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

AGM batteries do not gas during discharge and can be charged at up to .3C rate. Charge rate will taper after meeting bulk charge voltage setting.

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

Hi Solamahn, System is 2P8S, thanks for your settings, I have been dropping the float when we leave, I think I’ll turn the fridge off also to reduce the amounts of cycles. The fridge would not normally be a problem with that size system. Your battery bank is small at 400Ah so you would have to be m...

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

Sorry Kurnol. I just re read your post. You have no grid backup. Set LVD to 46 if using factory firmware.

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

I use 58.4 for bulk and 56 for float in cold weather. 55 in warm weather and 54 when away. You should have your 2 batteries in parallel and then series 2P8S. Also check for battery cell voltage balance at full every now and then. Also set LVD at 48 and back to grid at 49. Back to battery 53

V1.14 works with 4048V. It does not work with 4048MS. I think I got V1.14 from the supplied CD

You could just connect panels direct to the hws heating element. Say 8 x 300w 36v panels in series.

Re: Inverter for 48v off grid - PIP xxxxx or something else?

I have connected the 2 existing 4800w elements in series. This gives a total of 2400w load. The reason I did this is because 4800w for 1 appliance is a bit much for 2 x 4048V inverters. There would only be 3200w left out of the 8000w total available. Yes on the ac side. The modification to the HWS i...

Re: Inverter for 48v off grid - PIP xxxxx or something else?

My existing hws 415L has 2 4800w elements. Previously the top element had off peak rate grid power connected via the top thermostat continuously and the bottom element had off peak rate timed grid power connected via the bottom thermostat. I connected both elements in series to give a total load of ...

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

New type scc boards can be fitted to old type 4048ms with the big black heatsink. Leave the heatsink but remove the old scc pcb. Mount the new type scc pcb between the 2 main board heatsinks sand connect to the 2 inductors which remain on the big black heatsink

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

I don’t think there is any exact battery voltage settings for agm’s with pips. Depends on number of panels, number and size of batteries, temperature and usage. I tend to always set bulk at 58.4, float 54 - 56, LVD 46. That’s using non Australian firmware without kettle komp. If you have utility ava...
