4 HUMAN INTERFACES
4 HUMAN INTERFACES 4.1ENERVISTA UR SETUP SOFTWARE INTERFACE
The EnerVista UR Setup software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) as one of two human interfaces to a UR device.
The alternate human interface is implemented via the device's faceplate keypad and display (see the Faceplate interface
section in this chapter).
The EnerVista UR Setup software provides a single facility to configure, monitor, maintain, and troubleshoot the operation
of relay functions, connected over local or wide area communication networks. It can be used while disconnected (offline)
or connected (online) to a UR device. In offline mode, settings files can be created for eventual downloading to the device.
In online mode, you can communicate with the device in real-time.
The EnerVista UR Setup software is provided with every C30 relay and runs on Microsoft Windows XP, 7, and Server 2008.
This chapter provides a summary of the basic EnerVista UR Setup software interface features. The EnerVista UR Setup
Help File provides details for getting started and using the EnerVista UR Setup software interface.
To start using the EnerVista UR Setup software, site and device definition are required. See the EnerVista UR Setup Help
File or refer to the Connecting EnerVista UR Setup with the C30 section in Chapter 1 for details.
a) ENGAGING A DEVICE
The EnerVista UR Setup software can be used in online mode (relay connected) to directly communicate with the C30
relay. Communicating relays are organized and grouped by communication interfaces and into sites. Sites can contain any
number of relays selected from the UR-series of relays.
b) USING SETTINGS FILES
The EnerVista UR Setup software interface supports three ways of handling changes to relay settings:
In offline mode (relay disconnected) to create or edit relay settings files for later download to communicating relays
While connected to a communicating relay to directly modify any relay settings via relay data view windows, and then
save the settings to the relay
You can create/edit settings files and then write them to the relay while the interface is connected to the relay
Settings files are organized on the basis of file names assigned by the user. A settings file contains data pertaining to the
following types of relay settings:
Factory default values are supplied and can be restored after any changes.
The following communications settings are not transferred to the C30 with settings files.
Modbus Slave Address
Modbus TCP Port Number
RS485 COM2 Baud Rate
RS485 COM2 Parity
COM2 Minimum Response Time
RRTD Slave Address
RRTD Baud Rate
