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

If a patch will come out at some point I'd rather wait with my non 64V. Patched firmware 74.40e is now in early alpha testing (eyeballing the code). Depending on my time, it should be available for beta testing in the next week or so. That's amazing news, thank you. Crazy that our purchase decision...

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

Hey all, I have an option to go with a 64V inverter which I'd like as my current 5kw with 74.30 does not support patched firmware as yet, but based on the clipping issue at lower voltages I know this is not ideal. Which is better, the 64V with patched firmware or the unpatched version I have now? If...

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

If I connect the Victron to ICC Err, are you talking about a Victron MPPT as before, or a Victron BMV now? I don't know if you can connect a Victron MPPT to ICC, but I'm certainly no Victron expert. Perhaps they "speak the same language". do you think charging will work alright with the load split ...

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

i hear you on the 3S, I can still do 2S but the distance from the panels to the inverter is around 12M so I was thinking cable loss would drop the voltage enough that it isn't too much of an issue, would you still go 2S? I do wire my 72-cell panels 2S, with 14 strings (8 plus 6, two PIP-4048MS inve...

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

Hey guys, Hi and welcome. I'm installing 18 x 365W Canadian Solar panels in 3S config, I wince every time I read about someone connecting 3S of 72-cell panels to a 145 V max Solar Charge Controller. will the additional amperage be an issue using the built-in MPPT? 18 x 365 W nominal = 6 570 W nomin...

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

Hey guys, Thanks so much for the effort you guys have gone to here, never would have picked one of these up without the guidance here and on the SA forum. I'm installing 18 x 365W Canadian Solar panels in 3S config, will the additional amperage be an issue using the built-in MPPT? (Losses aside) I'm...
