 +    * In some cases a single-phase PV inverter may deliver power at 240V or 208V across two downstream phases, such as in a residential split-phase configuration in North America. ​ In this case the setting will not be set to Multi-phase automatically and you need to select //​Split-phase (L1+L2)//. This instructs the CCGX to divide the measured incoming power evenly across the two phases for display and accounting purposes.

 ==== 2.3 Device scan details ==== ==== 2.3 Device scan details ====
 As mentioned above the CCGX should find all Fronius inverters automatically. It will scan all IP-addresses in the local network (that is, all IP-addresses within the netmask assigned to the CCGX) to check whether or not they are //Fronius datamanager//​ cards. This scan will be performed during CCGX startup; whenever the CCGX loses connection to a data card; and a scan can also be initiated manually by selecting 'Press to scan'. As mentioned above the CCGX should find all Fronius inverters automatically.

This scan will be performed during CCGX startup; whenever the CCGX loses connection to a data card; and a scan can also be initiated manually by selecting 'Press to scan'.
Line 91: Line 97:
 All data cards found will be entered in the '​Detected data cards' list. The CCGX will regularly (once every minute) scan the IP-addresses in this list in order to find new data cards, or reconnect to data cards whenever the connection was lost. All data cards found will be entered in the '​Detected data cards' list.

-If you changed ​to //TCP// port number on the data manager, you should change this setting on the CCGX, too (TCP port) otherwise leave the setting at its default (80).+If you don't want an automatic scan to be performed, disable the //Automatic scanning// setting on the PV-inverters menu.

 +=== Inverter status ===
 +
 +The following status values are supported:
 +^ State ^ Meaning ^
 +| Standby | The PV-inverter is not generating power. |
 +| Startup | The PV-inverter is starting up, but not generating power yet. |
 +| Running (MPPT) | The PV-inverter is running at maximum power. |
 +| Running (Throttled) | The PV-inverter is running, but power is being throttled. |
 +| Error | One or more errors are present.\\ Note that not all errors will cause the PV-inverter to shut down. |
