7 of 20 - Inverter Menu Overview and Selecting the 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
