An Introduction to Your Solis Inverter’s Display

Once your solar power system has been installed, you generally don't have too much to worry about. Most systems will run for years with little interference or maintenance from you. However, regularly monitoring your system via the solar inverter can help you understand how the system is functioning and allow you to make any changes that could improve overall efficiency. This article will give you a quick introduction to the display screen of a Solis solar inverter so that you can do this.

The Home Screen

When you approach your solar inverter, you should see 2 of 3 lights illuminated. The first light indicates that the inverter is turned on and receiving DC power from your panels. The second light should be illuminated in green to indicate that the system usually operates and puts out AC power. The third light should still be off, as this is the alarm, and should only illuminate a problem.

Beneath these three lights, you'll see a darkened display screen. You can illuminate this screen by pushing any of the four buttons beneath it. These buttons are marked "ESC," "UP," "DOWN," and "ENTER." The illuminated screen will now alternate between 2 home screens every 10 seconds. One will show the status, which should read "generating," and the second will show the amount of power generated by the inverter listed in watts. You can use the "UP" and "DOWN" buttons to scroll between the two home screens as well.

Entering the Menu

To move away from the home screen and enter the internal menus, hit the "ENTER" button. You can then use the "DOWN" key to scroll down through the menu options. The menu options available should be as follows:



        Advanced Information

        Advanced Settings

For this article, we'll talk about the first two menu options only.

Settings Options

If you select the Settings option in the menu and hit "ENTER," it will open the Settings menu, which will give you the options to "Set Time" and "Set Address." The first option, as you might guess, allows you to set the date and time. The second option is not to put the physical address of your home. Instead, it is to number the inverters in your system if you have more than one.

Information Options

If you select the menu's information option, you'll come to a display that automatically scrolls through all data regarding energy generation, grid frequency, and other important information. If you want to monitor any specific information, you can scroll to it with "UP" and "DOWN" arrows, then lock the screen on the information you need with the "ENTER" button.

Now that you better understand the main screens on your Solis inverter, you can better monitor it for proper function.
