      Onboard logging

      The maximum number of values PM556X can record is 14 parameters. The attached spreadsheet will automatically calculate the number of days the meter will log, based on the parameters and the frequency of logging. Select the parameters (individual dropdown menus) in the spreadsheet you would like to log on the meter. 

      NOTE: The meters can be configured to Hold and Fill or Circular memory. If the meter is set to Circular memory, then the data log will begin over writing the oldest data entries and recording new values once the data log reaches maximum capacity. Hold and Fill will not over write any entries and will stop recording data once the data log is full.

      See the attached spreadsheet for memory calculation.

      PM5500 Energy (kWH) values are no longer being logged in Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.2

      Data from the Energy/Demand log (onboard the PM5500) stop logging in PME. However, the current and voltage data are populated.

      Product Line
      PM5500 series (PM5560, PM5563)

      Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.2

      By default, the PM5500 only logs the energy and demand quantities onboard the device. The PME device driver itself enables the logging of the current and voltage data (PC based logging).

      This issue is corrected by applying the following:
      1. Upgrade the device to the latest firmware. The latest firmware and upgrade procedure are available in FA299853.
      2. Update the device driver on the Power Monitoring Expert server: PM5500 Series SE Driver for PME 7.2.2.
      3. Apply PME 7.2.2 Cumulative Update 2 to the Power Monitoring Expert server. PME 7.2.2 CU2 is available in FA240221.
      Another option is to upgrade PME to the latest version (PME 8.2) instead of performing steps 2 and 3 above. This will require a new license.

      After configuring the IP address and verifying it was saved, the IP address displayed is not what was entered previously. This issue may also appear after experiencing a communication loss.

      *Warning:  Installation and maintenance of this device should only be performed by qualified, competent personnel that have appropriate training and experience with high voltage and current devices. Failure to follow the instructions / warnings in the Meter Installation Guide can result in permanent damage to the meter, severe injury or death.

      Some PM5000 meters were shipped with a firmware that does not cycle the power after saving the IP address. After configuring the desired IP address, save the configuration changes by exiting the Ethernet information screen and then manually power cycle the meter. The meter will not display the correct IP address until it has completed a reboot cycle. 

      Note: After applying the IP address, do not go back to verify the changes. Instead, immediately power cycle the device and then verify that the configuration held.

      Schneider Electric released firmware to update the functionality of this device. Instructions and link to download Firmware for this device is available at FA299853.

      Modbus register reading program

      When reading Modbus registers for a PM5000-series meter, the Modbus register read program may require that the data type be specified as Most or Least Significant Register for 32-bit or 64-bit registers.
      For 16-bit registers, this may change to Most Significant or Least Significant Bit. The customer may also ask if the registers are big endian or little endian.

      PM5000 meters store data in the Most Significant Register format (Big Endian).
      This means that the largest number gets stored in the smallest address. 

      Say that a number (123,456,789) is stored across three addresses (101, 102, 103).
      If this data is stored as big endian (most significant bit/register), the largest number will get stored in the smallest address.

      Big Endian (Most Significant Bit/Register)









      If this data as stored as little endian (least significant bit/register), the largest number will get stored in the largest address.

      NOTE: When using the meter's webpage after completing the firmware upgrade some tabs may not load. Clear the web browser's cache and reload the page to fix broken tabs.

      Procedure to send commands over Modbus to PM5000 using Modbus Tester

      Customer wants to send a command to a PM5000 to perform remote configuration or a meter reset.

      Product Line:
      PM5100 (PM5110)
      PM5300 (PM5330, PM5340)
      PM5500 (PM5560, PM5563)

      Remote meter configuration / resets

      *Warning: The command procedure listed here can cause undesirable results to your product if applied incorrectly. Before sending any commands, verify all commands and parameters are correct. If you have any doubts, contact Technical Support for guidance.*

      The following instructions use Modbus Tester to read and write the commands. Other Modbus polling software's can also be used. 

      Step 1: Identify the Command Number and necessary Parameters
      1. Open the Modbus Register List
      2. Navigate to the Commands tab and locate the desired command
      3. Write down the Command Number and the Parameters
      In this example, the user wants to send the Reset All Energies command to the PM5560. As shown in Table 1, the Reset All Energies command number is 2020. This command also has 1 parameter, the command semaphore. This information will be necessary in Step 3.
      Table 1: Modbus Register List Excerpt
      Command Name Command Number Command Tag Parameters
      Reset All Energies 2020 C_RESET_ALL_ENERGIES (1) Command Semaphore

      Step 2: Get the Semaphore
      1. In Modbus Tester, set the Data Type to "Holding Register (R03 / W16)".
      2. The Command Semaphore is stored in Modbus register 5680. Therefore, set the Starting Register to 5680.
      3. Set # or Registers to be 1.
      4. Then Click on Read once. 
      Note: During this time no other communication with the meter should run in the background. Otherwise it may cause in error.
      Note: Only perform the reading operation once. Doing more than once will cause in error. If by mistake the operation is performed more than one time then it is advised to try to do the operation again after 4 min. 

      1. Write down the Semaphore value

      Step 3: Sending the Command
      1. In Modbus Tester, set the Starting Register to 5000 and the # of Registers to 2.
      Note: If the command requires more than 2 parameters, increase the # of Registers accordingly. Modbus Tester only allows a maximum of 10 registers. If there are greater than 10 parameters for the given command, then a different Modbus polling software that is capable of writing more than 10 registers must be used.
      1. Set register 5000 to the Command value
      2. Set register 5001 to the Semaphore value
      3. Set registers 5002 - 5124 to the parameter values, if used
      For this example, recall that Reset All Energies has a Command value of 2020.
      Register 5000 = 2020
      Register 5001 = 62283
      Registers 5002 - 5124 = not used for this command
      1. Then Click "Write"

      Additional Information:

      What commands are available?
      A full list of the commands that can be sent to the PM5000 are detailed in the Modbus Register List under the Commands tab.
      The table below lists several of the most common commands:
      Warm Start Reset
      Set Date/Time
      Reset Cycle Count
      Reset All Min/Max
      Reset All Demands
      Reset Power Demand
      Reset All Peak Demands
      Reset Power Peak Demands
      Reset Input Metering Peak Demand
      Reset All Energies
      Reset All Accumulated Energies
      Reset Input Metering Accumulations
      Meter Initialization
      Acknowledge Alarms
      Disable Alarms
      Clear Data Log
      Reset Diagnostic Log

      What is a Semaphore and what is its purpose?
      The semaphore is a number that is used to control write access to the PM5000. The semaphore can only be read once in a 4 min by a single master. Therefore, it is the only master that can send a command within the 4 min period. This process guarantees that the PM5000 is only receiving a command from one device at a time.

      NOTE: The semaphore value which is received is valid for 4 minutes when not used, that is 4 minutes from the previous semaphore write.
      For example: if the received semaphore value is used at the 3rd minute 30th second from when the value is received, then the same semaphore is valid for next 4 minutes.
      You may use the semaphore value multiple times within that 4 minute window.
      You will need to read the command semaphore again after 4 minutes from the previous read has elapsed in order to get the new number.
