PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

In the PM8000 user manual, there is a reference to the meter having "Extended Waveform Capture" capability.  Looking at the Waveform Recorder Modules in Designer, I do not see the settings necessary to configure this.  Is this a mistake in the literature or perhaps it was implemented in a later FW version?

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

The "pre-trigger" and "post-trigger" features were part of the v2.1.0 release

https://download.schneider-electric.com/files?p_Doc_Ref=7EN12-0316

 

The latest released PM8000 firmware is now v3.0.0.

 

If you have firmware prior to v2.1, first follow these steps:

Then follow these steps to upgrade to v3

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

Hi Nicolas

 

A few notes to hopefully help.  First - assuming you have a firmware version > 2.0.0 on the PM8000.  

 

Second, the implementation is the same across PM8000/ION7400/ION9000 etc, so you can find some ION9000 hits on this forum if you search for extended waveform like this: https://community.exchange.se.com/t5/Metering-Power-Quality/ION9000-Waveform-capture/m-p/153434

 

ION Setup also makes this a little simpler too with the wizard if that's an option for you, but you can do it from first principles in Designer for sure.

 

Hope this helps !

 

Tom

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

This must be it, I'm running the simulator with v1.4.3... I'll update and check again, thanks for the help.

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

Thanks for the help.... does the ION Setup Wizard actually allow for the configuration of this... I was under the impression it did not and you had to use Designer.

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

Hello @Nicholas_Brown ,

 

Anything you can do in Designer you can do in ION Setup, Somethings are easy to do with the Setup Assistant, other things require using the Advanced configuration. 2 Differences, a) ION Setup is free, b) User interface is different.

 

Regards,

Charles

Re: PM8000 - Extended Waveform Capture

Thanks Charles, yeah I completely disregarded the abililty to configure individual modules in ION Setup, thanks for the reminder.
