    Hi all, slightly different tack here if I may?
    My metalian Maxi came with a HcDP board (MK4). All works really well so far -so good. For the first time yesterday I connected my solar board to the system. The little internal fan comes on immediately and the SP light illuminates. But flashes!? The others, ac and dc do not flash when charging. Also the red display records voltages of 14.3 odd, whilst when on ac it records a steady 13.9 odd. What have I done, am doing wrong?
    Thanking you knowledgeable folk in advance😀

    Dont know about the flashing light on SP. But 14.3V is about right and 13.9V is maintenance voltage.

    I am however sure my SP light does not flash.

    The fan coming on is also very normal

    I don't hear any alarm bells but the flashing sp light puzzles me. I am trying to get hold of Manie, he will know why, who said and what for.

    Thanking you Meneer. I got very little paper - work with the panel. I have looked up some on the net. was hoping some one out there would say "that's what it should do."😁

    From another thread.

    When flashing green it means that the battery is fully charged and that the charger has disconnected itself from the battery and is only monitoiring the battery voltage. If the battery voltage drops below a certain value it will resume charging and the LED will turn ON orange, green or flashing green dependiung on the battery state.

    Thus:
    Orange is fast charge
    Green is trickle charge
    Flashing green is fully charged
    Red is battery fault or intermittent battery connection (reset by switchinjg AC charger ON and OFF)
    Flashing green and orange alternatively means thet the charger does not see a battery

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Manie

    Henk, i imagine if we pick at it - it clearly says new AC charger. It does not say SP. Although it blinks at the 1hz rate and the battery is full and already in the green mode. Not flashing yet. Despite being on for nearly a month yet with no load applied. Do we think the same can be said for the SP charger?

    I will discus this with Manie next week, I pulled him from his holiday to reply and probably did not get the right message across. Cell connection was up to maggots

    Yip. That was me.

    We did quite a trip, 5002 k's now in total and we just arrived home. Rain chased us from that area... We made a run for home. Our camp was flooding. Literally! I had to dig trenches to aid drainage and all that. Yuk. I like camping and can handle rain but not with small kids.

    All the rain did make the visit across the Kei river interesting. Shot up to the Jacaranda shipwreck. Weeee.

    Very nice Dale. Some photos? I also got home today, just over 4000 km. Had great weather everywhere we went.

    A car full of people and driving that rig in traffic takes some concentration.

    Will post a few pics when I catch up with duties. Had some serious mud on way home, combined with all that rain my stuff is dirty and wet.
