Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Why guess when you can google it? Wow. Well found. Are you sure there's a PBEQA command? The above manual lists 6 commands that begin with PBEQ, but none of them are PBEQA. Yes. There is a slight mismatch between the documentation you found and VM III firmware version 25.90. But it's still very val...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Anyone tried the new Axpert VMIII or Axpert King ? However I'm curious if the existing communication protocol still works with the newer models. Sorry for the late reply. I am able to read a firmware for the Axpert VM III, and can confirm that the usual commands all seem to be there. A few commands...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

bubla , thanks to Weber's excellent "Voltronic Zoo" post, it seems likely that your PIP-2424MSXE is the same as a PIP-3024MSXE, except that it's from before the switchover to PF1.0 for that series in about February 2018. Weber says that the PIP-3024MSXE is equivalent to the Axpert VM 3000-24 Plus, ...

But to do so we need someone to send us a recent firmware update file for that machine. However, it's possible that such firmware is already available. I have for example the firmware for Axpert VM II 1200/2400/3000/4000/5000 W models (first 3 are 24 V machines), firmware version 20.44. Both the VM...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

This exactly matches the issue I found, that AC charging on my classic 4048MS is happening at a very dirty 0.8 power factor. So I'm guessing the newer models are much nicer for charging off generators and they've pretty much solved that problem moving forward. The PF1.0 refers to the maximum invert...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

I note that the MS E series, being "economy" models, aren't parallelable. So they should not have the major charge bug, which is in a function associated with parallel operation. Weber goaded me into doing the hard work to test this theory by analysing a firmware I have; that firmware is for a mode...

Re: Charging using SETEC portable Chademo

My question was whether it still provides 12v power from the main pack while driving? There seems to be some conflation of the DC-DC and the charger. They are in the same box, but separate circuit boards at different levels and compartments. It's the DC-DC that charges the 12 V battery. That's DC f...

I am getting the error Pre-charge timeout, no voltage (Precharge timeout, no voltage [0x00, 0x0000]). That sounds like the pre-charge resistor might be open circuit.

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Perhaps the 119 V is real, and is different from the voltage of the battery terminals because your battery fuse (either a real 200 A fuse, or a roughly 200 A fusible link) is blown. Weber has pointed out to me that this is unlikely, since you have probably been using your inverter-charger with the ...

I hadn't paid much attention to Fault Mode firmware code, since fortunately I haven't seen faults very often. It seems that there is a 30 second timeout, so when in fault mode, the power supply will turn off if there is no charge source (AC input or PV). This is presumably to save the battery, thoug...
