Frequently Asked Questions

MY SPM-612 ISN’T POWERING UP, WHAT DO I DO?

The SPM-612 requires an external power source, such as a battery, AC power supply, solar, wind, or fuel cell power. If an external power source is present ensure that the source is working properly, so a battery isn’t completely drained, the AC power supply is plugged in and functional, there is sun on the solar panel (no power available at night), the wind turbine is spinning, or the fuel cell is providing power.

If you have verified that a power source is functional and connected to the SPM, and the power manager does not turn on, you may need to return the power manager to Protonex for repair.

Please see the FAQs on the main Support page for more information on warrantee and how to get a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA).e the FAQs on the Support page for more information on how to get an RMA.

MY SPM-612 KEEPS REPORTING AN OVER (OR UNDER) VOLTAGE ERROR. WHAT’S WRONG?

This error indicates that a port on the SPM has detected a voltage that is outside the normal operating range of the connected device, and has disconnected the port to protect that device and/or the power manager. While uncommon, this is the most frequent error with the SPM-612. First try unplugging all devices and power sources from the device. Try plugging the power sources and devices back in.

If the problem persists you may need to return the device to Protonex for repair. Please see the FAQs on the main Support page for more information on warrantee and how to get a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA).
