Cause

MicroNet controller objects have a maximum allowable value of 10.000 some meter readings require a greater value.

Resolution

1. In VisiSat add two counter objects.

Link the Rollover pulse output of the first counter to the Count input of the second Counter object.

Fig 1.

Counter Object 1 is used for the 0 - 999 part of the meter count.

Counter Object 2 is used for the 1000 - 1,000,000 part of the meter count.

2. In the Xenta 731 add a Menta object and program shown below in fig 2 is one example.

Fig 2.

This Menta code multiplies counter object instance 2 by one thousand and adds the sum with counter object instance 1 giving an output for total meter reading of up to 9,999,999.

3. This then can be added to value, graphic ETC pages.
