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

i will buy another communication cable, and try with 2 communications cable. In the instructions for the parallel board I got it becomes clear to me that you MUST use both communication and both current sharing cables for two units in parallel. I think that the two of you may well be interpreting t...

I'm 71.80, could 73.00 help me in any way. It depends which 71.80. If as is more likely it's the one for PIP-5048MG / Axpert MKS II, then no, 73.00 is incompatible with your hardware.

Any idea what program 25 with description "Record Fault code" and options "Record enable" / "Record disable" (default) actually does... When enabled, the inverter records some information about the last (and only the last) fault; it can be accessed by the QFS and QFAULT commands. Watchpower has a p...

You should both contact Oz-DIY (the EV arm of Suzi Auto), as Graeme recently called for expressions of interest in cells or complete iMiEV/Minicab upgrades.

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

that has been niggling at the back of my mind, that the parallel master flips (maybe after one of the inverters reboots) and somehow that causes it. That actually could well be the problem. PBT (the command to set battery type) is not one of the ones that automatically sends a CAN packet whenever y...

I have them marked as L4; the 37 might be a date or lot code. L4 is the marking code for a BAT54, a common SOT-23 dual Schottky diode.

Re: adding a second inverter to the same solar array

If the solar PV was converted to AC, then through the isolating transformer, could that also be wound to drop the voltage to 240vac that would better suit the water heater element and thermostat? The water heater already runs on AC, so no need to rectify back to DC, the DC to AC could be square wav...

Re: Horizon Power Charger info

I'm no expert at this, but it seems to me that a big part of the problem is that all the wind generators have had to (presumably by law / regulation) been frequency followers, not frequency setters. So as load and generator power changes and the frequency drifts, the wind generators have to follow t...
