Alerts

  • ALERT messages are notifications that are posted on the LCD when major events like protections or limiting occur.
  • The alert message will remain on the LCD screen until the user acknowledges the alert with a short press on the SETTINGS/INFO button.
  • Alerts will remain in the message menu until the condition that caused the alert is cleared.
  • Alert messages will wake the display if the display is off or in blackout mode.
  • TODO: refer to temperature limits in product spec; consider separating these by another layer, e.g. section for temperature, section for overload, etc.

    I have a Pro4000 plus a tank and went from 60% to 0% in two days running only a 12v refrigerator in cool Seattle weather. I'ver tried all the reboots, power recycling and resets with no luck. Tank is flashing red ERROR light. Will not charge. 

    Row 1: ALERT -
    Row 2: BATTERY
    Row 3: FAULT

    Row 1: WARNING -
    Row 2: BATTERY
    Row 3: CHGMOSERR

    Please advise.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. The unit was beeping weirdly. Not working now, won't power anything, won't charge itself, LCD screen not working. There's no information online about these messages that I could find.

    Part 2: Sunday PM. I have the Pro4000 up to 100% now. Tank is unplugged and still at 0%.

    This time I disconnected all input and output ports and restarted one more time, leaving the tank disconnected. Odd that neither the High Voltage AC nor the Low Voltage AC charging inputs worked, yet the Low Voltage DC charging input did start charging (from the starter Sprinter battery). Still concerned that Tank will not take a charge.

    Part 3: Called Tech Support (Monday). They said this has happened ago a few customers and resolved it by following these steps:

    1) took me thru another reset unplugging all input devices
    2) turning both units on and off, with 10-30second wait in between
    3) resetting the Tank holding the Function button for 10 seconds
    4) resetting the Pro4000 by pressing the Settings button for 30 seconds (this is only thing I didn't try before)
    5) plugging in all 4 inputs back in (2 DC, 2 AC)

    Results:
    1) Tank now Status green
    2) Battery positive charge status blinking with 1 light
    3) Tank still at 0% charge and still flashing red ERROR light (Mobile app says Tank at 100%, which is absolutely wrong)
    4) Told to fully charge system, I only have 15 amp AC so now waiting ~6 hours for Pro4000 and Tank to equalize
    5) Once system equalizes and shows both units at 100%, told to discharge system to 0-20%, then charge back up again.
    6) Told that a 0% discharge will not hurt the system and you should be able to charge right back up again within a few days. Obviously, this didn't work for me.

    I believe one of my restarts with a disconnected battery in Part 2 was the key to enable Low Voltage charging again.

    Good Tech Support but sure wish they were around on weekends!

    Still curious what would cause a total discharge from 60% in just 2 days? I have Case #38-48-978 to follow up if needed.

    Hope this helps!
