How does one interpret the information in an exported PowerLogic E4800 file (.TR3)?

When exported to an FTP directory, the E4800 will place the files in the "Upload" directory configured in the E4800 as .TR3 files, which are the same .CSV files.
Excel won't recognize them as their files the first time they are used, but they can be opened with Excel, and it will begin a wizard to import the data.
During this wizard, set the delimiter as a comma, not a tab, and you will see your information in an excel format that can be saved as a .xls or a .CSV file type.
Please note it stores many of these files onboard the E4800, so you may have to sift through some files to get the date/time(s) you're interested in.
The meter configuration will determine the number of circuits(8 - 3 phase circuits, 12 - split phase circuits, or 24 - single phase circuits) that can be viewed.

The column under the Build number will indicate a 1, 2, or 3, each representing the following:
1 = Interval energy data(this is the energy accumulated over the the time period last logged)
2 = Accumulated energy data(this is the real energy total value)
3 = System / meter status information

Energy data is stored on board the meter in non-volatile flash memory, with a programmable logging interval of 5 to 60 minutes.
Total capacity is 2.4 years at 1 hour intervals, or over 200 days at 15 minute intervals.

The only information that's stored historically on the meter is real energy.(This cannot be changed)

Attached is an .XLS file converted from the .TR3 format. The columns have been adjusted to make it easier to view.

One thing to note is that you can view the real time readings through the web browser interface onboard of the meter.
