Network Installation
Network Installation
This section describes requirements for installing the Xantrex XW SCP as
part of a Xantrex Xanbus network-managed power system. For the
system to function properly, requirements for network layout and
termination must be followed.
Network Components
A Xantrex Xanbus network consists of the following components:
•
Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices—these include the Xantrex XW
SCP, the Xantrex XW Series Inverter/Charger, Xantrex XW Automatic
Generator Start (Xantrex XW AGS), and Xantrex XW Charge
Controller. The network can consist of up to eight Xantrex Xanbusenabled devices. A typical Xantrex XW Power System can include
three inverter/chargers, two charge controllers, one Xantrex XW AGS
and one Xantrex XW SCP.
•
Xantrex Xanbus power supply—the network requires a power supply
capable of providing 15 Vdc/200 mA to each device. The Xantrex
XW Series Inverter/Charger provides network power, but if no
inverter/charger is installed, an external power supply is required.
Contact Schneider Electric for more information.
•
Xantrex Xanbus cables—each Xantrex Xanbus-enabled device is
connected by a standard straight-through Ethernet cable—CAT 5e.
See Figure 2-1 on page 2–3. A 2.1 meter network cable is included
with the Xantrex XW SCP. If more cables or a different length are
required, these standard cables can be purchased from Schneider
Electric or any computer supply store.
CAUTION: Equipment damage
Do not use crossover cable for the Xantrex Xanbus network cable.
On crossover cable, the order of color-coded wires at each end of the
cable is different.
Figure 2-1 Xantrex Xanbus Cable
975-0298-01-01
2–3
Installation
•
Network terminators (Figure 2-2)—the Xantrex Xanbus network must
be properly terminated at each end with network terminators. If the
network is not properly terminated, signal quality is degraded and
performance on the network is reduced. Permanent configuration
without terminators is not supported by Schneider Electric.
One terminator is included with the Xantrex XW SCP. Depending on
your network layout, this terminator may need to be inserted into
another device elsewhere in the network.
Figure 2-2 Xantrex Xanbus Network Terminators
Network Layout
Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices are linked with separate lengths of
Xantrex Xanbus cable, as shown in Figure 2-3.
To ensure communication signal quality, each end of the network must
be terminated. The Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices at each end of the
network must have a male terminator inserted into their open
network ports.
If the Xantrex XW SCP is the last device on the network, the open port on
the Xantrex XW SCP must be terminated.

Guidelines for Routing the Xantrex Xanbus Cables
WARNING: Shock hazard
:
Do not route the Xantrex Xanbus cables in the same conduit or panel as
the AC and DC power cabling.
To ensure maximum performance of your network, follow these
guidelines when routing the Xantrex Xanbus cables. Route the cables
before installing the Xantrex XW SCP.
•
Route the cables away from sharp edges that might damage the
insulation. Avoid sharp bends in the cable—no less than a 100 mm
radius.
•
Allow at least 57 mm of space behind the wall to accommodate the
depth of the unit and allow room for the cables to bend.
•
Allow for some slack in the cable tension.
•
Keep the alignment of wire pairs inside the sheath as straight
as possible.
•
Allow separation between data and power cables (data cables
should only cross a power cable at right angles).
•
Do not staple the cable with metal cable staples. Use appropriate
hardware fasteners to avoid damage to the cable.
The total length of the network, including all connected Xantrex Xanbusenabled devices and the Xantrex XW SCP, cannot exceed 40 m. Xantrex
Xanbus cables are available in lengths from 0.9 m to 22.9 m.

Installation
Connecting Xantrex Xanbus Cables
Follow these guidelines for connecting Xantrex Xanbus cables to the
Xantrex XW SCP. The cables are connected to the Xantrex XW SCP at
the same time the Xantrex XW SCP is mounted. Read “Mounting the
Xantrex XW SCP” on page 2–7 before performing the following
procedures.
CAUTION: Equipment damage
:
Connect the Xantrex XW SCP only to other Xantrex Xanbus-enabled
devices.
Although the cabling and connectors used in this network system are the
same as Ethernet connectors, this network is not an Ethernet system.
Equipment damage may result from connecting a Xantrex Xanbus
system directly to a personal computer.
CAUTION: Unpredictable device behavior
Do not connect one end of the network to the other to make a ring
or loop.
To connect Xantrex Xanbus cables to the Xantrex XW SCP:
1. Connect the Xantrex Xanbus cable (or two Xantrex Xanbus cables,
if the Xantrex XW SCP is located between two Xantrex Xanbusenabled devices) to a Xantrex Xanbus network input in the Xantrex
XW SCP.
2. Route and connect the cable(s) to the nearest Xantrex Xanbusenabled device(s).
3. For additional devices, continue connecting cable as
described above.
4. Ensure the factory-supplied male network terminators are inserted
into the empty inputs in the Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices at the
beginning and end of the network. When the network is completely
connected, there should be no empty network inputs in any Xantrex
Xanbus-enabled device.

CAUTION: Equipment damage
Provide adequate space within the wall for the Xantrex Xanbus cables to
bend. Do not bend the cable to one side after it leaves the Xantrex
Xanbus port. The mounting bracket itself does not provide enough space
for the cables to bend. Attempting to route the cables through the side of
the mounting bracket without providing space for the cables within the
wall may damage to the Xantrex XW SCP Xantrex Xanbus ports and
cause network communication problems.
To flush mount the Xantrex XW SCP with mounting plate:
1. Using a jigsaw and the supplied template sticker as a guide, cut out
the hole for the mounting plate. The mounting plate fastens to walls
up to 19 mm thick.
2. Route the Xantrex Xanbus cable(s) inside the wall and through
the opening.

Using the System Settings Menu
Using Cascading Parameters
Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices are configured one at a time.
However, because devices often have common settings, cascading
parameters can simplify and speed up system configuration. When a
parameter is “cascaded,” a newly configured device setting is applied to
all devices of the same device type on a common AC or DC connection.
For example, if cascading parameters are enabled and a Battery Size (Ah)
parameter is changed on the inverter/charger setup menu, the same
battery size setting is applied to other inverter/chargers that share the
same DC connection in the system.
To enable or disable cascading parameters:
1. On the System Settings menu, with Cascading highlighted,
press Enter.
2. Use the up arrow or down arrow button to change the
current setting—“Enabled” or “Disabled.”
3. Press Enter to select the new setting.
When configuring the network-managed power system with cascading
parameters enabled, you should verify that the configurations have been
cascaded correctly to other devices. Communication errors may cause
parameters to revert to their original values or generate a warning
message on the Xantrex XW SCP screen.

Operation
Chapter 4 contains information and procedures
for operating the Xantrex XW System Control
Panel, including:
• System modes
• Faults and warnings
Operation
System Modes
The system modes described in this section affect the performance and
behavior of the Xantrex XW SCP and all other Xantrex Xanbus-enabled
devices. You will have to change the system mode when putting your
system in storage or when installing a new Xantrex Xanbus-enabled
device.
Changing System Modes
System modes are changed using the System Settings menu
(see “Using the System Settings Menu” on page 3–15). The system
modes are:
•
Operating
•
Standby.
Operating Mode
The default state of the Xantrex XW SCP is Operating mode. In Operating
mode, the Xantrex XW SCP communicates with other Xantrex Xanbusenabled devices and displays all the network information it is configured
to display.
Standby Mode
While in Standby mode, the Xantrex XW SCP remains powered,
“listening” and reporting its status to the network. However, the output
power of all Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices is disabled and all
inverting, charging, and generator starting activity stops. Selecting
Standby mode stops the generator (if it is running and a Xantrex XW
Automatic Generator Start is part of the system) and puts the Xantrex XW
SCP (and all Xantrex Xanbus-enabled devices) into Standby mode.
When to use
Use Standby mode when you are adding or removing devices from the
network. Authorized service personnel must also put the network in
Standby mode before performing software upgrades and diagnostics.
To put the power system into Standby mode:
1. On the System Settings menu, highlight “System Mode,” and press
Enter.
2. Select “Standby” and press Enter.

975-0298-01-01
Warnings and Faults
To return to Operating mode:
1. On the System Settings menu, highlight “System Mode,” and
press Enter.
2. Select “Operating” and press Enter.
Using the Standby Button
Pressing the Standby Button produces the same result as disabling
“Invert” and “AC Charge” from the System Settings menu on the Xantrex
XW SCP. Pressing the Standby button does not affect Charge Controller
operation. After disabling inverting and charging with the Standby
button, the system continues to pass AC input through to the loads.
Pressing the Exit and Standby buttons at the same time puts the entire
Xantrex XW power system (including Charge Controllers) into standby
mode. In standby mode, the Xantrex XW inverter/chargers stop passing
AC input through to the loads, and “Stb” is displayed on Inverter
Information Panel.
After the keypress command to enter standby mode, the Xantrex XW
AGS (if installed) shuts down the generator (if it is running) after a
cool-down cycle.
Warnings and Faults
This section describes how fault and warning messages behave,
and what you should do when they appear. For a complete list of fault
and warning messages specific to the Xantrex XW SCP, along with
recommended actions to correct the fault or warning condition, refer to
Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting”.
Important: The Xantrex XW SCP displays fault and warning messages

Operation
Warning Messages
Warning messages appear when the Xantrex XW SCP detects a
condition that may eventually affect its continued operation. When a
warning occurs, the Xantrex XW SCP continues operating. However, you
should consult the Troubleshooting chapter to find out what actions you
can take to prevent the warning from escalating into a fault.

Figure 4-1 Xantrex XW SCP Warning Message
Types
There are two types of warning messages: manual and automatic.
Each differs in its behavior and appearance. For a list of Xantrex XW SCP
warnings and their associated types, refer to Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting”.
If you see a warning message on the Xantrex XW SCP, you will have to
acknowledge it and (if necessary) clear it. Acknowledging the warning
allows you to continue operating the Xantrex XW SCP. Clearing the
warning message stops the warning condition from escalating into
a fault.
Acknowledging Warning Messages
Automatic
warnings
Acknowledging an automatic warning message removes the message
from the Xantrex XW SCP screen.
To acknowledge an automatic warning message, press Enter. After you
acknowledge the warning, the Xantrex XW SCP displays the menu for the
device that caused the warning.
The Xantrex XW SCP removes an unacknowledged automatic warning
message from the screen after three minutes. However, if the condition
that caused the warning still exists, the warning message will reappear.
You can view a list of the last 20 warning messages from the Xantrex XW
SCP on the Warning log. See “Viewing the Xantrex XW SCP Warning
Log” on page 4–6.

Manual
warnings
A manual warning message requires you to make a choice (usually by
pressing Enter for “yes” or Exit for “no”) before you can proceed
monitoring or configuring the Xantrex XW SCP. It will not disappear after
three minutes. After you respond to the warning message the Xantrex XW
SCP clears the warning message and returns to the screen it was
displaying before the warning message appeared.

Xantrex XW SCP disappears or when the criteria for clearing the warning
are met.
You can clear a manual warning message by pressing Enter or Exit in
response to the message.

Warranty and Return Information
Warranty
What does this warranty cover and how long does it last? This Limited Warranty is provided by
Xantrex Technology Inc. ("Xantrex") and covers defects in workmanship and materials in your Xantrex
XW System Control Panel. This warranty period lasts for 5 years from the date of purchase at the point of
sale to you, the original end user customer, unless otherwise agreed in writing (the “Warranty Period”).
You will be required to demonstrate proof of purchase to make warranty claims.
This Limited Warranty is transferable to subsequent owners but only for the unexpired portion of the
Warranty Period. Subsequent owners also require original proof of purchase as described in "What
proof of purchase is required?"
What will Xantrex do? During the Warranty Period Xantrex will, at its option, repair the product (if
economically feasible) or replace the defective product free of charge, provided that you notify Xantrex
of the product defect within the Warranty Period, and provided that Xantrex through inspection
establishes the existence of such a defect and that it is covered by this Limited Warranty.
Xantrex will, at its option, use new and/or reconditioned parts in performing warranty repair and building
replacement products. Xantrex reserves the right to use parts or products of original or improved design
in the repair or replacement. If Xantrex repairs or replaces a product, its warranty continues for the
remaining portion of the original Warranty Period or 90 days from the date of the return shipment to the
customer, whichever is greater. All replaced products and all parts removed from repaired products
become the property of Xantrex.
Xantrex covers both parts and labor necessary to repair the product, and return shipment to the
customer via a Xantrex-selected non-expedited surface freight within the contiguous United States and
Canada. Alaska, Hawaii and outside of the United States and Canada are excluded. Contact Xantrex
Customer Service for details on freight policy for return shipments from excluded areas.
