CAUTION: Equipment Damage

These procedures should be done by a qualified installer who is trained on programming inverter power systems.
Failure to set accurate parameters for the system could potentially cause equipment damage. Damage caused by
inaccurate programming is not covered by the limited warranty for the system.

IMPORTANT

Check the firmware revision of all OutBack devices before use. The Radian inverter and MATE3 system display may not
communicate or operate correctly unless their firmware is above a specified revision number.

For models GS8048A and GS4048A, the firmware must be revision 001.005.xxx or higher.

The MATE3 must be revision 002.017.xxx or higher.
