What is the “Format” of “Enumerated” registers in the ION6200 Modbus Map?

Issue:
A user may be trying to read or write to a register on an ION6200, and needs to know if it is a 16 or 32 bit register, and if it is signed or unsigned.
 
Product Line:
ION 6200
 
Environment:
Reading and writing registers.
 
Cause:
The ION6200 can have a scale applied to voltage, current, and power readings, and the scaled value can be read over communications, while a non scaled reading is shown on the meter. Software applications such as a Building Management System (BMS) may need specific details of these registers in order to read and write to them.
 
Resolution:
As documented on Page 11 of PowerLogic ION6200 Serial Communications Protocol and ION / Modbus Register Map, "All ION6200 numeric parameters are represented in Unsigned 16‐bit Integer Format".
