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

Happy NewYear folks. So my pip inverter failed on me. not even 6 months old. Thanx to this forum I now know that my inverter is "fake" one and it can not be updated. I asked the seller for a comment on this one and I did show him this webpage and the evidence to its fakeness. He would speak to the ...

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

Hi Thomas, would be a small Linux setup a solution for you? I monitor two EASUN Isolar SM 5kW 64V with a small set of self written shell scripts. It will be four inverters in some weeks. All parameters are written into a data-text-files, then imported into an influx DB and then displayed via grafan...

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

"With WatchPower unable to actively monitor multiple PIPs in parallel" It works ok with two and another two on a different system over the internet so that makes four at once. WatchPower 1.13SP3 does show multiple attached inverters. Yes, one can select each one of them and view the data. But data ...

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

Hi all, After running my 5048 EA-Sun unit happily for many months (after having flashed new firmware to overcome my initial FW error code), I am now planning to extend my setup: Moving from 5000 to 10000 recycled 18650, moving from one 5048 to 4 units 8-) Total usage capacity should come to above 70...

Hi all, SUCCESS ! :D Today I received the USB to Serial converter (ordered via AliExpress from China to Switzerland). After connecting my PC to inverters RJ-45 port I startet Watchpower. Then I swi...

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

@mariusvaida hi, what do you have there, is a clone. I doubt you will be able to flash it. I have also two of this clone, tried to flash without success. I can't send personal message, it's brand new registration on this forum. Do you refer to my EASUN unit? Do you have EASUN units, too? Would be g...

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

Another quick question:
To check the USB-RS232-RJ45 setup before updating firmware, can I simply run watch power on the PC and see if it finds the inverter via serial link ?

Rgds,
Thomas

That looks to be quite genuine. Is there a small sticker with 2017 and twelve squares with square 9 blacked out? Yes there is (was ...

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

Hi Coulomb, Since I have 14S BMS with passive balancing per 168 LiIo cell blocks (14S12P) the main balancing happens close to 58.8V. So I contacted EASUN what the max setting value is and they stated 58.4V but for 30$ extra they can provide me a 64V capable modified version of the inverter. I had to...
