes a branch in the main RS-485 bus should be
avoided. This includes star and tee (T) methods. These wiring methods cause signal
reflections that may cause interference. At any connection point on the RS-485 bus,
no more than two cables should be connected. This includes connection points on
instruments, converters, and terminal strips. Following this guideline ensures that
both star and tee connections are avoided.

The meter with an internal modem uses the modem to communicate to a master
device (e.g. server computer with WinPM.Net software) over the telephone
network.
Meter Setup for Modem Communications
To enable communications through the meter’s internal modem, you must
configure the Comm 1 Communications module. The Baud Rate, Unit ID, and
Protocol setup registers must properly match your system, and the initialization
string for the internal modem must be set up using the ModemInit register.
ModemInit Setup Register
The ModemInit string register defines the initialization string for the internal
modem, with a maximum of 47 characters.
Edit the ModemInit register and enter the initialization string desired. The string is
sent to the modem as soon as you download the COM 1 module. Note that the
string is also sent to the modem whenever the meter is powered up, or whenever
the baud rate in the Comm 1 Communications module is changed.
Any changes to the Modem Init or Baud Rate setup registers while the modem is
online will cause the modem to disconnect from the phone line.

Digital and Analog I/O
9300 Series User’s Guide
Digital and Analog I/O
Digital and analog I/O ports on ION meters let you bring a variety of data into a
common system, thereby simplifying data gathering. The 9300 Series offers
numerous digital and analog I/O combinations.
All series meters provide four digital (relay) output ports, one infrared data port,
and one configurable LED output. The digital outputs are used as status outputs
or for relay control. The infrared port can be used as a communications port, or it
can be configured as a digital output for energy pulsing applications. The LED (L1)
is used for energy pulsing. The 9330 and the 9350 meters also provide four digital
(status) inputs. These optically isolated digital inputs can monitor status, count
transducer pulses, breaker trips and pulses from any external "volts free" dry
contact.
NOTE
The LED (L1) is preconfigured for kWh pulsing, but it can be easily reconfigured to perform kVAh pulsing,
kVARh pulsing or any other digital output function.
There is also an analog I/O option - four analog inputs and four analog outputs that can be specified for any 9300 Series meter. These allow you to monitor a wide
range of conditions, such as device cycles (RPM), flow rates, fuel levels, oil
pressures and transformer temperatures. You can output energy pulses to an RTU
or perform equipment control operations.
An optional external relay board (the REB option) is available with four external
relays that connect to the onboard digital outputs. Several different types of digital
output devices are available for use with the external relay board; refer to
www.sea.siemens.com for the External I/O Output Device Part Summary.
Refer to the technical note Digital and Analog I/O for more information regarding
digital and analog inputs and outputs than is provided in this User’s Guide.
Specifying a Port In an ION Module
The Digital Output, Digital Input (9330 and 9350), Analog Output, Analog Input,
Pulser, and Calibration Pulser modules have Port setup registers that allow you to
specify which port handles the outgoing or incoming signals. To assign a port to
one of these modules, simply modify the Port setup register by picking a port from
the enumerated list. This can be done with both Designer and ION Setup.
Be aware that the enumerated list only displays those ports that are not yet
assigned to another module. For example, the meter’s default configuration has
port L1 assigned to Calibration Pulser module “kWh imp LED.” If you create a
new Calibration module and modify its Port setup register, port L1 does not
appear in the list of available ports. To make a port available, you must locate the
module controlling it and set the module’s Port setup register to NOT USED (or
delete the module entirely). The port now appears in the list of available ports.

Using the Onboard Digital Outputs
The four digital output ports are located on the rear of the meter. ION Digital
Output, Calibration Pulser, or Pulser modules control the function of the digital
output ports. These modules define the characteristics of outgoing signals and can
act as intermediaries between the hardware port and the other modules in the
meter. Digital Output ports can be used to control relays or send status signals.
You configure Digital Output, Calibration Pulser, and Pulser modules by
specifying to which hardware port they send signals. You are also responsible for
the settings that define the type of pulses the modules send. Once you have
configured the modules, they can be controlled by other ION modules that
provide trigger outputs.

Energy Pulsing
Five Calibration Pulser modules are preconfigured at the factory for energy
pulsing applications. One of these modules is programmed to send kWh pulses to
the LED on the back of the meter. The remaining four (configured for imported/
exported kWh and kVARh pulsing) can be configured to send energy pulses to any
digital output port. Edit the appropriate Calibration Pulser or Pulser module’s Port
setup register, and set it to the port you want to send the signal through (D1, D2,
D3 or D4, or IR1).
LED Energy Pulsing
The LED port (L1) controls the LED on the back of the meter. This port is used for
kWh pulsing by default; LED 1 on the back of the meter pulses every 1.8 Wh. If you
wish to configure the LED for other energy pulsing applications (i.e. kVAh, kVARh),
you must first disable the default kWh pulsing. Use the front panel to disable kWh
pulsing as follows:
1.
From the SELECT SETUP menu, choose ADV METER SETUP > CALIBRATION
PULSER MODULES > KWH IMP LED, and highlight the Port setup register and
press the round button.
2.
From the list of available ports, select NOT USED.
These steps remove control of the L1 LED from the kWh IMP LED module. You
can also disable the kWh pulsing using Designer. Select the kWh imp LED
Calibration Pulser module and disable L1 by setting the Port setup register to NOT
USED.
Configuring Other Energy Pulsing Applications
Now that you have the L1 port free to assign a pulse to, you can assign other Pulser,
Digital Output, or Calibration Pulser modules to it. Using the front panel, assign a
Pulser module as follows:
1.
From SELECT SETUP choose ADV METER SETUP, then select the new module type
and the module you wish to use for pulsing the LED.
2.
Scroll down and select the Port (e.g. PU2) setup register, then choose L1.
You can also configure LED energy pulsing from Designer. Select the Digital
Output, Pulser, or Calibration Pulser module you wish to use and set its Port setup
register to L1.
Using the Relay Expansion Board (REB Option)
The REB option (Relay Expansion Board) allows for custom digital output
applications using specific Grayhill relay units. The REB option provides four slots
where you can plug Grayhill digital output hardware modules. There are nine
Grayhill hardware modules of varying functionality available. The relays are
purchased separately.
As with onboard digital outputs, the Pulser, Calibration Pulser, and Digital Output
modules can be used to control the functions of the external relays. Set the
module’s Port setup register to the digital output port (D1 to D4) that the relay is
connected to.

Using the Onboard Digital Inputs
9300 Series User’s Guide
Using the Onboard Digital Inputs
The 9330 and the 9350 meters’ four onboard digital (status) inputs can be used for
monitoring external contacts or pulse counting applications. These inputs can be
used for dry contact sensing, but they cannot be used for voltage sensing
applications.
The function of each digital input is controlled by the Digital Input modules S1
through S4. These modules are preconfigured at the factory, together with four
Counter modules for counting status changes, and an External Pulse module for
resetting the Counter modules.
The four Digital Input modules are factory configured as follows (refer to the
online ION Programmer’s Reference for complete details on module function):
Setup Register
Factory Setting
Input Mode
Pulse (complete pulse as opposed to KYZ transition pulse)
Event Log Mode
Log Off (status changes are not logged)
Polarity
Inverting (hardware signal is inverted)
Debounce
0.010 (mechanical contact bounce, in seconds)
Port
S1 to S4 (specifies which hardware port the module controls)
Once you have connected the status inputs to the field equipment they are going
to monitor, check the meter’s Digital Input modules to ensure they are configured
appropriately.
Using the Optional Analog Inputs
The four optional Analog Input ports allow you to monitor a wide range of
conditions, such as device cycles (RPM), flow rates, fuel levels, oil pressures and
transformer temperatures. Both types of Analog Inputs (either 0-20mA or 0-1mA)
are suitable for monitoring DC signals from transducers in your system. Analog
Input modules control the analog input ports.
You use Designer to create and configure Analog Input modules. Set the Analog
Input module’s Port setup register to the appropriate analog input port on the rear
of the meter. Link the Analog Input module’s ScaledValu output to another module
or framework for analysis.
NOTE
Your meter’s default template may already have a framework of pre-configured Analog Input and Analog
Output modules.

Using the Optional Analog Outputs
The four optional Analog Output ports can output energy pulses to an RTU or
perform equipment control operations. Both types of Analog Output (either 020mA or 0-1mA) can deliver a continuous DC signal. Analog Output modules
control these hardware ports.
You use ION Designer to create and configure these ION modules. Create an
Analog Output module for each output port you are going to use, and link their
Source input to a value you want to reflect through the analog outputs. Alter the

mA outputs (i.e. delivers a 4 mA current with a zero Source input value to the
Analog Output module), use the following formula:
Zero Scale = - 0.25 * Full Scale
For example, with a Full Scale value of 100, your Zero Scale setting would be -25.

Data and Event Logging
9300 Series User’s Guide
Data and Event Logging
The meter includes powerful data logging (9330 and 9350 meters only) and event
recording capabilities. Data and event logs recorded by the meter are prioritized
and stored onboard. Data is retrieved periodically by the WinPM.Net software Log
Server (or other third party application).
If you use WinPM.Net software, all retrieved data from your system is stored in an
ODBC-compliant database. The information in the database can be viewed and
analyzed using WinPM.Net software applications such as Vista (for viewing), or
Reporter (for organizing and presenting data).
Data Logging (9330 and 9350)
The standard configuration of the meter includes data recorders that log various
power system data such as energy and demand, or the average power system
quantity used over a period of time (Historic Mean Log). The 9350 also logs sags
and swells in voltage.
Reporting
The Data Recorder module labeled EGY DMD LOG is configured to provide power
system data for Reporter software to create reports from the device’s logs. If any
input links to this module are changed, Reporter will not be able to create reports.
If you use the Reporter software, do not change the parameters that are logged in
the Egy Dmd Log.
Revenue Logging
For the revenue meter option, Data Recorder #1 is locked, so channels must be
specified prior to the meter being sealed. Refer to RMICAN Ordering Sheet on our
website for your particular meter.
NOTE
For compatibility with the UTS MV-90 billing software, Data Recorder #1 must be configured as a 16channel recorder.
To learn more about the data recorder modules in your meter, refer to ION Device
Templates at www.sea.siemens.com. ION Device Templates located at
www.sea.siemens.com lists all of the ION modules available in the current version
of your meter, and the total number of each module. ION Device Templates also
shows the ranges or options available for each module’s setup registers.
Changing Parameters that are Logged
The factory-configured meter logs a comprehensive set of parameters. Adding or
deleting log parameters is an advanced procedure that requires changing links
between modules using Designer software.
Once you are comfortable editing module links, change logged parameters by
linking the output registers you want logged to the inputs of an ION Data
Recorder module.
Page 126
Chapter 5 - Features and Applications
9300 Series User’s Guide
Event Logging
Event Logging
Events produced by the various ION modules in the meter are prioritized and
grouped to facilitate custom logging. Each event has a priority group number
assigned to it, based on its type and severity.
ION Event Priority Groups
Some event groups are preset with a Priority Number as shown in the table below.
You can also define your own priority number for some modules. Priority
numbers from 128-191 appear in the global even log viewer in WinPM.Net
software. Priority numbers from 192-255 are logged, initiate a beep and cause the
window to flash. You can customize these responses to display messages or
perform netsend messages, for example.
The Event Log Controller module allows you to set a priority cutoff for event
logging. Any events with a priority number greater than the cutoff value are
logged, and events with lower priorities are discarded. Refer to the individual
module descriptions and the Event Log Controller module description in the
online ION Programmer’s Reference for more details.

Logging and Recording Capacity
9300 Series User’s Guide
Logging and Recording Capacity
Data and Event Logging (9330 and 9350)
The standard memory capacity for both meters is 304 kilobytes of non-volatile
memory. This is enough memory to log 16 parameters every 15 minutes for 30 days.
However, by default the meter is set for a log depth of 930, which is enough for 9
days. Use the following equation to help determine different variations on this
example:
each record consumes = ((number of parameters * 6) + 8)
Waveform Recording (9350)
The meter can simultaneously capture events on all channels to a maximum of 48
cycles each. To calculate the waveform memory usage use the following formula:
waveform memory usage = (2*(number of samples per cycle) + 10)*(number of
cycles in waveform) + 30

Time Synchronization
Time Synchronization
Time synchronization lets you synchronize the internal clocks of all networked
meters and devices. Once synchronized, all data logs have timestamps that are
relative to a uniform time base. This allows you to achieve precise sequence-ofevents and power quality analyses. To synchronize clocks, use ACCESS software
to broadcast time signals across the network.
Refer to the technical note Time Synchronization and Timekeeping for more
information on implementing time synchronization for your system.
Enabling or Customizing Time Synchronization

Meter Security
9300 Series User’s Guide
Meter Security
The meter’s security settings allow you to configure the meter through the front
panel, with ACCESS software, or with the optional embedded web server.
Standard meter security
Anytime you make configuration changes to your meter, either through the front
panel or with ION software, you must enter a password.
Anti-tamper sealing
Your revenue meter can be protected by anti-tamper sealing.
Software security
ACCESS software security brings access-level security to the meter. With ACCESS
software, you can configure multiple users with different passwords and specify
access rights. For example, one user may have view-only rights, while another user
may have meter configuration rights. ACCESS software security only applies to
users who are accessing the meter via ION software.
For more information on meter security, refer to the ION Security technical note in
Appendix A.
Standard Meter Security
Standard meter security lets you configure the meter through the front panel or
with communications software using a meter password.
This section describes password security options available from the front panel of
the meter. Step-by-step instructions are given to help you enter, or change the
meter password and disable (enable) the password security check on the front
panel of the meter.
Entering the Password through the Front Panel
The first time you make a change to any setting you are presented with the
Password display. The factory configured password is zero (0). The password
prevents unauthorized tampering with your meter’s configuration. Depending on
site security, you may want to modify the user password from the default to
protect your configuration. The default password is “00000” and can be set to a
maximum numeric value of 60000.

Alerting
9300 Series User’s Guide
Alerting
The purpose of an ION alert system is to send an email or to contact a modem, fax,
pager, or software in the event of a user-specified condition. These conditions can
be changes in relays or power quality problems including surges, sags, swells and
outages. With ION alarm notification, you can automatically advise key people of
problems allowing quick remedial action, or notify ACCESS software so logs can
be uploaded from the site that initiated the alert.
The Alert module sends an alert whenever its Trigger input is pulsed. You can
connect this input to any module that produces a pulse output. You can use
modules that monitor alarm conditions such as changes in relay status and power
quality problems. For example, you can connect the Trigger input to the output of
a Setpoint module, thereby allowing the Alert module to send an alert when the
setpoint condition is reached.
The Alert module delivers these types of alerts:
Numeric Pager
Alphanumeric Pager
PEGASYS (for alerts to PEGASYS software)
ION Alert (for alerts to WinPM.Net software)
ASCII
Email
Selection between modes is made with the Alert module Alert Type setup register.
The Alert module requires access to either a modem (a dedicated modem or a
modem handling a loop of meters) or Ethernet (for the Alert module email
capabilities).
Alerting is briefly described in the following section. For detailed information
about alerting, including how to build a framework to send alerts, refer to the Alert
module description in the online ION Programmer’s Reference.
Alerting ION Software via the Alarm Server
NOTE
For detailed information about sending alerts to WinPM.Net software via the Alarm Server, refer to the
WinPM.Net online help.
The Alarm Server can run on any ACCESS software Primary or Secondary server.
The server computer should have a dedicated phone line and modem. Modems at
remote sites are programmed to dial the server's phone number when a priority
event occurs. The Alarm Server monitors the phone line and waits for the remote
sites to annunciate events. The most common use of the Alarm Server is to handle
Remote Site Event Notification.

The Alarm Server uses a series of command line arguments to specify the actions
it takes when a priority event is reported. These commands must be entered on the
computer that is running the Alarm Server utility. Typically the Alarm Server is
configured to launch the Connection Manager, which dials up the remote site and
retrieves the logs from the devices. The Alarm Server can also be configured to
launch other applications. A series of parameter switches are added to the
command line to pass information about the event to the application that is
launched.
Configuring the Alarm Server
The Alarm Server should have a dedicated phone line, modem, and COM port to
avoid conflicts with other ACCESS software components.
The modem used by the Alarm Server is not configured with the Management
Console– only dialout modems are configured in the Management Console. The
Alarm Server's executable, alarmsrv.exe, is typically located in
\\Siemens\WinPM.Net\SYSTEM\bin. You can run the Alarm Server in a console
window, or you can define a shortcut icon that includes all of the command line
arguments required.
Alarm Server Command Line Arguments
Refer to the WinPM.Net online help for a list of command lines that the Alarm
Server supports.

Alerting via an Alphanumeric Pager
9300 Series User’s Guide
Alerting via an Alphanumeric Pager
NOTE
For detailed information about building a framework for alerting via an alphanumeric pager, refer to the
Alert module description in the online ION Programmer’s Reference.
If an alphanumeric pager is specified as the destination address in the Alert
module, then an alphanumeric paging service, such as BC Tel Mobility, receives a
message from the ION meter.
Once the modem at the paging service is contacted, the ION meter transmits the
following information:
Pager identification number
Local time (year, month, date, hours, minutes, seconds)
Remote site identification
Priority of the alarm
Alert message, with text strings and realtime measured values
To include a module’s Source input in the message, reference the message string by
using the form %Vn, where n is the Source input number. In the following Message
register setting, the kWtot value is %V1. The string includes Source input 1 which
would be the kWtot register from the Power Meter module.
The destination register contains your modem access number for the paging
service provider and is what is dialed out first. The Pager Num register is the pager
access number that is provided by your paging company.
Alerting via a Numeric Pager
NOTE
For detailed information about building a framework for alerting via a numeric pager, refer to the Alert
module description in the online ION Programmer’s Reference.
If a numeric pager is specified as the destination address in the Alert module, then
a numeric paging service receives a message from the ION meter. Due to the
inherent limitations in numeric paging, the ION meter can only send a string of
digits to the paging service. The Alert module then waits a specified time,
determined by the number of commas inserted after the phone number in the Pager
Num setup register. Finally, the Alert module dials the message digital string.
There are two important factors to consider when setting up the Alert module for
numeric paging. First, be sure to specify a string of digits that is meaningful to you,
such as a coded message. Second, be aware that there is no way to assure that a
message has been successfully transmitted. Instead, there may be a busy signal or
an answering machine may take the call. The number of commas you add to your
dial string is an estimate of how long the modem at the remote site waits before it
transmits numbers.
Page 134
Chapter 5 - Features and Applications
9300 Series User’s Guide
Alerting via Email (9330 and 9350)
NOTE
In the following destination-setting example: 1-250-555-666,,,,,999#, the pager number is 1-250-555666 and the message string that displays on the pager is 999. You may need to insert 9,,, before the
destination number if the line you are using is not a direct line. In this case the destination number is
9,,1-250-555-666,,999#
Alerting via Email (9330 and 9350)
NOTE
For detailed information about setting up your network and building a framework for meter email
(MeterM@il) alerts, refer to the technical note ION MeterM@il.
If email is specified as the destination address in the Alert module then an email
message is sent to any address you specify. You can only set one email address per
Alert module. If you want to send an alert to more than one email address you
need to create a group — be sure your email server is configured to send email to
groups via SMTP (Simple Message Transport Protocol).
Follow the steps below to send email alerts from your meter. Note that your meter
must support emailing (with a correctly configured SMTP server):
1.
Create an Alert module.
2.
Configure these Alert module setup registers as indicated:
Message – type in the text of the alert to be emailed.
Destination – type in the destination email address.
Type – select Email.
Com Port – select Ethernet.
Location – type in a custom string; this is optional, and appears in the email.
Email From – type in an address that you want the email to appear from. This
may be required as some SMTP servers only accept emails from valid
addresses.
Chapter 5 - Features and Applications
3.
Create an ION module that will produce a pulse on its Trigger output when the
exceptional event occurs (for example, a Setpoint module pulses its Trigger
output when the setpoint condition is reached).
4.
Link the Alert module’s Trigger input to the Trigger output of the module created
in step 3.
5.
Send and save. When the Trigger input is pulsed, the Alert module establishes
communications with the SMTP mail server, and emails the alert message.

9300 Series Revenue Meters
The fundamental functions of a revenue meter are to provide measurements that
are within industry-accepted limits for accuracy over a defined range of operating
conditions and to provide adequate protection against unauthorized alteration of
these measured quantities. International and national standards define industryaccepted accuracy limits. National and utility-based standards regulate protection
against unauthorized alteration of measured quantities.

Differences between Standard and Revenue Models
The revenue meter differs from the standard (non-revenue) meter – additional
modules for revenue calculations and new energy output register labels have been
added to the revenue meter firmware.
Revenue Meter Energy Register Labels
The revenue and non-revenue meters differ in how they label energy flow:
standard (non-revenue) meters use the terms “imported” and “exported” energy,
whereas the revenue meters use the terms “delivered” and “received” energy.

non-revenue devices as follows:
imp is del
tot is del+rec
exp is rec
net is del-rec
For example, the meter’s output register kVARh tot will be kVARh del+rec in the
revenue meter model.
Additional Revenue Metering Modules
There are additional modules incorporated into the template of the revenue meter.
Some of these modules are used in the calculation and logging of both V2h and I2h
(used for transformer and line loss compensation).
Security Mechanisms
To meet Government regulations and Utility security requirements, the revenue
meter incorporates three types of security systems:
a traditional anti-tamper mechanical seal on the meter base unit
a password-based security system that permits password protected minimum/
maximum resets (for example, Sliding Window Demand reset)
a hardware-based security system that prevents modification of revenue
quantities after the meter is sealed
Chapter 6 - Revenue Metering
Page 139
Security Mechanisms
9300 Series User’s Guide
Anti-Tamper Seals
The revenue meter incorporates one or two sealing cans through which traditional
lead/wire seals can be inserted. When utilized, these lead/wire seals effectively
prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining access to meter internals. These seals
are provided with the meter, and are installed as follows:
1.
Place the sealing can over one of the rear panel corner holes and insert the
screw into the hole through the sealing can.
2.
Insert the ball bearing into the sealing can over the head of the screw. Install the
wire through the two holes in the sealing can.
3.
Twist the wire and crimp the lead-sealing tab onto the wire.
Password Protected Min/Max Register Resets
The meter front panel incorporates a password that must be entered in order to
reset any of the minimum/maximum register values. The password must therefore
be used to reset peak demand register values.
Hardware-based Security
The revenue meter is equipped with a comprehensive security system that provides
protection against unauthorized alteration or tampering of revenue-related
quantities. This security system locks all revenue-related ION modules, ION links
and ION setup-registers. Basic meter configuration parameters including volts
mode (service-type), PT ratio, and CT ratio are locked. These locks are automatically
enabled (at the factory) for all sealed revenue meters. Typical values that are
protected include:
kWh, kVARh, kVAh delivered, received, del-rec, del+rec

Chapter 6 - Revenue Metering
9300 Series User’s Guide
Configuring the Revenue Meter
Configuring the Revenue Meter
When enabled, the revenue meter security system prevents unauthorized
alteration of revenue-related quantities. By default, all revenue meters are shipped
from the factory with the security system enabled. You can temporarily disable the
security to configure your revenue meter. This is done by removing the meter’s
back plate, and placing a jumper into the meter.
Before Disassembling the Meter
Before attempting to remove the back plate of the revenue meter, ensure that the
device is protected against static-electric discharge. To prevent damage to the unit,
wear an anti-static wrist strap at all times.
DANGER
During normal operation of the 7350 ION, hazardous voltages are present which can cause severe injury
or death. These voltages are present on the terminal strips of the device and throughout the connected
potential transformer (PT), current transformer (CT), status input, relay, and control power circuits.
Installation and servicing should be performed only by qualified, properly trained personnel.
1.
Open all PT fuses (or direct voltage input fuses) and close all CT shorting
blocks.
2.
Turn off all power to the revenue meter and disconnect the Line and Neutral (or
DC power) wires from the Supply Power inputs to the unit.
3.
Disconnect all other wiring (or power off all other circuits) that may present
potentially hazardous voltage levels to the unit, such as connections to the relay
outputs.
4.
Ensure that all cables still connected to the revenue meter are NOT live.
Inserting the Key
In order to configure the revenue meter, ensure that adequate safety precautions
have been exercised as above.
CAUTION
The components inside the 7350 ION-RM are extremely sensitive to electro-static discharge. To prevent
damage to the unit, wear an anti-static wrist strap at all times when working inside the unit. Failure to use
proper equipment during servicing will void the 7350 ION-RM warranty.
Chapter 6 - Revenue Metering
1.
Remove the thumbscrews and retainer bars from the unit.
2.

3.
Slide out the rear plate of the device to reveal the unit’s circuit board panels.
4.
Locate the two-pin jumper header labeled “J1” on the communications card.
Page 141
Configuring the Revenue Meter
9300 Series User’s Guide
5.
Place the jumper block on to the J1 two-pin header (this disables the hardware
based security). Slide the rear plate back into the device and replace the four
screws onto the real panel. Apply Control power to the revenue meter.
6.
Configure the meter (e.g. Volts mode, PT and CT ratios, Pulse outputs).
7.
Remove control power from the revenue meter.
8.
Slide the rear plate out and remove the jumper block from the two-pin header to
re-enable the hardware-based security.
9.
Replace the rear plate and re-apply the anti-tamper seals.

Installation Instructions
CAUTION
Installation and maintenance of the switchboard meter should only be performed by qualified personnel
who have appropriate training and experience with high voltage and high current devices.
If the switchboard case is included with your meter, draw the meter chassis out of
the case to facilitate its installation into the mounting hole. Installing and setting
up the switchboard meter is summarized in the following steps.
1.
Review the unit’s dimensions and prepare a mounting hole for the
switchboard case. If you are retrofitting your switchboard meter into an
existing case, you may have to drill or punch a 29mm (1.13”) round hole in the
back of the case to accommodate communications, I/O, and/or auxiliary power
wiring.
NOTE
For retrofitting S1 style switchboard cases, a pre-drilled backplate is included. To use it, remove the
backplate from the old switchboard case and replace it with the supplied backplate.
2.
Place the supplied 29mm (1.13”) nylon bushing into the drilled hole if desired.
Refer to “Unit Dimensions” on page 161.
