Evidently Schneider found a software timing issue and there is a firmware fix in test. I'm told it will fix the problem. Sandra/Schnieder is working on getting me the proper parts to make the AC panel's bypass functionality work while I'm waiting for the firmware.

I am glad they found this bug! Hope you get it up and running soon. I see that the Stacking ports are not used according to the manual, one wonders why they are there in shipping hardware if they are redundant....
I have this inverter and its excellent. Have not attempted any stacking as yet. Do you think [email protected] would be receptive to a firmware feature suggestion? Currently when the CSW qualifies an AC input, it activates the relay and charges/passes-through. I wish they would put in an Outback HBX like functionality where the inverter would qualify AC but only switch to it when the batteries were low. Thats how we tend to do "off-grid" solar here in the Caribbean where we use AC in as a backup as the Sun is mostly very reliable.

As of now the Conext SW needs separated Input and Output neutrals only on the duals. If you look at the E-Panel wiring diagram here it shows it pretty well:http://www.midnitesolar.com/pdfs/MNSW2524D-2CL150-REVB.pdf
Our next revision sheetmetal has a 3 pole breaker that will connect those neutrals when bypassed.

Schneider replaced my 2 conext 4024s, 2 dc panels, ac panel, and stacking kit with 2 XW4024s and relevant panels. A year later from the original problem and dual conext system was still having issues. I was having intermittent faults, charging problems, incorrect SCP load readings and the other issues mentioned earlier. I basically went a year without being able to have the generator configured to start automatically. So I asked for replacements and they offered the XWs. Being a year later is unfortunate, but at least Schneider didn't give up.
Hopefully the XWs work out. With hands on installation experience with both, I can say the XW's are a much more refined product. Everything from the packaging, the manuals, to the design of the panels is superior to the conext series.

We are having a similar issue with stacking our SW 4024 's and trying to decide whether to try to fight through it with Schneider or take a loss and get a new Magnum system. How has your system been working since installing the XWs? Any hiccups?
I guess it could be also becsuse of some wrong inverter parameters settings . Bcause my conext sw2425 was working fine for about 4 years.but oneday i changed the device parameters setting in inverter mode section through conext combox from master stand alone to single fase stand alone, becaue i have only have one set inverter so there are no master or slave are working togather, i thought that was right thing thing to but it is not .. it was fool thing to do since my device was woking fine for 4 years with no issue .. and after i changed this setting my problem started , and when the generator switch off my device made that sound which was mentioned here in this forum and loaded to YouTube ..
I just wants to share that with you it might help someone .. make sure about the inverter mode parameters setting with your applicable situation accordingly..
