Does the EM4800 PME 8 Device Driver support the correct "labeling" of a Meter Channel by Apartment Number ? For example I am doing 150 apartments next week and I do not want them to be IP Address/Channel Number CH01. I want to be able to go APT 1502 for

I have a PME 8 system and I need to add 24 EM4800 chassis and some floors have 2 chassis on the floor and the apartment numbers are based on which floor you are one. My apartments are all 100 amp / 2 pole / 240 breakers. I have as many as 16 apartments per floor, so that means since a EM4800 is limited to 12 breakers / 2 pole, I know I will have some fully populate chasis and some with just a few breakers.

In any case I have NONE TECHNICAL PEOPLE who will be reading the meter KW HOURS from the PME screen I develop for them.

If I force them to decode CH01 , CH02 , CH03 there will be blood on the floor.

So I was looking in the TRIACTA / SE / Config Software and I did not see a tool to rename

channels.

However , for the renaming to work, the ION Trees / Translators MUST support a channel naming method via the MODBUS Registers in the product. Otherwise I got me a whole lot of DESIGNER programming to do.

150 Apartments to be exact!!

Hi Sean,

You can use EM4800 Configuration Tool to assign Meter Points Names that will appear on the meter display, but in PME software you have to modify default Vista diagram and change the labels manually.

See EM4800 and RPP circuit naming for an alternative solution.  Let me know if this would work for the application and we can then try and prototype something that could be included in a future PME release.
