Multi Plus Compact - in Passthru mode ?

hi there,

we have a MultiPlus Compact 12/1200/50-16 that seems to be stuck in passthru mode once it completes the bulk charge and never gets to Float and storage this site is slightly different where is has a Energy Meter ET112 to keep track of the AC input power used as we need to power for the grid power used

thoughts on how this can be fixed ?

thanks

If you disable the Grid Meter does it leave passthru mode after 10 minutes or a restart?

The causes of Passthru are usually addressed by one of the issues in Question 4 of the ESS FAQ.

hi Guy,

thanks for your reply can to tell me how to disable the Grid meter ? can this be done from the CGX ?

Hi @Justin

you can do this in the ESS-menu (yes in GX device, either on screen or with remote-console)

@Justin it seems that you do not have ESS assistant programmed on your inverter.

Try on the CCGX in the Settings → Energy Meters menu

I don't think you can software disconnect it from there though

do i need to enable ESS on the multiplus ? - what effects will it have ?

do i need a firmware update ? all we use the energy meter for is calculate the total power used as we are on another companies power feed and we have to pay them for power
