Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I see you're a Will Prowse person. His videos are good. Have watched them for a few years now.There is another option worth considering too: New: $1,739 48V SOK Server Rack LiFePO4 Offgrid Solar Battery - YouTube
Yep, saw those and the Jakiper as well. Seems like lots of good choices. I've been watching Prowse as well. I've been trying to find one of theseThere is another option worth considering too: New: $1,739 48V SOK Server Rack LiFePO4 Offgrid Solar Battery - YouTube
A MEP-802a makes really good, clean power and will have no issue driving an inverter/charger.My question is if any of you have experience good or bad with Magnum Energy inverters and also if any of you have had experience driving an inverter / charger with a MEP 802a. It is my belief that the power from these is very clean. I know that the Volts and Hz are very stable but I don't have a scope so I can't tell if my particular 802 is delivering a nice clean wave.
Thanks for any thoughts or experience you may have,
The MS4448PAE is evidently unobtanium these days. I've tried calling every number on the Sensata Technologies website and not one actual human yet. Still waiting.Buy whats in stock when you can.... especially if it involves circuit boards....
Pretty set on the magnum for a few reasons. Split phase input and output, reliability reputation, simplicity of system setup and wiring with the MMP, and ME-ARC configuration with no reliance on bluetooth devices etc.what is it that sold you on that magnum one? and... what solar charge controller are you looking at , or are you only looking for UPS /battery backup solution to grid power?
Yep, thanks NATCAD. I can find plenty of places that have had them for sale, but they are all on back order now, as I mentioned a couple posts ago.Looks like you can order that inverter bundled from midnite with alot of cool stuff, you can also buy it a la cart from the website kurt mentioned
Magnum's MS-PAE Series inverter/chargers are unique in providing two 120VAC output lines that are 180 degrees out of phase with each other.www.altestore.com
Yes Sir they have. Biden Bucks!!! They are on back order everywhere. Some distributors have said they have had orders in since November. Haven't yet been able to find out if the shortage is due to demand exceeding production capacity or component supply chain issues slowing/stopping production. Either way the price goes up.Prices have gone up on the MS4448PAE! Got mine last March for $1,686.
Thank you NATCAD. Where do you see that they're in stock? I see a bunch of retailers/wholesalers in the where to buy section of their website but nothing that confirms that they have them in stock. Their whole set up seems a bit procey too.midnight has them in stock, but you need to buy their whole set up ...
CorrectI sent you a pm on that.
Would you consider to include a solar charge controller at this time too?
Going back to your original post - you are looking for a solution when your grid power is not available, that you can run through night without starting generator, is that correct?
Found one!! Great price too. Got the 4448PAE, the interconnect panel, remote, BMK, and auto gen start module. Only things still on back order are the PT100 charge controller for solar and the back panel that the inverter and interconnect mount to. Very happy with the price. About 50 bucks over the price Kloppk mentioned. Also picked up qty 4 48v 100 Ah rack mount batteries. They had just received 9 of the inverters on the day I called. Got lucky.Yep, thanks NATCAD. I can find plenty of places that have had them for sale, but they are all on back order now, as I mentioned a couple posts ago.
