Anybody knows about this company or other chinese inverters manufacturers. MUST offers only one year warranty.
But the price are fair I think
Plse let me know
Hi Gi Solar you have been there for 6 yrs?
255W Canadian Solar × 12, 200AH 48V US 185 XC2 bank, Victron Bluesolar MPPT 150/85, Victron CCGX, Victron MultiPlus 48V/5kVA/70A inverter (primary system) Victron Phoenix 48V/375VA inverter (backup for critical loads)
300W Yingli × 2, Midnite Brat, 200AH 24V bank (powers DC LED security lights)
there is also e web site "suppliersblacklist.com" this will give you some idea of Chinese factories.After working there for nearly 6 years - there are not many "real" factories.They are mostly giant assembly plants - and MUST is one of them
hi i both one pv4000 it last 16 months the control board is completly corroded try to get to bay a new control board but they can not dilliver one very bad service very bad
I'm now in the need of an offgrid 24V/AC230V inverter mostly to run my small fridge (120W), but also occasionally running my power tool (2000W circular saw, 29A inrush current at start) and I would also like to be able to arc welding.
I've been able to measure the circular saw inrush current at start, but have no idea how I could get inrush current from the arc welder. I've been told that small new type inverter arc welder would have an inrush current limiter included, but better to be sure before choosing my inverter.
So could you share your experience has you've been using lots of inverter and also been arc welding ?
It seem that these low frequency inverter can absorb high inrush current, but also have higher idle current draw that high frequency ones ?
Yeah, I heard of this brand, it's popular in China. I also heard of it from my neighbour down the street too. Well from what he said I can't really recommend that you purchase yourself them. In the end game, I wouldn't recommend most things from China. He constantly had to change the batteries for them, never-ending repairs etc. So not so long ago I came across his lands while walking down the street, I noticed he changed the panels to a good pair of 100 Watt Solar Panels https://solarhub.energy/10-best-100-watt-solar-panels/ They were Monocrystalline solar panels. These panels are the high efficient products of the market (18-25%). He is definitely living a happy life moneywise that's for sure. No more repairs now. I'm actually quite used to seeing them around now. Just my thoughts, figured I might have helped.
The only made in China inverter that is worth using is the Cotek, a Tiawanese company, that has their own factory in China. Many others have Cotek build units for them, including Samlex America, and Vanner, an ambulance/fire truck specialist outfit. I have an Cotek SK-1500 that I have been using for 5 years with no issues at all. Recently bought an Cotek SD-1500-124HW from Wind-Sun and very pleased with it. I will be buying a Cotek SD 2000-148 HW model for my next installation. These inverters are stackable in series or parallel configuration and even in a multi-master N+1 installation......N+1=15.......wow!.....in a $600 dollar inverter....unheard of. Even MagnaSine and outback do not do multimaster N+1 configurations, only Exeltech does...Wind-Sun does sell these but they need to be drop shipped from manufacturer. I have spoken with tech support in Tiawan and got very good information from them, unlike any Chinese manufacture of electronics gear. I have installed 6 Cotek units so far and never an issue. Good quality Chinese electronics are rare!
Dont understand N+1 configuration......in a nutshell let's say you need 4 kW no matter what happens even a inverter failure. you use 3 each 2kw inverters in a N+1=3 installation, any unit can fail and the system will use the other 2, any unit can be "master" in the N+1 multi-master configuration! Every system startup a different inverter is "master" so all inverters have equal run time. Hey Outback, ,MagnaSine,& MidNite. peek at this one....totally groundbreaking
MidNite has not released all the info on the B-17 hot swappable inverter but I would it bet does have that N+1 configuration capability, I haven't heard a word about N+1 multi master but boB and crew probably have that in the works.
I guess for me the only caveat to the Cotek SD series for me (and i did look at this brand when i was purchasing) is that it is only UL 458 and not UL 1741 or 1741 sa, so it is not suited for in home installations IMHO.
My inspectors have no problems with UL 458 for strictly off grid installations, on grid tied or if grid is present ,they do require UL 1741 but then again the last line in the NEC "when in dought refer to the AHJ" The "authority having jurisdiction".......the inspector...it's about how they interpret the NEC The NEC is a building code.......vehicles and boats are not "buildings" and the NEC does not apply. There are different standards for that
18 month warranty, chinese 😁
