Hello - is there a way to map a single kW Power meter from DCE over to a PDU in DCO? I'm able to map BCM sensors to PDUs, but wondering for PDU's where I don't have BCM, rather I only have a Main Power Meter. I'd like to map the three phase power meter over to represent the total PDU kW in DCO.

A device which measures power on 3 phases (and no BCM) does not need any sensor mapping, DCO should recognize the 3 phase power data and once you associate it with the PDU you should see the 3 phase power values - Although this only works if you do NOT have any BCM mapping on that PDU.
If the power data does not show up on you Power Meter in DCO, then is very likely a DDF problem and you will have to send in a request for an updated DDF. If you do so, please help the DDF developer by specifying that you need it as a 3 phase device in DCO.
