 ==== Err 20 - Maximum Bulk-time exceeded ==== ==== Err 20 - Maximum Bulk-time exceeded ====
-This error can only occur when the maximun bulk-time protection is active. 
-This error will not auto-reset. 
-This error is generated when the battery-absorption-voltage is not reached after 10 hours of charging. 
  
-This protection is default disabled ​in all Solar Chargers.+=== Solar Chargers === 
 +The maximum bulk time protection is a feature that was in the chargers when they were just released (2015 or earlier) and later the feature was removed.
  
-It is default enabled on the Skylla-i and the Skylla IP44.+If you do see this error, then update to the latest firmware.
  
-Our advice is to not enable it on solar chargers.+If you then still have the error, perform a reset to factory defaults of the configuration,​ and reconfigure the solar charger.

 +This protection is default enabled on the Skylla-i and the Skylla IP44.

 +This error is generated when the battery-absorption-voltage is not reached after 10 hours of charging.
  
 +The feature of this safety protection is to detect a shorted cell; and stop charging. ​

 Note that (solar-)chargers automatically configure themselves to be BMS-controlled when they are connected to one; either direct or via a Color Control GX or Venus GX. Note that (solar-)chargers automatically configure themselves to be BMS-controlled when they are connected to one; either direct or via a Color Control GX or Venus GX.

 +==== Err 68 - Network misconfigured ====
 +
 +The charger detects multiple conflicting network sources trying to take control of the charger.
 +
 +Applies to SmartSolar MPPTs and SmartSolar MPPTs VE.Can.
 +
 +The typical reason for the error to show is that the charger is configured to operate in parallel using our [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​victronconnect:​ve-smart-networking|wireless VE.Smart protocol]]; and at the same time it is part of an [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ess:​start|Energy Storage System (ESS)]]. Or its used in an installation with an intelligent battery. In all those cases, the charger is being externally controlled (by ESS and/or intelligent battery), and should therefor not at the same time be configured for parallel operation.
 +
 +Resolution: disable the parallel operation by connecting VictronConnect,​ going to settings, then "​VE.Smart networking"​ and choose "Leave network"​.
 +
 +For SmartSolar MPPT VE.Can only, also make sure its not connected to a [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​venus-os:​start|GX Device]] via both VE.Can and VE.Direct. Either disconnect the VE.CAN cable or the VE.Direct cable.
 +
 +Once the conflict is resolved the error will disappear and the charger will resume normal operation, usually within a minute.

 If the error is only present in the history data and the unit operates normally this error can be ignored safely. Explanation:​ when the units power up for the very first time in the factory, it does not have calibration data and an error 116 is logged. Obviously this should have been cleared, but in the beginning units left the factory with this message still in the history data. If the error is only present in the history data and the unit operates normally this error can be ignored safely.

 +SmartSolar models (not the BlueSolar models): upgrading to v1.4x firmware is a one-way trip, you cannot go back to an older firmware version once you upgrade to v1.4x. Reverting to older firmware gives error 116 (calibration data lost), this can be fixed by re-installing the v1.4x firmware.
