How to change PM8xx data log file mode

The default setup file doesn't support the modification of the data log file mode but this functionality can be manually added to the file using the following steps.

 

Using Windows Explorer, locate the ION Setup program folder (typically C:\Program Files\Schneider Electric) and go into the TABLES sub-folder.

 

Next, go into the folder for the model you wish to add the file mode to (ex. PM820).  In that folder, you will find a SETUP.CFG file which you should open using a text editor such as Notepad.

 

Locate the section for the log you wish to add.  Below is the section for Data Log #1 for the PM820.

 

[Data Log #1]

FeatureMask=0x00010000

SetupNum=3

SetupType=1

StartAddress=47002,47012

Registers=4,4

Setup1=1,7,Status

List1=0=Disable,2730=Auto-Enable,65535=Enable

Setup2=3,32,Interval

Limit2=0,1440

Setup3=7,24,Channels

ChannelOffset=3

TotalFileSize=7404

FileInfo=1,32700

 

Increase the SetupNum by 1 (In the above example, this is done by modifying the line SetupNum=3 to SetupNum=4).

 

We'll insert the FileMode after the Interval, so we need to add the following line above the Setup3 line and change that line to read Setup4 instead.

 

Setup3=2,7,File Mode

List3=0=FIFO,1=Fill and Hold

Setup4=7,24,Channels

 

The section should now look similar to the following:

 

[Data Log #1]

FeatureMask=0x00010000

SetupNum=4

SetupType=1

StartAddress=47002,47012

Registers=4,4

Setup1=1,7,Status

List1=0=Disable,2730=Auto-Enable,65535=Enable

Setup2=3,32,Interval

Limit2=0,1440

Setup3=2,7,File Mode

List3=0=FIFO,1=Fill and Hold

Setup4=7,24,Channels

ChannelOffset=3

TotalFileSize=7404

FileInfo=1,32700

 

Save the file and reopen the Data Log setup screen in ION Setup and the File Mode will now be displayed and can be changed if desired to do so.
