Morningstar MPPT-45 firmware update charging issues

Postby jareg » Mon Oct 29, 2018 11:09 pm

Hi All,

After updating the firmware my Morningstar MPPT-45 controller stopped charging the batteries . MSView shows the panels and batteries voltage(60V and 12.8V) but 0s for arrays or outputs.
It starts charging when power switched off/on but only for few seconds and then is back to 0s... I have not changed anything else except the firmware update.
Anyone could help with this issue, please?

Many thanks already.

Welcome to the Energy Matters Forums Jo :)

Have you checked that all your settings from before the firmware update have not been reset?

Hi Gordon,

All settings are the same. Morningstar gave me some advice but waiting for tomorrow morning.

Many thanks.

Hi All,

Just to close the subject - the controller works fine now.
It was the switch 1 in wrong position ON (should be OFF as ON is for Wind only). Funny that before the firmware update it was ON for 7 years;).
Anyway, I'd like to say thank you to Joe from MS Technical Support team - very professional, fast and efficient help. Highly Recommended.

Kind Regards,

Jo
