    Grid Tied Inverter

    I know right? I did not expect that at all... Thought I would have to buy the new stuff and Sell out of hand the batteries and Inverters I have

    Grid Tied Inverter

    Thank All for the Replies and Info... Supplier is going to take back the 3 axperts and supply 2 X Solis 3.6kw with limiters and wifi etc. Need to rewire the 7kw array into 2 strings in series.
  4. Nope, Only one... Thanks!
  5. I seem to have the Dual MPPT version of the 5kva... but it is running Version 52... HOw do I tell for sure? ICC reports MPPT1 and MPPT2 I cannot seem to get it to pull enough power from the 7k array... It should be good to patch to 75.31?

    Grid Tied Inverter

    Dont care for sending back to the grid, Also, I am sure its not available here yet. I just want to use my power on my house. and go to grid at night where I use much less. Would Above Inverters need to send back to Grid?

    Grid Tied Inverter

    Ok So that did not work !! Bought a small set of royal batteries just to get these 3 Axperts to pull power from the panels (As my previous bank was end of life).... But alas, It seems everything needs to go through the batteries irrespective. So its pulled them flat twice already today... I need another Solution from the Gurus please... True Grid Tie, No Batteries... I want to pull Maximum power from 7kw array during day and move to Grid seamlessy at night or low solar power... Needs to take Generator for Power Outages. hich are few and far between Thoughts please ? 3 brand new, just installed 04 APR 2018 Axpert 5kw Inverters for sale

    Axpert 5KVA No Batteries?

    I like this idea as option 1... Where Can I find a Load Tester, short of me removing all 8 Batteries and taking to my local Battery Centre.

    Axpert 5KVA No Batteries?

    could I get by with getting a small bank of say 4 X 105AH for now? Would that then allow Solar to provide the load (like it used to)

    Axpert 5KVA No Batteries?

    I dont mind running at night on Utility as my load is minimal at night. I am trying to get my high day time load fully supplied by Solar if possible. Pool Pump, Heat Pump, Borehole pump, PRessure Pump, ashine machine etc. (If I run on Utility I could pay R1000 a week... if I switch to inverters / SBU then I come down to R600 a week.) But now since we replaced the 2 "blown" inverters last week, I cannot seem to get Solar to kick in well and supply the load... (Due to the batteries I think that are poked)

    Axpert 5KVA No Batteries?

    Hi there Probably a stupid question as I think I know the answer already. Can these Inverters run with no batteries and only on Panels and switch to Utility when when needed? I pulled the fuses to the battery bank and they just fault. My Batteries need replacing but dont have 50 or 60 k right now

    Patched firmware based on version 73.00

    How does one find out of it is a clone orr true Voltronic? Model Numbers?

    Patched firmware based on version 73.00

    Hi There, TO be clear about patching the firmware, do we need to install the base first of 73? before installing 73.00b? Or is 73.00b all inclusive? (Now to hunt down the cable ) I am still on 52...
  15. Hey Everyone, I had a solar solution installed about 3 or 4 years ago now... Lightning apparently hit the Axpert 5kVa Inverters and Insurance paid out so now replacing the 2 damaged ones (error 72 after 5 min running). Both Inverters have their own string of 9 X 250w panels. Installing a Third Inverter with its own set of 9 X 275w panels now too while at it, to increase my daytime load capacity. Batteries are tired though... I get maybe 5 min out of them 8 X 105?aH .. According to Invoice was supposed to be 150aH. But not marked anywhere on batteries, so not sure. Installation was messy, where All NEutrals from Panels were wound together and taped. One String of panels did not seems to be producing well either... Also got taken for a ride on pricing for the entire lot... was too excited at the time and did not do my homework as I should have... Albeit , things were more expensive 3 or 4 years ago... So anyway, long saga , short... the new installer is tracing everything and double checking all is well... And I am wanting to double check him So Hence I found you Guys! Already did some reading this weekend and lots to take in... I will post questions and concerns in the relevant areas, Thanks All! Regards Allen
