Anyone have Schematics for Apollo Solar TSW4048?

DoctedDocted Registered Users Posts: 8 ✭✭
I have a TSW4048 that just keeps cycling (5 second delay) and goes on for a split second and repeats.  Found 2 bad MOSFETS (obvious damage) but I need schematics to trouble shoot further.  Have been unsuccessful in reaching Apollo Solar for help.  Can anyone here help??
Thanks!

    They are out of business. One of my solar wrench buds knows a few things, I will try and get what he has during business next week.
    no guarantee!

    Probably the most in-expensive inverter/charger with all of the comms is the Schneider CSW 4048.

    I could be wrong but I think it is the only Inverter/charger that is 240/120 split phase that can run from a 120 or 240vac generator, has web based monitoring, and a 2 year warranty. Its data looks similar to the screen shot below and you can see your system anywhere there Internet. It also will be compatible with the Conext Bridge that will interface with the new Li-ion technology. Testing that now !
    Outback has a very nice offering Skybox soon, but not until early 2018. Below is a 24V XW and has the same data capability as the CSW 4048.
    not yet

    Really don't utilize the web monitoring.  Any inverters just 240 volt, 4K, 48V?

    The CSW 4048 is available either split phase or 230vac  only. They have them in the store here and I can get them also if you e-mail.

    Dave was originally pointing you to the sw4048 Schnieider, it's 3400 watt continuous and 4000 watt for 30 minutes. Should be good for most solar install as the Appollo. (pretty large system that will want to run 4000 watts continuous!)

    Sorry for giving the wrong specs, I was just copying them from NAWS web site!

    Close to New Jersey.  I mainly help homeowners in new construction get a successful offgrid power system along with all the other things listed on my webpage. I do this by text or e-mail but it is a "Kings ransom" for me to travel  :)  Kauai Hawaii is a discount though...

    My wife was a partner in a business in NJ that did solar work and your name was the same/similar to an electrician they used.

    It's a fairly common name. :)
