ION Setup Disturbance Alarm Setpoints show a scale factor of x 1.0 on CM4000, CM3000, and PM800 series meters

Issue
When attempting to configure Disturbance Alarms for CM4000, CM3000 or PM800 series meters via ION Setup software, the scale factors for Setpoint Pickup and Dropout will always show x 1.0, however the voltage scale is set to a different value such as x 10.

PMCU software is reading the Scale Factor correctly:
