Ohhh...I can't say for sure. I'll definitely give you a call when I have a beta unit ready.

Marc what changes could be made to the MPT3024 to raise the max voltage above 60 volts so three 12 volt nominal panels could be seriesed for a 24 volt battery bank to handle hot weather issues and better morning/evening harvests?

FWIW, what I learned reading the content here today convinced me not to buy the BZ MPPT250 controller, and to cough up the extra dough for the Rogue unit. Mark in Oregon, I just ordered your Rogue unit! Send me one of your latest and greatest!
I've also decided, based on this post, to rewire my six 15W PV panel array as two sets of three panels, with the three 15W panels wired in parallel (12V), and the two sets of three panels wired in series to generate 24V to the charge controller.
My bank is eight 6V Exide GC-5 batteries, wired in series to create four 12V batteries which are joined in parallel. If I understand correctly, sending 24V down to the Rogue MPT-3024 will allow it to charge the 12V battery bank at a higher current rate than compared to with all six PV panels wired in parallel to send 12V to the controller, rather than 24V.
