How to read alarm status's via registers for a PM650 series meter

The alarm status's are stored in registers 5771-5773 with each alarm status stored in a bit indexed at zero. For example, if one needed to determine if an over current alarm for phase A was present, one would need to read register 5771 bit 0. If the program being used only reads decimal it may be converted to binary using the Windows calculator.
