The EPM 5300P and 5200P full scales will already be programmed if the order specified
current and voltage transformer ratios. The meter label indicates any full scale setup.
Programming Group 1 contains voltage, amperage and full scale power selection, along
with scale factor selection and decimal point placement.
The user can re-scale without removing the EPM 5300P for calibration. The 5300P has been
calibrated at standard levels in GROUP 2. Mathematically convert any full scale ratios to
those calibrated levels. If a different current or voltage transformer is used, program the
primary value of its ratio. If necessary, convert the ratio to a secondary value of five amps
standard current (1 amp is a special order) and 120V or 75V nominal voltage (options L
It may be necessary to convert the full scale to a larger unit. There is a resolution limitation
for all full scales of 2000. If a display reading exceeds 2000, it may be unstable and subject
to zeroing problems.
Example: The full scale for a CT ratio of 3000/5 should be 03.00 kA.
When changing a PT or CT full scale, calculate the new watts full scale and make any
necessary changes. The watts full scale will not auto range.
