    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Is there a base monthly charge for grid power? Just to be connected to it? Even if you use no grid power at all?

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I use the eg4 batteries. If I dont set the float to 55, my lvx6048 wont charge to 56.5(bulk) Even at 54.5 float, all it does is go to 54.5 and stop charging. I have tried 2 of these units as the first one I had developed a problem and I bought one from watts247. both did the exact same thing. I...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    Good to know because at some point I will write to her and ask for a list of recommended spares for this unit. If anyone already has that list, please post it. Thanks

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I think it very likely that 2 would start my 5 hp compressor. If I ever buy another, That will be the first thing I try. It starts ALL my other power tools even though many are 120V. That is a huge deal to me. I will be installing a 2 ton ground loop geothermal unit later this year. If that did...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    I have one LVX6048. it starts and runs everything in my home except my 5 hp air compressor. It just growls and cant quite get the lead out starting that 5 hp motor. It runs my old south bend lathes, skillsaw, well pump, heat pump hot water heater, dryer (but the dryer really kicks it into high...

    Sol-Ark 15K All in One Inverter Released.

    I am interested if it has anything to say about not balanced loads? Just curious. I cant afford one of those monsters.

    Sol-Ark 15K All in One Inverter Released.

    I saw a video from David Poz showing a Sol-Ark 12k overloading with the start of a chop saw. I saw him also demonstrate an LVX6048 which did start the chop saw and other equipment. I am wondering if the new Sol-Ark 15k will start those loads ok? It would be great if it could.

    decent LED lights

    This person has lights that perform well with my LVX6048. All other lights that I have tested have flickered with my 2 LVX units. Here is the seller minus the live link as sometimes that is not allowed. Change x to t. hxxps://www.ebay.com/itm/173333739829 This light is an old-style light that...

    MPP Solar unit suddenly not detecting PV input

    When it was not detecting the pv, did you happen to check the current? just curious if it resembles my problem.

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    MPPSolar is making me a little nervous- My first lvx6048 at only 18 amps max and 360 voc on a good day developed some kind of internal PV short on a cloudy day ??? (no smoke, no smell nothing burnt) I am sending it back to SANTAN solar to be fixed because it is still under warranty. My second...

    MPP-Solar LVX-6048

    lvx6048 says 27 amps and 450VOC for the panels input. It may be a good idea to stay under those specs.

    Damage to Panels?

    While perusing Clipping articles I found this- "Here, it helps to think in terms of thermodynamics. Modules are only about 20% efficient at converting sunlight into energy—and the rest, 80%, is largely dissipated as heat. So, say an inverter is clipping 25% of the array’s production . Then in...

    Flickering lights

    None of my LEDs flicker on grid either. no matter how cheap. Are yours run off an inverter?

    Flickering lights

    I have been told on the forum that flickering lights were caused by cheap LEDs. I have yet to find one that does not flicker even when they say no flicker on the package. If anyone finds LEDs that are the so called good ones, please let us know. My LVX6048 also flickers when the sun is out...
