Re: LG Chem Resu 10 with PIP-4048MS

So as promised I am back with details on LG Ghem Resu 10 working togheter with the PIP 4048 MS. Great stuff djonexx! Thanks for letting us know. I look forward to hearing how you go with Dynamic (Charge) Current Control. Dynamic Load Control may also be of interest, to get that no-load battery cons...

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

My inverters read the AC voltages 3 volts higher than actual as its all of them (6) has anybody checked to see if they have the same and can this be changed to be accurate? If they were all similar we could add a patch. But alas, I have one PIP reading 245 V and the other 247 V while the Fluke 87 I...

To answer that, I need to know: Are you using 16S or 15S LFP? What make and model are your panels? I already know your approximate location and therefore your temperature regime. Weber, my batteries are 15S. The panels are REC 250 watt. I would have to get out of bed to find the model number...... ...

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

For 5048MS PF1 not 64v model do you have any patch? Is there any way to pass beyond the 58.4 v bulk/absorb voltage? I see in the manual the cut-off voltage of 60v. Is there any risk if I charge the battery with an external charger, at let say 59.5 v? Hi Dinu. We don't know. Any time spent at a high...

Re: PIP-5048MS inverter

Hi all, what setting controls the 04 low battery warning. My 5048ms is triggering at 49.5 v , which is not low for my 15s lfp batteries. TIA Robert Hi Robert. The low battery warning thresholds depend on the Low Cutoff Voltage (setting 29). In the standard firmware, a low battery warning is given a...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

There are several commands I don't recognise, such as QBEQI and PBEQA, which I think may be Query Battery EQualise Inquiry and Program Battery EQualisation Active respectively. But that's just a guess. Why guess when you can google it? See http://forums.aeva.asn.au/download/file.php?mode=view&id=64...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Welcome @gbeppe

I'm guessing you have not set the battery type to "user", either by using the LCD and buttons to set parameter [5] to "USE" or "uSr", or by sending a serial command PBT02 with a CRC of 0x074C.
