Can someone post on here or on Youtube, a configuration video for this charge controller. I ordered one based on "Old Time Engineer" and "My PlayHouse" using it. however I have not seen any configuration videos.

Thanks

Try here: http://www.mppsolar.com/manual/

Followed through this thread: https://secondlifestorage.com/t-New-version-of-watchpower-for-PIP-inverters-has-been-released

The charger controller you have looks like a PCM clone. So the software could probably work.

Can you post a link to the videos where you saw this unit being used?

And have you tried the software that not2bme posted?

Here are the YouTube Videos that reference the eSmart3

My PlayHouse:
he starts talking about the eSmart3 at around 18:15

Old Time Engineer:

I placed an order for the eSmart3 with AliExpress based on the above YouTubers, so it should be here in a year or two.

LOL yeah! :p

That's a small unit. My Playhouse video he's holding it in one hand. Must weigh about 10lbs max!
I don't see how that unit can do 2000W output. That transformer is tiny (altho, I suppose for being a charge controller only, it might be ok)


After watching those, the only thing I noticed was that My Playhouse had issues with connecting the USB/RS485 to windows 10. Are you able to get it to detect and load properly? No Yellow exclamation in Device Manage, right?

I have the software in an email somewhere but it wont let me forward it. I havent used it yet either. Im still charging lead acids with it yet. I had the 40A version but I let out some magic smoke by not turning off the panel breaker before disconnecting the battery. Now i have the 60A WiFi version. Both were great!!


Not sure if this will work or not.

Also you mentioned you 'plug into a router or laptop'. It's a RS485 cable, so if it didn't come with a cable you need to purchase it. It's not a ethernet cable.

I finally got my unit plugged in and testing. Had to search for this article for the link to the software :angel:


Btw, the password is 'mpptsolar' for the software. Had to search the internet for that!
