• This is some 10 to 16 years old. Model 651.626.
    Brought it out as moved the Victron 1200 to the workshop and want soemthing to recharge the Fridge, Bag of Riddim II, Old Nokia 6303, and more.
    It seems fine though a bit noisey with the fan running even on low loads. It's desugned for 10 to 16 volts

  • Hi

    I have just bought an inverter form Wind and Sun UK, I called them for two reasons

    1) to find out what current the inverter takes when it is switched off and

    2) to say the manual was disappointing

    So

    1) how does switching work as it isn't a power switch that physically breaks and joins the 200A input cables,

    i) What is the rating of the dc input cables?

    ii) How are the input DC cables connected, I imagine there must be some loss?

    iii) Does the power switch, in the off position, just a break in power to a relay, that when on enables the dc circuit to work and connects the DC input.

    2) The manual says very little, maybe there is little to say, but it could state

    i) the load in the off, as above,

    ii) the image in the index is very poor and hardly usable and the one on your website, which isn't mentioned in the manual isn't much better. Could you send me a detailed image or is their one on the website. All I could find is a version of the manual; which I made a screen shot of and enlarged.

    A third matter

    3)

    i) The UK 230v socket is upside down and the mains cable blocks easy access to the power switch.

    ii)Your image show it the correct way.
    Can I unscrew the body and correct this?

    iii) plus the socket isn't screwed in place and moves around a bit

    4. Finally I am disappointed it is made in China, prior to purchase I though it would be India like the MPPT 75|15

    Thank you

  • Cable or Wire: The tendency is to think of cable as large diameter and wire as small, but there is no definition.

    Here I'll use Cables for Electrics and Wire for Electronics. Although I intend to use the term cable, in using or refering to third party data cable may not be their preffered term. Further the term 'wiring' is used predominantly when installing electric power cables for buildings etc.

    The beginings of elctrical power system is the power source which, presently, in this case are three 250w photovoltaic panels connected in series giving around 110v with a max current of 9 amps. The array of panels is connected to an MPPT control unit by standard PV1-F 4 cabling that can carry 55 amps up to 60°C in open air.

    For more detail on PV1-F cables and temperture co-efficents see.

  • Have extended the cooper strip to a piece of copper pipe some 4 to 5 feet of which is burried in a shallow channel that is used for rain overflow, to help conduction. The copper strip can be seen @ https://unveiled.info/solect/cables-from-panels; the PV frames need to be connected to the top strip along the roof batten

    May 4th Finished, a bit roughly, joining the copper strip parts together and the strip to the ground pipe.
