Re: Replacement battery

And the two blocks of 4 50 Ah cells pointing upwards can be replaced by a 2x2 block of 60 Ah cells on their sides? It looks like there is plenty of room.

That requires quite a lot of work behind the scenes to make the actual encryption work. I have no idea how close we are to having support for that, sorry.

Edit: it seems that 99% of the work is already done for us; see the next several messages.

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

So no major dips in pv, and no freezes. I would say you had one dip at 14:30 on the first graph. Total charge current dipped to 10 A (utility charging), but SCC charge current dipped to zero. Edit: BTW: nice production till 9pm (PV voltage present till after 10pm)! (Denmark is approaching summer no...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Did a test over the weekend by connecting 2 panels in series and 6 strings. Neat! Started up with that on Saturday morning and even before 08:00 the PV Watts dipped 4 times. I then changed it back to 3 panels in series and 5 strings. Ok, that sounds pretty convincing that it's not OCV. In your grap...

A couple of nits. You keep talking about the DC-DC converter, but the actual repair is of the charger (which is an AC to DC converter).

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

my PIP 5048MK switches to mains operation from 50v. Although I can adjust 48V anyway, he will turn off the battery from 50V. In the PIP-5048MS models at least, the inverter switches from AC-passthrough mode to battery mode when either of: the battery voltage falls below the back-to-utility setting,...
