We have a number of inline meters (AP7155 and AP7175) feeding older style "dumb" PDU's, does anyone know how to model this in the power train of DCO? In simple form the power train looks like this
Feed ---> Busway ---> Inline Meter ---> PDU ---> IT Equipment
We are running DCO 8.2.3 Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit the in line meter genome to have the same outlet as the 'dumb' rack PDU. That way you are modelling both the in line meter and the rack pdu.
As for readings, do you get readings from the busyway's tap of point?
If not, use the inline meter's reading & associate it to inline meter genome in

Modelling in-line current meter is unfortunately not supported in DCO - I would use the rack pdu's properties settings to add something like "In-line Meter: AP7155":
Hope this helps,

i agree with both. Create a meter/rPDU device in the Genomes and consider entering devices to keep your asset info as close as possible to actuality
