Why are the menu labels at the bottom of the display on the Series 700, 800 Power Meter labeled I, U-V, PQS, E, PF, and F instead of Amps, Volts, Pwr, Energ, PF, and Hz?

Issue:
A user wants an explanation for the labeling of units on a PM700 or PM800 series meter.

Product Line:
PM700 series, PM800 series

Environment:
Front display of meter, readings from ION Setup, readings from Power Monitoring Expert, etc.

Cause:
The PM700 and PM800 series meters are capable of displaying their measurements in either IEEE format or IEC format. This will cause their basic summary 3-phase display to show either (I, U-V, PQS) or (Amps, Volts, Power).

Resolution:
Using the meter's front navigation panel, navigate through the following selection:

1. Maint >>
2. Reset >>
3. Mode >>

a. Select IEC if they desire:
I = Current
U-V = Voltage
PQS = Power
E = Energy
PF = Power Factor
F = Frequency

OR

b. Select IEEE if they desire:
Amps = Current
Volts = Voltage
Pwr = Power
Energ = Energy
PF = Power Factor
Hz = Frequency
