New version of watchpower for PIP inverters has been released
#11
Yeah their lack for "proper" response is sometimes a bit annoying. But they most likely have alot to do. They always answered when i was about to order a new device from them atleast Smile

Who is the person you guys talk to? Is it Peggy? I asked again a few days ago and she still didn't have any additional information. She keeps trying to push me to a 24v inverter or the 220v with a stepdown transformer (lol). I think I'm going to start looking at alternate solutions.

Yes mostly Peggy. They are "slippery" Smile I think they know more than they do. My tips is to take a look at Voltronic directly.
I think Voltronic had some 110v device up before but dont remember which one...

Yeah, already found some on there. Thanks Big Grin

She got back to me with a very simple response

Now I'm done waiting. It was "fall 2017" before, now it's "not anytime this year". I find it stupid that they sell a PCM60X where you need 48v to get the maximum wattage, then they tell you to either use a 24v battery bank or buy a 220-110v stepdown transformer for the inverter. They just lost my business.

Yeah but its common im afraid. Most chargers that do 48v only do half on 24 since its about the current going through.

But I agree. They have not focused fully on the US market as i understand and thats bad. Worst part is that the support/responses sometimes lack info and details. And as some others on facebook tend to say "Buy SMA...." Its true if you want that last feeling for support and good quality.

The only reason i go with them is that they are a bit cheaper and their stuff did match up with my stuff i got at home.

OT:
Yes im a "Smålänning". Smålänning is a Swedish word that states I'm from a specific area in Sweden. Smålänningar is known to not want to pay anything for stuff and when they sell stuff they sell it with highest possible price Big Grin

anyone who upgraded to the new watchpower version able to open up the logs fine? I updated and noticed i can no longer pull up logs. Might have to downgrade back to the old version.

No need, do you see a serial number of the inverter in the logs ? it's up the top of the page somewhere 
If not just load it over the top without uninstalling it'll fix it right up typically.

maybe just my computer then, yes i see the serial number, but when i click the browse button nothing pulled up. Downgraded to 1.09 and it works normally. Could also be my inverter, have the 2424LV, probably slightly different firmware than yours.

Not sure who actually makes watchpower but i found a newer version 1.11beta2 that fixed the data logging issue i was having with 1.10.  I got it from optisolars website.
