Re: FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

Whenever the power goes out...my customer has a new problem. This time, the grid was out all night. 6:47 am, Bat Voltage Low Error FXR-2. 43.2VDC. Apparently that was a fatal error because they lost that leg of power in the house. Why would just one FXR drop and not both? The last error was Battery ...

Re: FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

It's a 3S. I used some of her old green cables on the new system because they shorted me on the shipment. Pretty sure I used them on the FM 100's and not on the FXR's or the Mate. I'm going to see what it will take to get a cable to the router from the mate and get Optics set up.

Re: FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

It is a flexware 500 with FXR inverters and a Mate 3s built in May or June of 19. Installed in July. It is not currently hooked to the internet. Does that need to be done so that smarter people can diagnose it?

Re: FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

I can't believe this same thing happens about once a month. What the hell am I supposed to do? Does Outback have a real fix for this? Don't tell me to re-load the firmware. Done that twice. Please tell me how to fix this.

Re: OB ProHarvest in Commercial Rooftop Applications

It has been several weeks and no reply from Outback. If this was on a customer's commercial building, they would be very upset. I'm starting to wonder if Outback Power sold out to other corporate interests and now has lost it's way. The initial pioneers who started the company are all gone now and t...

Re: OB ProHarvest in Commercial Rooftop Applications

It's been a week since I put in a request with Outback to help troubleshoot and have not heard back. Not happy.

Re: OB ProHarvest in Commercial Rooftop Applications

We have had two ProHarvest inverters on our building because we needed a 3 phase inverter. First one failed within two months. $700 for the unit to monitor them (way overpriced!!!!) so we didn't get one. Didn't know it was out. Outback replaced it quickly but now the replacement unit has failed just...

Re: FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

Re-loading the firmware to the FXR's seemed to do the trick. Thanks for the help Just got the call for the same problem a month after fixing it. I brag about Outback reliability to EVERYONE! You had a great product until the Mate 3. These service calls are not paid for by anyone and I'm not sure I c...

FM 100 blue lights

Hello fellow enthusiast!
This is the first time working with the new FM 100. It's a grid tie system and it is selling and all is working well. Why is the blue light flashing and not solid when it is supposed to be?
Thanks.
Joel.

FXR inverter firmware mismatch. Inverter 2 dissabled

Hello all. I just got a call from a client that got this error message and one inverter dropped out. It's working now but the error is still there. I installed it (brand new) and it has worked for three months no problems. Why would I get this message now? I upgraded this customer from an older GTFX...

Re: AGS problems

Just got a message from my customer this morning saying the Generac turned on by itself, charged batteries then turned off by itself. It seems to be the case that all is working well. The theory is the spouse turned on the gen manually through the mate (1) and didn't put it back in auto mode. Servic...

AGS problems

I've been working on a system that was a total mess from the beginning. The mate is pretty old and may need upgrading. Slave inverter was repaired by Outback (it probably was damaged from not having a bypass assembly installed) and DC voltage readings are sometimes different from FX1 to FX2. I can s...

Re: What does Mate display when battery bank is fully charged?

I just read that the battery temp sensor should be plugged into the master inverter and not the charge control. That may be one of my problems. So much to learn. Seems like (maybe there is) there should be a label on the charge control battery temp sensor port saying "use battery temp sensor port on...

Re: What does Mate display when battery bank is fully charged?

I am relatively new to the outback platform (and new to this board) and have had to troubleshoot 2 systems (one of which I wired). They have both had similar problems and the first one was fixed by (I think) properly installing the flexnet dc + & - terminals to the actual battery bank instead of the...
