7 of 20 - Complete Menu Overview - Selecting Grid Standard

On the main screen there are several icons denoting the different components of the entire system. From left to right, here are what the icons represent:

  1. PV Module icon (top left):  PV arrays connected to the inverter
  2. Battery icon (top right):  high-voltage energy storage system connected to the inverter
  3. Inverter icon (middle):  Solis Energy Storage Inverter
  4. House icon (middle-top-right):  home or building that consumes power
  5. Meter icon (top-right):  meter connected to the inverter via RS-485 that is gathering net consumption data 
  6. Grid icon: (bottom-right): the grid (or utility) providing power to the home
  7. Light bulb icon: (middle-bottom-right):  backup power being consumed by the backup loads panel

There are four buttons beneath the screen that can be pressed:

  1. ESC - This is essentially a "back" button allowing you to return to the previous screen
  2. UP - Use this button to scroll up within the menus
  3. DOWN - Use this button to scroll down within the menus
  4. ENTER - This is the "select" button which lets you choose and save settings within the interface
