    Have you contacted Schneider?

    That's awful dusty for the inside of an inverter. Even if they are left outside they should be inside a reasonable environment with some air filtration. I live on a dust road and my inverters have always lived outside and are not as dusty, though they are in a box with air filtration.

    A layer of dust insulates electrical components not allowing them to cool as expected. If they can't be put in a less dusty environment. Some companies make sealed units. I know Outback for one does...

    Hi vetah,   welcome to the Forum,

    It is a bit difficult to see,   but,   it looks that the device,   circled in red,   has its top blown off,  or incinerated.   It looks like it is/was an IC.

    If the above is generally correct,   this is often caused by massive overvoltage,   or over-current.

    There a number of  things that can cause this type of situation.   Perhaps  Lightning (?).

    Just some guesses,   good luck,   Vic

    Three phase power or 3 XW's ?  I would doubt where you are, that you are close to service? I would doubt even more if there was a source of parts there for someone who was skilled and knew the part numbers. You can click on the link to Schneider solar who sell the XW's you have below. Good Luck!
