Re: Hurricane Irma and Maria outage.

Hello,
My suggestion is to consult with the inverter manufacturer. However, if you set the battery capacity at zero, it would override the setting.

Re: Hurricane Irma and Maria outage.

Hello, If the Schneider inverter is not staying on absorb time for 180 minutes as you programmed, it must be a programming conflict with the battery capacity setting. This inverter gives priority to the programmed battery capacity over the programmed absorb time. It would be a good idea to check the...

Harvey,
If you are seeing 2.5KW of the battery charger, that would be the maximum that model inverter can deliver.

Re: FlexMax Ultra 100A 300V

Hello,
The link posted above is a little out of date, we should have the official spec sheet on the OB website in a couple of weeks.
The product was designed to operate in 24V, 36V, and 48V nominal battery banks.

Re: Setting a Generator Max run time using Mate3

George,
You need to adjust the charger setting on the inverters
Password-Settings-Inverter-Battery charger
Start by adjusting the absorb time, set it to 0.1. You need to test this until you have it correct for your system.

Re: Remote charge disable

Andy,
The only way to make the FM80 stop charging is by disconnecting the batteries. You could use a remotely operated breaker to open when the batteries require it.

Re: FX Inverter keeps shutting down, battery charge good

My recommendation is to check battery specific gravity with a hydrometer. Since these batteries are 6V, and you see at least one at 4.4V it might be recommended to equalize the batteries

Re: Cannot Enable "ON" Charger Mode on Radian 8048A Inverter

Hello,
Please provide the following information
1. What is the actual mode of the charger?
2. What is the Radian input mode? this is under Grid AC input mode and limits
3. What are the voltages and time programmed under battery charger and battery equalize?

Re: FM80 in Parallel

Hello,
The system (inverter and charge controllers) must see the same DC voltage. By having two separate strings of 48V batteries, you canÔÇÖt ensure the DC voltage will be the same.
The most common issues with dissimilar battery voltages are damage to the communication network.

Re: Batteries only recharging if i turn the invertor off

Hello,
Based on your system of two batteries and two solar modules, the information provided seems normal.
My recommendation is to program the system to the specifics equipment, leaving the products at default value will not provide accurate information.

Re: FX Inverter keeps shutting down, battery charge good

Hello,
It seems as your FN-DC is out of calibration, so for now, disregard the percentage reading. What is the actual battery voltage? And if you have a red blinking light on the inverter, please check the warning menus on the MATE3

What is the battery charging setpoint programmed on the FM80?
How are your two solar modules wired? Series?
Look at the data logging directly on the FM80 and post daily production.
Did you program the FN-DC?
