Re: Backup not coming up

I have worked in IT for over 20 years, I feel like someone that called in because the computer isn't working only to find out it wasn't plugged in..

I think I might go with old age on this one, I heard when I turned 50 it was all going downhill after that.

Thanks again folks.

Re: Backup not coming up

It sounds like the inverter recognizes when the grid (AC IN) is dropped, but not that it has a load (AC OUT) to feed. Is the inverter status = ON? Screenshot_20220120-134952_Firefox.jpg Perhaps using another Mode besides Grid Tie would give a hint. Maybe try UPS, or even Support, as a test. In the ...

Re: Backup not coming up

I am running in Grid Tie mode with auto switching turned off. I don't know what auto switching is. But from the sound of it, having it switched off could very well be the reason your system doesn't switch over to backup your critical loads. Whatever it is, maybe try turning it on? hi Mike, Thanks f...

Re: Backup not coming up

Hi Team! Well it's been a few months and I am still experiencing the same problem but I have taken some action. I knew I was on borrowed time so I ordered 8 KiloVault PLC 2100 batteries and have them installed. It took several months to get them delivered from the time I ordered them. What are the s...

Re: Backup not coming up

When I ran the test tonight there was only a few LED lights on so not sure what's going on. We have had our old GVFX inverter on these same batteries and we only use them in backup power situations so they have been great. I checked the voltage of the batteries when the main power breaker was off an...

Re: Backup not coming up

I flipped the breaker in my main house panel and the critical circuits immediately went offline. When I flipped the breaker back on it was a smooth 5 min and the circuits came back on, you could hear the inverter click over. Can you think of any settings that could be keeping me from working correct...

Re: Backup not coming up

The plan is tonight when solar is not producing to flip the main breaker and see if the critical circuits stay up. Right now the voltages of the batteries are good according to the Flexnet and I also put a meter on it to verify what the inverter is seeing is accurate and it matches. The production i...

Re: Backup not coming up

I knew the battery string was a little small and I am in the process of doubling it but there is almost no load on the critical circuits. I was curious of the batteries would keep it from making the switch but if there is no load to speak of then I'm still in the same position I think. Thank you for...

Re: Backup not coming up

Batteries are Trojan T105's in 1 string for 48 volts. The inverter is in Grid Tie mode because I sell back to the grid. All of the battery info seems to be good for charging parameters. I am an open book and clearly willing to stipulate I don't have the answer so thank you for stepping in so quick t...

Backup not coming up

Team, I upgraded from an GVFX 3524 to the Radian 8048 and the Mate3s using the two FlexMax 80's I already had. Everything has been operating perfectly with my panels, battery charging etc. We experienced a power outage today but my inverter never made the switch and my critical circuits did not stay...

No idea where to start

My system has been running for 4 years without fail. I noticed yesterday that I was not making any power according to my charge controllers displays. I am watching it now and its full sun outside but no results. I have two 80's, both show some power coming in a little going out. I know I am being so...
