MX60 User Manual needed, and firmware question

Postby stevetull on Sat Mar 21, 2015 11:45 am

Does anyone know how I can get my hands on a copy of the user manual? I cannot find it on the Outback site.

Also, I've just installed two previously owned MX60's, and they have different firmware versions:
MX60 serial number MX015100 has firmware Revision 5.10
MX60 serial number MX02646 has firmware V1.2.4.4

Is this an issue,and what's the procedure to upgrade the firmware?

Thank you.

Steve,

Here's the user manual: http://legacy.outbackpower.com/pdf/manuals/mx60_pv_mppt.pdf

Not sure what to tell you about the FW.

Hi Steve,

Believe that the latest Firmware version is 5.11, but do not know the exact differences between 5.10 & 5.11 -- I have one MX that has .10 and another with .11, and see no operational differences, although my uses are not that advanced.

Customarily, the MXes had to be returned to Arlington, WA to reprogram for Firmware updates. Also believe that OB has provided boards for Field Swaps, although that procedure may be a bit involved, if the FETs need to be disconnected from the case to do this.

FWIW, Vic
