I have a multiplus 24/3000. 400AH @24V lithium battery bank. I want to heat hot water when on shore power and also when battery is close to full. Heating element 1500W. (it is in a heat exchanger that is heated by bus hot water too). I am looking at powering hot water off multiplus the AC2 circuit. Looking to use the generator assistant to control the AC2 outlet
*)Use ACOut2 relay to start generator
*)’open relay to start generator' - this inverts the logic
(start generator = open relay to turn off ACOut2)
*)’start generator when load higher than 5000 W for 5 seconds’ -and
Open ACOut2 when load higher than 2400W for 10 seconds
Turn off hot water when load higher than 2400W for 10 seconds
'stop generator when load is lower than 1800 W' -
Close ACOut2 when load is lower than 1800W
Turn on the hot water when load is lower than 1800W for 10 seconds
*)’Start generator when DC input voltage is lower than 26.5 volt' -
Open ACOut2 when DC input voltage is lower 26.4
Turn off hot water when voltage is lower than 26.4 will have to experiment with this to get about the SOC I want especially with voltage sag.
*)’stop generator when DC input voltage is higher than 26.61 volt' -
Close ACOut2 when the DC voltage is above 26.61
Heat hot water when the voltage is above 26.61
*)When the generator is started must stay on for a least 10 seconds
When ACOut2 is Open and the hot water system is off must stay off for 5 minutes longer.
*)The generator is not stopped by AC input
I am not sure about this command, I assume it applies to the assistant as a whole, that is not effected by inverted logic with the start/stop, but will allow the assistant to run or remain in its current state even if AC input is active. That is I have shore power.
