System combining both 8048 and 8048A?

Postby koalamotorsport on Wed Oct 18, 2017 9:04 pm

I have two 8048 Radians. I am at the point where I would like to add two more, but they are obsolete.

Can I add 8048A units to my system without issue?

If I can, should I make one of the 8048A units the master, or simply add them as slaves?
Thanks!

The 8048A and 8048 models are not compatible. Have you tried looking online or calling some solar distributors to see if they still have back stock of the 8048 series? You might be able to get them at a discount.

Thanks Kurt, they are out there, albeit thus far at the same price as the A models. I'll keep my eyes open.
Thanks!
