P073-H: Selftest Failed

The Selftest failed.

The self-test is only applicable for Italy (directive CEI-021).
If the country is set to Italy, the self-test is available via the service menu on the display. 

The Italy Self Test is meant to check the upper and lower limits of the AC voltage and AC frequency at which the PowerRouter will disconnect from the grid.
If the test fails, the PowerRouter is not allowed to connect to the grid.

It is very important after each test, to acknowledge the outcome and press YES to continue. Without pressing YES, the test will fail.

The “Caused by” value (visible at the Events on MyPowerRouter.com) indicates why the test failed.

  • Caused by = 2 No Grid connection (U min)
  • Caused by = 3 Low U threshold exceeding max value (volt)
  • Caused by = 4 No grid connection (U max)
  • Caused by = 5 High U threshold below min value (volt)
  • Caused by = 6 No grid connect F min (Freq)
  • Caused by = 7 Low F exceeding max (Freq)
  • Caused by = 8 No grid connect F max value (Freq)
  • Caused by = 9 High F below min value (Freq)
  • Caused by = timeout value

Please perform the Selftest again (Menu, Service, Selftest) and follow the steps in the display.

1. Press yes, and use up/down to select Service.
2. Press yes, and use up/down to select Selftest.
3. Press yes to go to the Selftest.
4. Press yes to continue, or no to cancel.
5. Wait untill the grid is connect and the voltage lower trip test starts.
6. Wait untill the test is finished (Selftest OK or Selftest fail).
7. Press yes to continue.
8. Wait untill the grid is connect and the voltage upper trip test starts.
9. Wait untill the test is finished (Selftest OK or Selftest fail).
10. Press yes to continue.
11. Wait untill the grid is connect and the average voltage upper trip test starts (takes 10 minutes).
12. Wait untill the test is finished (Selftest OK or Selftest fail).
13. Press yes to continue.
14. Wait untill the grid is connect and the frequency lower trip test starts.
15. Wait untill the test is finished (Selftest OK or Selftest fail).
16. Press yes to continue.
17. Wait untill the grid is connect and the frequency upper trip test starts.
18. Wait untill the test is finished (Selftest OK or Selftest fail).
19. Press yes to continue.
20. The display should show Selftest passed. Press yes to continue.

CAUTION
If the test is cancelled the PowerRouter reacts as if the selftest failed.

If the PowerRouter switches off during the selftest, or the display shows an error, restart the PowerRouter and redo the test.
If the selftest failes the second time contact PowerRouter Support.
