CMS 2000 Inverter Replacement & Warranty Sydney
CMS 2000 was a popular transformerless grid interactive inverter marketed by Carbon Management Systems.
In comparison to other inverters being produced in Asia at the time, the CMS2000 performed relatively well, had next to no dead-on-arrival failures, and performed flawlessly in many cases for beyond 5 years.
Unfortunately, there are still a certain percentage of failures with any product, and certainly it would seem there have been more in recent months. Worse still, due to an overly generous (previous) warranty program and some crazy promises (paying a topup feedin tariff to new customers from company funds), the company previously called Carbon Management Solutions has gone out of business. Apparently the newly formed Carbon Management Solutions Group is not responsible for the previous warranty issues of CMS, yet this business is clearly happy to take any new business derived from the fame of the previous company. The government really should do something about this type of practice.
Inverter Swapout or repair?
In some cases, it is possible to fix the fault, depending on the actual fault. Where the unit is fixed, you are looking at potentially $120 service call to determine the fault, approximately $150 to have it fixed, and further service call $120 to replace it (total $390 inc GST). You may like to repair where space is an issue, or if you shortly won’t be using the property or system again (for example, if a renovation is planned in within 2 years).
For long term users, we suggest replacing this unit with:
- Solar Energy Australia SEA 2kW Orion (exact match for physical dimensions); OR
- PowerOne Aurora Outdoor.
