    From 'crewzer' in thread:
    http://forum.solar-electric.com/showthread.php?t=8162

    "XW inverter/chargers loaded with the latest firmware (so-called "1.5") now support AC-coupling."

    It seems he is not sure what 'so called 1.5' means in terms of actual release number.

    The XW-6048 firmware isn't listed that would do AC coupling, for that mater the 1.4 isn't listed either which I've run for some time. AC coupling has nothing to do with the XW-MPPT , which does have the 1.5 version, that fixed the charge state bugs

    Did you get the rev 1.4 XW6048 SW in a new production unit or did you get and load the update?

    Any idea what production date would have the XW inverter SW capable of ACout GT inverter AC coupling?

    Got the 1.04 last year from engineering contacts ...

    As for AC coupling, Jim/Crewzers post was the first I head about it ... since he is a Xantrex employee he is the best contact for release information.

    Dudes i downloaded the wrong firmware with my xw tool and my system would not work, xantrex sent me a replacement board and i installed it successfully (it was easy)

    be careful with the xw tool uploading frimawre . Do not download the wrong one or you will be sorry!!!

    Thank god and xantrex in that order!!

    Just an FYI. If you had first saved the configuration, you would have been able to revert back in most cases. Glad that all is well!
