Samlex Control; Alarm: CPF09 Heat Sink SR Open
Have been checking the Samlex control for the batteries regularily and this morning saw the "Alarm" code shown above. It is -22F this morning in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The manual says re the code, "operating temperature is below 0C (32F). Ensure operating temperature is above 0C (32F). I have been keeping the solar panel clear of snow and two days ago when I checked the control panel said 13 volts. Soooooo, should I be concerned? I mean this is just the beginning of winter temps here. It will go to -40 or lower sometime this winter. Does this error code mean the controller will cease to work and I will not know what the battery voltage will be until spring? Not sure what to do or think!
Hey Albertan Escapee's: What's your experience? You get the below Zero temps and leave the batteries installed... right?
