Re: MPP SOLAR PIP-7248MAX

I was on firmware 45.01 and had all kind of weird bugs, but since I flashed 45.04 and display 12.03 the Max is behaving a lot better. I didn't try the 90.xx series yet. Any of you did? Not me, but a user on the Powerforum has, with some success. See this post and several after it. I suspect that th...

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

@weber PIP-5048MGX = Axpert MKS III
See solarpower24.it

And don't forget PIP-8048MAX

The MAX series are very much like the MGX.
They both have the new feature to program timer settings for Output Source Priority and Charger Source Priority

I have used the MG long term batteryless in both off-grid and on-grid situations.
It works fine.

My previous one was also a 5048MG.
I am curious how this new one will be.

Re: Solar panels in series / parallel

I've had 3 x 9 of 220Wp panels = 5940 Wp connected to my 5048MG from the beginning, both with and without batteries connected, and never had any issues. Your panels might be less than 6A Imp, meaning 3 strings won't exceed 18A. It seems to be the 18A figure that is the main problem. They are 60 cel...

Re: PIP5048MG: 3Phase Configuration: Fault 08 and anomalies.

A friend of mine with a single MG has the #8 fault too. She confirmed it happens at night. This setup is batteryless with solar and util connected. My plan was to swap her MG (71.40) for mine (71.71), and see if it also happens with my MG on her setup (it doesn't on my setup). I'll double check her ...

Thanks for this weber.
Do you mean with the remark above other LFP's not being Pylontech, like 16s ones?

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Another consideration for you re MS vs MK vs GK is that they all come with the premature-float bugs . We have patched MS and MK (soon to be released) but not the GK, to fix those bugs. In that case my best option will be the MK and then use your to be released patch! Just to be absolutely clear: I ...

I've got my MG wired with a spd on the panel side and a RCCB type B on the AC side and that seems fine. What do you think?

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

I would never recommend the GK as it has no insulation monitoring of its lethal PV array. If it wasn't for the fact that you're using Pylontech batteries, there would also be no contest between the (patched) MS and the MK, because the MK (and GK) firmware still seems to have some serious bugs (that...
