Hi Howard. No. But I'm happy to convert another one for anyone who wants to pay.
Sure.May be you can give me some ideas on my VR commodore when I get round to it:)
Hi IonutD. Thanks for testing. What version were you running before the upgrade? What were the ambient air temperatures before and after? Were you running our LFP version or our lead-acid/lithium-cobalt version of 72.70c beta?
Hi dinu_tiberiu_george. Yes, it was a mistake to connect an ethernet cable to the RS232 port of the inverter. You should only use the cable that was supplied with the inverter, and a USB to D9 serial adapter, as we describe here. But I hope that MPPSolar support will recognise that by having an RJ45 socket for its RS232 port the product invites such a connection, and so I hope they will supply you with a new comms board.dinu_tiberiu_george wrote: ↑Sat, 02 Dec 2017, 23:43Hy again. Today i have a smoky problem. I have 2 pip 5048ms connected in parallel. I connected my master pip 5048ms with an ethernet cable to the laptop and try to establishing the connection. And a minutes later a very dense smoke came out from the inverter. The inverter is still working properly, but the usb connection is not working any more on this inverter. If i use the connection from the slave inverter is working properly. I think that my comunication board of my inverter has gone. I already write a mail to mppsolar suport. Was it a mistake trying to connect via an ethernet cable trough rs322 port?
If not, it can probably be repaired by replacing a few low-cost parts. If they are charred beyond recognition, tell us what their designators are (e.g "U2", "R3", printed in white on the circuit board) and we'll look them up. Or better still, post a photo.
