HANDLE WITH CARE!
There are dangerous energy sources inside the cable compartment.
It is imperative that the closing cover for the connection compartment is installed and screwed tight before energizing the installation!
The powering of the next3 starts with the battery. The unit cannot be powered by AC or solar without battery. Verify that the PV DC switch is open and there is no voltage presence on the AC wires.
When supplying the 48Vdc voltage on the battery connection, the next3 device beeps and all lights turn on for a few seconds. After that, your next3 installation is in the following state:
- The next3 is OFF (no AC voltage on the AC load connector)
- The red LED (with“!” sign) is permanently light on, because the next3 is OFF (LED2)
- The battery is connected (battery symbol is light on) (LED6)
- The voltage production on Ac Load is disabled (house symbol is light off) (LED5)
- The solar chargers are disabled (PV array symbol is light off) (LED7)
- The connection to Ac Source is disabled (grid/genset symbol is light off) (LED3)
- The Ac Flex is disabled (both grid/genset and house symbols are light off) (LED4)
- The nx-interface lights-up and start his boot process.
1. Initial configuration
A next3 installation requires an initial configuration with the wizard. This must be done with the nx-interface. Be sure to have it on your installation for the first commissioning.
The next3 will not start its operation without this first configuration.

3. Front panel led indicator
The front panel has the necessary information to understand the state of the next3 with the LED lights.
The table hereunder describes the information or type of error according to the number of times an indicator flashes.
State of charge indicator: 4 bars in the battery symbol:
- 50 to 75 %
- 0 to 25 %
In charge mode, the upper LED line inside the battery blinks indicating the charge phase:
- 1 time: bulk
- 2 times: absorption
- 3 times: equalization
- permanently on: floating
For lithium batteries with BMS, the upper line never blinks as there are no charging phase controlled
by the next3. The charge is controlled by the BMS.
- If there is absolutely no light on any of the LEDs, the next is completely without power (battery
disconnected) or there is a problem with the display of LEDs.
- When powering up the next3 with the battery, all LEDs blink once during the start check.
- All LEDs can blink at the same time in an identification procedure (with nx-interface). It is
possible to identify the devices in multi-unit system that way.
4. Beep indicator (buzzer)
The sound produced by the next3 buzzer uses the same beep sequence as the central “!” red light flashing sequence.
This buzzer can be deactivated/activated with the nx-interface.
This buzzer can also be deactivated/activated with the next button of the front panel. The button must be pushed for 5 seconds < push < 7 seconds (release after the 3rd beep to toggle the function). In any case, the sounds when pressing the button to identify the functions described on chapter 5.2 will remain active.
