    Video: Changing my ION meter Alert Module to display local time instead of UTC?

    Issue
    Need to view local time in the alert sent by an ION Meter instead of the UTC time
     
    Product Line
    ION7330, ION7350, ION7400, ION7500, ION7550, ION7600, ION7650, ION8600, ION8650, PM8000
     
    Environment
    Application using an ION meter to communicate via the Alert Module in the meter's ION programming
     
    Cause
    The email alert sent out by an ION meter uses UTC time as the Timestamp.
     
    Resolution
    Unfortunately the timestamp cannot be changed to the Local Time. The setting is not a configurable part of the ION Alert Module. There is no way to mask the UTC reading.
    The work around is using the Clock Module of the meter. On the Alert Module, link the hour, minute, and second outputs of the Clock Module to Source2, Source3, and Source4. See figures of the view from Designer and ION Setup (accessed through Advanced Mode).

     
     
    Your message i.e.: Alert on %N1 (input 1) value: %V1      Local Time:%V2:%V3:%V4

    and the email you get would read:

    Message:Your message i.e.: Alert on Vll avg (input 1) value: 1039.45      Local Time:8:59:7
    Time:11/01/2006 16:59:07 UTC
    Priority:128
    Owner:
    Tag1:

    Notes

    • Only one measured value can be sent in the Alert Module because Hour, Minute, and Second are taking 3 of the 4 source options of the module.
    • Consider using Log Mail Module or Email Module (PME 8. only) in Designer as part of the VIP.
