The SICAM P configuration software package enables a simple way to carry out the device settings. The package consists of the parameterizing software, a configuration cable with RS232/RS485 converter, as well as a plug-in power supply for the converter. The SICAM P can be connected to any standard PC via the RS232/RS485 converter by means of a 9-pin SUB-D connector.
The configuration software permits a faster configuration of the SICAM P devices. The user can set and store parameters even without having a unit by his side. The parameters are transferred to the SICAM P by using the "Send to unit" command. Thus, a number of SICAM P units can be configured with minimum effort. The stored set of parameters is simply reloaded when a unit has to be replaced. Furthermore, firmware updates can be reloaded by means of the SICAM P configuration software.
The configuration package supports all SICAM P units and is absolutely essential for the devices SICAM P55.
Configuration of the measurement memory
Devices with measurement buffer offer the opportunity to record measured quantities and state information. Therefore, the configuration software enables menu items for the determination of values and state information which should be recorded.
Separate functions integrated in the configuration software, enable a read-out of the following information:
Mean values of power
State information of binary channels
Limit value violations
Display and evaluation
All values and information read out via the software are shown automatically in tabular and graphical form together with the time stamp on the screen.
The context menu offers some functions (masking of signals, copy, zoom, measuring functions) for easy analysis of measured values and state information.
The following measured values can be shown in graphical form:
Mean values of voltage and current
The following information is shown in tabular form:
The software also enables a function for the export of transmitted values and state information into an ASCII file. This ASCII file can be used in other applications, e.g. MS-Excel. Oscilloscope recordings can be exported into COMTRADE formatted files.
