TRIStar MPPT 45 Custom Settings with switches 6-7-8 set to on-on-off
I have been experimenting and building an Off-Grid system to run a variety of equipment during the day and night. The system works well except the Charge Controller always goes into absorption mode regardless of the charge state that it has seen after leaving it's last absorption session. I have asked tech support and was politely told to look at using custom settings. I have 5, 12 volt sets of 420AH L-16's. They have both a direct path to charge controller or they be charged via a diode path that lets them charge independently. The whole system is manged by a PLC that controls usage and charging based on AMP-Hours drawn and other parameters. I have monitored and charted the 24 hour and 48 hours charge patterns, via MSView, and no matter what I do it goes into absorption mode when it is able to start charging after being in night mode. During night mode the battery voltage stays above 12.70. I have not been able to find much information on the units default setup for the L-16 settings. It also has many other configurations via setup. Does anyone know where I can find more information on the MPPT custom settings? Thanks for any help in advance.
