How to Enable the Arithmetic Module to Ignore N/A Inputs

Issue
Arithmetic module is outputting N/A for value and causing other calculations to show N/A.

Product Line
ION Enterprise 6.x, Struxureware Power Monitoring 7.x (SPM) , Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.x (PME)

Environment
Arithmetic module output and calculations.

Cause
When the Arithmetic module has at least one N/A input, its output equals N/A. In other words, when the Arithmetic module has available inputs and N/A inputs, the other ION modules cannot simply ignore the N/A inputs and only utilize the available inputs.

Resolution
To convert the N/A to zero, you may use the Convert module. Run the N/A signal through a Convert module and configure the 'N/A convert' register to convert to 0.
Feed the output of the Convert module to the Arithmetic module.

If you cannot predict which signal would be N/A, run each of them through a Convert module and set the 'N/A convert' register to convert to 0.
