Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Hi folks, not sure if this has been covered already... If you have multiple PIP 5048MSD with the parallel cards, is it possible to "shutdown" one (or 2) of the inverters when load is low to minimise idle power consumption? Does turning just the inverter off (little switch underneath the unit) save s...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Thanks Terry, will check that out length of contact of the pins too.

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Yeh, buyer beware. I noticed on fleabay quite a bit of cable was advertised as 4mm2 but then when you read the description it actually said 2.x mm2 or others provided no detail at all. The "cheapish" cable I bought is roughly 4mm2 - aluminium though. Hence my plan to run individual cables to each st...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Thanks, not sure how that fan circuit plays out - the 12v and gnd lines look constant. At least my external fans (connected to 12v/gnd) have been running at a seemingly fixed speed - happy to sacrifice the additional 4 watts of consumption without putting in temp control. 1.5Kw PV feed, 1.5Kw contin...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Thanks Master Weber, no doubt I have the fake connectors and fake cable (the 6mm and 4mm is supposedly UV/Solar cable, both are double insulated). The 6mm cable I have is about 7mm dia sheath and that is a very snug fit. Haven't had an issue with the connectors so far on the existing panels, but wil...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Ok, another dumb question and probably not the right forum but you guys seem to have knowledge way beyond anything... For my next lot of panels I want to use 4mm2 cable - I am running each string of 3 panels back to a breaker board where I will combine strings there - so max current for each string ...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Cool, thanks for the confirmation Dave. 3s it will be then. Not sure why I was getting a few volts drop close to the PIP - maybe a bit of cloud cover when I went to measure?
Thanks again.

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Hi folks, not sure if this is the correct forum so let me know if not. I have just ordered a PIP5048MSD and trying to decide what panel string configuration I should use. I will be purchasing a second PIP5048MSD with parallel kits if testing goes ok. (I have been running a shed/pool pump off an IPS4...
