How to read registers for circuits 43-84 from a Branch Circuit Power Meter (BCPM or BCPMSC).

Environment

Cause
User wishes to read registers for circuits 43-84.

Resolution
The BCPM register list only contains register addresses for circuits 1-42. To read circuits 43-84, the same registers for circuits 1-42 will need to be read on the next modbus address.
For example, if the BCPM is configured to modbus address 1, registers for circuits 1-42 will be read exactly as the register list details. For circuits 43-84, the same registers will also be read using modbus address 2.
This principle also applied when adding an 84 circuit BCPM/BCPMSC to an EGX or ECC card, the correct configured address and the proceeding address must be added.

For the list of registers for the BCPM/BCPMSC, see FA212184
