Shore power limit on MultiPlus Compact 12/2000/80-50 120V keeps setting itself to 8.5 Amps

The MultiPlus 12/2000/80-50 has a minimum shore power limit of - 4.5A according to minimum shore current limits 07-2019.xls which I downloaded from victron. When I set the CCGX to 4.5 and exit the menu, the value pops back up to 8.5A. Why might this be happening and how can I get it to 4.5Amps? I also tried to set it via a bluetooth smart dongle. Same behavior.

Could it be that the rating/spreadsheet is not for North America at 120 Volts and only 4.5A for 220V? That would really be disappointing and should probably be mentioned on the spreadsheet. Also I can't turn off power boost, I need it.


Thanks!


James

Hi @James Demetriou

I think you may be misreading that spreadsheet. Your unit is listed under ID 2708 (27 means 120V) at 8.4A.

I think your setting (in VE config) does noet allow manual changing in the CCGX.
You need to change your settings.

(I have the generator fixed and the shore power amps manually changing allowed)

Thank you for pointing out the proper line item on the spreadsheet.
