Re: Sumry Inverter-Charger in Caravan

Thanks Terry, That makes more sense. At first I thought RVD was a typo, C being next to V, but I thought RCD's don't work with floating neutral. I understand that with an MEN but no earth stake, like a vehicle on the road, you are not pulling neutral down to earth but instead pulling the chassis UP ...

Re: Is anyone using an arc welder with an offgrid system

Thanks Dave,
I was hoping to connect this way, just wanted to check someone else had done it first before I let the smoke out.

Re: Is anyone using an arc welder with an offgrid system

Hi Doggy, I was impressed with your report and ordered the same unit from Bit Deals for my caravan. The unit has happily performed all of my work bench tests and I am ready to install it into the van. I'm curious if you were able to connect an earth neutral bond or if you made do with the floating n...

Re: EOI - New Yinlong LTO cells Australia

There are many battery types with better energy density such as LFP and NMC but the trade off is much shorter life expectancy.

Re: Is anyone using an arc welder with an offgrid system

We have an offgrid system using 22s8p LTO cells and a 12kw Low Frequency Transformer inverter from Sacolar: http://sacolar.com/products/info_8_itemid_18.html

We are able to run compressors, welders, radial arm saw and power saws, haven't found anything yet that gives us trouble.

EOI - New Yinlong LTO cells Australia

I have been approached to distribute new Yinglong LTO cells in Australia. Apparently Yinlong were having some internal troubles last year, to continue trading they were dismantling pre-assambled battery packs and selling these cells cheaply, these are the cells most of us have been playing with.

Thanks Weber, That has cleared up a few holes and fuzzy spots in my understanding. I remembered reading that the Giant Power units were approved and mis-understood the full meaning of this.

EV Run to Canberra AGM 2009

Has anyone considered the F&P motors for building portable generators? 300V from a push bike powered generator, a small petrol/diesel/bio-diesel motor should offer something usable.

Dude, if you have front to rear speed variations, then you're either ripping your car apart or compressing it. There are no front to rear speed variations for the rest of us. The variances are minute but if not addressed can produce a lot of understeer, particularly in wet/slippery conditions. Jord...
