How long does it take 3710 ACM and 3720 ACM meters to initialize the relay outputs?

Product Line
3710 ACM
3720 ACM 

Environment
Relay Output

Cause
From the source code of the firmware for 37xx meters, the meter will suppress relays, setpoints, and alarms for 3 seconds during power up. In other words, relay outputs will be inhibited until the 3 second initialization period is over after a power up.

Resolution
There is no way to change the initialization period since it is coded into the firmware.
