I try to get data from a PM710 energy analyzer but I couldn't convert the hexadecimal value to original data.

In the document the parameter type is mentioned as Mod10. What is the Mod10 data format?

The hex value is: 010818D4002B0000
The original data should be 4363476800 after conversion.

Can you please post (link to) your document with register list?
I am looking in http://www.powerlogic.com/literature/63230-501-209.pdf and cannot find it there.

My device has an older firmware version so the latest register list doesn't match.

Thank you, another fw version explains my confusion.

Generally, Mod10 (or Modulus-10000) is format, where you split your decimal number into four number groups and convert this groups independently to series of 16-bit registers. You have to figure out (from manual) which order of registers (high-first or low-first) it uses.

Conversion from hex to decimal is then straightforward: you convert each 16-bit register to decimal and put together the four-number groups.

I tried to convert the numbers you provided. I didn't manage to match them together, but I will put it here for reference:

your hex number: 010818D4002B0000
split into 16bit groups: 0108 18D4 002B 0000
convert to decimal: 0264 6356 0043 0000
put together (apparently in reverse order):
4363560264

Your number was 4363476800 which is different, but that difference is not that big, maybe you read the numbers in slightly different times.
