The Conext™ Configuration tool is used by system installers to simplify the task of system configuration and reduce installation time. It’s a PC-based software tool that works on systems that include the Conext™ XW, Conext™ XW+, Conext™ SW and peripherals.
The Conext Configuration tool is not meant to replace the Conext™ System Control Panel (SCP), Conext™ ComBox or any other monitoring devices. Those monitoring devices may still be required to monitor the Conext System and components.
Software and drivers for the Conext Configuration Tool are under the downloads section (Firmware).
Conext Config USB Driver is firmware used for general installation setup.
Conext Config Tool Software_AI (Anti-Islanding) is used when 2 or more inverters are installed in parallel on a single phase connection (See Conext XW+ Multi-Unit Power System Design Guide under the downloads section (Technical Publications). It is also used if there is a specific requirement by a utility. NOTE: Adjustment of AC anti-islanding parameters should only be done after consultation with the power utility or authority having jurisdiction.
Note: The configuration tool should not be used with Conext ComBox in-network especially when performing Firmware Upgrades. Use either the Conext ComBox or the configuration tool to complete firmware upgrades – but not both.
