SFT2841


Cause

Resolution
When a new SEPAM fault recording (waveform capture, WFC) is uploaded using SFT2841 two separate files are stored. The WFC data file (xxx.dat) is stored in binary and contains all of the data points that make up the waveform. The WFC configuration file is stored in ASCII (xxx.cfg) and provides the configuration of the plot.
