Resolution
The EM4200 series meters do not support onboard data logs. All the historical data is obtained using PC-based logging features in your software.
If you are using Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 8.x software, the EM4200 device driver utilizes PC-based logging by default every 900 seconds for the following measurements:

Current A / Current B / Current C / Current Avg
Demand Real Power / Demand Reactive Power / Demand Apparent Power
Real Energy Absolute / Reactive Energy Absolute / Apparent Energy
Power Factor A / Power Factor B / Power Factor C / Power Factor Total
Real Power A / Real Power B / Real Power C / Real Power Total
Reactive Power Total / Apparent Power Total
Voltage A-B / Voltage B-C / Voltage C-A / Voltage L-L Avg
Voltage A-N / Voltage B-N / Voltage C-N

To change the list of measurements being logged, or the logging interval, use the Modbus Device Importer, accessed from the Tools > System menu in Management Console.

To download EM4200 device driver for PME 8.0, see FA280672
Note: The EM4200 device driver is native in PME 8.1 and is available with the default PME install.
