The C30 is provided with this optional feature, specified as an option at the time of ordering. Using the
order code for your device, see the order codes in chapter 2 for details.
User-programmable pushbuttons provide an easy and error-free method of entering digital state (on, off) information. The
number depends on the front panel ordered.
Enhanced horizontal front panel — 16 user-programmable pushbuttons
Enhanced vertical front panel — 6 user-programmable pushbuttons
Standard horizontal front panel — 12 user-programmable pushbuttons
User-programmable pushbuttons require a front panel with that option. If the front panel was ordered separately,
update the EnerVista software under Maintenance > Enable Pushbutton.
The digital state can be entered locally (by directly pressing the front panel pushbutton) or remotely (via FlexLogic oper-
ands) into FlexLogic equations, protection elements, and control elements. Typical applications include breaker control,
autorecloser blocking, and setting groups changes. The user-programmable pushbuttons are under the control level of

Both the standard and enhanced front panel pushbuttons can be custom labeled with a factory-provided template, available
online at http://www.gegridsolutions.com/multilin. The EnerVista software can also be used to create labels for the
enhanced front panel.
Each pushbutton asserts its own "On" and "Off" FlexLogic operands (for example,
). These operands are available for each pushbutton and are used to program specific actions. If any pushbutton is

Each pushbutton has an associated LED indicator. By default, this indicator displays the present status of the correspond-
ing pushbutton (on or off). However, each LED indicator can be assigned to any FlexLogic operand through the
