Scalable system

I'm planning to build three vans with the same system on each.

The system on each van will be:

- 24v Battery

- Multiplus / Quattro 24/3000

- And maybe, an mppt, a BMV and a Venus GX


My question is, there is a way so I could connect and reconfigure the settings of the systems to work together so 3 multis on single phase o 3 multis in three phase?

My big concern is about monitoring the batteries.

If I use the battery monitor on each multiplus they can run each one on its battery or they have to run both with the same battery and use a BMV?

There is a way so each multiplus is working with its battery but connected with the other multiplus? Each multiplus can take care of its own battery?

I asume that this is not possible with a Venus and three BMV or three Venus connected together, sharing data, no?

Thanks

As for the Venus I already know that. My big concern is about battery monitoring. Any idea on how this can be done?

I'm afraid what you want to do is not possible.
When you have a three phase or parallel system the units work as one and show up on a single Venus device as one unit. You can only have one Venus device in a system.
Besides only being able to have one battery monitor in a system, you cannot have each MultiPlus on its own battery when configured as a three phase or parallel system.
