PIP-4048MS inverter

Hi Eventually gave up on trying to figure out how to calibrate the 24 volt 3kva voltage seems like the 24 volt model can not be calibrated at all. I kept a copy of the 24volt 3kva inverter with the 60 amp MPPT SCC Think 0243 is the latest firmware, but this version still do not stay in absorb long e...

PIP-4048MS inverter

Your best bet for fixing this would seem to be finding the appropriate voltage divider resistor (or chain of resistors), and tweaking the values until it reads more accurately. Of course, you can't do much about drift and so on, but it sounds like a decent improvement could be had that way, if you ...

I also Had the thought of doing this to fool the amp sense also with voltage.

PIP-4048MS inverter

Is it possible to perform a voltage calibration on the 24 volt model that only have a USB port using access port ? I can fine lots of info on the PIP4048 voltage calibration using access port but nothing for the usb 24 volt 3kva model. My 24 volt inventor seems to be .2 volts lower that the actual v...

I can Also confirm that the fans are controlled by load at about 200watt speeds up and at about 800 watt max speed I've turned my fans around so that it blows into the case and also used tape to seal the gaps around the plastic air guide so that no air leaks out and miss the heat sink maximizing air...

PIP-4048MS inverter

Just a update on the charging issue

I loaded the PIP-MSX 2-3K_MAIN_0243 firmware and everything back to normal again.
Looks like i had a firmware bug on the 0242 firmware.

I noticed that if starting voltage is above 25 then it goes straight into float. ... I tried fld and ac charge starting at less than 25 volt and the battery voltage climbs to 29.2 and stays there. No float. What are your float and bulk voltage settings? when in user battery mode Set at 29.2 and 27 ...

PIP-4048MS inverter

One of the reasons I got the 2.4 KW model is the low standby consumption. I'm still building my setup so only have 2 panels. Currently I have 2 255W 36v panels in series this will be expanded to 3X2 or 3x3 if the 24 volt model can handle it I think it should be fine. Getting 340 watt at about 13:00 ...
