Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

I bought one of these clones. It came with a parallel kit installed. Parallel mode was enabled. So far, I haven't been able to install Coulomb's firmware but I haven't tried since I turned parallel mode off. It is however working quite well and I will probably buy a second and possibly third one to...

Thanks everyone for the awesome input. Always hated that my two units didn't match I bought them at different times.

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Weber since I got your help my units have been working flawlessly till that bad lightning storm recently. I think it's worth investing in another unit as a backup my system was not the same minus the two thousand Plus watts of solar when the one unit stoped charging????

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Yes Weber I'm scared that the problem will pop back up. I tried shutting everything off and powering it down a few times, still got error code (voltage difference) and crazy voltage differences between the two units... the hated blinking red light!. (Maybe I didn't wait long enough?) I thought unit ...

PIP-4048MS inverter

Your best bet for fixing this would seem to be finding the appropriate voltage divider resistor (or chain of resistors), and tweaking the values until it reads more accurately. Of course, you can't do much about drift and so on, but it sounds like a decent improvement could be had that way, if you ...

What bluetooth device do you recommend
Think i'm liking bluetooth... wifi can be kinda slow to respond and if you loose internet switch does not work. But it's way cool to control from any where. Hard to beat sonof wifi switch prices!!!
