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

Does anyone know what would happen if I connect more panels power than nominated... example... I connect 4.500W of solar panels to 4000W nominated device That level of "overclocking" is safe and is commonly used. The solar charge controller just stops "trying harder" when it reaches its power limit...

Hi guys, Does anyone know what would happend if I connect more panels power than nominated... example...

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

Thank You for explanation, but is there any way to fix this? I already told you how to fix it, if it is due to a difference in battery voltage calibration. Follow the link in my previous post. If you get all three inverters reading the same battery voltage within ±0.1 V and the problem still occurs...

Thank You for explanation, but is there any way to fix this? I can make video so that you can see what is happening during charging when batteries are almost full or full.

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

Hi again ;) Is there any way to "calibrate" battery charging icon on display...? Even when my batteries are full, icon still show that it is charging empty battery (icon is with no bars, then one, than two,...and so on) It is different battery status on each inverter (total 3) :shock: Thank You.

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

So my observation is that temperature is not displayed properly (max temperature on inverter). I assume that this is happening during the day while the Solar Charge Controller is running. It could be that the SCC sensor is on the MOSFET heatsink, and not on the heatsink on top, which I believe is f...

Ebay seller said that V2 model is EOL and new model is: https://www.ebay.com/itm/163192198388 ? But the one shown in the Ebay advertisement is a V2. Perhaps he/you meant that the V are now at end-of-life, and the V2 are replacing them. But the V2 are 450 V max MPPT models, so you'd need to add insu...

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

Does anyone know is it possible to "return" excess power, when batteries are full, to grid (power company) with PIPs or I have to buy new 10kW grid inverter to do that? My understanding is that the models that can operate without a battery (so that excludes yours) can in some modes push power from ...

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...

Hi,

Today have finally made some time to update my PIP firmware from 52.30 to 73.00e on my 3 inverters. ;)

Everything works excellent for now.

Thank you guys.

A story about fans> I have changed all mine so they push air up I have also added two more 120mm fans to the top vents on the inverter drawing air out.

Re: PIP inverter repairs and hardware modifications

Hi guys.

Oldest of 3 inverters has error 01... fan not working.

What is the simpliest way to replace defective fan?

What fan do i need, what connector on fan?

Do I need to unmount inverter from the wall to replace it?

Thank you and best regards
