Charging BYD 48V batteries with a 48V alternator

Is there any Victron products available that will allow a 48v alternator as an alternate generation source to an existing 48v Victron off grid system and connect to the BYD CAN BMS?

Hi @nrre

Best to use 'allow to charge' contact of BYD BMS connected to the alternator's charge controller.

@nre We have completed several projects with our 48V alternator, alternator controller which is CANbus and compatible with both Cerbo GX and BYD. Look on our website...
