**The Voltronic Zoo**
I just compiled a spreadsheet of what Coulomb calls "The Zoo" of Voltronic 230 Vac off-grid wall-mount inverters, with the specs that distinguish them. I also give model numbers for the equivalent inverters from MPP Solar, when they exist.

It only includes currently available models, not all the past models, some of which have the same numbers as current models, but different specs!

I note that when a model has a 64V option (for maximum absorb or equalise voltage), MPP Solar sell it only

*with *that option.

Here's a decoder for Voltronic model numbers of the form:

Axpert

www xxxx-

yy pppp.

www contains one of the following strings:

EX = PWM

KS = PWM (equiv PIP-HS and PIP-HSP)

VP = PWM, economy (lower charge current and not parallelable) (equiv PIP-HSE)

MEX = MPPT

MKS = MPPT (equiv PIP-MS and PIP-MSP)

MKS II = MPPT 450 V (equiv PIP-MG)

VM = MPPT, economy (lower charge current and not parallelable) (equiv PIP-MSE and PIP-MSXE)

VM II = MPPT 500 V (equiv PIP-GE)

VM III = MPPT 400 V or 500 V, removable display (equiv PIP-GK)

King = MPPT, removable display (equiv PIP-MK)

Plus Duo = 2 x MPPT (equiv PIP-MSD)

Plus Tri = 3 x MPPT (equiv PIP-MST)

xxxx (digits with possible decimal point and possible "K" for kilo) = apparent power in volt-amps

yy (digits only) = battery voltage

pppp is either "Plus" or not present

Plus = MPPT SCC with max Voc = 145 V, in the case where another model differs only in having a lower-voltage SCC (equiv PIP-

zzX

z)

Here's a decoder for MPP Solar model numbers of the form:

PIP-

xxyyzzz(

www).

xx (digits only) = true power in hundreds of watts

yy (digits only) = battery voltage

zzz contains 2 or 3 (and in one case 4) of the following letters:

M = MPPT SCC (first letter)

H = PWM SCC (first letter)

G = MPPT SCC with max Voc ≥ 400 V (first or second letter)

S is meaningless (second letter)

K = Removable display (second letter)

E = Economy (lower charge current and not parallelable) (second, third or fourth letter)

P = power factor 0.8 (third letter)

D = Dual MPPTs (third letter)

T = Triple MPPTs (third letter)

X = MPPT SCC with max Voc = 145 V, in the case where another model differs only in having a lower-voltage SCC (third letter)

(

www):

(1) = power factor 1, in the case where another model differs only in having a lower power factor

(64V) = has the 64 V max absorb voltage option
