Mounting Your Solar Panels (Guide and Examples)

Solar Panel Mounting Info & Guides:

Our kits do NOT come with mounting hardware, they come with high quality solar panels that are pre-drilled and ready to be mounted by their strong aluminium frames.

Feel free to request a spec sheet on your specific solar panels and we can provide this for you.

Average solar panel dimensions are: 65 inches x 39 inches and 1.5 inches thick.

*This is about 5.5 feet tall by 3.25 ft feet wide.

Grounding Your CSK Solar Kit (Guides & Examples)

We do NOT provide grounding wires or grounding rods. This is your responsibility and will require a trip to your local hardware store.

You will need to source the proper grounding wire and rods for your system that meet your local codes and requirements.

Here's more information on how to ground your solar system:

How To's & Troubleshooting

LV6048 (Grey or White) Setup Guide

Here is a PDF guide of the manual --> Click here

When setting up your inverter, it will be important to set the parameters properly based on the battery that you have with your system.

Please go through and switch the settings to the parameters below:

For your LV6048 Inverter, go to settings by pressing and holding for 3 sec the enter button, Navigate to the following settings and change to the following parameters:

For Batteries KONG ELITE, KONG, HSKY, TREX & GRILA

• Settings 05: Battery Type - USE (User-define)
• Settings 02: Max Charging Current - 90A
• Settings 11: Max Utility Charging Current - 40A
• Settings 26: Bulk Charging Voltage - 58.4V
• Settings 27: Float Charging Voltage - 58.0V
• Settings 29: Low DC Voltage Cut-off - 48.0V

The max input voltage of the charge controller in your unit is from 90V - 230V. This means that you need AT LEAST 90V going into the unit to register a charge. What is super cool about the LV6548 with the huge charge controller is that you can get roughly 8000 watt into the unit.

If you have added more panels, or have them set-up incorrectly, it can cause your system to shut down and restart. Setting 6 is designed so that in the event of an overload, the system shuts off and reboots. This is a friendly reminder that it is important to follow the diagram instructions provided, or make sure to stay within the input voltage of the unit. You can find the diagram instructions below depending on the kit you ordered.

• Settings 13: Max Utility Charging Current - 40A
• Settings 17: Bulk Charging Voltage - 58.4V
• Settings 18: Float Charging Voltage - 58.0V
• Settings 19: Low DC Voltage Cut-off - 48.0V

The max input voltage of the charge controller in your unit is from 120V - 430V. This means that you need AT LEAST 120V going into the unit to register a charge.

If you have added more panels, or have them set-up incorrectly, it can cause your system to shut down and restart. Setting 7 works so that in the event of an overload, the system shuts off and reboots. This is just a friendly reminder to follow the diagram instructions, or make sure to stay within the input voltage of the unit.
