Hey guys, I'm an installer and have done more than 50 installations with Mecer, Kodak, Phocos Anygrid, RCT, Growatt etc. Yesterday I installed the RCT 3kVA 48V inverter from Rectron in Midrand, and to my surprise the inverter burst on switching on the ON/OFF switch. The inverter was installed with Dyness 3.6kWh 48V battery. Anyone envountered the same problem before? Thanks in advance

3 kVA sounds like a 24 V model. Are you positive it is a 48 V model? I think that they used to make a 3 kVA (2.4 kW) 48 V model some years ago, but I can't quickly find one on the Voltronic Power website just now.

Obviously, applying 48+ V to a 24 V model is not going to end well.

the heading does say 48 volts , but in the description it says 24 volts

The label on the side will be the definitive reference. It's sad if you've blown it up because of a copy and paste error.

If their web site is wrong, I'd say you have a good claim for your money back.
