Looking for others who own a Advanced Energy Inc. mm3000 or mm5000
inverters.
I'm in need of the software for the mm3000. I dont know if the
software is the same as 5000 inverter. If you own one of these
advanced iverters please e-mail me. Will supply u with others who own
one so we can share info.
thanks steve

Hi If you are still looking for this I have 2 versions on this, first is
the Beacon Power PC-200 the other is the is the Advanced energy DOS
version MM102M only works on windows 98, lets you change any Value you
want. Both versions work with the MM5000 MM3000 M4 M5.
thanks Lou H

 I could use the software. I got a 3000 and a 5000. Needing documentation of
 its operations and specs as well. I'll attach the email that I've been sen
ding around trying to get answers to some of my questions.  




I have recently purchased three AE multimode power conversion system invert
ers New from Old Stock. I only have an installation manual for a 5000 and i
t shows most of the specs it doesn't say much about it operations. I'm curi
ous what the specs are on the AE3000 that I have.  One of them is the 5000.

I have lots of questions and I hope they don't overwhelm you.  
If there is more literature on this for me to read please connect me and re
frain from answering the questions until I Read Literature and delete the q
uestions the literature answers.  If you have time just answer what you can
 & I thank you in advance.  Maybe I should forward this to BP?

    I'll be using them in off grid mode 4 the foreseeable future. I've noti
ced some people complain that the mppt midnight classic 150 charge controll
ers on sunny days when in float charge mode are slow to respond when there'
s a heavy load put on the inverter. So the load will work off of the batter
ies for up to 30 seconds before the charge controller will send the energy  
from the solar panels through the system.  It seems unnecessary to me to dr
ain the batteries when there's 5000 watts of PV unharvested butt available  
power.
   How will the AE inverters handle this situation?

     How fast and how often does the AE mppt charge controller to a sweep?

   How many watts is the charge controller on the 3000?

   What is the voltage range on the input from solar panels on the 3000?

    Will the charge controller charge the battery from PV input while the i
nverter is simultaneously providing AC120 power?
    
    If the charge controller is bringing in high or max wattage from the so
lar panels and rapidly charging batteries will the AC output capability be  
adversely affected?

    The 5000 manual says it's mppt technology gathers 15% more energy from  
the panels. How does that percentage compared with today's mppt Technologie
s?

    Will the BP software work with the AE units?    if yes will I need some
 kind of software key for it to work?

    What are the out of the box factory set points and parameters, like wha
t is the bulk charge and Float charge voltage settings, how often will it e
qualize?

    Will they perform an equalization cycle off of the generator input?

    How many watts of power will the 3000 and the 5000 consume while invert
ing with almost no AC loads?

    Does an efficiency curve chart for these units exist?

     Does it have a sleep mode that senses there's no need for AC power and
 shut down the AC output in an effort to conserve battery power?

   I looked inside and saw it has some pretty heavy-duty old school Transfo
rmers.  I'm thinking it might be a heavy hearty old Beast like my 30 year o
ld car battery charger That Never Dies. What are the benefits and drawbacks
 of these old AE inverters?

    On the 3000 inverters AC power out what is the surge specs?

    What type of overload protection does it have?  Only overheat protectio
n? Or over LOAD sensing shutdown as well?

In the event of an overload overheating shutdown what is the likelihood of  
damage when compared to modern day units?

    I'd like to hook the generator to the generator input for cloudy day ba
ttery charging.  But the installation manual said something about possibly  
needing a microcontroller firmware upgrade before having generator compatib
ility. What does this mean for me and if I need this firmware upgrade where
 can I find it? How do I identify whether or not mine has the upgrade?

    If I hook a small 1000 watt generator to the inverters generator input  
will it not overload the generator and consume only 1000 Watts from the gen
erator?    If yes is it easy to switch to a differently rated generator whe
n desired?  Must it be manually programed to the generators specs?
    
    I have a 4000 Watt Schneider context inverter that claims upon proper u
ser configuration it intelligently simultaneously charges the batteries and
 passes the generators output directly through to the load and it even help
s boost  the wattage when there is a heavy surge  that would have otherwise
 overloaded the generator.   I am assuming the AE won't directly pass throu
gh  and won't boost the generators output. Will the AE inverters do this?  
Or is this inverters generator input for charging only?

   On the AE 3000 and 5000 what are common problems and or things that I sh
ould be aware of?   Are there any preventative measures I can take to allow
 the unit to last longer aside from the normal?

   Thank you again for your consideration. Like I said I feel like I'm a in
 the dark  not knowing how these inverters are going to handle different si
tuations.   I won't be needing to hook them up for a few months

 Were you able to get the software you're looking for?
