what I missed in my new system?

Hi everyone

My system items below:

Multiplus

Isolation trans

CCGX

BlueSolar MPPT 150/70-tr

VE.Bus BMS

Victron energy 300ah battery smart


I know I need BMV-712 to monitor DC output power and VE MK3 interface to be system configuration and 1 VE.Direct cable to connect BMV-712 to CCGX.

Is anything I lost?


I am very disappointed with the expertise of the local dealers.


Thanks

Thank you for response. the mppt will connect to ccgx with utp cable via ve.can. Right?

I will try to draw a diagram.

I take a photo first.

I also have CCGX and VE.BMS and 2 x 327 Watt solar panels.

I won't buy less, if the local dealer is trustworthy.

Nice install!
Yes, you will need a standard UTP (Ethernet) cable to go from MPPT to CCGX. It should really be a blue one so that it looks nice with your install :) Don't forget the terminators (they should have been supplied with the MPPT).
If you have a chance to share a diagram, that will be good.

There are so many components in a stand alone power system 30-50!

Have you drawn a diagram? That can help a lot to determine what is required.

You will also need a VE.direct cable from MPPT to CCGX, and Ethernet cable from multi to CCGX.

You will need wire, lugs, fuses, it goes on!

Really the best way is to find someone locally who does have the training and experience for the first time.

Or start very small with just an MPPT, solar panel and battery and build up your own experience.
