  1. Hi @Cor Unfortunately I have since moved away from using the wifi box and settled with ICC software. I remember I had similar issues and had a marathon email sessions with MPP Taiwan. part of the pdf on how to configure the wifibox setting they sent to me is attached for your use. PS: Make sure you input correctly in the wifibox homepage setting your home internet SSID and password word for word Wifi box & card quick setting(EN).pdf
  2. Hi @Cor you need to open up the WiFi box with a screw driver and change the jumper from “1-2” position to “2-3” position to manually reset the box to default as stated in the manual
  3. just as @Coulomb said the rs-232 cable that came with the axpert inverter connects to the serial usb cable you will purchase (see pics below) I finally got to update both the Main firmware and screen firmware this morning. There was a little bit of scare though when I was updating the screen firmware. The inverter screen went blank completely and I panicked. I finally re-pluged the cable after I had removed it and shut down the batteries, started the flash all over again, when it completed 100%, the inverter screen came back on
  4. Hi @Coulomb According to the axpert king manual, flashing of new firmware can also be done through a flash drive connected to the USB port. Just want to know if this is applicable in this scenario using these softwares before I upgrade my inverter Thanks
  5. Hi can you upload the screen firmware 2.00 for download? i know @Coulomb only posted the main firmware 71.86 thanks
  6. @ChristoSnake are the 24x330w Canadian solar panels connected to just one infinisolar 5Kva inverter in your setup? That thing has like a maximum PV size of about 4000w according to the spec sheets.
  7. Well, if the 375W in 3S2P arrangement will not exceed the max 145voc recommended by the inverter and limits itself to the 330W ,then I don't mind this. just want to be sure there wouldn't be any other issue Yea I know shipping/export/import do suck sometimes and come with its headaches. my shipper misplaced my Pylontech cables from china and he wasn't really happy having to pay for the full purchase and shipping
  8. my Pylontech batteries are currently communicating with the axpert king inverter and it uses a charge and float voltage of 53.2V which cannot be altered unless one disables the PLY 05 setting and go for the USER option. I hope this is not an issue going by your recommended 52.5V? for the Jump, I have noticed that my batteries usually ideals at 89% SOC for some hours before it gradually moves to 100% within 5 minutes or less
  9. Hi @Jaco de Jongh Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I am in Lagos Nigeria not SA Looking for a quick solution I can come up with locally that will not involve importation Thanks
  10. Hi Guys I really need your advice right now @plonkster Currently have 6 numbers 330W Canadian solar Panels in 3S2P hooked up to an Axpert King (used to be a Morningstar Tristar MPPT 60A which I have retired) Looking forward to double it to meet up to the 4000W and 145V limit of the inverter. unfortunately, my local suppliers don't have the 330W in stock anymore. They only have 305W, 375W and 385W available.I am looking at adding 375W in 3S2P to the equation as a last resort. Is this advisable? 330W data is voc=45.6,vmp=37.2,isc=9.45,imp=8.88 while for 375W voc=47.6,vmp=39.8,isc=9.93,imp=9.43 What possible scenario / option do I have to take to not exceed the 145V max of the inverter and at the same time add up more panels. thanks
  11. I remember reading up on this report and was shocked with the results of the Pylontech batteries Happy I went this route
  12. Thanks for this Youda Will give the ebay link a go I'm not from SA and I don't think they ship international
  13. Hi Youda my Shipping agent misplaced my Pylontech cables connecting the batteries to the inverter when I ordered for 3 numbers US3000 batteries. I have informed the factory for a replacement but it’s taken time Please where can I order for these cables online ? Thanks
  14. Hi Coulomb I will be installing 3 numbers US3000 sometime next week. going by your analogy (3x 35) = 105A rounded down to 100A. Just wondering if charging the batteries with 100A is not on the high side?
  15. This is the problem I am having...... I had already connected the wifi box with the cable supplied to the inverter and I used a spare DSTV adapter as power but I wasn't seeing any SSID as "wificard" among the listed wifi's on my windows 10 laptop. I have contacted MPP Taiwan and they said I should get a 12V 1A adapter as power. Hopefully I should get one today and keep you posted Thanks once again
