Question about Electronics - Others

The batteries on my narrow boat ran low and the inverter appears to have cut out. We have recharged the batteries but there is still no power output. The inverter is live because there is a low power warning light flashing. Does anyone have any suggestions? Tony G

It's quite possible that you are charging your batteries with a "smart charger." The problem with some smart chargers is that when a battery is drained below a certain voltage, the charger assumes the battery is a lost cause and stops trying to charge it. You may have to get a cheap "dumb" charger to bring the batteries up to a reasonable voltage before turning things back over to the smart charger.

Batteries won't charge with shore power and generator, have checked fuses. Inverter works until batteries get to low.


not knowing model number its impossible for me to determine if your inverter has a battery charger , not all do some require a external one , most charge off aux engine alternator this same engine also makes compressed air and hydraulic power for controls and steering , mid size boats use one engine for all this plus main drive , larger ones use a separate engine for these functions (safer)

ERROR E03 WHATS IS MEAN ON MY CONVERTER 600 WATTS ELIMINATOR


Hi, here is the error codes that I could find for you, it seems you are overloading the inverter. That means you cannot connect a kettle or other heavy load to the output. See all error codes below, hoep this helps.

Problem: The AC load will not operate, error code shows on digital
display and alarm is sounding.
Error Possible Cause Solution
E01 Low voltage shutdown because battery is discharged.
Recharge battery. Shorten cables or use heavier cables.
E02 Over-voltage shutdown because of high input voltage.
Verify the charging system is properly regulated and the battery
is 12 V nominal.
E03 The AC product(s) connected are rated at more than the
inverter's continuous power rating; overload shutdown has
occurred. Use a product with a power rating within the inverter's continuous power rating (see Table 3).
E04 The inverter has overheated due to poor ventilation.
Overheating shutdown has occurred.Turn inverter off and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Clear blocked fan or remove objects covering unit. Move the inverter to a cooler place. Reduce load if continuous
operation is required.
E05 The AC products connected have a surge power that exceeds
the Digital Inverter's surge capability or the AC products connected are short-circuited and shutdown has occurred.The products exceed the inverter's surge capability. Use a product with a starting surge power within the Digital Inverter's capability.

GE LP33 UPS inverter failed to start


Dear Yared,

Did you try to give the UPS some time to recharge the batteries?
Seems like the batteries have reached their cut-off voltage and are not supplying enough voltage to the inverter.

Normally the dc boos circuit of the UPS will supply voltage to the DC BUS so maybe the problem can be found in the dc boost circuit or BUS if recharging the batteries is not helping.

Let me know.

Best Regards,


Ron

Sounds like you have a lot of equipment on your boat, cool. But you need to think about the load you are putting on the battery. If you don't have a way to charge the battery back up, you just keep getting the power lower and lower the more you play. Also, with that much draw, it probably doesn't take long before you experience this. Unless your engine is internal and has an alternator to it to recharge the electrical system. This will keep happening. A couple of choices you can make. Either downgrade your system to something that has less draw (definitely ditch the 1000w amp and sub), or you can put more batteries in your boat. Kinetik makes great audio batteries, but regardless of how many you put in your boat, there has to be a way to recharge them. You will probably need to recharge the battery after every use. Hope this helps

I buy a new power inverter ERP 2300 12v/220Volts


What does the inverter over 600 Watt.
By what type of battery is the inverter supplied? How many Ah? What is its state?

In order to achieve 1000 Watt for 1 hour you need a fully charged 12 V / 100 Ah lead-acid battery.
If your battery is less then 100 Ah and is not very well charged or old (bad) you may not have over 600 W, but not bacause of the inverter, but the battery.

If your inverter stops due to low input voltage (you can see it in the digital display during operation).

If you want to check the real output power of the inverter you should connect it to a big (more than 200 Ah) well charged battery.

Cuts out


15 minutes is a reasonable time for a low cost RC boat. Is it cutting out because of low battery voltage?

Inverter output voltage (eg. 96 volts) not if this is an issue


96 volts is low. 106 volts is low. You need to be about 110 to 120 volts optimum. How is your battery input? This is crucial for the inverter to output correctly. If it needs 24 volts DC in Then make sure it's 24 volts. 48 volts means 48 volts. Check the battery voltage and compare to inverter input requirements first.

Will only work with 1.5V battery output instead of 1.2V


How old are the rechargeables? Also, am assuming you are using NiMH and not the inferior low-power NiCads. Rechargeables NiMH really aren't meant to last more than a year or two, regardless of how often they were recharged. If the batteries are older than a year, suggest trying a new set.
