Multiple Programmable Memory Logs
I/O HISTORICAL LOGS
The Nexus™ 1500 Meter is equipped
with vast amounts of memory. A user
can partition this memory for log storage
by setting up both the number of logs
and the number of parameters per log.
Up to 8 historical logs can be created
with up to 128 parameters per log.
OUT OF LIMIT LOG
The unit offers an independent out of
limit log. This allows a user to download
out of limit information to obtain a
sequence of events for any occurrence.
Utilizing the 1msec clock resolution, the
logs can be combined with different
metered points throughout a distribution

This is very useful for fault and breaker
integrity analysis.
The unit can be programmed to take
more than one recording every time an
event occurs. Thousands of cycles can
be recorded per event.
CBEMA LOG
The Nexus™ 1500 Meter stores a
separate CBEMA log that records
magnitude and duration of voltage
and current surges and sags for every
power quality event. This allows the
user to conduct real time CBEMA
analysis without downloading all stored
waveforms. The separate CBEMA log

over time.
INPUT STATUS LOG
This log is similar to the Relay Output
Log. It allows the user to record when the
internal inputs change status.
UPLOADABLE FLASH MEMORY
The Nexus™ 1500 Meter utilizes
uploadable flash memory technology on all
processors and DSPs located in the unit.
This insures that the unit can be upgraded
without removing it from service.
SET LIMIT CONTROL
The Nexus™ 1500 power monitor provides
programmable setpoints for user settings.
This feature allows a user to configure the
meter to be used as a control device for
many applications such as:
• Capacitor Control
• Load Shedding
• Automatic Transfer Schemes
• Transformer Monitoring & Control
• Redundant Protection
