How can we have LED to light-up when CF1 disabled (i.e. with no load)?

Under our configuration, CF1 output are ‘1’ when CFx pulse mode is disabled.
Could it be changed?
When pulses are working, for our calibration frequency (1000 imp/kwh), CF  is
‘1’ and pulse produces ‘0’ in our signal. Our problem is that, when we have a
no-load condition, we would like to stop register accumulation and keep the led
ON, so we would need 0 state in CF outputs, but they stay at ‘1’.


Firstly, the CF1 output conditions, when enabled/disabled, cannot be changed.

In order to turn-on the LED when CF is disabled (i.e no load) is as follows:

-connect CF1 to the microcontroller's (MCU) IO pin

-make the MCU replicate CF1 at another IO pin.

-when ADE7953 enters noload (i.e. disabled), an interrupt is generated and the
MCU can then manipulate the IO as it wishes.
