DA** - you logged me out after all that effort writing

Postby bushman on Thu Feb 04, 2010 7:35 am

Please warn us before logging us out, or at least save our work if you log us out. I just lost an hour of work. It is crucifying!

My RE system: 1800 Ah naval battery bank, consisting of 2 sets of 12 x 2V 900 Ah capacity lead acid unsealed cells for 24V inverter with 3kW output. Now added (June2008) 2nd inverter. Aim is to use and charge whole bank in half the time instead half the bank with one inverter. 7.5 kW diesel generator. AC side (being UK) is 240V (or 230).
LATEST UPDATE: Had a major lightning storm in July 09. Window and door handles glowing and sparking, generator was running (so charging batteries). 4 or 5 lightning bangs, then massive explosion from gen shed .... 12 out 24 900 Amp 2V cells with lids blown to kingdom come. Have now got 12 X 2V Rolls 5000 2-YS-31P cells. Wondering if Faraday cage would prevent this explosive problem in future... Will post to ask for ideas.

Would the log out be due to timing out?

Err... yes. But not necessary to cause loss without warning and opportunity to save etc - this has been answered by Outback with apologies.

Feel your pain... Because it happened to me, I started to copy/paste the messages into a blank Outlook email message to check spelling and serve as a backup.

Yeah, once burned twice shy, and never again. I now do the same, as the people who manage this for Outback appear not to have taken any notice yet of Scott's request to do something about it - like at least serving warning of imminent log-out.

Thanks for your interest.
Interesting result from your experiment. I did not time it yesterday, but I guess it was least 2-3 hours with interruptions on a message, and I got logged out. Luckily (learnt) I had saved.
I am not the only one who had this happen, and Outback have acknowledged this, so as to how it relates to individual connections and how, I simply do not know...
