8.1 Checksum Error—Protective Self-Checking Algorithms
This checksum error is a protective self-checking wealth algorithm designed to alert the
user when a procedure has not been correctly followed, ensuring that the meter does not
display inaccurate readings.
If the control power is interrupted while in Programming Mode or the user does not
completely exit, the meter enters a checksum mode. The max LED flashes. Press AMPS
and PHASE/NEXT simultaneously and the unit recovers. Follow the procedure to enter
Programming Mode to check program data. If the data is correct, then exit.
