Re: Pre-charge circuit

I have a large lithium battery bank and would like to be able to pre-charge the capacitors before switching on the main circuit breakers.

Pre-charge circuit

Afternoon,
Has anyone designed or used a pre-charge circuit on an 8048A.
Be safe.

Re: backup generator died, portable generator install

I have the same Champion generator since Hurricane Matthew 2016. With 250 hours in January 2020, it was installed on a bunkhouse trailer supporting Hurricane Dorian recovery running about 3-4 hours a day. No problems.

Re: 8048/Mate3 parameters for Lithium-Ion battery bank

Equalize volts set to the same as Absorb, time to minimum allowed just in case it is inadvertently triggered, and zero days so it should never run.

Max Charging Voltage

The maximum operating DC volts for the 8048A is 68v, however the battery charger can not be set higher than 64v. Therefore, when using the inverter charger only 82% battery charge can be achieved. The question is can the 8048A charger voltage be set 68v so a 100% battery charge can be achieved. George

Morning

Has anyone installed a capacitor pre-charge circuit on a Radian for use with lithium batteries.

Thanks

Mike,

I have a 16s lithium battery setup that can charge to 4.2v per for 67.2v so looking for LBCO voltage setting around 57.6v.

Low Battery Cut Out Setting

Can the Radian's LBCO voltage be set above 54v or is there any plans to raise the limit seeing the widespread use of lithium batteries.

Re: Internet connections

Although it was difficult to connect, it did until the Ethernet port on the Mate 3s failed. Nothing else has changed except a replacement Mate 3s with the latest update. Will try a static address for the Mate 3s, but still don't understand why the Mate 3s has problems establishing a connection. George

Re: Internet connections

I have the Mate 3s with the latest update (001.004.002) and just spent the day trying to establish connection to Optics RE with numerous reboots and re-updates.

I can connect to Mate 3s direct and see all the port addresses but unable to connect to RE.

Most frustrating.

Re: Mate 3s Ethernet Port

There are no clear indications of which inverter and charge controller functions will be lost when the Mate 3s is returned for for repair. I see no way to programs any inverter functions except through the Mate.

Is this something I need to be concerned about?
