Wait First Timeout
Time delay between sending the request and reading the answer.
Note: a device sends a 3-character manufacturer's identification in the identification message. Standard defines that if the 3-rd character is a lower case letter, (e.g. in identifications ELm or UNi), minimum reaction time for such device is 20 ms instead of 200 ms. If the 3-rd character is an upper case letter, this does not preclude supporting a 20 ms reaction time.

Profile Read Mode

Method of reading from profile:

  • VDEW read command (R5) : READ command will be used (the R5 default level can be changed by parameter Profile Read Level).
  • VDEW block read command (R6) : BLOCK READ command will be used (the default level should be changed to R6 by parameter Profile Read Level).
  • P1 + VDEW read command (R5) : first, a Level 1 password will be set (see the parameter Password - level 1) and then READ command will be used 
  • P1 + VDEW block read command (R6): first, a Level 1 password will be set (see the parameter Password - level 1)  and then BLOCK READ command will be used 

BLOCK READ divides the data into several blocks with the size of Profile Read Block Length rows. Block reading makes sense on lines with higher error rates.

Profile Read Formatted Execution

This parameter enables specifying a special sequence which may be required by some electrometers. So far the only known sequence is F101()
(The whole sequence sent to electrometers is <SOH>E2<STX>F101()<ETX><SOH> ).

Session Recognition Flag
Flag that indicates type of date/time used by the device. Electrometers LZQJ manufactured by EMH Elektrizitätszähler indicate type of date/time by this flag (0=Normal Time, 1=Summer Time, 2=UTC Time).
This flag is used by parameters Time Mask and Date Mask to set the time and by parameter Profile Time Mask to read historical data from profile.
Note: Both Normal Time and Summer Time values will cause the flag to be set depending on the time currently set or read.

AT Command 2
A special initial string of modem 2 (only for MODEM lines).

Explanation of recommended settings:

S37=5   1200bps DTE-DTE speed - limits the speed for modems. Many devices use modems with limited transfer speeds and this setting can speed-up the connection establishment process. Higher transfer speeds must be negotiated individualy.

&D2   DTR drop to hangup - for matching with tha parameter of modem line (line configuration, tab "Modem - parameters", check the option "Use DTR for Hangup").

S0=0   Disable auto-answer. Auto-answer will not be used.

S30=2   20 sec inactivity timeout - automatic hangup after idle timeout expired. Necessary for assuring connection termination after the communication with the last device is over.
