  1. I have an uncle in Nelspruit needing attention of his solar system, Axpert with 4 gell batteries. Any recommendations for reliable someone?
  2. I tried switching on after unplugging faulty PCB, only get solar charge, no AC output
  3. Thanks, anyone besides Mecer if they will not sell the PCB separately? I'm in Swaziland so transport through customs becomes expensive I already have APL selected, when selecting UPS the Axpert will not see my gennie
  4. Where can I purchase spares for Axpert, mine let some smoke escape. Think its the AC output side only as it still charges via solar. I have 2 x Axperts in parallel I think its only the one PCB blown
  5. I recently installed a second parallel Axpert and have the followingissue with ICC. ICC does not see the slave Axpert, not sure if I need USB for each inverter or only Master? If I plug USB - Pi both master and slave, then ICC does not see either. If I plug only master, it sees only master. I have selected Axpert 5kva Parallel, and then specified 2 inverters and saved setting in ICC. Tried restarting ICC and Pi, no joy.
  6. Thanks, unfortunately this is a 5kVa/5KW inverter which does not have patch firmware. Will try there thanks
  7. Installed and paralleled fine, however: Master shows [04] - low battery, even when battery over 50V with setting (29), cut out, set to 47,5V;setting (26), bulk charge, set to 53,2V and setting (27) float set to 52,5V. Slave does not show low battery with same settings. ICC does not see the slave Axpert, not sure if I need USB for each inverter or only Master? If I plug USB - Pi both master and slave, then ICC does not see either. If I plug only master, it sees only master. I have selected Axpert 5kva Parallel, and then specified 2 inverters and saved setting in ICC. Tried restarting ICC and Pi, no joy.
  8. Reply from supplier " PV Block and Control board were replaced " musta been factory fault
  9. Yes I did turn power off, setting cannot be changed if power still on New machine has version 74 (5KW 5kVa PF1) old one (5KW 4kVa PF0.8) I flashed to 72.7c as per http://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?p=66644#p66644 Before flashing I had 73.00c and got error 72 'firmware version of each inverter not the same'
  10. I have just installed a second parallel Axpert and having a similar issue, I suspect the new Axpert is faulty, any assistance or advice would be appreciated, otherwise will be returning the unit next week. The new machine is the slave and gives no AC output. I tried connecting alone, removing parallel comms cables, and set it to single on setting 28 (with the parallel board still in, not sure if this makes any difference?) still no AC output Both machines accept parallel settings [HS] and [SL], but strangely the new [SL] machine flashes [NE] every 10 seconds, not sure what this means. Also ICC does not see the slave at all and if both connected ICC show different readings from the inverter If I run the geny for AC input (am offgrid), only get battery charging from the master, nothing from new slave machine
  11. Any recommendations for solar geyser, leaning towards vacuum tube type prferably. Suppliers and recomendations for brands would be appreciatedbrand
  12. Why not bond grid and Axpert Neutrals together instead of switching? The possibility of grid surges damaging Axpert perhaps?
  13. OK, there is a setting on ICC to allow both though, if both selected, not sure which it would prioritize
