Why are dashes displayed instead of a value for demand power on my PM800 series meter?

Issue:
Dashes are displayed for demand values on the front screen of a PM800

Product Line:
Powerlogic PM800 Series Meters

Enviorment:
Power Monitoring

Cause:
The dashes will be displayed following a power cycle to the power meter. The reason for this is that it takes one demand interval to report this value. For example, if your demand interval is set to 10 minutes, it would take 10 minutes after a power cycle to report the value. 

Resolution:
To fix the issue, simply wait however long the demand interval is set to. After this allotted time all demand values will be displayed instead of dashes.
