I really do not know why they have made such inverters, but...

Re: Adding a shunt

hi, there! Mike Curran I would put it between the negative bus and the charge controller, and I would change the current shunt and put between the negative of the inverter and the negative bus, so you can measure the current that consumes/charges the inverter, and the current to the charge controlle...

Re: How to Language settings on MX-60

hi, there!...

maybe you need to hard reset or maybe to factory defaults, so make memo of the voltages and other parameter to reconfigure the mx60 again.
