READ ME FIRST – MD SERIES POWER METER STARTUP

IMPORTANT! PLEASE NOTE:

1. The ViewPoint™ Software tool, provided on the flash drive that is included with the meter shipment, is not typically required for configuring your new MD series Power Meter for use with the Siemens Apogee™ or other Building Automation Systems. This metering kit, comprised of a meter plus three current transducers (CTs), has been factory-configured with meter setup parameters for the specific CT current ranges that were ordered.

A brief installation video link is provided below. There are typically no additional user requirements that utilize the ViewPoint™ software to perform any further configuration of the MD series metering kits to support setup or installation.

Please read the power meter installation chapter in the User Manual for the installation and start up instructions. If there is a reason to reconfigure the meter to accept a CT set with a different current range, please consult the appropriate Siemens MD series User Manual noted below.

2. The RS-485 network device address for the MD series Power Meters is set only via the rotary address switches on the front left face of the meter. The BACnet/Modbus address cannot be configured with ViewPoint software. See the User Manual for detailed instructions on setting the device address via the front mounted rotary switches. See the MD-BMS and MD-BMED User Manual for instructions regarding the setting of the IP address for the MD-BMED model Ethernet communication.

3. If you intend to use the ViewPoint™ software tool with the MD series Power Meters for purposes of data register viewing or for firmware upgrades, please read the ViewPoint use instructions contained in the Siemens User Manual. See links above to download the manual.

WARNING: Improper use of this powerful ViewPoint software tool may result in modifying internal meter setup parameters that could make the power meter inoperative.
