Re: FP1 and rapid shutdown

Rapid shutdown, as stated in 690.12, is for PV system circuits in or on buildings. This means that a PV system where all the equipment and conductors are not mounted on buildings are not required to follow 690.12. In this case, the conductors on or entering the building would be required to follow 6...

Re: Battery Monitor issue

I never dived deep into custom settings staying with defaults. Indeed, absorb to float stage trigger is time based, not current. I set battery type, voltages, and capacity and go. Charging efficiency is set to default Auto. I never felt that I needed to use custom set-up, SOC is very consistent in s...

Re: Freshing charge on Enercell200NC

Cycle Charging is the complete recharging of a battery after it has been fully or partially discharged during normal operations. Typically, a cycle charge is based on an 8 hour time period that recharges the battery and restores it to a fully charged condition.

Re: How to convert AC coupled to DC?

Look back at the figure of direct current. The voltage doesn’t change over time; this is one of the defining characteristics of DC. If the voltage isn’t changing, the frequency is effectively zero. So it doesn’t really matter how you define “low frequency”: a frequency of zero is low. Pass DC throug...

Re: fxr48v inverter does not charge lithium batt

Can I recharge my lithium battery from my vehicle alternator? – Yes, but not necessarily to full charge, due to the fact that most Alternators are adjusted for the lower voltage requirements of the vehicle Lead/Acid Battery (approximately 13.9-Volts). Lithium Batteries require 14.4 to 14.6-Volts to ...

Re: Charging Opzv2000 off grid

In some regions of the world, certain applications require high capacity backup solutions in unstable or off-grid environments, where frequent power outages put a heavy demand on batteries. NorthStar OPzV tubular gel batteries deliver high capacity reserve power and deep cycle performance. A long se...

Re: List of freq/watt compliant inverter’s?

Frequency-watt control is an autonomous inverter function that does not require communications. Hence it is feasible for large numbers of distribution-connected inverters to perform such a function without a communications network or standardized communication protocols by pre-programming the invert...

Re: Keeping batteries charged during winter shutdown

Remove batteries, storing them in a cool, dry place where they won't freeze. (On wood surfaces, in garages or storage facilities, is recommended.) Ideally, trickle charge batteries or charge them monthly. This prevents self-discharge and extends lifespan.
