Bug: Multiplus II State shows External Control insted of Bulk/Absorbtion

Hi,


Since i updated two installations from 2.85 to 2.90-10 they are showing in the remote console and in VRM "external control" as state of the Multiplus II insted of Bulk or Absorbtion.

1653660118777.pngInstallation Updated on 22.05.22

1653660294696.pngInstallation 2 Updated on 27.05.22

1653660399058.pngCan someone confirm the behavior or provide a solution?

Installation:

- Cebo GX; 3x Multiplus 2 48/3000; Pylontech US2000C; some PV inverter, EM24 powermeter

Hi @wirehead

This is not a bug. It is probably rather a matter of a correction because your Multis are BMS controlled (keyword is CVL, CCL and DCL) and lithiums don't know about bulk, absorption and float.

v2.90 – September 12th 2022:

  • Inverter/chargers: show state as "Ext. control"; instead of Bulk or Absorption, when controlled by a BMS/DVCC. When controlled by a BMS the inverter/charger would never show float, which caused questions. Now it just shows externally controlled, simpler, and more accurate: there is no bulk -> absorption -> float charge algorithm when controlled by BMS.
