MultiPlus Input current limit unable to set below 4.5 amps

I have a MultiPlus 24/3000/70-50 with a Color Controller. After a firmware update, I am unable to set the Input current below 4.5 amps. If I select a value less than 4.5 amps on the Color Controller the value goes to 4.5 amps.


Interestingly, if I set 2.5 amps (and have the system not accept the value and display 4.5 amps) and then use the Remote VE Configure the 2.5 amp setting is present in the file. The system still displays and uses 4.5 amps as the limit.


I have attempted to change the setting via the remote VE Configure as well and am still stuck at 4.5 amps. The system will happily accept larger values.


My back up charging from the engine alternators requires a 2.5 amp setting. Thanks for any assistance.


The Color Controller is running firmware v2.84.

Thanks @Alexandra. I turned off PowerAssist and can get the setting back to the 2.5 amps that my back up charging requires.
