Epever Tracer 40a mppt


when fitting this controller do I need to input any parameters? We now have 3x140ah lithiums ready to install.

 

TIA

BAS

Hi Bas,  I have a Epever Triron as one of my controllers but they are similar.  Remember that you have to set the battery voltage if using LiFePO4 and you have to set the parameters under User.  Page 18 of the manual Shows all the settings.

The easiest way I found is to buy the Bluetooth module and download the EPever app to your phone.  In that you can just choose LiFePO4 and it is automatically set.

Will keep a lookout if you have any more questions.

Tim

It would seem they are not selling the bluetooth module anymore, why? It is being replaced by a all in one mppt. Did Aussie know this? They don'y seem to have your controller anymore either.

No seems just a change in technology as they have a new module.  The black one are the new ones.

Hi I noticed on Facebook these were being advertised for a good price for 40A and a brand I have used.

Solar Charge Controller 40A MPPT Lead-acid Battery Solar Panel Controller LCD. EPever 40A.
AU $119.99

https://www.vevor.com.au/mppt-solar-charge-controller-c_10732/solar-charge-controller-40a-mppt-lead-acid-battery-solar-panel-controller-lcd-p_010254325216?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=dynamic%20ads&ad%20id=23852562412330496&fbclid=IwAR3g6RA7wWVXKBWxX5R9yb5-5k53ReagkzhJUW6-0mVJ7Tv54yNSTSjo_50&v_tag=90a79a30-857e-11ed-b60b-0b5bdd849f18.1

They do not have a straight lithium profile but suit LA batteries. I need another one and have purchased one ! I am happy with the other older one I have.

Possibly they are selling them out as an older model but suits me OK. I do not worry about bluetooth BS. Got better things to worry about.

PS the manual is here and you can see it is by EPever: https://d2v0huudrf11kh.cloudfront.net/vevor-center-goods/solarchargecontrollermanual_1656571677279.pdf

There is no mention in the manual of EMC approvals: would one of you guys be good enough to take a look at the labels on the unit and tell me which approvals it has please?

Thanks for that.

It has 61000-6-3 which is the generic emissions standard so, hopefully, will not cause interference to my Amateur Radio.
