    Going on 8 hours now. Could be when we got LAN hooked up, the access point function clashed. Turning of wifi and access point seems to fix it. You can select LAN for dhcp, thinking you got all wifi off, yet there is another place in the settings you have to turn off access point.

    Its a 3 second cycle. Works fine with the gateway, works for half a day on the Insight Home. When modbus stops its response our automation sends this to us if we try a command. If we look at the display it just stops its updates. Wed, 03 Aug 2022 10:18:00 ERROR Error setting sensor...

    When I say lan i speak of the cat6 network to the router. I know XanBus is not the same. As I said, at site #1 with gateway, all has been fine 24/7 for 2 years. Its the Insight Home at site #2 that is at issue. Modbus is local and works fine at site 1, its the site with the Insight, el...

    Terminators are on the XW side, the Insight Home has no dual connectors, so we assume the Insight Home is self terminating. It is the lan solution that is in a new arena with ip or mac conflicts now. Will try factory reset and only lan down the road.

    This is identical modbus commands that work at my other location with the gateway 100% 24/7. Never a hiccup. The only variable is the gateway to insight home device.

    Problem is ... Modbus data will work for some half day and stop. A Insight power cycle will recover in 3 minutes without any restart of the code using modbus. Recently we tried using the cat6 and now have lan conflicts. Even after turning off the wifi in Insight, the conflict will resurface...

    Schneider Conext XW Pro 6848

    I see you have a 21kw genset. We almost got that but ended up with the Isuzu 4LE1 unit, same specs. How does your dual xw work with that genset ? Have you ever had to use or test the gen assist function? On another site -- My single 6848 Pro has a decrepit 7500D single diesel engine powering...

    Some of us here, like me, have probably expanded their originally permitted install. So we work in a grey area I presume. Additional panels, added with the same regard for code, should not easily trigger any insurance denial. Just be sure you have someone in the know involved with what you do...

    Has anyone had to pay for a solar rider on their home owner policy ? I had coverage in 2011 that included my solar.

    Can I assume your microinverters are all on the XW output side ? All my grid tie inverters have been hacked to off-grid, have a 5 second timeout for cycling. You know the freq shift disconnect logic. Have you been able to get the microinverters to fast cycle back on if tripped off ?

    "So, do you know what feature software version they fixed the generator qualifying issue?" At 1.11.00bn28 I don't consider AC2 qualify to be fixed, just better than 1.09 I don't run genset enough to bother with a real fix. Newer firmware always plagues me and I don't have the time to do S/E...
