Schneider Conext XW+ = What nightmares are made of

    The OP was having problems because of the battery chemistry NiFe. Crown batteries that you have do not need the higher voltage he needed. There actually has been a work-around for his battery for quite a long time but the right people at Schneider were not in the loop, for whatever reason. The problem also is that a hybrid inverter charger system is not a good first time project without a good resource. The same thing happens too often at Outback also.

     In the yachting world almost anyone with money can buy a very large boat and go up the intercoastal water way. They can safely navigate it or just write more checks as they crash their way to the next dock. That is my favorite analogy. Interesting to watch if your boat is far away.

    With my NiFe, I found, even before purchasing gear, how to set the voltage limits with the SCP.   The ComBox can do it too, and even easier.
