Classic lite communication with Outback Mate3
« on: November 04, 2016, 11:29:22 PM »
Hello:

I have a Gridtie hybrid inverter with battery backup installed at my property.  Is a PV array 3300 watts (2 parallel string of 6 Solar panels in series) with a Midnite Classic Lite 250 in a 4048A Radian Outback Inverter and small battery bank (106AH).  There a way to communicate the Midnite Classic Lite 250 with the MATE3 in the Radian?  Right know i can't see my solar production, If there a way to see it or I need to change the Charge controller?

Thanks

Update the controller with a MNGP :

or install an FNDC and a dedicated shunt for the charge controller only, then you can see that channel on the Mate3
