How to disable the LT8490 MPPT function


The following description is in the “DC Supply Powered Charging” section on page 16 of the LT8490 data sheet.

"This disables unnecessary solar panel functions and allows the LT8490 to operate properly from a
DC voltage source.If the application is never powered by a solar panel, VINR can be grounded."

Can the MPPT function be disabled by connecting the VINR pin to GND?

I would appreciate your answer.

Best Regards.
