TECHNICAL NOTE
WebMeter® Internal Web Server Feature
Several Ethernet‐equipped PowerLogic® ION® meters offer WebMeter capability, allowing you to view meter data and perform basic meter configuration using a web browser. The meter can be connected to your corporate Ethernet network, like any other network device, and you can access it with Internet Explorer. NOTE
Your meter must have its web server enabled for users to view meter data or configure meter settings.
See “Enabling/Disabling Meter Web Server Functionality” on page 9 for more information.

Viewing WebMeter Data on the Internet
WebMeter Internal Web Server Feature
Viewing WebMeter Data on the Internet
With the WebMeter feature, you can view various power measurements over the web, in both HTML and XML formats. There are two types of web pages you can use to view meter data: default and custom. The default pages display pre‐determined sets of values while custom pages can be created to display any values you require. The default web pages vary slightly from meter to meter. However, typical pages and their displayed values include:
Operation: real‐time voltages, currents, power (kW, kVAR, kVA), power factor and frequency
Consumption: accumulated energy and peak demand
Power Quality: voltage and current harmonics and voltage disturbances
Trending & Forecasting: graphical view of trends and forecasts for selected parameters.
Although you cannot create more default pages, you can make minor alterations to the existing ones.
Viewing Web Pages
See “Setting the default home page” on page 4 for instructions on how to change the default home page. NOTE
Some meters use frames to organize their web pages. If your meter uses frames, only the IP Address
appears in the Address field of the browser, regardless of which page you are currently viewing. To find
the full name of a web page in this case, right-click on the main area of the page and select Properties.
Look at the Address (URL) field to find the name of the web page (with the .html extension), for example,
WebPage.html.
Viewing default web pages
1.
Start your web browser.
2.
Enter the meter’s IP address into the browser’s address field. The default meter home page appears (this varies depending on the meter).
NOTE
Depending on your meter and its security settings, you may be prompted to enter a user name and the
meter password. Type them and click OK.
3.
To view data on other web pages, click the links at the side or top of the page.
To view only one particular page, enter the address of the page and use the .html extension. For example:
http://10.1.50.42/webpage1.html.

Viewing Web Pages
See “Configuring Your Meter” on page 6 for information on the Setup and Network Setup pages.
Viewing Trending & Forecasting pages
NOTE
To view trending and forecasting pages, your meter must have this feature and you need to install the
ActiveX control on your computer. To install the ActiveX control, navigate to /.../ION Setup/ProEssentials
Graph Install.exe. Double-click on the file and follow the instructions in the installation wizard. If you do
not have ION Setup on your workstation, you can download the file from the Support area of the
PowerLogic website.
1.
Start your web browser. 2.
Enter the meter’s IP address into the browser’s Address field. The default meter home page appears (this varies depending on the meter).
3.
Click the Trending & Forecasting link.
4.
Select the quantity and the interval you want to view on the graph. Refer to your meter’s User Guide for more information on the web pages associated with the trending and forecasting feature.
Viewing custom web pages
1.
Start your web browser.
2.
Enter the meter’s IP address into the browser’s Address field. The default meter home page appears (this varies depending on the meter). 3.
To view a custom page in HTML, click the links at the side or top of the page. To view only one particular page, enter the address of the page and use the .html extension. For example:
http://10.1.50.42/webpage1.html
4.
To view a custom page in XML, enter the address of the page with the .xml extension. For example:
http://10.1.50.42/webpage1.xml
5.
To view the meter’s catalog XML web page, enter the following address:
http://<enter meter IP address here>/catalog.xml

Creating Custom Web Pages
WebMeter Internal Web Server Feature
Setting the default home page
Use ION software to set which web page is the default home page when you connect to the meter.
NOTE
Some meters use frames to organize their web pages. If your meter uses frames, only the IP Address
appears in the Address field of the browser, regardless of which page you are currently viewing. To find
the full name of a web page in this case, right-click on the page and select Properties. Look at the Address
(URL) field to find the name of the web page (with the .html extension), for example, WepPage.html. Enter
the full name, with the .html extension, in the Default Web Page register.
Using ION Setup
1.
Open ION Setup and connect to your meter in Advanced Mode. 2.
Navigate to the Comm Module folder and double‐click on the Ethernet module in the right‐hand pane.
3.
Select the Setup Registers tab, select the Default Web Page register and click Edit.
4.
Type the name of the new default home page (including the .html extension) and click OK.
5.
Click Send to save your changes to the meter.
Using ION Enterprise

Connect to your meter in Designer and open the Communications Setup folder.
2.
Right‐click in the center of the Ethernet module. The ION Module Setup screen appears. 3.
Double‐click the Default Web Page setup register and enter the name of the new default home page (including the .html extension).
4.
Select Send & Save to save your changes to the meter.
Creating Custom Web Pages
The Web Page module is used to create custom pages with parameters that you specify. These pages can be created as either HTML or XML. The XML pages display only XML code in the browser unless they are linked to an XSLT stylesheet.
Custom Web Page Setup
The Web Page module has the following setup registers: Page Title: The title (and link text) for the customized web page.
Page Location: The location (or address) of the web page. XSLT Stylesheet1: The URL where the XSLT stylesheet is located (optional).

http://192.168.1.5/Office.xml
Hardware
In this example, the ION7550 meter is WebMeter enabled, and is acting as Modbus master to the ION7300 meter (acting as Modbus slave). The IP Address of the
ION7550 meter is 192.168.1.5 and it is also connected to the workstation PC via the Ethernet.
The ION7300 meter’s Unit ID is 113 and its location is Office. It is serially connected to the ION7550 meter using RS‐485 cable.
Framework
The framework for the ION7550 meter shows how the different modules are configured to produce a custom web page for the ION7300 meter.

WebMeter Internal Web Server Feature
Using WebMeter in a Modbus Network
Factory Module
The Factory module has been configured so that the setup register Device Namespace value is “Miami.CompanyX” and the setup register Device Name value is “MainMeter”.
Modbus Import Module
Three values (Value 1, 2 and 3) are imported from the ION7300 meter via the Modbus Import module. These values are then linked to the Web Page module for display on the web page. The Slave Addr setup register’s value is “113” which corresponds to the Unit ID of the Slave meter.
Web Page Module
The Web Page module has Values 1, 2 and 3 for its sources. Setup register Gatewayed Device Namespace has a default value which means the register inherits the value from the Factory module’s Device Namespace setup register. In this example, the value is “Miami.CompanyX”. Setup register Gatewayed Device Name value is “Office”. This value is important if more than one gatewayed device is sending XML data to the Web Page module. Otherwise, it can be left as default in which case the register inherits the value from the Factory module’s Device Name setup register. In this example, the value would be “MainMeter”.
The value of the Page Location setup register is “Office”. Since the ION7550 meter’s IP Address is 192.168.1.5, the web page for the ION7300 meter is found at: http://192.168.1.5/Office.html (or .xml).
