Can the Circuit Monitor Series 2000 Alarm on Loss of Power?

If the load which the CM2000 is monitoring losses voltage on any ONE phase, the CM2000 has the ability to alarm on this. The specific alarm is Voltage Loss (Alarm #31), which is an alarm that will become active when any ONE phase drops below the user-defined pickup value. The alarm will NOT become active is all three phases drop below the pickup value.
This specific alarm can be associated with the operation of a relay output on a IOM, if installed.

Note: If the meter losses control power, there is no ability to signal the Voltage Loss alarm unless the CM2 Ride-Through Module is installed.

Note: The same applies for subsequent Circuit Monitor models and PM800 series meters. These meters however have no ride-through module option.
