Absorption cycle from grid

Trying to understand why the battery bank read 25.8 amps at 6:00am and then received a couple minute absorption time from the grid then went back to acpassthru?

    Could you describe your system in more detail, as I'm reading grid and AC pass through in an off grid section. Is the reference to 25.8 amps actually voltage? Without details is a guessing game. Is this a grid tied battery backup system?

    Sorry, yes grid tied with battery backup. 25.8is actual voltage. 18 250w panels 80 600 Conext CC and Xantrax 4024 inverter/CC. Probably posted in wrong section lol.

    In that case the battery would have been almost fully charged, the brief charge would, in most likelihood, be a topping off of self discharge overnight, as 6:00am is before any realistic solar input would be available. Just my take on on things, given the details provided.

    Just so weird to do that given recharge volts are 25v

    Perhaps there is a daily  system check, which is a default, I know Morningstar has such a feature, but this is only speculation. You could always ask tech support, they may provide some insight.
