RE Owners Manual
Battery connections are for disconnection only, NOT for current
interruption.
General Precautions
Do not expose the inverter/charger to direct water spray, rain, or
snow.
To reduce the risk of a fire hazard, do not cover or obstruct the
ventilation openings.
Do not install the inverter in a zero clearance compartment. This
may result in overheating and/or diminished performance.
To avoid the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, do
not use attachments not recommended or sold by Vanner
Incorporated.
Vanner recommends that all AC and DC electrical wiring be
performed by a licensed electrician or a qualified technician to
ensure compliance with all applicable national and local wiring
regulations.
To avoid a risk of fire and/or electrical shock, always verify wiring
connections are in good electrical condition. All external
conductors must use proper wire size to avoid dangerous
overheating and/or diminished performance.
If the inverter has been dropped or damaged in any way, do not
operate the inverter until it has been verified to be safe by a
qualified technician.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always disconnect the AC
and DC connections using the code required AC and DC
disconnects. The On/Off switch only turns off the Inverter
electronics. Dangerous AC and DC Voltages Are Still Present!
The inverter must be properly grounded in accordance with local
and national codes and ordinances before operation. For most
installations, the negative (ground) conductor should be bonded
to the grounding system at one and only one point in the system.
For optimum inverter/charger performance, battery temperature
should be above 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

Important Safety Instructions
Do not disassemble the inverter/charger. See the service section
of this manual for instructions on obtaining service. Attempting
to service the inverter yourself may result in a risk of electrical
shock, fire and/or loss of warranty.
Always use service disconnects to break the circuit before
attempting any kind of servicing of the RE-4500. DO NOT attempt
to service the unit while still actively connected to a power
source of any kind.
Explosive Gas Precautions
This equipment contains components, which tend to produce arcs
or sparks. To prevent fire or explosion, do not install in
compartments containing batteries or flammable materials, or in
locations that require ignition protected equipment. This includes
any space containing gasoline-powered machinery, fuel tanks, or
joints, fittings, or other connections between components of the
fuel system.
To reduce the risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions,
the battery manufacturer instructions, and the instructions of the
manufacturer of the equipment in which the battery is installed.
Working near a lead-acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate
explosive gases during normal battery operation.
Battery Precautions
Always have someone within range of your voice to come to your
aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.
Have close access to plenty of fresh water and soap in case
battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
Always wear complete eye protection and clothing protection.
Avoid touching eyes while working near batteries.
If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with
soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with
running cold water for at least 20 minutes. Get medical attention
immediately.
NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame near a battery. Gases
produced by batteries are explosive.

System Operation
Description
This section of the Owner’s manual will cover command and
control of the system, and also describe the different
components that make up the RE-4500.
The RE-4500 is an Inverter/Charger system that has the
capability of drawing power from the grid or selling excess
power back to the grid, and creating split-phase 240 VAC from
a nominal 24 VDC source (RE24-4500), or a nominal 48VDC
source (RE48-4500). This DC source can consist of both
Photovoltaic Modules and lead acid batteries of Flooded Cell,
Gel Cell, or AGM types.
Warning
It is important not to mix types of batteries in a string. Mixing
different types of batteries could result in death, explosion, or fire,
which would damage equipment and void the warranty.
The RE-4500 also has the capability of charging the battery
bank from the grid itself, in the event that solar power is not
available and the batteries are discharged.
Figure 5-1: Block Diagram shows the components of the RE4500.

The components that make up the RE are:
•
System Controller Board
The System Controller is the brain of the system that
monitors and controls the operations of the system. It
receives commands from the user entered on the RE-ICC,
and executes those commands to control the system. It
controls all system operations: Inverting, Charging, GridTie, and Generator Control.
•
Large Inverter/Charger
The Large Inverter/Charger is responsible for converting
the DC Voltage from the batteries and the photo-voltaic
modules to split phase, 240 VAC. When in “Charger”
mode, if the batteries are low, this component will convert
the 240VAC from the Grid to the DC Voltage (either
24VDC or 48VDC, depending on the system) to charge the
batteries if they are low. The Large Inverter/Charger is
used by the system if the power required by the load is in
the range of 75 to 4500 watts.

System Operation Description
Modes of Operation
The RE-4500 operates in three modes:
•
Inverting
•
Charging
•
Grid-interactive
This section will describe these and any sub-modes within
them, and their respective faults.
The RE-4500 is designed so that if there is a fault the RE-4500
will shutdown. If the fault condition goes away, the inverter
will restart after 5 minutes in “Auto Recovery” mode.
The next Sections will describe these three modes of operation.
Inverting
When the grid is not available and the batteries have enough
charge then the RE-4500 generates AC power. The 240 VRMS
three-wire output will deliver a continuous 18.75 ARMS @
25°C. Also, if Charging is not enabled and AC Power is
present, then the inverter will run phase-locked to the Grid.
Load Demand (Load Discover)
The inverter does “load demand” to improve efficiency when
the small inverter is not installed and the option is enabled. The
default settings are “Load Demand: ON” and 10 W to enter
load demand (start pulsing) and 75 W to leave load demand
(generate a constant voltage). When the load falls below 10 W
there will be a 5-second delay (default setting) before pulsing
begins.

Small Inverting
The inverter uses the small inverter when it is installed and the
option is enabled to improve efficiency. The default settings
are “Load Demand: ON” and 10 W to use the small inverter
and 75 W to switch to the large inverter. When the load falls
below 10 W there will be a 5-second delay (default setting)
before switching.
Normal Inverting
“Normal Inverting” is defined as inverting when the load
current is below the maximum (default setting) of 18.75 ARMS.
The inverter generates a constant voltage. 120 VRMS is the
default L1 to Neutral setting. If the current rises above 18.75
ARMS, then the inverter starts surging.
Surging
“Surging” occurs when the load current is above (default
setting) of 18.75 ARMS. For three seconds the inverter attempts
to generate a constant voltage at its default voltage setting. The
inverter will respond and shut down (depending on the load) as
shown in the diagram below.

Low Battery Shutdown
There are two cases that will trigger a low battery shutdown. In
one case, there is no AC present to charge the batteries and in
the other, charging is disabled. When a low battery shutdown
occurs the inverter will not restart until the battery voltage rises
above the Battery shutdown voltage.
The assumption is that there is another source for battery
charging. This avoids cycling the inverter Off and On and
possibly harming the batteries when they are discharged.

Charging
When the battery voltage falls below the DC Warning level
(default setting / 22 VDC for RE24-4500, 44 VDC for the RE484500), power is taken from the grid and used to fully charge
the batteries starting with Bulk charging. The RE-4500 will
charge the batteries at unity power factor using the full VA
rating of the charger.
The RE-4500 is capable of a maximum charging current of
100ADC.
There are several types of charging modes used by the RE4500 listed below: It should be noted that the numbers for the
below examples are listed for a 24 Volt RE24-4500 with the
numbers for the RE48-4500 in parentheses and Bold italics.
•
Bulk
During Bulk charging the system first presents a
constant DC current to the battery while watching for
the Bulk voltage end limit. The defaults are 100 ADC
and 28.4 VDC respectively (50 ADC and 56.8 VDC for
the RE48). Next, the system holds the battery at the
Bulk voltage 28.4 VDC (56.8 VDC for 48VDC) while
watching for the DC current to drop to the Absorption
current of 10 ADC (56.8 VDC). Then the system does
Absorption charging.
•
Absorption
Absorption charging is a constant current charging
mode with a time out. The system again begins by
directing a constant DC current into the battery (up to
50 ADC (25 ADC)) while watching for the Absorption
voltage limit of 30 VDC (60VDC). If either of these
limits are hit (or 15 minutes passes), then the system
switches to Float charging.
•
Float
Float charging is a constant voltage charging mode
with a current limit. The factory setting is 26.4 VDC
(56.8 VDC ). If the Absorption current limit is hit 50
ADC (25 ADC), then the system resumes Bulk charging.

System Operation Description
•
Equalize
Equalize charging is the only charge mode that the
RE-4500 does not enter automatically. During Float
charging, the user turns on Equalize charging with the
RE-ICC remote. Equalize charging is another constant
current charging mode with a time out. The system
again directs the constant DC Absorption current (10
ADC for 24VDC, -5 ADC for 48VDC) into the battery
while monitoring the Absorption voltage limit of 31
VDC (62 VDC). Once the limit is encountered or 15
minutes has passed, the system either continues or
begins Float charging.
Battery Temperature Sensor
A user-installed option is an external, battery temperature
sensor. It provides for battery overheat detection (default 120
°F), and battery voltage temperature compensation during
charging. The following section describes how the “Battery
Temperature Compensation for Charging” feature works.
•
The default setting is 3.6 mVDC / °C. The factory setting
for this option is “OFF.” It may be turned “On” with the
RE-ICC remote.
•
The compensation value only affects the charging voltages
when the battery temperature is above 77 °F. This is a
safety feature to avoid applying excessive battery voltage
when battery temperatures are low.
•
The compensation value affects each of the battery Float,
Bulk, Absorption and Equalization values, and charging
modes. For example if the Float battery setting is 26.0 VDC,
and the battery temperature is 107 °F, and the battery
temperature coefficient is -10 mV / °F then the float value
used by the software will be 26.0 VDC - {10 mV / °F ×
(107° F - 77 °F) × 12 cells} = 22.4 VDC.
•
The default setting for “High Battery Temperature”
shutdown is 140°F (60°C). This setting is the upper limit of
battery temperature compensation.

Generator Start Option
This is how the “Generator Start” option for the inverter works:
•
If the option is “ON”, the generator start relay is activated
when the battery voltage falls below the “Low Battery
Threshold” level. “Low Battery Threshold” is settable from
the RE-ICC remote.
•
The RE-4500 looks at the Bulk charge current 4 minutes
(default) after switching on the relay if the AC input is
good and the system is charging.
•
The relay is switched off after the Bulk charge current has
fallen below a current threshold value for 4 minutes
(default). Once again, the “current threshold” is settable
from the RE-ICC remote.
•
The factory settings for “Low battery threshold” and
“current threshold” are 22.5 VDC and 5 ADC respectively for
the RE24-4500 system. For a 48VDC system the factory
settings “Low battery threshold” and “current threshold”
are 44VDC and 2.5 ADC This option is factory set to “ON.”
The relay is used only with a 2-wire generator start.
In order for the Generator Start function to work, the menu
item "Generator Strt" has to be “ON”.
Generator Start (when selected) is triggered by leaving the first
charging stage. The factory setting for the trigger type of the
first charger stage (named "STRT") is "<DC Voltage." This
value's factory setting ("Trigger Setting") is 22.00 Vdc for the
RE24-4500, or 44 Vdc for the RE48-4500. This means that the
generator start relay fires when the battery voltage is less than
this threshold.
There also is a setting for "Generator Wait" which is the time
the inverter waits for the AC input (generator or Grid) to
become valid. This means the following conditions need to be
met:
•
good L1-to-N and L2-to-N grid voltages
•
good frequency
•
phase-locked.
The factory setting for "Generator Wait" is 95 Seconds.

System Operation Description
If the AC input is still bad after 95 Seconds, the generator relay
is opened and the RE-4500 waits for the "Gen Retry Dly"
period of 5 minutes before trying again. This sequence will
cycle continuously as long as the battery voltage is low and the
grid is bad.
If the AC input is good, then the inverter/charger will progress
through its charging stages using the generator until it reaches
the last one. The factory (or default) setting for charging stages
is 7 so the last one is the 7th. The 7th stage is named "END,"
and is a float setting. When the software reaches this last stage
called "END", the relay is opened thereby stopping the
generator. The generator won't restart until the battery voltage
falls to less than the battery minimum threshold again.
Grid Interactive
This mode provides power from the RE-4500 in parallel with a
second source of power such as the utility or a generator. When
paralleling the utility, the purpose is to sell any excess power
or to limit the peak current consumption. When paralleling a
generator, the purpose is to “stiffen” the AC bus, to provide
peak power that the generator alone is not capable of
providing.
Note:
Strict limits from Sandia National Laboratories are used during Grid
Interactive Mode - Surplus Power. User settings are ignored.
Surplus Power
In this mode the RE-4500 regulates the batteries to their Float
level. Surplus power is directed to the Grid. The implication is
that another source of power such as a Photovoltaic array is
delivering more current into the battery than is required to
maintain a charge. Note: Replaces Vanner’s “Solar Mode.”

Generator Support
This is an extension of Vanner’s Automatic Power
Management feature. The default setting is 5 ARMS. In this
mode the RE-4500 “backs up” the power source to provide
peak power capability or “load leveling.” This may be to limit
the peak utility power draw or to provide a surge capability
that is greater than the other source can provide on its own. In
this mode the inverter monitors the input RMS current, and
when it exceeds the set value, first, stops consuming power
(charging) and second, begins providing power from the
battery into the load.
Generator Start and GridInteractive
Many generators have poor voltage and frequency regulation.
The RE-4500 can be setup to operate with the wider regulation
that is sometimes required, but only when the inverter is not
connected to the grid. In cases where it is desirable to be
connected to the grid and also have generator backup, the
tighter voltage and frequency settings must be used. These
settings are password protected and can only be set by an
authorized installer.
Set Current
The system controller tells the RE-4500 to supply a constant
RMS current to the Grid. This is done until the battery reaches
its “Low Battery Warning” level, at which point Charging
begins. Charging will continue unless the system controller
changes the setting. The required trip points are used.

Preventive Maintenance and
Trouble Shooting Procedures
There are no user serviceable components inside the inverter. If
the inverter requires service, refer to the Vanner Incorporated
or other qualified service personnel.
Preventive Maintenance
For continued reliability and safety, a monthly maintenance
program should be implemented to include the following:
1. Check to insure that all wiring connections are tight, secure
and corrosion free.
2. Check fan exhaust and intake vents for obstructions.
3. Examine connectors, indicators and switches for cracks
and breaks.
4. Examine any surfaces that are discolored or deformed due
to excessive heat.

Problem Symptoms and
Troubleshooting Checks
If you have this problem:
Inverter Indicator Light does not turn ON.
Inverter Indicator Light is ON but the AC load
will not operate.
Low Battery Indicator Light is ON when AC
load is applied.
Over Temperature Indicator Light is RED.
Inverter Light Turns RED when AC load is
applied.
DC fuse blows when connecting DC input
cables.
Excessive audible buzzing during inverter
operation but inverter operates loads.
AC loads do not seem to be fully energized
when operating from inverter power.
Unit does not operate and a “burnt wire” smell
emits from inverter/charger.
Do this:
Verify DC voltage at the inverter.
Check and reset GFCI receptacle or circuit
breakers. Verify AC wiring. Try a different load
such as a trouble light.
Check battery connections and condition.
Recharge battery if voltage is less than 22.0
VDC. Low battery warning is 22 VDC and
Inverter Shutdown is 21 VDC (44VDC and
42VDC for the RE48-4500).
Check to see if Charger is enabled in RE-ICC
Settings Menu. Check alarm status on Charger.
Verify fan operation. Remove obstructions from
air intake vents and exhaust fan.
Verify AC load is within the inverter’s rated
capacity. Remove excessive loads.
Check for reverse polarity (Positive and
negative DC cables reversed.)
Check mounting bracket bolt tightness.
Check AC output voltage at AC Output
Terminals. Check for overheated DC or AC
wiring. Verify AC load specifications are not
exceeded.
Disconnect AC loads and DC Source
immediately. Unit may require service, contact
Vanner service department.

Important Safety Instructions
General Precautions
Do not expose the inverter/charger to direct water spray, rain, or
snow.
To reduce the risk of a fire hazard, do not cover or obstruct the
ventilation openings.
Do not install the inverter in a zero clearance compartment. This
may result in overheating and/or diminished performance.
To avoid the risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, do
not use attachments not recommended or sold by Vanner
Incorporated.
Vanner recommends that all AC and DC electrical wiring be
performed by a licensed electrician or a qualified technician to
ensure compliance with all applicable national and local wiring
regulations.
To avoid a risk of fire and/or electrical shock, always verify wiring
connections are in good electrical condition. All external
conductors must use proper wire size to avoid dangerous
overheating and/or diminished performance.
If the inverter has been dropped or damaged in any way, do not
operate the inverter until it has been verified to be safe by a
qualified technician.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always disconnect the AC
and DC connections using the code required AC and DC
disconnects. The On/Off switch only turns off the Inverter
electronics. Dangerous AC and DC Voltages Are Still Present!
The inverter must be properly grounded in accordance with local
and national codes and ordinances before operation. For most
installations, the negative (ground) conductor should be bonded
to the grounding system at one and only one point in the system.
For optimum inverter/charger performance, battery temperature
should be above 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Do not disassemble the inverter/charger. See the service section
of this manual for instructions on obtaining service. Attempting
to service the inverter yourself may result in a risk of electrical
shock, fire and/or loss of warranty.

RE Installation Manual
Always use service disconnects to break the circuit before
attempting any kind of servicing of the RE-4500. DO NOT attempt
to service the unit while still actively connected to a power
source of any kind.
Explosive Gas Precautions
This equipment contains components, which tend to produce arcs
or sparks. To prevent fire or explosion, do not install in
compartments containing batteries or flammable materials, or in
locations that require ignition protected equipment. This includes
any space containing gasoline-powered machinery, fuel tanks, or
joints, fittings, or other connections between components of the
fuel system.
To reduce the risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions,
the battery manufacturer instructions, and the instructions of the
manufacturer of the equipment in which the battery is installed.
Working near a lead-acid battery is dangerous. Batteries generate
explosive gases during normal battery operation.
Battery Precautions
Always have someone within range of your voice to come to your
aid when you work near a lead-acid battery.
Have close access to plenty of fresh water and soap in case
battery acid contacts skin, clothing, or eyes.
Always wear complete eye protection and clothing protection.
Avoid touching eyes while working near batteries.
If battery acid contacts skin or clothing, wash immediately with
soap and water. If acid enters eye, immediately flood eye with
running cold water for at least 20 minutes. Get medical attention
immediately.
NEVER smoke or allow a spark or flame near a battery. Gases
produced by batteries are explosive.
Be careful when working with metal tools around batteries.
Potentials exist for sparks or short-circuit of the battery or other
electrical part which could cause an explosion.

Inverter Installation
Considerations
•
Mounting: Locate a secure, dry, flat vertical surface large
enough to mount the inverter (and Accessory modules if
used – RE-ACM and RE-DCM). The location should be as
close to the battery as possible, usually within six feet, but
not in the same compartment and should provide adequate
ventilation while the inverter is operating. The location
must be clean, dry and free of dripping water, or other
moisture contamination.
•
Cooling Fan Clearance: The mounting location must allow
unobstructed airflow for cooling. Allow a minimum
clearance of 12 inches (30.48 cm) on bottom and sides of
the inverter. The Cooling Fan is a thermostatically
controlled exhaust fan. Air is drawn into the inverter from
the intake vents and exhausted by the fan. Obstruction of
the fan exhaust or the intake vents will diminish the
inverter output capacity due to overheating.

DC Wiring Considerations
•
A DC fuse is REQUIRED to properly protect the inverter
in case the battery cables are connected backward (reverse
polarity). Use a Vanner Part Number 04095 Very Fast
Acting 400 amp fuse.
•
The wiring of your inverter installation should conform to
the National Electric Code (NEC) and any other state or
local codes in effect at the time of installation. These codes
have been written for your protection and their
requirements should be followed.
•
It is recommended by Vanner that you use a DC Control
Module which will take care of the majority of NEC code
requirements for the DC disconnects and terminations. In
the event that the RE-DCM is not used please refer to
Figure 3-5.
•
Use 75° C copper wire with a class 1 rating for all controlcircuit wiring.

required, cut a slot to connect the two holes to prevent
heating of the ferrous metal.
4. If passing through any sort of holes, make certain that
strain reliefs are used to avoid cutting or abrasion of
insulation over time.
5. Proper DC cable size is critical for the performance and
safe operation of the inverter system. It is required by
Vanner that the installer use 4/0 AWG wire to minimize
losses to less than ½ volt over the length of the cable. This
wire needs to be rated for 90ºC.
6. DC cables should be as short as possible to minimize
losses.
7. The DC power connections to the inverter require that
5/16” Dia. ring terminals be used for connection to the
inverter unless the optional mechanical compression blocks
(Vanner P/N D08421) are used. A list of suitable terminals
as well as the tools required to crimp them are shown in

1. Select a location for the inverter. An ideal location is close
to the battery; protected from weather and moisture; and
well ventilated.
Warning
It is important to disconnect ALL DC sources to avoid electric
shock!
DC Voltage is extremely dangerous and contact with DC Currents
can lead to injury, damage to property, and death!
Use the DC disconnect to insure that ALL potentials are disabled.
2. Select an accessible location for the DC Fuse. The location
should be within 18” of the battery and accessible for
visual inspection and replacement. If possible locate so the
last DC connection can safely be made at the fuse.
3. Remove the cover plate on the DC cable raceway to expose
the positive and negative DC connections.
4. Prepare DC cable ends. Use ring terminals or, if using the
optional D08241 Compression Lugs, leave the cable ends
bare.
5. Verify that the DC cables are still disconnected from the
DC Source.

6. Insert the DC cables through the appropriate knockout and
into the DC wiring raceway.
7. Torque the DC cable mounting bolts to 105 inch pounds.
Re-torque after 30 days.
8. Inspect the DC cable compartment to be sure no copper
wire fragments are present after tightening cables.
9. Route the negative DC cable to the DC source disconnect
(or Vanner DCM). Verify cable polarity before proceeding.
Warning
If the cables are reversed, the fuse will be blown and inverter can
be damaged.
10. Route the positive DC input cable to the DC disconnect.
Protect cables with loom and use grommets or other
appropriate means where cables may contact hard, sharp
edges. If possible, make the last DC connection at the
disconnect to avoid causing a spark at the battery.
11. If any of the control NC or NO outputs need to be wired,
for control of external devices, do so at this time.
12. Route the control NC or NO wiring with as much physical
separation as possible from low voltage wiring such as
audio and video signal wires, the Input DC wiring, and AC
wiring. This is accommodated in the system through the
physical separation of the High Current DC knockouts and
the Control knockouts for the DC Raceway.
13. Verify that the control NC or NO wiring is still
disconnected from the device to which they are to be
attached.
14. Insert control NC or NO wiring through the knockout and
into the DC wiring raceway.
15. Connect the NO, NC, Common, and +24VDC and GND to
the appropriate terminals in the terminal strip and torque
each of the AC terminal screws to 4 inch pounds. Retorque after 30 days.
16. Verify DC wiring installation. Verify that all connections
are tight. Secure all wiring and replace the DC Raceway
cover.

Installation Procedure
Warning
Before proceeding with the AC wiring, verify that the inverter is
OFF and that the inverter is NOT connected to the battery. Serious
or fatal electrical shock may occur.
Please refer to Figure 3-9 if the RE-ACM is not used in this
installation. Please refer to Figure 3-6 for the location of the
AC Raceway. Please refer to Figure 3-10 for location of the
AC Raceway and terminations.
It is recommended by Vanner that you use an AC Control
Module which will take care of the majority of NEC code
requirements for the AC disconnects and terminations.
Note:
It is required that all AC wiring be done with 10 AWG 90ºC wire.
Make certain that the wiring conforms to National and Local
Electric Codes.

and charging steps for your type of battery.
1. Go through the charger menu as shown in Figure 4-6 and
set "Charging Steps" to 3. Then hit the MENU key to go
into the charging steps menu.
2. Perform the first set of charging steps:
a. Set "Charge Step #" to 1. (The first charging step).
Press the Top Right Key.
b. For the time being, leave "Charge Stage ," the charge
step name, whatever it is, "STRT?" Again, Press the
Top Right Key.
c. Choose the "Charge Type" to be "DC CURRENT."
Press the Top Right Key.
d. Make the "Charge Setting" "0.0 Adc." Press the Top
Right Key.

g. And last, set "Charge Timeout" to "0.00 Hours." Press
the Top Right Key to take you back to “Charge Step
#”.
This charge step is a placeholder where nothing really
happens to the batteries until their voltage falls and they
truly do need a charge. At that point, the inverter charges
the batteries at 0 Adc until the battery voltage falls below
22.0 Vdc, and then goes on to the next charging step.
3. Perform the second set of charging steps:
a. Set "Charge Step #" to 2. (The second charging step)
Press the Top Right Key.
b. Leave "Charge Stage " whatever it is, "BLKC?" Press
the Top Right Key.
c. Choose the "Charge Type" to be "DC CURRENT."
Press the Top Right Key.
d. Make the "Charge Setting" "100.0 Adc." (+100.0) (50
ADC for the RE48-4500) Press the Top Right Key.
e. Choose the "End Chrg Type" to be ">=DC
VOLTAGE." Press the Top Right Key.
f.

Vdc for the RE48-4500) or whatever voltage is correct
for your battery bank. Press the Top Right Key
g. And last, set "Charge Timeout" to "24.00 Hours".
Press the Top Right Key to take you back to “Charge
Step #”.
During this charging step the inverter will put 100 Adc (50
ADC for the RE48-4500) into the batteries until their
voltage has risen to 27.20 Vdc (54.4 Vdc for the RE484500) (or until 24 hours have gone by) and then the
inverter will go on to the next charging step.
4. Perform the third set of charging steps:
a. Set "Charge Step #" to 3. (The third and last charging
step) Press the Top Right Key.
b. Leave "Charge Stage " whatever it is, "BLKV?" Press
the Top Right Key.
c. Choose the "Charge Type" to be "DC VOLTAGE."
Press the Top Right Key.
d. Make the "Charge Setting" "27.20 Vdc," (54.4 Vdc for

inverter will then go back to the FIRST step, and start
over.
Example 2 – 7 Step Charging Cycle
This example is for the factory setting 7 step charging steps.
This 7 step charging cycle is a 7-stage bulk charge for flooded
lead acid batteries (similar to the Vanner Incorporated TruSine
TSC24-4500).
To change or review the setpoints, use the ICC remote to go up
to the charger menu and look at "Charging Stges." The
Charging Stages factory setting is 7 meaning there are 7 stages

Trouble Shooting Procedures
There are no user serviceable components inside the inverter. If
the inverter requires service, refer to the Vanner Incorporated
or other qualified service personnel.
Preventive Maintenance
For continued reliability and safety, a monthly maintenance
program should be implemented to include the following:
1. Check to insure that all wiring connections are tight, secure
and corrosion free.
2. Check fan exhaust and intake vents for obstructions.
3. Examine connectors, indicators and switches for cracks
and breaks.
4. Examine any surfaces that are discolored or deformed due
to excessive heat.

VDC (44 VDC for the RE48-4500). Low battery
warning is 22 VDC and Inverter Shutdown is 21
VDC (44 VDC and 42 VDC for the RE48-4500
respectively).
Low Battery Indicator Light is ON when AC load
is applied.
Over Temperature Indicator Light is RED.
Inverter Light Turns RED when AC load is
applied.
DC fuse blows when connecting DC input
cables.
AC loads do not seem to be fully energized
when operating from inverter power.
Unit does not operate and a “burnt wire” smell
emits from inverter/charger.
Check to see if Charger is enabled in RE-ICC
Settings Menu. Check alarm status on Charger.
Verify fan operation. Remove obstructions from
air intake vents and exhaust fan.
Verify AC load is within the inverter’s rated
capacity. Remove excessive loads.
Check for reverse polarity (Positive and negative
DC cables reversed.)
Check AC output voltage at AC Output
Terminals. Check for overheated DC or AC
wiring. Verify AC load specifications are not
exceeded.
Disconnect AC loads and DC Source
immediately. Unit may require service, contact
