Re: Delay in switching to backup during outage.

Thanks for your reply, but I am a bit confused. You commented both that "I don't see how that would immediately affect your Radian's ability to transfer loads to battery support when a grid outage starts..." and " So yes, it's very possible your ROCB Relay is the problem." Were you saying that such ...

Re: AC coupled SolarEdge to Radian

I have SolarEdge Optimzers installed with my panels.

My questions regarded the current firmware versions.

Re: AC coupled SolarEdge to Radian

I am not an electrician. I don't know what that means or how to answer your question.

Re: MATE3s 1.4.0 firmware causing calibration issue

Since you alluded to another release shortly (1.4.2 in April), is their purpose to updating to 1.4.1?

Re: Gateway offline / online every 30 min?

Thanks for the prompt update. So, as I understand, this is an OPTICSRE fix and there is nothing to be done by end-users, i.e., it will just be fixed... correct?

Re: Gateway offline / online every 30 min?

Well, I was advised by Tech Support to downgrade the firmware and when that resulted in no change, they shipped a replacement MATE3s, arriving tomorrow.

So it goes.

Re: Gateway offline / online every 30 min?

So, mysteriously, after a couple of weeks of this (since 02/14), the last online/offline event (alert) was 50 hours ago. Has something been changed in OPTICSRE?

Re: MATE3s 1.4.0 firmware causing calibration issue

Jeff: You mentioned a "normal release channels". Wondering what that might be, since I have never received a notice from Outback of an update for any of my products. I have always discovered them on my own, on the firmware download page. Is there somewhere to sign up for notices? My OutBack products...

Re: Gateway offline / online every 30 min?

Since this appears to be an issue that has developed only recently, I am wondering what could have changed that resulted in this glitch?

Re: Gateway offline / online every 30 min?

Same issue. Tech Support had me downgrade my firmware from 1.4.0 (no longer available) to 1.3.1. No change. Now sending a replacement MATE3s. This form (different thread) acknowledges an issue and that it is being investigated.

In the meantime, no change.

Re: MATE3s continuously rebooting.

It is showing continuous online/offline entries in the Optics Event History. I don't know how I would know if it is actually rebooting or not? Also, as directed by Technical Support, I reverted to Firmware 1.3.1 from 1.4.0. No change.

MATE3s continuously rebooting.

Firmware 1.4.0 MATE3s is continuously rebooting, i.e., going offline and back online after a delay. Happens whether set to auto-reboot (24 hrs.) or no reboot. Have reset all wireless adapters, routers, etc. No recent changes. Connects well, but continues to go on-and-offline regularly for about a we...
