PIP-4048MS inverter

yes you can power down the slave whenever and save your idle current at night and day and switch it back on whenever. I use a Digital Current switch on the inverter output to turn on the second PIP when my load exceeds 2750 watts it switches a timer relay and holds the slave on for approx. 30 minute...

PIP-4048MS inverter

I have seen my 4048 switch to bypass only on low battery voltage and only when using one unit, With both units on in parallel this does not work. I have my pair set up so one runs all the time and the output is run thru a digital current switch as the first units output gets up to about 70% the seco...

I have searched - but could not find any particular reference to this.

Has anyone ever run the PIP-4048 with Li-Ion cells (Tesla style) - in something such as a 14S configuration?.
Any thoughts?

Edmund
