Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Jaco, Any luck with the 71.70 firmware? Nope, seems that Firmware is like dealing with illegal whatever. Although newer inverters is distributed with 71.70 the firmware is nowhere to be found. Only solution according to me is to return the inverter for a refund and to buy something better. Currentl...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Hi affer did your PV start producing the next day or did you have to reset the PV going into the Inverter? Did you experience the freeze of PV Power again afterwards? Do you still experiencing dips of PV power to zero (Sometimes load related and other times not) @affer I understand the newer inverte...

Re: PIP-4048MK inverter

@affer and @coulomb how do I get hold of Firmware 71.61 and how do I upload it to the inverter?

Mustek is currently in contact with the manufacturer to try and find a solution to the freeze and dip issue but it might be solved as part of the 71.61 firmware update.

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Good day all Affer what version firmware is on your machine? Mine is running on 71.50. Might be interesting if it is different. We are currently three guys in South Africa with the same issue whereby the PV Watts is falling away. (Seems that it is happening with different Axpert models as well) Will...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Hi Mike Did a test over the weekend by connecting 2 panels in series and 6 strings. Started up with that on Saturday morning and even before 08:00 the PV Watts dipped 4 times. I then changed it back to 3 panels in series and 5 strings. What I also found is that if the PV Watts freeze up, I only need...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Mike See attached the Trend for today: Trend 2019 05 15.PNG It is interesting to see that there were more dips in the morning than in the afternoon. Also interseting to see while the Inverter was in Bypass mode no dips occurred. It might also be due to the batteries that were more charged in the aft...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Mike The highest total Power generated from the panels since installation was 3.3kW as the sun is low during winter (Bad angle towards panels) I did test by switching off strings but it still happened that the PV Watts fell away. I changed the operation yesterday to use Solar to charge the batteries...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Hallo everyone I recently commissioned a Axpert King at my house. A few problems that is still bugging me includes: 1) THe PV Watts will fall away to 0 W the moment a load is introduced. (Not only for electrical motor loads) The Watts will come back about 30 seconds later. 2) The Inverter will freez...
