How to get PM870 waveform w/o PME software?

Is the waveform accessible through PM8ECC embedded web server?

Thanks

Waveform captures can be accessed using ION Setup software.

Status:

Select the appropriate option to enable or disable this feature.

File Mode:

Select which method is used for storing waveforms:

  “FIFO” (first-in-first-out) mode discards the oldest waveform capture when the waveform storage is full.

  “Fill and Hold” mode keeps the oldest waveform capture and does not record new ones when the waveform storage becomes full.

Channels (PM870 only)

This allows you to select which inputs you want to set up for waveform capture.

Select “Channels” then click Edit.

Depending on your wiring configuration, certain inputs become N/A (not applicable). If this is the case, ION Setup displays this prompt:

1. Select the voltage and/or current input channels you want to capture. Click Next.

2. Set the capture options:

       Samples/Cycle

       Duration (cycles)

       Pre-Event Cycles


       Max Capture indicates the maximum number of recordings for waveform capture, and is shown for informational purpose only.

Barry,

Thanks for your reply.

I'm thinking about writing a script to implement what you suggested with IONSetup and get captured waveform file( JPEG?) in a specific directory that BMS can access.

Re: How to get PM870 waveform w/o PME software?

Hi Abon,

Please keep us updated with how you go with this, I have a customer who is interested in a similar solution. They want to use our meters but refuse to use SPME.

I'm also keen to understand if it will be possible to access the sag/swell/transient waveforms via the same method?

Regards,

Steven Yan

Re: How to get PM870 waveform w/o PME software?

Hi Abon -

I'll be interested in what you learn when you investigate the waveform display function of ION Setup.  I don't know how this is done, but I guess that it reads the Modbus registers in the meter and then maps/displays the data.  I do know that we have not publicly released the meter's Modbus mapping of the waveforms.

Regards,

John Straughn
