Multiplus 2 DC Bus voltage measurement inaccurate

Hi Everyone,

I have a Multiplus 2 48/5000 with Pylontech batteries and a Cerbo GX.

The DC Bus voltage that the Multiplus is displaying seems to be about 2 Volts too high even when there is no charging taking place.

I understand Ohm’s Law and how this affects voltage readings.

I’ve verified the voltage readings both at the DC terminals of the Multi and at the batteries with two different DMM’s and this indicates that the Multi is reading the DC Voltage inaccurately.

I’ve checked all connections are clean and firmly secured.

The inaccuracy seems to continue to increase over time.

I’ve heard that returning the Multi to the dealer for recalibration is one option (not sure if it’s correct) and I wanted to ask the community if adding a smart shunt would be a better long term fix?

When you are measuring, is it when there are no loads and no charging? So an idle system.

Does it affect how the battery is charged?

Yes that’s correct.

It affects how the battery is charged in that it won’t fully charge unless I increase the charge voltage to account for the discrepancy.

If all the firmware is up to date a d youbare not happy then i would advise taking it in or returning it.

Guy is away, and what you need is to contact your supplier for support, there is little here the community can assist you with and you have been given some good advice, so I would suggest the unit is returned for testing, if you have eliminated everything else as a cause.

There is nothing you nor a dealer can calibrate.

Thanks Nick.
