Acuvim II + AXM-WEB2: How to Reset Energy Using the Web Interface
The Acuvim II meter accumulates Active, Reactive, and Apparent energy values over time. Depending on your application, it can be helpful to reset these values periodically, which can be done using the web interface.
To complete these steps, you will need an Acuvim II meter with the AXM-WEB2 module powered up and connected to an internal network or the Internet plus the IP address of the device.
Enter the IP address of the AXM-WEB2 module in your web browser. This will take you to the Accuenergy Login screen which prompts you for an Access Level and Password. Select "Admin" for the Access Level and enter the case-sensitive password for your module (default password: admin). Click the "Sign In" button.
Upon logging in, you will be taken to the Dashboard screen. Click on the "Metering" dropdown located towards the upper left side of the screen. Select "Power & Energy" from the menu.
Active, Reactive, and Apparent Energy will be displayed in the "Energy by Consumption/Generation" table. Review the values in the table to determine whether a reset is required.
To reset the values, click " Settings" in the upper right corner. Then, click the "Management" tab to display the reset options.
Locate the "Reset Energy" option and click the “Reset” button. Confirm your choice by selecting the red “Reset” button to clear the current maximum and minimum values and reset the timestamps. A popup window will appear to indicate the request was successfully sent to the meter. Click "OK" to close the window.
If you wish to view the energy values again, click the "AXM-WEB2" button at the top right corner of the screen to go back to the Dashboard. Select Metering > Power & Energy to view the recorded Active, Reactive, and Apparent energy values. All energy values should be reset to zero.
After the values are confirmed, you may log out from the meter. This completes the process for resetting energy through the web interface.
