Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Where did you see "MK2"? I've not seen it. I would say it's the same thing. On the sticker on the side with the serial number. Model Name: RCT-AXMK2-5K-48V. It could just be that RCT slightly altered their part number on their batch? It's not clear to me. Does your model have the round bottom to th...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Hi All, Please help me out here with an answer. I think I already know the answer but I'm hoping I'm wrong :shock: Is it possible to parallel an Axpert 5K (145V SCC) with an Axpert MK2 5K (450V SCC)? I found this on the forum: "** Firmware version 71.71 is for the PIP-5048MG / Axpert MKS II (450 V S...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Hi Guys, So it's been about two months to the day that my replacement axpert 5kva was installed but now I'm very worried. The installer set the battery type to flooded instead of AGM and I'm sure my batteries are poked! Shame on me for not checking this after installation. 4 x 200ah deep cycle batte...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Would this not mean mixing sources in the morning? As my Axpert cannot do this... wolfandy, what do you mean yours can't mix sources? I had the exact same model (it recently went faulty after nearly 5 years) and it quite happily switched between sources. In the morning it would start charging the b...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Hi @Mantas. If you want to have any chance of paralleling the new machine with the old ones, you must not buy a 64 V machine. That means you must not buy a PIP-5048MS. You need an Axpert MKS 5K that does not have the 64 V option, or a rebadged equivalent such as the Mecer SOL-I-AX-5P (not the SOL-I...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

@Mantas I just realised you have another (and better) option, that doesn't require you to reflash the new clone. You can reflash the old inverter(s) with the same firmware that is in the clone, which I assume is LC1_72.70c . Hi Weber, Thank you so much for your warm welcome and your excellent respo...

Re: PIP-4048MS and PIP-5048MS inverters

Hi All, My one axpert 5kva/4000W inverter blew and was just replaced through my insurance but the contractor supplied a different branded one but it's still an axpert (Same stickers on the side). This new one however is a 5kva/5000w and the solar charger is rated higher at 80A vs 50A on the old one....
