6200: Reading energy values off the front panel display.

Issue
How to read energy values off the front panel display of ION 6200 meter.
 
Product Line
ION 6200
 
Environment
ION 6200 front display reading energy values
 
Cause
Energy values are often directly read off the front panel display. However, the 6200 Installation and Operation Guide do not explicitly describe how to get these energy values.
 
Resolution
The KWh front panel display constitutes of three rows. Say that the first row of the KWh display is showing 'aaa', the second row shows 'bbb' and the third row shows 'ccc', then the total KWh read by the meter is aaa bbb ccc KWh.

The 6200 is hard-coded to roll over at 100 000 000 KWh. As the KWh starts accumulating, the third row on the display shows an increment in value. When the value goes over 999 KWh, the second row is used to display the KWh values up to 999 999 KWh. Eventually, when the value goes over 999 999 KWh, the top row is also used to display the KWh until the KWh rolls over at 100 000 000 KWh.
 
Example: As shown in picture below (from ION 6200 front display), the total kwh accumulated is = 270,050 kwh
