For large off-grid solar photovoltaic systems, the 48V battery-based system is the right solution because the current rating for the same power is reduced and smaller cables are required. 12V and 24V find more use in small systems up to 3000Watt.
Voltacon’s range of inverters consists of 5 models each one serves specific applications. Before you buy any 48V, 5kW inverter with integrated battery charger, it is very important to answer the following question. It eliminates the risk to invest in the wrong item that does not perform correctly with your solar panels.
|Inverter Model||V5||VM III||S6||Max||S2|
|PV Input Volts||145V||500V||500V||500V||145V|
|Max PV Charge||80A||80A||80A||2x 80A||2X 60A|
|Solar PV Watt||4500W||5000W||4500W||2x 4000W||2x 3000w|
|Parallel (up to 6)||Yes||No||Yes||Yes||No|
|Max Charge Volts||63V||61V||63V||63V||58.4V|
|BMS – Lithium-Ion||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
The key electrical specification of Conversol 5kW & 7.2kw off-grid inverter with 48V battery-based system. The table works as a user guide before you buy a solar inverter.

The Conversol’s V5, S6, S2 all offer you the ability to expand and add up 6 inverters in parallel. Mix and max is not allowed. An inverter will communicate in parallel only with an identical inverter. It is not possible to connect in parallel a V5 with an S6 for example.
If the photovoltaic panels are separated into two groups each one facing a different orientation or the angle of inclination differs between the two PV arrays, it is important to select the Conversol S2 or Conversol MAX
If the cables of the photovoltaic arrays are installed far from the solar inverter, then an inverter with MPPT voltage range is necessary to cover the voltage drop and resistance losses in the cables. The 120-450Vdc inverters work well within the MPPT window even when the distance is over 100 meters. For long cable runs, the cross-section is a minimum of 10mm
Flooded lead-acid batteries (OPzV and OpzS) due to the chemical consistency and valve-regulated tubular plate structure, require higher equalization voltage at 62-63V. The Conversol V5, MKS-III and Max are the right inverters for flooded batteries.
The entire range of inverters is now compatible with the BMS protocol of lithium-ion batteries, including the new Li-2021, US2000, DLG, and other brands with RS485 compatible communication port.
