Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

I'm not convinced that EEPROM wear is a problem; see my post on this a year ago. (I've just added it to the index.) It would indeed be interesting to check how many updates the BMS issues during a typical charge cycle and then how long the 1M cycles would last. I believe that the current set by a P...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

As "promised" in my last post I switched to a 48V PIP and a LiFePO4 battery with an EMUS BS at the helm. The patched firmware runs fine - thanks again for the great work! Now I can only hope that your patches still work with the recent models. Yes, that's something we'd like to know as well. If your...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Thanks a lot @weber, @coulomb for your responses!

I've decided to switch to 48V and ordered a PIP-4048MS and the battery accordingly. Now I can only hope that your patches still work with the recent models.

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

*sigh* I just realized that THE BUG is only part of the problem. The insufficient range of parameter 29 (low battery cut off) is the other. Which raises another question: is there an elegant way of disabling a) the charger and b) the inverter in response to demands from the BMS (a just as another le...

Re: PIP-4048MS inverter

Now that I've read through most of the pages, I am still wondering about the 24V model. I am currently using a PIP-2424MSX (sold in Germany under the Effekta brand) and am in the process of switching from lead-acid to LiFePo4 (GBS cells with an EMUS BMS). I do realize that the patched firmwares for ...
