Load Shed Kit 6 – 24.00kWh System – Updated

R73,658.40

Components:

2 x Axpert – 5kVA – 4kW – Bi Directional Inverter Charger (8kW in total)

8 x 250Ah 12v Sonic Gel Batteries

Description

The 24kWh load shed kit is normal household operation. You can take out entire rooms, whole circuit breakers and if you are using power efficiently, you can take out your entire house.

Components:

2 x Axpert MKS 2 – 5kW – 4kW – Bi Directional Inverter Charger (10kW in total)

8 x 240Ah 12v Omnipower AGM/Gel Batteries

6 x 35mm Series Connectors (Batteries)

2 x 35mm Parallel Connectors (Batteries)

2 x Keto 125Ah Battery Fuse Breakers

2 x 2m x 35mm Battery Uptake Cables

Installation:

The inverter needs to be wired into a distribution board or a pre designated red circuit. A red circuit is a breaker on your distribution board that will have all your persistent (immune to power outage) loads connected to it. Naturally you can also wire in an extension lead type plug point but ideally this inverter should be a more permanent fixture.

Benefits/Drawbacks

The system has two large inverters(10kW)  and a decent battery capacity. The total expected operation of this system is 4800 watts per hour during load shed, anymore would not allow you to sustain a 2.5 hour load shed. You can of course easily add on an additional four batteries get the maximum benefit. That said, you can power quite a bit with 4800 watts.

In addition to this, the components used are full sub assemblies for solar systems. This means that should you want to go completely off grid, or lower you monthly energy bills, you merely need to add solar panels.

An additional benefit of the system is the inverter which as its own built in charger, thus the system is completely self sustaining and does not require management or user intervention. It automatically kicks in when load shedding starts and automatically charges the battery when load shedding ends. You would not notice a load shed for anything connected to that system.

Quality

The Axpert is the top sold inverter in the country. Its a hardy piece of equipment, looks great and good value for money. Should there be any problem on the inverter it has excellent local service and support. The batteries used here are the top performing AGM/Gel batteries on the market with the longest life span of all batteries in its class.
