MN3548DIY Idle current
« on: November 03, 2021, 06:40:13 PM »
What is the no load idle current or power consumption of the MN3548DIY ?

I cannot seem to find it in the manual but I have been known to miss the obvious at times.   8)

It's in there....:)

I got the deluxe kit, it had a solar cell and a meter.

Maybe I'm not understanding the question or reply or the manual, but I thought that was saying less than 50 watt load is where the 3548DIY is in power saving mode. I'm not sure 50 watts is the idle consumption, but I could be wrong.

Measured the idle current on a 3548DIY. 40 watts. In power save mode it's under 2 watts. Once a minute or so it wakes up for a second or two and pulls around 10 watts, then back to sleep/power save.

I wonder if that once every 1 minute (or so)  is adjustable somewhere ?   

Once per minute is an eternity compared to the typical search mode interval for an inverter

40W is kind of high but certainly better than 240 watts for the Mpp LV 6048 inverter !!

The MN3024DIY
On no load 37-40W
Standby 20-22W
When charging (inverter off)
At low PV input 38V DIY reads 1.5A out BMS reads 1.7A input
At high PV input 50V DIY reads 15A out BMS reads 11A input
Either I have something set wrong or the DIY uses a lot of power for the controller at high output
Thank you

All,

Set up my MN3024 and I can confirm that the idle draw is 38w.
