    MT50 Remote Not Working With Tracer2210AN Controller



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    I'll be contacting EP Solar about this problem but I thought the brains trust is worth a shot as well.

    I have a MT50 remote unit which has worked perfectly for over a year with a LS1024B PWM controller but won't fire up with the Tracer2210AN MPPT controller I've just fitted. The display on the Tracer works as it should but communication with the MT50 aint happening. When I connect the MT50 it lights up and shows ''welcome'' on the screen then goes to ''connecting'' and just hangs there. Using the same double ended RJ45 comms cord which always worked with the previous controller.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    I use a Tracer 2215BN with the MT50 OK
    I'm sure they're compatable as they're sold together here EPEVER Tracer2210AN 10A MPPT Solar Charge Controller + MT50 Negative Ground 695968737046 | eBay

    Is the RJ45 cable from the old system?, maybe different pinout

    If you look at this listing the MT50 cable supplied is connected with a USB->RJ45 cable

    Just what I was thinking, although I can see no clear statement of a change of compatibility between the different controllers. The MT50 is still supplied with the double ended RJ45 connector and as far as I can make out the cable you mention if to give you the option of connecting to a computer.

    Confusing innit?

    Cheers

    So does that mean RS485 is what I should try? I thought RJ45 described the connectors only and the configuration of the cable (pinout if you like) is the variable. I'll have play about with some Ethernet type cables I have.

    Watch this space ...

    So there we have it.

    Hi Harold,

    I am really sorry but a year old MT50 will not work with the new AíNí series of controllers rather than A series. As such you will need to purchase a new MT50 which will be compatible with the controller. We have worked with the manufacturer to try find a patch but unfortunately it is something fundamental which canít be fixed this way and as such if you purchase a new MT50 compatible with AN then this will work, annoyingly the new MT50 will also work with your old controller.

    Really sorry about this as we have had some rare issues of this with other old customers hoping their old MT50ís will work and as the old stock has now sold out there is nothing we can do.

    Best regards,
