Bimble were happy to answer pre-purchase questions, check my basket for completeness and compatibility and offer a little assistance after purchase. Although the delivery charges were not cheap, the panel arrived undamaged. Compare it to furniture delivery prices and it's not that bad really. The kit on arrival was fine and worked as soon as I connected everything up. Not often that happens!
Wonderful customer service (I had a lot of questions!) and great prices based on all the research I had done for my campervan build. Would use them again, in fact I already plan to.
Excellent quality products and service as usual.
Off-Grid solar inverter with MPPT charge controller, 4kW solar, 5kW inverter
The Inverter RS Smart Solar 48/6000 is a 48V 6kVA Inverter with 450VDC 4kWp PV input. It is used in off-grid solar applications where AC power is required. Combination of an inverter, bi-directional DC-DC converter and MPPT The inverter produces a perfect sine wave, able to supply high powered appliances. It is supplied by a bi-directional DC-DC converter, that can either charge the battery when excess solar power is available or convert from the battery when it is needed.
Wide MPPT voltage range 80 – 450VDC, with a 120VDC PV startup voltage.
Light weight, efficient and quiet Thanks to high frequency technology and a new design this powerful inverter weighs only 11kg. In addition to this it has an excellent efficiency, low standby power, and a very quiet operation.
Display and Bluetooth The display reads battery, inverter and solar charge controller parameters. The same parameters can be accessed with a smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled device. In addition, Bluetooth can be used to set up the system and to change settings with VictronConnect.
Support for AC and DC coupled PV battery charging The Inverter RS supports the connection of AC coupled PV inverters on the AC output up to 6kVA, and a total battery charging capacity of up to 100A. Frequency Shift Power Control is enabled out of the box, without the need for configuration, reducing installation time. VE.Can and VE.Direct port For connection to a GX device for system monitoring, data logging, and remote firmware updates.
Built in PV isolator Both parallel PV strings connected to the MC4 plugs can be safely isolated with the large built-in switch on the bottom of the unit. I/O Connections Programmable Relay, temperature sensor and voltage sensor connections. The remote input can also be configured to accept the Victron MiniBMS.
*Please note this unit cannot accept an engine driven generator directly but a generator could be incorporated using a Victron Skylla-TG charger*
