I have a 5kVA Easy Solar with (amongst other things) a Hyundai 6kW Diesel generator. The CCGX is still on the v1.x firmware (which I'm going to upgrade but there's no internet at the property so haven't got around to it yet!). Most of the time the generator will auto-start without issue, however, recently I had an issue where the charger didn't latch on to the AC from the generator. This meant that the generator just kept running while the CCGX just kept waiting.
It looks like there is functionality in the newer v2.x firmware to "Detect Generator at AC input" which will raise an alarm. Could anyone shed some light on the actual behaviour of this function? Particularly:
- Does the alarm turn off the external relay?
- Does it retry?
I'd been considering building a simple circuit to do the retry but hopefully I won't need to if it's built in to the unit.
All help appreciated!
