Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

Any fan ... With the arduino board modifications, I mean. Sorry, I thought is self explanatory.

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

I would say YES, read my other posts. Any fan with same dimensions and pwm with 4 wires will work. Better and quieter.

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

Two bulget caps on the main board. I presume are the filter caps on the power source for the cpu board. The experience members can confirm or deny this statement. Attached is a pic of this caps.

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

What is the difference between old and new ssc board? Basically, the new board is much longer, the new SCC heatsink is better positioned in front of the fans, and the PV terminal block connects to the SCC PCB via a pair of metal bars attached to the PCB. Old board (sorry for the poor photo, all I c...

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

For those who have tried to change the fan and ended with 01 error or for those who want to alter the fan (not the original one) speed accordingly with the original fan speed variation (run cooler in hot environment) I have a solution, its a hardware/software one but dirt cheap. If are interested pe...

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

Its shown in video, arctic f8 pwm, this are very quiet. Until now has only two times occurred the fan lock error. And thats long time ago. If you can live with that is fine, you have been warned. Don't forget to reorient the fan to blow upwards, the inverter is much cooler.

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

daimyo can you look on Youtube for that, I have posted a video. Is very easy with the right tool and skills (I'm an obstetrician)....... No I'm not, is a joke. But you get the idea? Sorry for the mirrored video, was filmed with the front facing camera. You don't need to unmount the inverter from th...

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

In wich voltronic have you seen this firmware version? Thats the official statement from the seller, recived via email from chinese manufacturer: ” its a special firmware developed ( maybe becose of copyright) for this inverter, it's not upgradable". I don't think so, when I have the time and money,...

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

You must not be surprised, in China will be always a manufacturer (at least) who clone another succes sale. Voltronic is no exception, mine looks like a genuine voltronic but are slightly bigger (are dipper). Loads are shared properly until now, I will see how it handles a second PV string on second...

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

Why shows in Watchpower 2 usb connected inverter? Mine are also parallel tied but shows only 1, the master. Have you connected both inverter to your PC? My advice, download Lucibus, trial version and play with the settings. The software send commands to the inverters ans so you can see if is softwar...

@mariusvaida hi, what do you have there, is a clone. I doubt you will be able to flash it. I have also two of this clone, tried to flash without success. I can't send personal message, it's brand new registration on this forum.
