Additional techdoc updates for this release:
Hello Sorry what is the difference between meter framework510 and PQ ?
An which one should I use?
Why is all the meter data deleted with the firmware upgrade?
Hi Sven - the 519 framework would be used if you want to utilize the "Harmonics Compliance" report in PME. It does IEEE519 at the expense of EN50160, however, so if you need the latter, use the PQ framework (and the default one).
Meter data is not persisted upon a firmware upgrade, hence the recommendation to ensure your logs are caught up prior to the upgrade.
as we could find out last friday. the Problem was that the Pm8000 was not configured properly.
As is remotely change only two settings we got the PM8000 working.
It was your mistake.
The DCFs are embedded in the firmware zip file in the links in Daniel Brandao's post above.
Otherwise you can use the following link:
Most DCFs should be available in the ION Templates sub-folder and if there are additional ones you need uploaded, let me know.
I am monitoring this link for any new ION meter firmware release:
I found out from my colleague here that the PM8000 V2.1.0 is now released and can be found here:
Would be good if we have one location for all firmwares and maybe announce it here in the commuinity if there is a new one.
Anyway, we see in "What's New?" that there is a lot of enhancements in this firmware. Good job team!
Thanks for the feedback Arneil. We are currently looking at improving this aspect and your feedback is valuable as a consumer of this information. Our current plan is that we would package FW releases with the associated documentation and post on SE.com. We would then announce via the Exchange Community to point to the latest release. If you have recommendations on this please let us know.
