  1. Hi, I have the exact same issue. This only started after I asked china to upgrade the firmware. I have not changed anything. Using a Deye 8KW with 4 x Pylon 3500 lithiums. the battery constantly drains 10w-15w after reaching the set DOD.
  2. Hi im looking for a single Pylon US3000B please, must be a B. 08three 445132sx
  3. Item: Goodwe ES-5048 Age: a year Price: 20000 Payment Method Accepted: EFT Warranty: Yes Packaging: no Condition: Very good Location: Centurion Reason: 8kw Shipping: hell no if you send courier sure Collection: Yes comes with all wiring including Smart Meter. Unit is in pristine condition. Price is slightly negotiable. 083 FOUR 45 132 SIX
  4. Hi Chris, I bought a new set of long cables, then cut the small link set that comes with the battery and used a very large crimper to crimp the cables. I ran the cables between the racks first and cut them to the right length, also moved the negative that runs to the inverter to the 2nd rack to maintain equal charge/discharge.
  5. Hey Everyone, I have been silently following this forum for some time, even though I had a genie. We wanted to get solar around 2 years ago, but the upfront cost was just too much. so we got a 18Kv diesel genie which worked 100%. The problem was that people complained about the noise and soon after they changed the time frame to use a genie. We decided to do what we wanted 2 years ago. Go solar! I have done a lot of research and learned a helluva lot during this period. Everything was designed and installed by myself with knowledge also gained from this forum. The components I used for this below; Goodwe ES5048 3x Pylontech 3.5 batteries 12x JA Solar PERC 410w panels Various AC and DC breakers Various trunking, crimpers, lugs, plugs, ferrules etc. AC wring all 10mm used DC wiring 35mm on Batt, 6mm on solar (had 25mm on, and started to get hot when added the 3rd batttery) These were bought from various suppliers. First was to create a base layout of the system. Amberfield Solar Rev06.pdf Then the DB layout of how the non essential and essential loads would be wired into the main DB. DB Layout.pdf The hardest part was to get the battery cabinets that high without any help mounted correctly. The system works absolutely amazing. Nice to do anything during the day knowing eskom's straw is blocked now.
  6. you need to set the rest of the time to 1% charge.
  7. Set under PV Master - advanced, right on the bottom. Off grid DoD and On grid DoD.
  8. PV Master -> Basic -> Eco -> set multiple battery groups with the appropriate charging/discharging schedules . then exit without restart
  9. then you have to use eco with battery profiles. I use it and prefer this over general. if you set charging power to anything over 1% it will use grid power COMBINED with pv power to charge batteries, the higher you set it the higher the charging rate will be from the grid.
  10. I was on 17178. I am also using economical but on the battery profile I set the power to 0% so the entire charging process comes from PV. Maybe you have the profiles incorrectly set? If you don't set a charging group, they will start to discharge immediately. Log a ticket to support, it took a day for them to upgrade it, I had SOC issues before on 17178 and its all fixed now.
  11. got the latest firmware today Firmware Version6181811
  12. How can I manually install 181809? I did not get the OTA.
  13. @Mark2, Very neat setup indeed. I also started out that route a few years back. I fiddled with HASSIO, Openhab, Home assistant and just didn't like it. It was too finicky and not very reliable. I am very deep into the apple eco system and gave homekit a try and never looked back! it is fairly straight forward and very reliable. I am using homekit with a few other API's including node red, and homebridge to translate non HAP approved devices to talk on homekit. the key for me here is not to display funky stuff that I cannot use, but to be ultra reliable as it runs the security of the house. I also have various automation rules in place to control blinds, lights, temperature, pool and so on, except from the main devices that have access to homekit and siri, I have ipads spread out in the house against the walls (flush mounts I got from Howlo) with the below panel in guided access mode so no one can mess about. it has been very reliable the past 3 years give or take. The biggest advantage of this setup is Siri. you can control anything just with a voice prompt, absolute convenience. Yes I know hassio/homeassist/openhab can also, but it ain't the same.
  14. Yes, using PV master, then basic settings, set mode 3(backup) and on advanced settings change backup output switch to ON. It is just below backup ON. You also need to set charging schedules as the default is 00:00 to 23:59.
  15. do you mind sending me his details? Im in centurion
