Why does GRIDlink remain in OPT OUT after power is cycled?
After power cycled, the “OPT OUT” status still holds and therefore we cannot rejoin or participate in subsequent Events.
OPT-OUT is attained by clicking the green Opt Out button in GRIDview. See the image below.
The bit status is retained in the non-volatile RAM of the GRIDlink which makes it hold the condition even after a power re-cycle. It can be only turned OFF by clicking the green Opt Out button again.

Once an Opt Out signal is received by a 2.0b server, the Event is ended and the participant will not be permitted to Opt back in.
The GRIDlink can be configured to automatically turned to OFF OPT OUT at Midnight so to allow participation in the next day’s Event if called. This can be configured in Overview > Device Configure √ Automatic Opt In at Midnight
