Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

Yes, my galaxy s7 works "fine". Well, I need to be about close as 2m and it's still disconnect now and then. But yes, I can use BT with my inverters. And I think BT is on by default. I do not need activate it before using. Walls and other thing between android and PIP, cause lots of signal loss... ...

Re: PIP-5048MK inverter

anyone know of a protocol manual? i would like to see if i can read out the daily, monthly and yearly production/usage. With help from Coulomb, it looks like the command could be "QLD" which might stand for Query Logged Data. It returns 10 numbers. I'm guessing the last 8 might be: daily PV kWh dai...

Please ask MPP Solar for the PIP-5048MK Communications Protocol Manual, then post it here for the benefit of all. They had no problem with supplying it for the PIP-4048MS.

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

Hi Can anyone tell me if firmware 73.00e has parameter "39 Equalization activated immediately" functionality? The inverter currently has 72.40 on it and I would like to upgrade it. No. 73.00e does not have parameter 39. It does not have any of the parameters relating to equalisation, because the fa...

Re: PIP Inverter Error "error 09" bus soft start failed

It may be that some of the gate driver components for those IGBTs are damaged, causing some IGBTs to be permanently or easily turned on, resulting in shoot-thru. See pages 18 and 19 of the service manual https://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/4111/Copy_of_PIP-HS_MS_4-5KVA_new_Service_manual_201506A.pdf ...

You could try unplugging and replugging the internal cables that connect between the parallel board and the main board and control board.

Hi Tejota , I can only guess that maybe there is an intermittent bad connection on one of the current-sharing cables -- the twisted pairs of wires going into the green plugs. With the loads disconnected, or in bypass mode ([01]=uti), you could try pulling gently on each wire where it enters its plug...

Re: Tesla advert for a car that doesn't exist

That was so painful to watch, and so uninformative, I'd really like that 30 minutes of my life back. So most of the work was done by Marcos Ramirez in a 3 week period while Simone was overseas, and apparently none of that was filmed.

Re: PIP Inverter Error "error 09" bus soft start failed

how can I test the IGBTs. For me GW80H65DFB are installed That's a great little tester for $10. But I see from eBay that it doesn't claim to test IGBTs. However, since your IGBTs have a built-in anti-parallel diode (free-wheeling diode), they might test as MOSFETs, if you can get their 0.2"-spaced ...

I'm assuming the 10 yrs is calendar age and not used cycle life. How many cycles do you think you got out of the 40 Ah Sky Energy LFP cells? Probably only 500 cycles. 700 at the most. I think most of the ageing has been due to time and temperature. They spent the first 3.5 years of their life on a ...
