Hi @Mark Rolle,

yes you can. But take care and ensure that you don't exceed max. load capacity for the relay which is 60V/1A. You could use a low power relay (for example Optokoppler) in between to be on the safe side.

Stefani i have hooked up as i asked and it works with the 2 x mppt 150/70 nsmart but as soon as i plug in an orion it closes circuit to all when it was open....seems i will need the relay to work the orion input....thanks

Maybe you have still the bridge connected in the remote on/off on the Orion?

Not sure why it wont work but what does work is using the programable relay of one of the 150/70 to turn off orion at set voltage....thanks
