I believe he was referring to Marius' E-SOLARE 5KVA, as sold in Romania.

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

To check the USB-RS232-RJ45 setup before updating firmware, can I simply run watch power on the PC and see if it finds the inverter via serial link ? Yes, that's a good sanity check (don't forget to exit WatchPower before the re-flash, not just close the window). That won't guarantee that it will w...

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

Hello everyone and a happy new year! Welcome, Marius. I own a hybrid charger/inverter sold in Romania as E-SOLARE 5KVA / 48V It appears to be a PIP-4048 or similar, with a different reseller. If so, that's not what we call a hybrid; it's an off-grid inverter-charger. Did anyone faced this issue? I'...

Re: Question for battery experts: proper inverter?

I suspect that CPAP machines vary widely, but my wife's former machine took about an amp from 12 V when running (hard to measure as it fluctuates with breathing). So of the order of 10 Ah per night. Her latest machine seems more modern, smaller, and gives the impression of needing less power. Even w...

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

1. Currently my inverters are on 1.24 SCC firmware, so do I need to upgrade SCC firmware, and if Yes what will I benefit from it? We no longer recommend updating the SCC firmware. There is no benefit that we are aware of, and the patched firmware goes to some trouble to talk properly to the three k...

Now when it turns on, error 02 appears for a high temperature for a few seconds and switches off. I'm sorry to hear that. It's most unfortunate that while there is some protection against incorrect firmware updates, this is not one of them. Is it possible to reinstall the previous firmware without ...

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

I'm a bit too high in voltage (52) but it seems to be ok. 52 V is fine; 14S of nominally 3.75 V cells is fine. 52 V is equivalent to a lead acid string of 4 nominall 12 V modules at 13 V, nowhere near fully charged. A nominally 48 V battery that is at 48.0 V without load is probably nearly dead fla...

Re: PIP-5048GE, PIP-5048GK and PIP-5048MG inverters (with unsafe SCC)

I noticed yesterday, and again today, that my 5048MG was pushing the battery > 64V. PIPs are not great at battery voltage regulation; under- and overshoots are common. I suspect that they don't do much about the classic control problem of integral windup. Today it did it for about 1/2 hr, yesterday...
