How to read alarm status's via registers on a CM2000 series meter

The alarm status's are stored in registers 5771-5778 with each alarm set to a bit indexed from zero. For example, if one needed to determine if the over current alarm for phase A was active you would read register 5771 and look to bit zero. If the register reading program is not capable of displaying binary (bit level) information, the information may be entered into the Windows calculator and converted from decimal to binary.
