    7 Device Configuration and Commissioning All newly delivered devices are factory-configured so as to support all available interfaces. Setting enCore device parameters, i.e. configuring device functions and adapting the device to the actual measuring point, is done on site using the enSuite software.
  • Page 97: Device Configuration

    Device Configuration and Commissioning 7.1 Device Configuration This section gives brief instructions on how to create a complete confi- guration for enCore devices and how to transfer the configuration into the device on-site via USB. For details  refer to volume ”Configuration of Device Software”...
  • Page 98: Commissioning The Measurement System

    Device Configuration and Commissioning In very rare cases, it may happen that the device shows a prohibitive sign in the home display after parameterization and restart, e.g.: Fig. 7-1: Emergency mode The prohibitive sign indicates that the device has started in emergency mode due to a system error that has been detected during re-start.
  • Page 99: Checking Device Settings

    Device Configuration and Commissioning 7.2.1 Checking Device Settings The legally relevant parameters can be checked in special device displays ( volume “Use in Legal Metrology” of the enCore FC manual). The enSuite software will allow you to carry out a complete check of the current device parametrization when the software has an online connection to the device.
  • Page 100: Sealing (if Necessary)

    Device Configuration and Commissioning This function is available in normal mode during online parametrization only. Requirement is that the calibration switch is open. Depending on the action you want to execute, you need the user right Erase fiscal audit trail/fiscal archives and/or the rights for the individual counters on parameter level.
  • Page 101: Maintenance

    8 Maintenance The enCore FC is practically maintenance-free. Only the battery, which is required for purposes of data retention when the power supply is switched off, must be replaced at certain intervals. This section contains instructions for replacing the battery and cleaning the device, as well as contact data for customer service and the service hotline.
  • Page 102: Changing Batteries

    Maintenance The enCore FC automatically signals as soon as battery state of charge has dropped to 20 % of that of a new battery. A dead battery may sometimes lead to a loss of the measurement data that was calculated and saved. For safety reasons, the battery should be replaced only by the manufacturer's service department or by an appropriately trained specialist working for the plant operator.

  • Page 104: Cleaning

    Maintenance A capacitor ensures that device data will be retained for 15 minutes. Insert the new battery. ► Make sure the polarity is correct when inserting the battery ( Fig. to 8-4)! An incorrect polarity will make itself known through a loss of data, only after a power failure of greater than 15 minutes.

    9 Decommissioning/Disposal 9.1 Storage ATTENTION! Material damage from formation of condensation! Storing the device can lead to the formation of condensation resulting from variations in temperature. This may result in the device malfunctioning at a later time. • If stored or transported in cold weather or if subject to extreme variations in temperature, the device must be slowly brought to room temperature before it is commissioned.
  • Page 108: Disposal

    Decommissioning/Disposal • Storage temperature must be between −25°C and +60°C. • Mechanical vibrations must be avoided during storage. 9.2 Disposal Elster, being the manufacturer, will take care of proper disposal of the enCore FC once the operational life of the device expires.
