Required meter communication status in PSO9.0. We need to know how can we check communication status of any meter on PSO9.0.
If you create the I/O Device instantiated with I/O Device Manager from an exported profile using Profile Editor then you're all set to go.
There is a special health tag ([I/ODevice name]\LPHD1\EEHealth) which triggers an Advanced Alarm: Communication failure for each I/O Device.
At runtime when clicking on the meter's icon (when using a Power Meter standard genie) you will get the equipment details popup, which shows comms status.
Worth exploring other options during runtime as well:
- the new Diagnostics page available through Analysis > Diagnostics menu
- use Kernel of IOServer process
If your target is to create a monitoring page for those meters, if they answer to ping, then you can install and use ICMP driver to check their IP availability in realtime.
Nice to hear from you and thank you for this solution, can this possible solution is also applicable on any 3rd-party meter.
If possible kindly share that process for 3rd-party meter communication status to us.
