I have a solar-powered communications tower site for my WISP running on the MPPT60 as listed in the title. That controller is way more charge controller than I needed for the site, and pricey too, but I bought that one because it has a built-in network-connected monitoring and management system.
Usually I just check the web interface to make sure everything is good. It can be a little flaky and today it stopped responding. I didn’t want to have to cut power to the device, maybe possible without taking down my tower equipment’s power for a few minutes, maybe not, and wanted to make sure it was still functioning correctly.
The solution for me, at least this time, was to connect to the device in MS View (it was still pinging), and right-click on the controller, then select ‘Properties’, then the ‘Control’ tab, and then select ‘Reset Communications Server’ and click ‘Force Coil On’.
A few minutes later I could access the web status page again. I hope this helps someone else because searching for this information turned up next to nothing.
