Xantrex RS2000 only reports float mode
« on: August 21, 2010, 01:56:02 PM »
OK fellas...

Perhaps one or more of you august individuals could explain why my Xantrex RS2000 inverter/charger will not report to the panel monitor that regardless of the current flow (0 amps through 99 amps) will report that the charger is in FLOAT mode.  it never indicates BULK or ABSORPTION as one would think.  And, yes, I have talked to the nice tech at Xantrex.  He had no reasonable explanation, only that it was working as it should be.

Please excuse the interruption of flow in this thread.

Hi Wendell!

I had the same problem and talked to Xantrex about it a long time ago,  they wanted me to upgrade the firmware.

Check your software version:  Menu> System> System Settings> View Device Info

The latest version (AFAIK) is 1.03.00

Hmmm.. You are more current than me.

I'd give Xantrex a call Monday.
