    Video: How to Save and Upload Meter Templates from One Device to Another Using ION Setup.

    Issue:
    Need to make meter configuration on two devices virtually identical.

    Product Line:
    ION 8300, 8400, 8500, 86xx, 75xx, 76xx, 73xx
    ION Setup

    Environment:
    Power Monitoring

    Cause:
    Meter is aging and needs replaced/ updated, or custom functionality has been programmed in one device and is needed in all installed devices.

    Resolution:
    *Warning: Take backups of any files prior to modifying them. Ensure the backups are in a location that will not be overwritten (i.e. the Desktop).

    You can copy (Save to PC) a configuration from one meter
    and paste (Send to Meter) it to another meter of the same type using ION Setup.

    Open ION Setup and connect to the original meter with the intended program.
    In the Setup Assistant, click the Template setup screen on the left as illustrated below.


    This screen has four tabs:
    • Save to PC lets you save a device configuration file (.dcf) containing custom
      configuration changes. You can make custom changes to one meter, upload the
      configuration file onto a workstation, and then download this file onto one or
      more other meters. You can only download the .dcf file to other meters of the
      same type.
      • NOTE Uploading or retrieving device configuration may take some time. If you abort the procedure, ION Setup
        provides you with a list of the copy procedures that were successfully completed before they were stopped.
    • Send to Meter lets you download to other meters a configuration file you have
      created or uploaded. The following formats are supported:
      •  ION Setup device configuration file (.dcf)
      •  ION Enterprise framework file (.fwn)
        • NOTE Framework (.fwn) files created in PEGASYS software are not supported.
    • Firmware upgrade lets you upgrade the meter to gain access to new or
      enhanced ION modules. When you perform a firmware upgrade, you are
      prompted to download the configuration file onto the meter. See the Upgrading
      PowerLogic ION Device Firmware
      technical note for more information on
      upgrading your device’s firmware.
    • Register Edit lets you to view and modify energy register values.
    Template Paste Options
    Some modules are not copied when upgrading firmware, saving to PC or sending
    to a meter. The setup registers of the following modules remain intact and must be
    configured manually:
    • Communications modules Security Option modules
    • Security User modules
    • Log Mail modules
    The Template Paste Options screen also allows you the option of retaining PT/CT,Clock/Nameplate settings and Energy Readings.

     
    • PT/CT Settings retains your setup registers for Power Meter modules.
    • Clock Settings retains your setup registers for the clock module.
    • Nameplate Settings retains your Owner, Tag1 and Tag2 settings.
    • Energy Readings retains the integrator values from your energy registers.
    • ITC Settings retains your instrument transformer correction settings.
    Communication settings may now need to be applied manually to fully replace original meter.
