Hello, my name is Colin and I’m with Go Solar. This is going to be an inverter walkthrough. We’re just going to go over some of the basic components of your inverter as well as a few extra outside pieces that correlate to your system and its functionality. So, we’ll start with the inverter, then we’ll go to your secure power supply and then we’ll go into the rapid shut down switch.
So if we look on the upper-left side of the inverter, you’ll notice your solar DC disconnect. So this is essentially a breaker between your Inverter and the solar array or arrays that you have. You’ll notice when it’s on, you’ll have a 1 right here, just short for binary, and this circular dial will be a vertical position. If we turn that off, it’s counterclockwise. You’ll notice that’s a 0. Of course that will be parallel or horizontal. Same when we turn that back on will come out that would be vertical. You’ll notice the 1. So that is how you operate your solar DC disconnect.
So we’ll talk about your lights on your inverter face plate. You will notice you have three capsule shaped lights, I will start from left to work or way to the right. This first one will flash green or pulse screen. More importantly, you’ll notice that fade in and fade out. That means you are producing solar electricity and able to back feed that to the grid. You will see that every day. But it is important to keep in mind that that will go off at night.
Obviously, when no sun is hitting your panels, you will not produce anything. So at nighttime you see that off do not worry. The next light is an event light, so that light will typically come on if there’s some kind of an issue with your system. However the only exception to that is if your power is out that light will come on just basically stating that it has or senses a disk disconnection from the grid. So if you see that your power is out. Do not worry about that.
