Main Pack voltage Alarm

Hello,

I'm using the ETV with a 2*4S pack with a total of 8000mAh (2*4000)

I've set the main pack voltage configuration as such:
Number of colors: 4
100% Best value: 16.8
Threshold 1: 16.17
Threshold 2 :15.55
Threshold 3: 14.92
0% Worst value: 14.30

I've entered a low Alarm Enabled trigger value at 14.9

After applying the values and retarting the ETV, My main ack gauge is red flashing and I get a Main pack alarm message while my voltage is at 16.43

Any idea why?

Cheers and Merry Christmas.

Try reversing all your parameters for your voltages. I have the same issue with my setup and asked on here but never got a clear reason why it's reversed. I'm like you, I thought the best value would be a full charged battery but it's not apparently.something in the software code is reversed or something. Or just the wording in the gui.

Apparently for the main pack, you have to set the volt per cell and not total voltage.

For the VTx however you have to set the total pack voltage
