Video: Can you configure custom webpages for the PM8000 meter?

Issue
A customer would like to create custom webpages for a PM8000 series meter.

Product Line
Powerlogic PM8000 series

Environment
Custom Webpages 

Resolution
The PM8000 series has built-in software modules, similar to other ION meters, but does not possess the "Web Page Module" like the ION7550/7650 models. It is possible to modify webpages for the PM8000 by accessing the meter with FTP, viewing, and editing the onboard HTML files directly.

Overview of the procedure:
1. Access the meter using a Windows Explorer window and searching: ftp://<ip address>. This may prompt for a username and/or password.
2. Go to web>>examples and select on of the sample files to modify using an HTML or webpage editor software.
3. Save your custom webpage in the monitoring or setup folder depending on the webpage created.
4. Login to your meter's webpage to view (displayed under the monitoring or setup tab).

This process is covered in detail with examples in the PM8000 User Guide on page 87 (Meter Webpages section begins on page 84).
