187k6 is Engineering Notation. To program this value in the meter requires the value 187,600 to be placed in the correct register (In this case Analog Out #3, Zero Scale register).
The k symbolizes kilo in this example, and represents the following true engineering notation:

 

187k6

187.6 x 103

187,000

 

All Equivalent values.

Another symbol that maybe useful is M (or Mega) indicating power of 6, or times by 1 million (X x 106)
