PowerWall / Gateway Trip Settings for Off Grid?

I was wondering if anyone had detailed information on what would cause a Powerwall to enter off-grid / backup mode. I recently experienced some lightning strikes that my IT equipment UPS went into backup and I received notifications on my NAS server, but my Powerwalls rode through it and it got me thinking how much protection does my Powerwall actually provide?

I suspect it obviously provides protection in terms of:
Long Term Voltage Sag/Swell
Long Term Over/Under Frequency

Back I don't think it operates fast enough to meet the ITIC or CBEMA curves since the last time I put it into backup, my Oven clock reset and had to reprogram it. Does any one know exactly what the trip settings are for the Powerwall? I can assume Tesla relaxed it enough to not cause it to trip too much in case of bad grid quality.


Example below are some typical Trip Settings for an IT quality UPS (many devices don't meet this).
