MPPT60/80: When will my charge controller exit Absorption during Enhanced Grid Support mode?

Issue:
Does the MPPT charge controller still use the 2% of battery capacity threshold to exit Absorption while using Enhanced Grid Support?

Product Line:
MPPT60, MPPT80

Environment:
On grid installation using the XW or XW+ and MPPT60 or MPPT80 with Enhanced Grid Support Mode

Resolution:
When using Enhanced Grid Support, the MPPT60 and MPPT80 will only use the Absorb Time setting to determine when to exit Absorption.

Cause:
If the XW is pulling energy from the batteries (Grid Support), the charge controllers will use the Absorb Time setting to finish Absorption.  The 2% threshold is only available during a pure charging cycle.  Generally, in an off-grid scenario or if Enhanced Grid Support is not being used.
