  1. Mine is Version 4.0 on both recent purchases (old and new model purchased 2 days apart) The last 3 old versions have been SKSL00.0010501 - The 2 new models differed from one another: SKSL00.0009002/0011301. When I started doing the research on the new model problems, there was mention of a few different pc boards doing circulation, with different firmware versions.
  2. Morning @zsde I have been in communication with a Growatt Service Technician who advised that both the main and comms boards are different. The older inverter would need to have both replaced to correct communication and then the firmwares matched (this is another tedious exercise) In my research, on another forum, a member, after using 3 different laptops with 5 different cables, eventually managed to establish PC-Inverter communication in order to flash firmware on the new model.
  3. I have 2 Growatt SPF5000ES for sale due to parallel issues. 1 is from the early 2022 production line, the second from the later line. PCB Boards differ and do not allow for correct comms between each other and Pylontechs. Inverters were mounted and connected but never supplied loads due to the comms issues. Client insists on brand change to LuxPower, supplier does not have stock so need to sell these and purchase else where. Can be purchased individually or together. Asking price R22 700.00 for both, R11 350.00 each or to swap for 2 new 5kVa LuxPowers with Parallel capability. Location: Rynfield, Benoni.
  4. Evening Deyan, We are currently installing a 10kW system compiled of 2 x SPF5000ES and 2 x UP5000. Growatt's new batch of ES's are causing quite a lot of trouble... We had the same issue when we purchased a new ES from the old production line and one from the new line - unknowingly. We have not come right in enabling them to communicate correctly between each other as well as through BMS. Through much research it is advised to replace the comms board in the new inverter in order to allow for comms between your 4. Hope you come right!
  5. Good morning All, Hope everyone is well? Need some assistance asemblief, not sure if I'm having a blonde moment(s)... Installed a Growatt SPF 5000 HVM-P with 2 x Narada NPFC Lithiums which an absolutely peachy for a while. The past few days at 18:40 exactly the batteries stop supplying load. I've double checked the settings on the server and shine phone, even changed the output and charge times to counteract.... nada. Is it possible that these settings, although constant on the server, have been changed on the actual inverter and cannot be overridden via online software? Your input would be most awesome! TIA
  6. Thanks so much for your feedback and suggestions 87. Your time and typing is most appreciated. I have forwarded all to the installer, he is, as far as I am aware and from what I've seen, a great installer. However, first time working with the 7.2kWs and then the fun of putting each on a separate phase. They run great, its only the delay that's an issue. Thank you again for your input. SA
  7. Hey all, Hope ya'll are well? This is pretty much a via via via installation question, hope someone can assist. We, middleman, supplied a Installer 3 x 7.2kW Axpert Inverters, each one in their own phase, connected to a bank of 6 x 6kW LIs via buzzbar, charging from 3 x 9-530w Panels (27). Now I know generally there is a 10 millisecond change over time, but this lot really has a picnic when changing over, 2 seconds, full restart. Any ideas on what could be the reason for the extended delay with the change over? Unfortunately original supplier is not being of much assistance Really looking forward to your ideas and suggestions. TIA
  8. Good day All, Hope you are well? I've tried to do research on this topic but keep coming up empty handed. I'm looking to find out what the data usage for an inverter is. Whether this is a topic not commonly covered as the inverters are mainly connected to a router with unlimited data, I'm in another position where I need to ensure there is sufficient data. Setup is 3 x 7.2kw Axpert, if I can just get an average I can atleast start somewhere. Thanks in advance
  9. Morning All, Hope you are well? We busy with an installation of 2 thermosyphen systems, each on opposite sides of a building. The first one is working perfect, Geyserwise Max working spot on. Second system, Geyserwise Max is throwing out and error "EA" "E7" - communication error. Ive tried an alternate display unit and swapped out the display plug on the control box with a alternate one. Have I missed something or is this error 7 not only related to the communication between the 2?
  10. Morning All, Hope you all well? A client of ours just called asking advise on his clients 2 Victron Multiplus 5000 inverters connected in parellel which are not reading the panels. Unfortunately, I am not the brains of our operation, my hubby is and I cant get hold of him, no signal. Best time to learn. Could anyone possibly advise why the inverters wouldnt be picking up the panels? I swear, im not a blonde (haha) but would be great to see if i could assist somehow. Thanks.
  11. Hey all, Seems like this guy just won't stop. I really hope my warning helped someone else atleast. I have a gentleman ready to grab this guy, he's the owner of the security company for my day job company. Used to be a cop and a Red Ant or Hawk. Please let me know if you come across a pastor on Facebook or anywhere and I will take it further. Will be the only way we catch this NonRobin Hood waste of space. Thanks all. Be safe.
  12. Hey all, Happy Christmas Eve! Wish it was happier for us.... We were tricked into purchasing a 5kVa Growatt and selling it to a Pastor Wesley Solomon at Founders Memorial Congregational Church in Coronationville. He claimed to have been scammed too many times that now only did COD and would not pay a deposit. Hubby delivered the Inverter, ther grounds keeper signed for it and produced a cheque. Cheque was completely legit, problem was it was donkey years old and the account didnt exist anymore. Conned out of 10k the day before Christmas. Be safe and careful guys, these people really dont give 2 hoots what position you in and what your family is facing. December has us R22250 down so far and a R21500 loss on a vehicle due to age.... Down and out but we managed to get the kids at least a lil something. Merry Christmas all, take care.
