Slightly used for 4 months as backup if power went out.

Growatt 12000T DVM-MPV, never a blip.

When I purchased this inverter, I also purchased an additional main board and control board for backup so I did not have to source them down the road.

$950 $800 $725 for inverter by itself.

Asking $975 for the inverter and boards

Pickup in Dexter, Missouri or I could ship for additional. Comes on same small pallet I recieved it on.

Wouldn't mind having this but just bought a pair of grid interactive 10kw aio's. Have a buddy that might be interested, I'll ask him. FWIW, the spfxxxt are actually a high-freq inverter followed with a transformer. For someone looking for good surge capability, this inverter should do the trick.

Awesome Thank you đź‘Ť
 
I will split the inverter and replacement boards but both have to be claimed for me to do so.

I would take $1350 for the inverter. And $350 for the main power board &control board.

That is incorrect. These are indeed true low frequency inverters manufactured by Sigineer for Growatt.
 
I finally got my hands on a SPF 6000T.
I was very surprised to find that the inverter output is 20 to 24vac. And an isolation transformer steps that up to the 120v/ 240v split-phase.
In pass through mode, the secondary of the transformer is used as an auto-transformer, as I suspected.
Which definitely means that it should not be connected to grid at all. Unless a separate isolation transformer is placed between it and the grid.
It's nice to finally confirm my suspensions about these units.
But, the inverter to transformer voltage was completely unexpected.

If you keep it around, they are pretty robust when it comes to starting loads.
 
Yeah they are good for basic grid replacement especially with difficult loads, but they are basically dangerous to use "on grid"
And they are a bit to very shite as a PV charger !!!!

I'm keeping it.
I just haven't found a use for it yet.
I got it free from a member, here on the Forum. (I paid shipping)
To see if I could fix it. (I did)
I mostly just wanted to have a look inside for myself.
After many conversations and guessing about how it functioned.

What was wrong with it ?

So the isolation transformer would have to be sized according to the inverter capacity?
 
Or pass through, whichever would be highest.
I currently have the 12k flavor of this and it works very well but I do have it connected to the grid. I have a feeling sourcing a proper isolation transformer would cost more than replacing it with something else.

I've had good experience with them as pv chargers. I've had two 6000Ts as well, connected to grid, off-grid, in everyway imaginable never hiccups or issues. Maybe I got lucky.

If you are the only customer on the utility transformer and if you connect an input neutral to the output neutral. (Making it a common neutral system)
You can get by without the extra transformer.
 
Or you could simply set it up as off grid only and use something like the chargeverter when the batteries get low.

Other than a random no pv start, my 6000t has been reliable for 2+yrs.
That's where It'll land eventually but I don't have enough PV yet to abandon the grid.

Added more panels and a Growatt sc48120 charge controller to the spf6000t. Only had two winter days where any power had to come from the grid, to run the shop. SolarAssistant works with the Growatt spfxxxxt line and if you have a newer sc48120, it is supposed to also work with that.

Guess we're keeping this add bumped up for the seller. Did I mention the 12k is very good at starting heavy loads???
