Image 4-1-1: Settings register card communication

COM-Port With the function "Com-Port" the interfaces Com 1 to Com 16 of the PC can be selected. By the start of alphaSET the program checks automatically the COM-Ports of the computer. It is the decision of the PC user himself whether the selected COM-Port is still free for the use by alphaSET. Initial Baud rate The initial baud rate of the communication between alphaSet and the connected meter can be adjusted by pull-down-menu. For more information to the baud rate shift see DIN EN 6205621. Utility password A password for the meter communication can be assigned to the user profile that means an interrogation of the utility password is not executed any more (useful if the same EVU password for different meters is used). Read with 300 Baud only This option enables the constant reading of the meter with 300 baud. The automatic baud rate shift is disabled.

Page 22
alphaSET, user manual, Version 2.05.00 Page 22 of 111 4 User settings

Suppression of optical reflexion With this option a lack of the suppression of optical reflexion of the probe according to hardware can be compensated by software. Attention: The probes from P+E delivered by ELSTER do not need this option, because the suppression of optical reflexion is already realized in the hardware. Create communication log file By selection of this option a communication protocol is created automatically, which is also written directly in a text file. Waiting time between baud rate switch [ms] In this box the waiting time con be assigned in milliseconds between the baud rate switching. Data format With this choice the physical transmission of the data between the meter and alphaSET can be defined. Default is 7,E,1. The format 8, N, 1 is only required for special meters. Note: If the data of the counter are read by the AMR system modem, only the settings of this modem is relevant and not the settings of the meter. OK The actual settings are taken over by clicking on this button. They are automatically written in the user-profile and are available on the next start of alphaSET. Copy profile With the help of this button different settings can be saved in a new user-profile or releases can be transmitted out of other user profiles. Cancel

Image 5-0-1: Settings register card load profile

Read load profile options Dont read load profile / log book header: If the user reads load profile or log book, the header is always read first by default, to find out start, end and channel number of the profile. In the case of a reading without header, the selected period is questioned directly without reviewing previously, which one is available. In this process, all available load profiles in the meter are read. Show load profile including calculated times: This function should be selected normally. With this, all values in the load profile in alphaSET get time stamps. These are calculated of the alphaSET automatically based on the meter basic data and are not delivered by the meter itself (see VDEW-Lastenheft). Daily readout of load-profile: With this function the readout of load-profile over a longer period is devided into single days. In this way it is guaranteed, that only the defective days must be repeated at an occurring communication mistake. (This function is important in conjunction with transparent meter modems without securing of data, that do not support the R6 command (in accordance with VDEW-Lastenheft).

Read load-profile/event-log file without password: With this option it can be defined whether the load profile reading takes place with or without password interrogation.

Select via Modify the menu point Times. Different possibilities to change the time base or communication timeout are offered:

8.5.1 Source of Times


Select via Modify the menu point Times -> Source of time.
Image 8-5-1: Real time clock

In this menu the user can define whether the network frequency or the quartz frequency is supposed to be used for the time of the internal real time clock of the meter. Notes: In general, the setting quartz is to be recommended because the quartz inserted are highly exact and temperature stable (< 5 ppm). Especially in use of a DCF-synchronization of the measuring period is it recommended to select the setting quartz. This is because the network frequency can vary and it can lead therefore to undesirable time set (in synchronization) with corresponding entries in the load profile. It is recommended to use line for meters that are not synchronized, because the temporal deviations are countervailed with the time. Therewith, the time doesnt run

away. Whether these parameters are set parameters or parameterisation parameters depends on the firmware version of the meter which works at the moment with the alphaSET: Until including FW version 3.05 these are parameterisation parameters, from FW version 4.00 these are set parameters.

At the start of a demand period, the output contact is either opened or closed (if it is parameterised). By exceeding the threshold the output contact is closed (opened). Starting with the FW version 4.40 it is additionally possible to enter a threshold value for the tan(phi). Note: The format of the overload threshold is the same as for the demand values. Up to FW version 4.00 only one overload threshold can be parameterised, since then two. Only since firmware 4.20 is it possible to configure overload threshold 2 freely.
