XWPro firmware and Gateway simultaneous update firmware for grid and AC couple issues.

Over the weekend new firmware was made available on the Schneider site for some bug repairs and improvements. For Offgrid applications, I would wait unless your issue is listed below. This was a simultaneous release and so both firmware need to be done. As always with firmware on an inverter, insure that your power source is not the inverter being updated. It will cycle AC out.

    No Mike, the recovery bootloader was in 1.07 and later. How is the smoke up there? Still pretty bad down here. They closed Yosemite.

    Sorry to hear that Mike. You inside a cocoon I hope. We just leave the heat pump on at night and pressurize the house to insure it stays out. We run a merv 13 in a box fan to keep the air good from opening and closing doors. Nasty business in the West this year, more than I expected for sure. Those with home insurance are really going to shell it out. They know there are not enough fire people.

     Our local weather is weird because the Sierra mountains make its own up slope day wind and downslope at night.The north westerlies are too weak down here and the normal inversion layer of September is just no bueno.
