How to read alarm status’s via registers on a PM800 series meter

Register 10011 - 10022 (12) contain the active alarm status for all alarms in a Series 800 Power Meter (PM800). The least significant register is 10022 and 10011 is the most significant register. Therefore, register 10022 contain the status of the first 16 alarms. In binary, the least significant bit (referred to as bit 00) to the right of the register represents alarm 1, bit 01 = alarm 2, bit 02 = alarm 3, and ...

1 = alarm is active
0 = alarm is inactive

Example:.
alarm 2 and 4 are active (bits 01 and 03)
register 10022 reads 0000000000001010 in binary
