      What is the part number of an unmarked / plain 30MBPR, 30 series bell press rocker mechanism?

      Unmarked 30MBPR would need to be done as a special/custom product. It is not available as off the shelf, stocked item.


      What is the life cycle of the 30MBP?

      The 30MBP has been tested to 12000 cycles.

      What Saturn plate will suit 30MBPR mech?

      Any Saturn plate that accommodates 30 series mechs will be suitable

      eg 4031VH to 4036VH

      Yes, it is the part number is 30MBPN12.

      Is there a 30MBPR marked open?

      Yes the part numberfor a 30MBPR marked open is a 30MBPR-OPEN-WE.

      Only available in white, not available in NZ.


      Do you do a 30MBPR in a higher amperage?

      No unfortunately if you want the rocker that is the only option.

      Is there a Clipsal 30 Series press mech in black?

      Yes, the 30MBPR is available in black (BK) - 30MBPR-BK
      See link for details:

      2031VETR3 is three wire switch. 
      Additional switches, 30mbp or the 30pbbp, can be installed in parallel to activate the timer from more than one location.

      Please go to the website via the following link www.clipsal.com/Trade/Products/ProductDetail and check under the Documentation Tab for more information.

      Which type of switch should be used for the RemoteTest/Hush feature on the 755PSMA2 Smoke alarm?

      Any 240V momentary switch, such as a 30MBP Bell Press Switch can be wired to either of the two new mounting bases 755RB or 755RFB up to 20m away. A relay can also be pulsed on momentarily via a security or home automation panel to activate the test/hush function. 

      Can i use a 30MBP as an extra wired switch for my roller door so it suits my light switches?

      An extra switch can be wired to a majority of roller doors. However, you will need to contact your roller door manufacturer and request your roller doors specifications as the specifications may vary between products. If you fail to do so we will be unable to provide the correct part as we are unsure of the specifications such as current, voltages, wave type (AC or DC).

      Do APC Network Management Cards (and Network Management Card embedded devices - Rack PDU, etc) support 1000mbps Ethernet connections?


      Do APC Network Management Cards (and Network Management Card embedded devices - Rack PDU, etc) support 1000mbps (AKA Gigabit) Ethernet connections? How about 10000mbps (10GBe connections)?

      Product Line
      • Network Management Card 1 - AP9617, AP9618, AP9619
      Devices with an embedded Network Management Card 1 include (but are not limited to): Metered/Switched Rack PDUs (AP78XX, AP79XX), Rack Automatic Transfer Switches (AP77XX, Environmental Monitoring Units (AP9320, AP9340, Netbotz 200).

      • 1000mbps/10000mbps (1GB/10GBe) networking environments
      • All firmware versions
      • All serial numbers

      Many users are upgrading their networking environments and looking to understand if APC Network Management Card devices support 1GB/10GB Ethernet connections.


      APC Network Management Card enabled devices support 10/100mbps Ethernet connections. Generally, 1GB Ethernet switches will support 100mbps (either by auto-negotation or configuration modification) but 10GB switches will not. Though, sometimes vendors offer special hardware modules that can provide 100mbps capability for 10GB Ethernet Switches.

      It is suggested that users can check the documentation on their networking equipment to find out if the equipment is capable of 10mbps or more commonly 100mbps and how it can be accomplished. If it can, then APC Network Management Cards will operate normally in a 100mbps environment.

      What are the differences between the various tripping classes of thermal overload?

      There are four classes of thermal overload relay:

      These class numbers indicate the trip characteristics from cold state, and should be selected according to the starting characteristics of the motor and its application. Below is a table giving the characteristics for each class

      Ir = Current setting of overload relay. This should be the Full Load Current (FLC or FLA) shown on motor rating plate. For the vast majority of applications 10A will be the first choice.

      How do I set up the sleep/wake-up on the ATV71/ATV61?

      Understanding PID wake up function

      Product Line:
      Altivar 61 and 71

      All models and serial numbers


      There is no specific rules for define when use one and when use other. It is dependent on the application but especially on the need and on the custom of the customer. Some people are going to think in % of error with regard to the PID reference while of the other one is going to think in value with regard to the PID feedback. These 2 parameters have the same purpose but the method is simply different.

      The following list the three ways to configure PID Sleeping/Wake up in menu 1.7 Application Function

      1.  [SLE] Sleep Offset Threshold (ATV61 only)
      2.  [rSL] PID wake up thresh. (ATV71 only)
      3.  [UPP] PID Wake up Thres. (ATV61 and ATV71)

      (1) Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE] – Frequency above low speed at which the
      drive wakes up.
      Set Low speed timeout [tSL]
      Set Low speed [LSP]
      Set Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE]
      Following operation at LSP +SLE for a defined period
      Low speed [LSP] = 20
      Low speed timeout [tSL] = 60
      Sleep Offset Thres. [SLE] = 10
      The drive will sleep when the drive runs at low speed for 60 seconds
      The drive will wake up when the speed reference is 30 hz.

      (2) [rSL] Restart error threshold – The difference between the set point [rPI]
      and the feedback [rPF].
      To wake up the drive, the PID error [rPE] must equal the Restart error
      threshold [rSL].
      If Set point [rPI] = 500 and Error [rSL] = 30
      The drive will wake up when the PID error [rPE] is 30 below the Set point

      (3) [UPP] Restart feedback threshold – The actual set point at which the drive
      will wake up.
      To wake up the drive the PID Feedback will be equal to the PID Wake up
      Thres [UPP].
      If Set point [rPI] = 500 and Wake up thres. [UPP] = 470
      The drive will wake up when the PID Feedback [rPF] = 470.

      Power Monitoring Expert - Database Scheduled Task Files and Supporting Files

      Database jobs are periodically run using scheduled tasks. These tasks can also be run manually via the PowerShell scripts which may aid in troubleshooting as the PowerShell console may give additional errors on why the tasks were originally failing. This article describes the alternative method used to manually run the tasks.

      Product Line
      Power Monitoring Expert 8.x
      Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.x

      Windows PowerShell

      Provides a better understanding on the database tasks and a way of trouble shooting in case of issues.

      Supporting Files
      The supporting files are located in ...\config\cfg\dbscheduledtasks\support\ folder and are used by the script files; they are not to be run by themselves.

      The one of importance is Configuration.ps1 which has the following three parameters and values:
           $locationForBackupFiles = "cfg\DBBackups\"
           $databaseSizeNotificationThresholdPercentage = 85
           $diagnosticsDaysToKeep = 30

      Script Files
      There are four script files and they are located in ...\config\cfg\dbscheduledtasks\ folder.
      Each script file requires a database name to be passed as a parameter.  This is identified by opening the file and observing the first line:

      How to Manually Execute a Tasks
      Note: Powershell is required for manual execution of the scripts.
      1. Open Powershell
        • Click Start and search for 'Windows PowerShell (x86)'
        • Right-click on 'Windows PowerShell (x86)' (Note: Be sure to open the (x86) version of PowerShell)
        • Select Run as administrator.
      2. Navigate to the \Power Monitoring Expert\config\cfg\DbScheduledTasks directory within PowerShell
        • Locate the exact location of the DbScheduledTasks directory using Windows Explorer
        • Use the change directory command, cd, to change to the DbScheduleTasks directory
      For example, to change the PowerShell directory to C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\Power Monitoring Expert DC Ed\config\cfg\DbScheduledTasks as seen in the below example, type the following command: cd 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\Power Monitoring Expert\config\cfg\DbScheduledTasks' 
      1. Once in the proper directory, run the command corresponding to the desired database task. The tables below contain the commands and required database parameters required to run the script manually.
