Re: Modbus basics

I have a question. I need to send a RESTART command to FM 60/80, but i did not find any registry for that. There is any possibility to send this command via ModBus?

Re: FM Charge Controller issues

It is a common problem. Special when you have more than one controller. I have had the same issue. Base on my theory these are conditions when some time one controller moved to "Charged" while the other one remain on "Floating": Float coordination and Auto Charge Termination Control are enabled.

Why volts set so high during AC Drop and Port 1 Inverting and Port 2 Off?

you're out of voltage tolerence
not sure what you mean... my inverter is FXR3048E ( AC input is 220V )
AC input is in the tolerance limits max 252V min 208 based on default setting of the inverter

Re: "Phase Loss" Error on Port2

Hi Guys, Similar issue happens to me. System configuration: Two stacked VFRX 3048E (220v), master on port 1 slave on port2, mini grid mode used. When master goes from AC Drop to AC Use (passthrough) the slave gets the error "Phase Loss". Phaseloss.PNG OpticsRe log.PNG Any conclusion on this? Dan

Re: MATE 3S - conectivity

Hi,

There is any advantage of MATE3s versus MATE3 - based on specs i did not noticed any.
Can i found in documentation a comparison?

Re: MATE 3S - conectivity

thanks.
I hope that Data Stream over TCP is still active. I do not want to overload the MODBUS communication with monitoring data requests.
MODBUS is used by OpticsRE and if another request are coming from local monitoring software (i.e WattPlot ) i have doubts that both of them will work properly.

Re: Absorb setting is being bypassed

You'd have to have more than one CC to really know Y or N. correct, i have two, but still i'm shooting in the dark ... I'm trying to understand IF Global Charge Termination is influencing the absorption time of CC's, IF Global Charge Termination is influencing different CC's modes ( i.e Charged ). ...
