  1. good option imo is the ET112 from Victron, also known as Carlo Gavazzi. Although not Wi-Fi, but works well for most R
  2. I will respond to the last mail received from you now, I have checked spam etc, and cannot find anything more than that. I drive around with your cable in my vehicle, and admittedly, it has quite a couple of km's on it at the moment
  3. @JustinSchoeman If you have the lugs and cable, I am in Centurion and will assist you with the crimping if needed.
  4. I would tend to agree with @Mark generally it hovers between 25 and 50, depending on what the inverter is doing. This is mine over the past 24h, 1st spike load shedding, 2nd spike general evening bulk loads, 3rd spike battery charging. Battery temps tend to follow that graph.
  5. Thanks for that @louisjvdw, Agreed, but on the axperts those do not do the job. The 4 wire has an additional PWM pin and a sense wire vs the standard 2 wire single speed fan. So the inverter see a fan failure even though the fan might be spinning OK. The Axpert 3kW for example has the 3 wire, so basically only additional PWM for speed control.
  6. Morning @francois Nope, of the 2, one does not work spin or anything, the second one by swopping the 2 control wires, can get is to either not start up, or to spin at full speed. I will look for the part number on the 1st fan, the second fan was: 781-5089 Sanyo Denki San Ace 9GA Series Axial Fan, 92 x 92 x 25mm, 116m³/h, 3.36W, 12 V dc
  7. I am looking for Fans for Axpert. Maybe someone here knows where one can buy these? I have already bought 2 similar 4 wire fans from RS Components at their astronomical pricing, but to no avail. Eagerly awaiting any pointers of where to get, or maybe someone has one or so Axpert beyond economical repair that could assist? Thanks in advance Riaan
  8. I believe a good start would be to share 2 screenshots, under ICC you battery trends, and the load trends. As these two would give a good overview of what is happening during the night.
  9. Morning Oom Chris. I only had a 4kW Infini repaired thus far, and Mustek did a pretty quick and decent job. R
  10. I have used them on 4 separate occasions in the past 8 - 12 months, Can only speak HIGHLY of the service. Get updated on mail all along on progress etc.
  11. Not to come across insensitive, but I believe from other sources, and reading the article/watching the MTN Sponsored videos, this will NOT stop or decline any time soon. If SA cannot tackle the root cause of this issue, I do not see any decline in these thefts in the foreseeable future. For as long as our Government and it's allies (read SOE's/ESKOM) continue with their inability to provide power, the status quo would most likely remain unchanged. YES, by catching these criminals stealing and damaging, or prosecuting the end user will give some satisfaction, but in the end will
  12. In our area prepaid works exactly on the same gliding scale as post paid. This confuses the living hell out of those users. eg. buy R 500, so first R 500 would get them as example 500 units or kWh. So during the month they add another R 500, but then they only get lets say 250 units. What the munic does is not suddenly charge them double, but apply the distribution to the first purchase as well, so for the R 1000 you got at R 1,5 per unit. They work on calendar month. and PS, over 600 units/kWh per calendar month is like R 2.28 incl. Options are 0-100, then 101 to 400,
  13. Sam, discarding all the influences, You can typically expect a Maximum value of around 8316W, but on normal clear sunny day it should produce around 5775W during peak time.
  14. @Crankshaft I'm all for getting a cheapie rather than buying some expensive kit if the same can be done. My concern here for your part is what happens if that DC-DC fails. Many Voltage regulators will simply pass input through if they blow/fail. (Internal short circuit) Lost a couple of pieces myself with the older LM3xx series. Luckily all during development phases, so no real biggies. My concern if that happens you buy a new Pi which makes the Meanwell or even PULS seem fairly priced. Alternatively maybe clipping with Zener or some quick protection circuit?
