New version of watchpower for PIP inverters has been released
#1
So new version - seems faster on my old computer. Doesn't look much different and can't find any info on changes. But I'll test and see how it goes.

You can download it from the MPPSolar site - http://www.mppsolar.com/manual/Watchpowe...indows.zip
You can also download the user manual here - http://www.mppsolar.com/manual/Watchpowe...manual.pdf

All other software and manuals from http://www.mppsolar.com/manual/

I'm using MPP Solar Patrol, just because the logging is really good with it's own built in webserver. I also like the way I can set up an email address and get it to email me the days stats automatically.

I'm still sitting here waiting for them to get their 120v US inverters out... They told me they would be coming fall 2017.

Great program used it for quit a while, stable, USB & rs232 support, great built-in timer to turn on and off inverter

GREAT dashboard buggy as all get out. Don't think it is supported anymore, can't find the download link.

New model coming or something?  I already have one of  their 120v models.  Got it last September.

They have 24v inverters for US. They do not have 48v. I need 48v.

so i noticed a difference between this new version and the old. On the old one the PV input, power, and charging current would disappear when solar charging switched off at night. The new one keeps these up which is handy so i can see AC charging current now.
