How best should 5 x 3.5 US3000 Pylontech and 10kVA MP II connected?

Hello everyone.

I have an off-grid customer who did a DIY install of 5 x 3.5 US3000 Pylontech batteries and a 10kVA MP II. He used the Pylontech 2m battery cables to the inverter and correctly followed the Pylontech connection instructions. I however advised him to rather use a suitable busbar setup and cable rated well above the 120A of the supplied Pylontechs given the high rating of the charger. He started charging his batteries at the 140A 10kVA 48V MP-II capability, because the Pylons shows he can do 185A so he took it very literally.

I much stand by my advice, but will value a sanity check from any large system installers out there.

Thank you in advance.

Just use two sets of the 2m connection cables.

On the first and last battery should be a positive and negative terminal available for that.

Don't cut the cables or make them exactly to the same length as the other.

Thank you. Interestingly this was something he contemplated, but I was not sure.
