Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

How can I set the date and time on 5048MK? You have to use the front panel menu 95-99. Also you have to be slow and change each setting individually - as in the manual, each time pressing ESC - or it doesn't register. Also setting the minutes is problematic - it won't accept a reduction or increase...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Thanks for the comments coulomb, mine is the PIP-5048MK - so it is the 48v model. BUT as it's manufactured before January 2019 - it can't get the newer firmware (according to Andy Y at MppSolar) - so it's obsolete! Both myself and Nuno have dialogues open with MppSolar (so called) support, but no jo...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Well, I made the decision, I build my own system to monitor of my "power plant"... I do not use controllers own software and hardware to read values. Then I can use what ever I want, to feed power to the system or drain power from the system. That project maybe last long, but when it is "ready" (if...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

I've read a lot of threads but I was not able to find someone to confirm that 5048MK is able to work without any battery. The PIP-5048MK is not designed to work without a battery - in fact it barely manages to function with one! According to the this pdf: http://www.mppsolar.com/v3/catalogs/PIP-MS_...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Best of luck with MPP Solar support - I've been trying for a month to get some sense out of them. My AGM batteries will only get a full (Bulk+Float) charge if I set it to ECO mode (button or WatchPower) other wise it stops charging after a short time. Now it switches back to re-charge at night when ...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

I'm also installing/commissioning a PIP-5048MK, no major problems so far, just minor glitches and niggles - but WatchPower is pretty dire ;) Downloaded and got ICC working on a spare Pi today, but not activated the trial key yet - as it only lasts 7 days, so need to make sure everything works before...
