What parts are in the spare knob pack PDL 620P?

The PDL 620P Dimmer Knob Pack comes with a small dimmer knob and a large dimmer knob.
 

Is the PDL620K trailing or leading edge?

The 620K is leading edge.

What is the ratings for a PDL 620K Rotary Dimmer Switch Leading Edge

Ratings are:
Voltage - 230 / 240V a.c.  50Hz
Maximum Load - 1000W
Minimum Load - 150W

What is the issue if a PDL 620K dimmer is humming, being used with electronic transformer at 700watts

As the 620K is a leading edge dimmer it is not suitable for electronic transformers.
The transformer should be changed for a wire wound or the dimmer should be replaced with trailing edge, though as we only do 450w rated dimmers the load would have to be split between two dimmers.
The PDL620K is no longer available.

ION 6200 Meter Replacement Power Supply

Issue
The ION 6200 meter is inoperable (will not start). The power supply unit is not operating correctly and is required to be replaced.

Product Line
PowerLogic ION 6200 meter

Environment
PowerLogic ION 6200 meter power supply unit

Cause
The ION 6200 meter power supply needs to be replaced. The end-user is not required to send the meter back to the factory for an RMA.

Resolution
The power supply unit may be replaced by ordering one of the part numbers below:

P620PB - Standard P240 plug-in power supply (100-240VAC/110-300VDC)
P620PC - P24 plug-in power supply (20-60VDC)

ION 6200 Sample Rate Information

Issue

Information on the sampling rate of the ION6200

Product Line

ION6200 meters

Environment

All released meter firmware

Discussion

The sampling rate of the ION 6200 is 64 samples/cycle. With this sampling rate, the meter should be able to calculate harmonics up the 31st harmonic.
However, for the THD calculation, only the first harmonics are taken into account; this has been verified with firmware.

In addition, the ION 6200 is a blind cycle meter which means that...since the meter takes 64 samples per cycle, it actually uses all 64 samples to calculate the data.
These samples are locked to the frequency of V1.

 

6200: Reading energy values off the front panel display.

Issue
How to read energy values off the front panel display of ION 6200 meter.
 
Product Line
ION 6200
 
Environment
ION 6200 front display reading energy values
 
Cause
Energy values are often directly read off the front panel display. However, the 6200 Installation and Operation Guide do not explicitly describe how to get these energy values.
 
Resolution
The KWh front panel display constitutes of three rows. Say that the first row of the KWh display is showing 'aaa', the second row shows 'bbb' and the third row shows 'ccc', then the total KWh read by the meter is aaa bbb ccc KWh.

The 6200 is hard-coded to roll over at 100 000 000 KWh. As the KWh starts accumulating, the third row on the display shows an increment in value. When the value goes over 999 KWh, the second row is used to display the KWh values up to 999 999 KWh. Eventually, when the value goes over 999 999 KWh, the top row is also used to display the KWh until the KWh rolls over at 100 000 000 KWh.
 
Example: As shown in picture below (from ION 6200 front display), the total kwh accumulated is = 270,050 kwh

My Micrologic 5.0P or 6.0P or H trip unit will not allow me to adjust the on-screen settings. What is the problem?

Issue:
Micrologic Power or Harmonic trip unit won't let me change the on-screen settings.  What is the problem?

Product Line:
Masterpact, Powerpact

Environment:
5.0P, 6.0P, 5.0H, 6.0H

Resolution:
The trip unit settings cannot be adjusted via the menu buttons on the trip unit screen unless the switch cover is OPEN.  

Micrologic 5.0P 6.0P 5.0H 6.0H trip units are not recording trip history events.

Issue:
Not recording any of the trip values in trip history, only says Integr Inst and no date

Product Line:
Micrologic 5.0P 6.0P 5.0H 6.0H trip units

Environment:
Powerpact P, R frame,  and Masterpact NT NW

Cause:
Unpowered trip unit or primary injecting breaker while FFTK or HHTK plugged in to the trip unit

Resolution:
The trip history will not record values on an unpowered trip unit (not externally powered with a 24Vdc power supply). After a breaker trip, the trip unit turns off and does not have time to record the trip history information.
The end user will need to add 24Vdc to the trip unit in order to utilize this function, on trip unit terminals F2 (+) and F1(-).

The trip history will not record values while using the FFTK (Full Function Test Kit) or HHTK (Hand Held Test Kit) to test or inhibit.
Plugging in the FFTK or HHTK just to power the trip unit, while primary injection testing, will allow it to recorded a trip history.

Parts needed to upgrade a Masterpact NW breaker from a Micrologic 3.0 or 5.0 to the 3.0A 5.0P 6.0P 5.0H or 6.0H trip units

Inquiry:
Which parts are needed to upgrade a Masterpact NW breaker from a standard trip unit to a Micrologic 3.0A 5.0P 6.0P 5.0H or 6.0H?

Product Line:
Masterpact NW

Resolution:
Both fixed and drawout breakers need connector S33101 and the trip unit:
3.0A S141A
5.0A S143A
6.0A S144A
5.0P S163A
6.0P S164A
5.0H S173A
6.0H S174A

A neutral CT is required if the breaker is applied on a 4-wire system and new trip unit is a 6.0A, 6.0P, or 6.0H.
A neutral CT is also required if the breaker is applied on a 4-wire system and the new trip unit is a 5.0P being used for ground-fault alarm.
See attached table for catalog numbers.

Fixed circuit breakers also need the following parts in addition to connector S33101:
External Voltage Sensing S47506 (P and H trip units only, if Voltage sensing is required)
Secondary Disconnects (3) S47075 and (1) S47074
BCM S47405 (if modbus is required)

Drawout circuit breakers also need the following parts in addition to connector S33101:

Can ground fault be disabled on a Micrologic 6.0A, 6.0P or 6.0H trip unit on a Masterpact NT/NW or Powerpact P/R circuit breaker?

Issue:
Can the ground fault pickup be disabled on a Micrologic 6.0A (Ammeter), 6.0P (Power) or 6.0H (Harmonic) trip unit?
 
Product Line:
Micrologic, Masterpact, Powerpact
 
Environment:
6.0 (A, P, H) trip units on Powerpact P- and R-frames, Masterpact NW- and NT-frames

Cause:
Need to disable ground fault on a breaker with LSIG trip functions
 
Resolution:  
No. To eliminate ground fault protection, replace the trip unit with a 5.0 type.  
For ground fault alarm, replace the trip unit with a 5.0P trip unit (S163A) and use a M2C (S64273) or M6C (S64204) programmable contact module.  If replacing a standard trip unit (not A, P or H), the 12-pin connector for the trip unit (kit S33101 for Masterpact, S33100 for Powerpact) must also be ordered.  

Note:  if ground needs to be temporarily disabled for primary injection testing, refer to FA98682.

Video: How do I configure IO boards and points on a SCADAPack RTU and then test them with Series E Configurator software?


Issue: Need to use Series E Configurator software to configure the IO boards to communicate correctly with your SCADAPack RTU processor board. Need to use Series E Configurator software to configure system points, derived points and physical points on the IO boards correctly. Need to use Point Browser tool in Series E Configurator software to test reading from and writing to configured points.
Product Lines:
Series E Configurator
SCADAPack RTU
Environment:
Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10, on 32-bit or 64-bit Operating System
Cause: N/A
Solution:
  1. Factory reset your RTU
  2. Start Series E Configurator,
  3. Use USB communication setting
  4. Read the RTU Configuration
  5. Open IO-> SCADAPack IO on the left-hand side of Series E Configurator window
  6. When you read the configuration of a factory reset rtu, the modules will not be automatically created
  7. Add a 6601 composite IO module if you are using a 535e RTU.
  8. If we’re using remote IO you’re going to need to change the address so that each address is unique so that you can target each IO board correctly.
  9. Now add another module. You’re going to add the 6201 IO board these are the IO on the actual processor of the 535e on the top rack. Now you can see that your physical IO has been created and it correlates to the physical points on the SCADAPack.
  10. Map the physical points to the dnp points for all physical IO. So just type in 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 for DIs 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 etc. so it’s easy to keep track of their point numbers.
  11. Write the configuration to the SCADAPack. Once the configuration is written open the Points pages and you can see that your physical points have been mapped to dnp points here.
  12. Double click a point to observe the properties.
  13. Create a point from the Points page. To do this you can either create a range or a single point. You must select your point type. For this point we're going to select system and point number 50005. This point correlates to the point the which represents the 6601 IO firmware version.
  14. Open your point browser and start creating some points to test: DIs 1 and 2 and the Dos and AIs from the 6601 module; the last DO from the 6201 module; and the system point you created.
  15. Select the read button and all your values will update.
  16. Make a comment. This is just a point description and this will come straight through to the point browser.
  17. Observe that point 50005 matches your IO firmware.
  18. Test your binary values by writing a 1 to some of them and checking if the corresponding led comes on. If it doesn’t, go to controller setting as and check the led power always on the box and write the configuration. Once it's written and you’ve confirmed the binary points were written to the SCADAPack you should see the led come on.

Environment:
 ION 6200
 
Cause:
Time Constant, kT, is the number of units (kWh,kVah,kVARh) per output transition.
 
Resolution:
 The digital output uses KY pulsing. This means that the relay changes from open to closed or from closed to open whenever kT units have been measured (20 transitions/second maximum).
 

Do the 73xx TRAN (Transducer) or 6200 TRAN meters support multiple displays (RMD - Remote Meter Display)?

No, each TRAN meter can only support a single RMD module since the display acts as a 'Master'; there can only be one master on the same line.

Can the 6200 be used as an Ammeter, without any Voltage Inputs?

Yes, the 6200 can be used as an ammeter without any voltage inputs, but there may be some accuracy issues depending on the frequency.

For proper accuracy, the sampling rate is set by the frequency read from V1, otherwise, this value defaults to 60 Hz.  If you are operating this in a 50 Hz environment, you may obtain better accuracy by having a 50 Hz input into V1.  If the power supply is the same as the line frequency, the power supply leads can be connected as follows to inject the proper frequency to the meter:
V1 = L+
Vref = N-
G = G

NOTE: this is a workaround, so we cannot guarantee that the meter will be within specification.  Additionally, the meter will not read correct values for anything other than current.  Values that depend on the Voltage Inputs, such as Power and Energy will not be valid.

These trip units have integral ground fault protection.

Cause:
How to test the ground fault trip to satisfy NEC230-95 (c).

Resolution:
The Micrologic 6.0A, 6.0P and 6.0H trip units have a ground fault test button on the front of the trip unit that can be used to satisfy NEC230-95(c). The button is white with a ``T`` in the center of it, and is located between the Ii Instantaneous adjustment dial, and the port for the secondary injection test kit cable. See the picture below showing the test button, and the instructions below for the testing procedure to meet NEC230-95 (c). The latest requirements may require primary injection testing to verify the operation of the ground fault circuit. Your local inspector will indicate if this is required.

Equipment Ground-Fault Trip Functions Testing
Paragraph 230-95 (c) of the National Electrical Code requires that all equipment ground-fault protection systems be tested when first installed. With the circuit breaker closed, test the ground fault trip functions. For instructions on how to close circuit breaker, refer to the circuit breaker installation instructions shipped with the circuit breaker. As of the 2017 NEC230-95(c) the ground fault system needs to primary injection tested. The Test button as described below is no longer accepted for the initial acceptance testing. However, if subsequent testing is desired the Test button can be used.

Testing ground fault trip with the T test button
1. Make sure the trip unit is powered (it is powered when the trip unit screen shows a display). This can be done by either of the following methods:
  • Apply 24Vdc to terminals F2 and F1 in the green terminal strip on top of the trip unit (F2 positive). The trip unit will be powered all the time.
  • Connect the trip unit to the Full Funciton Test Kit or Hand Held Test Kit. When the test kit is turned on, the trip unit is powered. 
2. Press the T ground-fault test button. Circuit breaker should trip.
3. If circuit breaker does not trip, contact the local field office.

ION 6200 Digital Output - operational details not covered in the product documentation

Product Line
ION6200

Environment
Digital Outputs

Resolution
As energy accumulates, the ION 6200 digital output toggles from Open to Close, or from Close to Open, instead of pulsing. This is called KY pulsing. By default, the ION6200 meter has two Pulser modules preset to send pulses every 1 kWh and every 1 kVARh to the 2 solid state relays on the meter. The settings on the front for the defaults are out1 = wH, tc 1 = 1 and out2 =VArh, tc = 1. Notice that both out1 and out2 do not show k(kilo), but all out settings are in k(kilo), and that the tc(time constant) setting is also referenced as kT in some cases.
Here are some parameter limits and operational constraints to keep in mind for the ION6200 meter:

  • Maximum Transition frequency = 20 per second
  • Minimum Period between Transition = 30ms, fixed
  • Kt Value must to set to a value greater than 0.1 for the digital output to operate correctly and accurately. This is due to bounds on the internal accuracy of the values maintained within the meter.

Note also that the digital output toggles in batches at the beginning of each second. Thus, the digital output operates in bursts potentially at the beginning of each new 1 second boundary for no more than 600ms (20 transition x 30ms) in each one-second cycle. Calculations can be made to show that this implies that accuracy of measurements derived from this meter's pulsing capability must be averaged over at least a 15 minute period in order for them to reliably fall within the 0.5 accuracy class of this meter. This is not a reflection of the accuracy of the meter's measurement capability so much as a consequence of the specific way that this meter outputs measurement data via its digital outputs.

ION 6200: Disable hardware lock on the meter

How to Accuracy Test the ION 6200 Based on Digital Outputs

Follow this procedure to test the kWh accuracy of the ION 6200:

  1. Acquire a kWh test set (e.g. Rotek brand).
  2. Wire the meter.
  3. Power up the 6200 (for maximum accuracy wait until the unit hits the operating temperature of @41C).
  4. Use digital out one (DO1 default setting is for kWh pulsing at 1.0 Wh per pulse).
  5. Run test and obtain results. Compare the DO pulse count to the Wh count on the Rotek.
  6. This value should be within boundaries specified by the accuracy specifications to which the meter conforms (+/- 0.5%).

NOTE: In order the for the precision of the measurement based on the pulses received from the ION 6200 be high enough to reliably show the accuracy of the meter, our engineers recommend that the duration or total sample period of the test be no shorter than 1000 seconds (16 minutes and 40 seconds). Longer test durations are recommended if possible for even higher precision of the measured accuracy of the meter. Note that this minimum duration of the test period applies regardless of the pulse weight setting (i.e. kT value). This last statement presumes, naturally, that the kT value is set low enough that at least two pulses are received over the duration of the test.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Other meters in our range(e.g.. ION 8600) have a calibration pulser module that was developed for this style of testing. Meters with the calibration pulser module generate pulses within milliseconds of a new energy threshold or boundary having been reached as set by the pulse weight, kT. The calibration pulser module is currently not available for the ION 6200 and therefore pulses are only generated after each new evaluation of the energy register on the meters regular 1 second processing cycle . Thus, in the worst case, pulses to signal a new energy threshold or boundary having been reached may be delayed up to 1 full second. It is this fact that necessitates a long test period to ensure that the precision of the measurement is high enough to be used as a valid indicator of the meter's accuracy.

Can the power supply of a 6200 meter operate over 480VAC?

From the design perspective of the 480V power supply, any voltage greater then 480V pushes the limits of the power supply. If it is desired to provide an input slightly above 480VAC (i.e. 495VAC RMScontinuous) it may reduce the lifetime of the power supply and is therefore not recommended.

ION6200 unresponsive immediately after a power up

Issue: 
ION6200 meter becomes unresponsive. The user may notice that pressing the buttons on the ION6200 does nothing.

Product Line:
ION6200 Series Meter

Environment:
Power Metering

Cause:
The RS-485 bus may momentarily become unusable as the 6200 powers up on a rs-485 network.    This is due to hardware being in an un-initialized state until the code runs.

The RS-485 transceiver starts in transmit more and last for about 300ms.    

Resolution:
Allow 10 seconds to pass before trying to use the meter after the meter is powered on. 
 
 

Does setting up a Micrologic for 3p 3w cause it to ignore the neutral if one is connected? And if so, does it apply to metering, protection, or both?In other words, what is the difference for metering and protection for setting a trip unit up for 3p 3w vs 3p 4w?

Issue:
Circuit Breaker trip units and adjustments

Product Line:
Molded Case Breakers

Environment:
Micrologice Solid State types

Cause:
Application on 3w system

Resolution:
Setting for 3p3w will cause both metering and protection functions to ignore any input from the neutral CT if present. 3p4w will check for neutral CT input and factor it into GF calculations.

Why would the FFTK pass a Micrologic breaker on all functions except for Short-Time?

Issue:
Micrologic breaker fails short time test on FFTK

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:

Powerpact P, R, Masterpact NT, NW

Resolution:
If the Inst. setting is too close to the short-time setting, the test kit may inject enough current to trip the breaker on Instantaneous.  Because an instantaneous trip is so fast the trip time will be wrong and the test kit will indicate that it failed.  Proper testing requires setting the Instantaneous function to at least 200% above the short-time.

Is it possible to defeat or disable ground fault on Masterpact NW with Micrologic 6.0A for primary injection testing?

Issue:  
Is there a way to defeat or disable ground fault on a Masterpact NW breaker for primary injection testing?  

Product line:  
Power circuit breakers

Environment:  
Masterpact NW circuit breakers with Micrologic trip units

Resolution:  
There are two ways to defeat ground fault on the NW breaker for primary injection testing.  You can use the Hand Held Test Kit, Cat. No. S33594, or the Full Function Test Kit, Cat. No. S33595 OR you can use the looping method to counter the single phase current during primary injection testing.  See the attached Data Bulletin 0600DB9901 page 35, for looping method, or FAQ FA265488.

How to write data in an ION Meter configured as a Modbus Slave

Issue:
End user would like to write data to any ION Meter that is configured as a modbus slave
 
Product Line:
ION75X0 RTU, ION8800, ION8600, ION8650 ION7550/ION7650, ION7300, ION8500, ION8400, ION8300, ION7500/ION7600
 
Environment:
Modbus Communications
 
Cause:
The ION meter configured as Modbus slave can easily provide data to its master using Modbus slave modules. It doesn't make any difference if the master is another ION meter (using "Modbus Master Device" modules) or a third party product. This articles detail the actions for the slave ION meter to receive information from the master.
 
Resolution
ION Modules offer the availability for a slave meter to accept inputs. To do so, create External Pulse, External Boolean or External Numeric modules, depending on the type of information you need to import. All these "External" modules are available over Modbus. The map is given in the "Common_Modbus_Registers.pdf", starting on page 27. These modules can be modified over Modbus the same way as in a Vista diagram.
For example, to trigger the "External Pulse #1", write the number "1" at the Modbus address 42001.
 
To change the value of the "External Boolean #1", the address is 42201. Write "0" to turn to OFF state, and write "1" to turn to ON state.
 
To write a value in "External Numeric #1", simply write a value at the Modbus registers 42301 and 42302. The number needs to be in Signed Integer 32-bits format (42301 is the high order word, 42302 the low order word).
 
Note: Standard Security must be disabled for changes be made to the meter. If Standard Security is enabled, a "Modbus Exception # 3 - Illegal Data" message will be received when trying to write the register.

Note: The ION 6200 doesn't include ION modules. For Modbus communication with an ION 6200 refer to the "ION6200 Registers.pdf" attached below

For more information on the topics discussed in this afticle please take a look at the "Modbus and ION Technology.pdg" attached to this FAQ. 

 

My kWd value is correct on the front panel, but incorrect via Modbus.

Most likely what has happened is that the value being inputted to the Modbus slave module has overloaded the 16bit register. The kWd value inside the meter is a floating point value, while communications is 16 bits. The default Modbus register scaling is (x1) for Power Parameters (PPS register sets the scaling).
To eliminate the problem you may need to change the PPS scaling registers from the default (x1) value to a more appropriate value related to the system.

 

i.e.: by changing the value to 0.001, you will effectively be dividing the kWd value by 1000 for transmission in the Modbus register.

 



 

More Information

See Step 9 (page 18) for information on programming PPS scaling on the ION 6200 meter.

How is the 6200 affected if operated below it's minimum temperature specification (-4ºF / -20ºC)?

Below the rated OPERATING temperature (-20ºC = -4º Fahrenheit), the correct operation of the meter cannot be guaranteed. Accuracy will suffer and depending on how low the temperature gets, different components may not function correctly. There arent specific temperature values for anything other than the LCDs, which operate to -25ºC.
Below the rated STORAGE temperature (-40ºC = -40º Fahrenheit), all components will be suspect and the meter may not work at all. Damage is possible to the display and other components.

If the temperature only dips below operating temperature occasionally, and for short periods, it should be fine. Continued operation at cold temperatures or cold startups may cause problems for the meter.

Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) is not available in the ION6200 series Power Meters when they are set to Delta or Direct Delta Volts Mode.

ION 6200 series Power Meters do support THD functionality with Enhanced Package 2, however, due to limitations in available memory space, this feature is not available when the Volts Mode is set to Delta or Delta Direct. Hence, when the ION6200 meter is used in these Volts Modes, the meter will return '0' for THD values both on the front panel display and through communications with the device.
It is recommended to use the PM750 or PM800 series meters instead if it is desired to get the THD values used in Delta or Delta Direct configurations.

What is the “Format” of “Enumerated” registers in the ION6200 Modbus Map?

Issue:
A user may be trying to read or write to a register on an ION6200, and needs to know if it is a 16 or 32 bit register, and if it is signed or unsigned.
 
Product Line:
ION 6200
 
Environment:
Reading and writing registers.
 
Cause:
The ION6200 can have a scale applied to voltage, current, and power readings, and the scaled value can be read over communications, while a non scaled reading is shown on the meter. Software applications such as a Building Management System (BMS) may need specific details of these registers in order to read and write to them.
 
Resolution:
As documented on Page 11 of PowerLogic ION6200 Serial Communications Protocol and ION / Modbus Register Map, "All ION6200 numeric parameters are represented in Unsigned 16‐bit Integer Format".
