Smart Battery Protect compatible with Cruise2.0 outboard and SWAC?

Dear Victron Community,


I've read that a Smart Battery Protect shall not be used inline with inductive loads like 230V inverters. This raised concerns about using Smart Battery Protect for electric motors and compressors.


I'd like to use a SBP-100 to drive a Torqeedo Cruise 2.0 24V 2kW outboard (relay operation only, added benefit of bluetooth control) and a SBP-65 to drive a seawater airconditioner (HFL coolmax 24V 22A).


What are your thoughts on feasibility and longlevity of these approaches?

EDIT: Cruise 2.0 manual recommends a 125A fuse. Cruise 2.0 cable set ships with a CF8 135A fuse. So how about a SBP-220?

the reason for not using it on the inverter chargers is that a inverter charger is a load and a charger. the BP units are one direction only, so using it as you are suggesting is fine, as long as its used for loads and NOT for charging
