What is the difference between a XB2 and XB4?

Need to know what are the changes from XB2 to XB4

Product Line:
Harmony Pushbuttons

All Products

The XB4 requires only 1 screw to tighten on the mounting collar verses 2 on the XB2. This allows easier installation. The XB4 push buttons can accept 3 contact blocks side-by-side-by-side for a total of nine contacts on non-illuminated devices. Using the XB4 Protected LED light modules and contacts on each side will allow shallower depth than the XB2 on illuminated devices.

Our connectors are made of Polypropylene (which is a flame retardant material) according to the supplier this material can hold up top +-165C.
Although I will not recommend more than room temperature + 40C.
Keep in mind cables will not stand such temperature anyway as they normally rated between 75C to 90C

Some of the key features are:
  • Cable Connectors
  • Single or double screw
  • Clear insulated
  • Suits up to 2 x 6mm² cables


How to change the display settings of energy units from MWh to kWh in ME Meter.

Depending on the ME meter version, meter will automatically select the appropriate units and therefore it is not possible to modify the energy units. From 40/5 to 150/5 CT ratio, the energy unit display is KWh and from 200/5 to 6000/5 CT ratio, the energy unit display is MWh.

CT Setting:
To change the CT settings hold down the button on the Front Face of the ME Meter for more than 5 sec when on the CT Rating display. After approximately 5 sec the display will start blinking, now enter the CT setting. Once again hold the button till the display stop flashing, to ensure that the entry is saved.

Which trip unit and BCM date code are configured for a 2 wire modbus system?

Which trip unit and BCM date code are configured for a 2 wire modbus system?

Product Line:
Circuit breakers

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.

Vista cannot find generic diagram for CM4000 device.

Goals and Symptoms

A CM4000T device is added to an SPM 7.0.1 system. When clicked on in Vista, an error message appears: "A generic diagram for the selected device cannot be found".
In the alarms panel on the web interface, there are links to source devices. Clicking on these links displays a blank page, even if the device is manually pointed to a diagram in Vista.
In Vista, the device type / product field displays a large meaningless number instead of a product type.

Keywords: SPM 7, SPM7, CM4

Causes and Fixes

The most likely cause is that the device is loaded with an old, unsupported firmware. In this old firmware, the device type register had a different address. Hence, SPM cannot determine the device type automatically, causing diagram linkage errors.

It appears that the data returned from the Device Type register is incorrect. This explains why SPM does not know which diagram to use, and why you see the strange numeric value for the device type. SPM Vista polls this register as well as the firmware version to determine which diagram to use.

To confirm these suspicions, the following check can be performed:

First, check the meter's translator file: \ION Enterprise\system\translators\cm4000.xml
Near the top of the file you should see where it looks for "FAC1 Device Type", it should be register [40]3010:

<ModbusInfo IONHandle="4864" Name="FAC1 DeviceType" ModbusAddress="403010" RequestType="R" Format="UINT16" Offset="0x75B3" CacheSpec="C" SetupReg="1" DisableNotAvailableCheck="0" ConfigWrite="1">
<Enumeration Ordinal="15101" Value="CM4000" />
<Enumeration Ordinal="15103" Value="CM4250" />
<Enumeration Ordinal="15111" Value="CM3250" />
<Enumeration Ordinal="15112" Value="CM3350" />
<Enumeration Ordinal="15001" Value="CM4000T" />

Next, use the meter's front panel diagnostic menu to read register 3010. For a CM4000T it should be value 15001 as stated above.

To resolve the issue, update the device firmware to the most recent.

Why is my actual UPS runtime different from the quoted runtime on the APC web page?

Why is my actual UPS runtime different from the quoted runtime on the APC web page?
Product line:
All models
Why is my actual UPS runtime different from the quoted runtime on the APC web page?
The runtime shown on the web site is an estimate and is offered as a guide only as there are a lot of factors that will determine the actual runtime achieved in anyone application, including:
  • Temperature- The temperature of the battery within its environment will affect its capacity and therefore the available runtime. Capacity decreases at lower temperatures and increases at higher temperatures.
  • Age of the battery - A new battery will only reach its optimum capacity after a two or three discharge and charge cycles, plus as it ages its capacity will decrease, typically down to approximately 80% at the end of its life.
  • Temperature & battery life - Whilst the capacity of a battery will increase at higher temperatures its life will be reduced, typically by 50% for every 10 deg Celsius rise above 25 deg Celsius.
  • Recharging the battery - Whilst a battery will recharge to 90% capacity fairly quickly, it can take up to 72 hours to reach its full capacity again. This is because as the battery approaches its fully charged state it becomes more difficult to get energy back into the battery.
  • The frequency and depth of discharge cycles - The frequency and depth of discharge will affect the life and capacity of the battery, reducing with a higher number and depth of cycles.
  • The load itself - In particular the actual size of the load compared with the theoretical load.
  • The load characteristic - The runtime calculation is based on tests with resistive load and may differ with inductive or capacitive load.
  • Light load accuracy- The estimated runtime values quoted on the web are based on an algorithm which tends to be less accurate for light loads and long runtime applications.
  • Storage - When a battery is stored, be that within a UPS that is not connected or as a RBC, it will gradually lose capacity through self-discharge, a situation which is accelerated at higher storage temperatures. So providing the storage period and temperature has not exceeded the typical battery manufactures specification the battery will return to near full capacity, but sufficient recharge time, 48 - 72 hours must be allowed for the capacity to be recovered. Typical maximum storage period is 12 months at 25 deg Celsius, 8 months at 30 deg Celsius and 4 months at 40 deg Celsius.


How to I monitor NetBotz alarms using Modbus?

Monitoring alarms on NetBotz using Modbus.
Product Line:
NetBotz 550
NetBotz 570
NetBotz 450 (with Advanced Software Pack)
NetBotz 455 (with Advanced Software Pack)
This is just a guide showing how to monitor NetBotz events using Modbus. Modbus output is not available on the 4xx units by default.
In this example, I have configured a NetBots 570 with a rack access pod NBPD0171. I want to see when there is a forced entry into a rack door being monitored by this NetBotz configuration. Any supported firmware should work but in this case, I have used version 4.5.2.
There is no way using Modbus to know the exact error message. Based on the return values and the register maps, you can tell what sensor is in an error state and you can tell what level of event is occurring. Let me first state that this mimics the DCE modbus output and you can use the following document (at least the beginning of it) to figure out the level of alarm:
This is app note 156 and the link may change over time.
First, Enable the Modbus output on the “Modbus Slave Communications” applet in NetBotz Advanced View (AV). On a 4xx unit, you must first install the advanced software pack. On a 5xx unit, this is enabled by default. 3xx units and older version 2 units does not support this feature.

This example is using Modbus over TCP but there is a serial option. Please see the user manual for your unit as to how to use the serial connections.
Next, using the ”Modbus Slave System” applet in AV, find the appropriate pod. In this case, I am using Rack Access Pod 170 (03)

Click “Modify Pod Settings” and you will be able to give the pod a slave address and create a register map for all it’s sensors:

After this configuration, you can view and subsequently export the register map back on the “Modbus Slave System” page.
You will see the alarms configured this way (and more):
all   30992(0x7910)  Alarm #03                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor
 all   30994(0x7912)  Alarm #02                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor
 all   30996(0x7914)  Alarm #01                                                         002     UINT16       RO      Alarm - Alarm Code + Corresponding Sensor

You will also see each pod as it’s own slave. Here you can see the main unit as slave 1 and the NetBotz 170 pod as slave 2:
001   31000(0x7918)  NetBotz Rack Monitor 570:Ethernet Link Status                     002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Down), 1(Up)
 001   31002(0x791a)  NetBotz Rack Monitor 570:A-Link Bus Power                         002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(OK), 1(Overloaded)
 002   31000(0x7918)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Handle  (2)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Up), 1(Down)
 002   31002(0x791a)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Handle  (1)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Up), 1(Down)
 002   31004(0x791c)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Lock  (1)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Unlocked), 1(Locked)
 002   31006(0x791e)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Reader  (2)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Disabled), 1(Enabled)
 002   31008(0x7920)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Reader  (1)                              002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Disabled), 1(Enabled)
 002   31010(0x7922)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Door  (1)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Open), 1(Closed)
 002   31012(0x7924)  Rack Access Pod 170 (03):Lock  (2)                                002     INT16        RO      Value - 0(Unlocked), 1(Locked)
Please note that each register is actually listed as 2 numbers higher than the last. This is because each sensor is configured as 2 registers. If you're looking for data on a specific register say 31000, you actually have to pull 31000 and 31001. Note the register in bold is 31010. To get the data for this sensor, you need to pull 31010 and 31011. It also shows this is the door sensor and the value should be 0 for open and 1 for closed. Knowledge base FA214410 can assist if you’re unsure how to use dual registers but it should not be necessary in this specific instance.
Next, when you poll for alarms, you poll register 30999. This  shows how many alarms there are. Register 30998 shows the highest severity of the alarms if there are multiple. For each alarm, you should read 2 registers back. In this case there is 1 alarm so reading 2 registers before the 30998 is 30997 and 30996.
In this image from AV, you can see the door is open and in an error state:

Upon polling the device’s IP and slave address 2, you can see that 31010 and 31011 (31011 is the important one) is reading 0. This means from the register map that the door is open. Value - 0(Open), 1(Closed)

Here is what that same register looks like if I close the door:

Putting the door back in alarm, you can see that 30999 is 1 meaning there is 1 error and 30998 is 2 which means it is level 2 (error)....the latter is defined in the DCE app note 156 linked above.

The register 30997 above reports the sensor. The return is 31010. This matches the register on that door sensor as shown in the register map. The register 30996 reports the actual error. This is also defined in the DCE app note. It's in HEX in the app note so you have to show the return in hex as I am doing here:

Note that 30996  is reporting 000E. If you check the device alarm codes here (again from app note 156), you'll see that 000E relates to "General Device Alarm":

So with this information, I opened a door with a locked handle and the information I pulled via Modbus shows that sensor (register) 31010  is in an alarm state of general device alarm and it is an error level. Looking at the register map I can tell that 31010 (remember, it's 2 registers on a sensor) is a door sensor and since it's return is 0, the door is open. You can also check the other sensors such as handle to see if it is down or check the lock to ensure it is locked etc.
