The team at Bimble Solar are excellent nothing is too much trouble for them,however I cannot say the same for the company that delivers their panels!
I have been a customer of Bimble Solar for around 10 years. My farm is off grid, so I am totally reliant on my outback system performing reliably. Even the most robust systems suffer with problems and Bimble have always managed to source me the parts or replacements in double quick time to ensure minimum disruption. I purchased a replacement inverter many months ago and did not have time to commission the unit. When I eventually found the time to commission the new inverter, I was faced with a very challenging situation, as the new VFXR unit I purchased was not compatible with my existing stacked VFX 3048E system. I contacted Anthony at Bimble to see what my options were as my system is a stack of 3 units and replacing the full system was not really a viable option for me. Bimble went above and beyond what could ordinarily have been expected and tracked down a brand new VFX3048E unit from somewhere in Europe, arranging for it to be delivered and exchange for my incorrectly purchased VFXR3048E unit. All I can say, is that it is a truly outstanding way to deal with customers and they will always retain my custom whilst providing such a high level of customer service.
Fantastic customer service. Always the best quality products at reasonable prices. Delivery was bang on time. A great company all around.

The full bridge plus toroidal transformer topology has proven its reliability over many years. The inverters are short circuit proof and protected against overheating, whether due to overload or high ambient temperature. High start-up power Needed to start loads such as power converters for LED lamps, halogen lamps or electric tools. ECO mode When in ECO mode, the inverter will switch to standby when the load decreases below a preset value (min load: 15W). Once in standby the inverter will switch on for a short period (adjustable, default: every 2,5 seconds). If the load exceeds a preset level, the inverter will remain on.
A remote on/off switch can be connected to a two pole connector, or between battery plus and the left hand contact of the two pole connector
