Which trip unit and BCM date code are configured for a 2 wire modbus system?
Proxima (Powerpact P, R, Masterpact)
Micrologic P and H firmware needs to be 2010-AK or later in order to set the BCM ULP to 2w+ULP mode.
Also, the BCM ULP needs to have the gray connector which will have a firmware higher than 3.x.x.
On a BCM configured for 4w Modbus, if jumpers are placed between E3 and E5, and between E4 and E6, and the mode is set to 4w on the trip unit, it will work as 2w without ULP.
Breakers shipped November 2015 and after have BCM's configured for 2w + ULP. Date code approx. 15441 and later.
Applying BCM programmed for 2 wire modbus to a 4 wire modbus system
Powerpact and Masterpact breakers with modbus communications
Applies to trip units with BCM
- With a newer Micrologic P or H trip unit you may re-program the BCM module to 4w. This requires firmware version 2010AK or newer.
- If the trip unit does not have this option or if it is an A trip unit, you may use a 2w to 4w converter, CNV-100. See the Attached Instruction Bulletin for more details.
- Schneider sales offices can also order a BCM programmed for 4w modbus. Order the module number, 33106 in Q2C with a note that you want it programmed for "4w Modbus."
BCM 33106 profile is available only on Q2C Tool. Regional Field Offices to support order submission for customers who are unable to access Q2C.

When editing or saving a report in Repgen you will see a “Connection failed” screen like the following:
Manually entering the "Report" login with password "rep0rter!" allows you to edit the report. However, the next time you edit the same report, Reporter will prompt you for the same connection information.
Also, you will see an “*ERROR* Error 3704” message in Reporter when you try to run a report that had been previously saved.
You will see this issue if you upgraded to PME 7.2 from older versions of the software (e.g. SPM 7.0, SPM 7.0.1) and kept the same SQL Server instance and ION databases in place.
Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.x
The password for the “Report” login that is used to connect to SQL Server in order to retrieve data for Reporter reports has changed. As a result, when upgrading to PME 7.2 from a previous version of the software, you will see errors when trying to edit or generate previously-saved reports
Change the “Report” login password in SQL Server to “rep0rter!” This will allow all new reports generated in PME 7.2 to run properly. You will be able to edit reports without the Connection Info dialog popping up.
If you are using reports from your previous version of the software in PME 7.2, you will also have to edit them manually to change the stored login information to “Report”/ “rep0rter!”

Are StruxureWare DCE or NetBotz vulnerable to CVE-2017-7494
(Samba related vulnerability)?
- StruxureWare Data Center Expert (DCE)
- StruxureWare DCE v7.X
- NetBotz (botzware) v4.X
Schneider Electric has become aware of a critical vulnerability in the daemon that offers file sharing capabilities in Samba. Samba is a suite of tools that helps in the interoperability between UNIX with Microsoft Windows allowing Linux, Mac and FreeBSD users to set up and share folders on Windows computers using the server message block (SMB) protocol. Experts say the vulnerability can be exploited with just one line of code and has the potential to spread quickly. Samba versions 3.5 (released March 1, 2010) and onwards are impacted.
The vulnerability allows an attacker to open a SMB share (TCP/445), upload a shared library to the writable share, and then cause the server to load and execute it.
CVE ID: CVE-2017-7494: https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2017-7494
Samba Disclosure: https://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2017-7494.html
- NetBotz 4.X is not vulnerable to this issue because an unaffected version of Samba is used.
- StruxureWare DCE v7.X runs on Linux but does not export SMB shares, so it is not vulnerable. Since the Linux OS has samba packages installed that are necessary for client services, security scanners may continue to alert on the presence of CVE-2017-7494. The next release of DCE v7.X available later in 2017 will include the latest patched libraries.
Cyber Security is an important element of Schneider Electrics' commitment to software quality. Regular vulnerability assessment and further investigation is ongoing on other Schneider Electric platforms in addition to the above and will be detailed if discovered.
Missing native shutdown battery options in Windows
Back-UPS and Smart-UPS
All supported Windows OS
When viewing Power Options (go to Control Panel - Power Options) you may find that the configurable battery shutdown options are missing / not available. This may be caused by the HID driver (Human Interface Device) being updated from HID UPS to APC UPS or APC Battery BackUP.
If you are no longer using PowerChute software and want to utilize native battery options you may need to roll / revert the HID Driver to HID UPS.
The featured video explains how to revert / restore HID UPS Driver that will allow for the configuration of native battery shutdown option.
For information on how to configuring Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2016 to safely shutdown without using APC's PowerChute software please review FAQ FA159653
The current ION Enterprise 6.0 installer does not directly support installing ION Enterprise with SQL Server 2008. ION Enterprise will install, but Web Reporter and a number of other components will not function. It is possible to perform a series of manual steps that include using the provided RS2008ConfigurationWizard, and end up with a functional ION Enterprise system. Part of the procedure requires the user to download and install three Microsoft SQL Server components required by ION Enterprise. This is detailed in the attached document.
This procedure should only be attempted by those familiar and comfortable with both SQL Server and ION Enterprise. It is important to read and understand the attached document.
Note that SQL Server 2008 Express IS NOT SUPPORTED. All testing has been done using Windows Server 2008 64 bit. It is assumed that SQL Server 2008 R2 is installed on the target machine prior to installing ION Enterprise, and before running through the procedure described in the attached document.
Also note that ION Enterprise with SQL Server 2008 has not been through a formal development/test cycle, so it is possible that issues may arise that have not yet been encountered. Because of this, this configuration should not be used for critical systems.
Additional Information: The supported platform for this procedure is Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit with SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit.
December 23, 2010: The document has been updated to include the distributed database server case, and RS2008ConfigurationWizard has been updated to address the issue with ad-hoc database trimming (RESL 203738).
March 30, 2011: The document has been updated to include information about setting the Connection Manager service to manual to avoid possible communications problems after reboot.
November 23, 2011: RS2008ConfigurationWizard has been updated to include a version of the Energy Cost Report with fixes for RS 2008 (RESL206726), and a fix for the ION_SystemLog TRIM job it introduced (RESL204590). It also includes the option to delete & re-create the RS databases if they already exist (TRUE by default). The document has been updated appropriately.

It has been determined the AP92200 ISX Manager has a software issue that denies access to the ISXM server when accessing via the ISXM client. This will occur without regard to the version of ISXM software.
InfraStruxure Manager - AP92200
This issue is caused by the expiration of the InfraStruXure Manager client side SSL certificate. The certificate expired on Jun 15 18:53:43 2013 GMT. It was not known the certificate was set to expire on this date, or at any other time. Additionally, it is now known the InfraStruXure Manager server side certificate will expire on Jan 06 2014.
Backround and Resolution:
The SSL certificates ensure secure communication between the InfraStruXure Manager client, and InfraStruXure Manager server. Since the client side certificate has expired, access is denied when users attempt to access the InfraStruXure Manager server via the client.
The InfraStruXure Manager server will continue to monitor devices, provide alerts and warnings, and operate correctly in all other ways as expected, even with this issue.
If you have an immediate need to access the InfraStruXure Manager server, you can set the clock on the client machine back to a date before the SSL certificate’s expiration date of Jun 15 18:53:43 2013 GMT. Once the client machine is restarted, access to the InfraStruXure Manager server is allowed, since only the client side SSL certificate is expired. Setting the clock back will affect the report function, since the timestamp for reports is based on the client. It is suggested as a temporary measure only, not a permanent solution.
InfraStruXure Manager was discontinued in 2010, and replaced with StruxureWare Data Center Expert. To fully remediate the issue caused by the expired InfraStruXure Manager SSL certificate, migrate your InfraStruXure Manager v4.7 to StruxureWare Data Center Expert. For more information, contact your local Schneider sales person.
If you already own a StruxureWare Data Center Expert server, you can use the InfraStruXure Manager Migration Utility to migrate settings and other important data from your InfraStruXure Manager v4.7. When migration is complete, the StruxureWare Data Center Expert server will manage devices previously managed by the InfraStruXure Manager. Contact Technical Support for information or assistance.
Alternatively, you can update the SSL certificates on your InfraStruXure Manager v4.7. If you have an InfraStruXure Manager version earlier than v4.7, you must upgrade to v4.7 before updating the certificates. These certificates are set to expire in 10 years, on about Jun 17 2023. No further certificates will be provided. Contact Technical Support for instructions and the certificate files.
Warning: You can migrate your InfraStruXure Manager v4.7 to StruxureWare Data Center Expert v7.2.1 only if the SSL certificates have not been updated. If you update the certificates, you cannot migrate to StruxureWare Data Center Expert until v7.2.2 is released, currently scheduled for September 2013.

ENHANCED INTERACTIVE MODE
(XWs manufactured prior to 2010, Firmware upgrade will be required for this systems ? Please call Tech support for support and verification)
XW6048 / XW4548 / XW4024 - Firmware Build 1.05 BN11 or newer
MPPT60-150 - Firmware Build 1.05 BN6 or newer
MPPT80 - Existing Maiden Firmware supports it
GRID SUPPORT VOLTS (GSV) = Defined as the reference marker: Level to which the batteries will be discharged when the inverter is selling power to the grid or supporting the power grid by providing additional power to the loads.
(Note reference marker is not a target voltage!)
Ensure GRID SUPPORT function and SELL both are both ENABLED.
To enter this mode, set GSV at least 4V higher than the BULK voltage of the XW Inv/Chg
As mentioned above, this does not mean the inverter will target the higher voltage, rather, it tells the inverter to follow the output of the controller.
The XW MPPT should be set for 3stage charge cycle and the Inverter should be 2StageNoFloat charge cycle.
UNDERSTANDING E.I. MODE
The XW Inv/Chg will follow the output of the XW MPPT (must be networked) when selling, and does a better job of keeping the batteries full (exits approx 0.5V below MPPT Float voltage), only selling what is available above the fully charged battery bank.
With the XW Inv/Chg in 2stageNoFloat and GSV at 64V
During a sunny day, once your batteries are fully charged, all excess solar power will be re-directed to your inverter to support your loads and/or sell back to the grid.
Once you go into low light conditions, the system will go into AC Pass Thru and the grid now takes over supporting the loads. It will not sell from your batteries as your battery voltage will always be way below the high GSV value.
FIXED BATTERY VOLTAGE (STATIC)
SELL criteria - Battery Voltage must be higher that the GSV (Grid Support Volt) value.
If the battery voltage drops about 1V below the GSV value, (example when you have low light conditions) - The system will exit SELL mode and go into AC PASS THRU mode.
If you continue to use old firmware, or when using wind, or a different brand charge controller, it will be necessary to set GSV about 0 .5V lower than Float Voltage
Note, if you go into low light conditions, it will sell from your batteries and this will continue until the battery voltage drop below the GSV value. (see sell criteria above)
Recharge Volts is temperature compensated, and increases when battery temperature drops (if using a Battery Temp Sensor), set Recharge Volts to 48V to prevent nuisance charge cycles from occurring during evening hours.
When using Repgen to generate a report for a large number of devices (i.e. > 50), it will generate the following error and the report will not complete successfully.
Run-time error '9':
Subscription out of range
Struxureware Power Monitoring
Power Monitoring Expert
Any ION software where the excel based RepGen is used for reporting.
There is a pre-defined Named Range of cells in the report that tells the macros where to look for the names of the datasheets to process - appropriately named "Datasheets".
When a report is edited and OK is clicked, it actually deletes a bunch of empty rows out of the report. Usually this is not an issue because a report is not edited often, and normally very few queries are defined. In some cases though the situation can be exacerbated by a large amount of queries, so each time the report is edited the named range shrinks faster.
Sometimes, the Named Range is smaller than the number of queries added to the report, as in some cases of the EN50160 report.
When a large # of devices is chosen in the EN50160 report, the report can easily have > 600 datasheets as a result.
The VB macros look for all the datasheets it can find within this named range and deletes ones that it can't.
Which means, that because the Named Range Datasheets used by the macros stops around row 600, then the remaining datasheets in the report are deleted and disregarded.
Then, when the macros go looking for one of these deleted sheets again, the error 'Subscript out of range' which really means 'can t find the sheet I'm looking for' is generated.
1.) Open the appropriate report template in excel.
Select the report in RepGen and click Preview.
-or- Find the report in the ION install directory ...config\reports
2.) Expand the 'Datasheets' Named Range to include more rows.
- unhide sheet |PRIVATE|Datasheets
Format -> Sheet -> Unhide
- Expand the Named Range
Insert -> Name -> Define...
- Select 'Datasheets' name.
- in 'Refers to:' field, change it to include more rows - $A3:$A606 increase to A$65000 (for example)
Excel 2007, 2010, 2013:
- Expand the Named Range
Formulas tab -> Name Manger
- Select Datasheets in the Name Manager Window
- in 'Refers to:' field, change it to include more rows - $A3:$A606 increase to A$65000 (for example)
- click Close and it will ask you to save select Yes
3.) Save the Excel document (file type should remain xls)
The report can now be edited without issue.
