What are the differences between a PM8240 and an ION7400?

Dear,

What are the differences between a PM8240 and an ION7400?

I can't find a clear table to show the differences.

Thanks,

Philippe

Re: What are the differences between a PM8240 and an ION7400?

Here's my unofficial list of differences between ION7400 and PM8000 (differences I'm aware of)

  1. display hardware differences:
    • ANSI type 2 optical communication port
    • USB virtual serial port
    • 2x additional (pre-configured) Wh and VARh optical pulse outputs
  2. Firmware feature differences:
    • Support for Flicker module
    • Support for Mains Signaling compliance modules (max 5)
    • Support for display value scaling and display scrolling
    • Support for 2 extra display modes (3 vs 1), and 20 more custom displays (40 vs 20)
    • Support for an extra 61850 connection (5 vs 4)
    • Support for extra 75 DNP Slave Export modules (100 vs 25)
    • Support for DLMS
  3. default Framework/Template differences
    • Transformer and Line Loss power compensation
    • Test mode framework
    • Extra display modes/screens
    • Flicker framework
    • Mains Signalling compliance framework

Additionally ION7400 can measure flicker, PM8000 does not have this feature.
