I've a set up consists of:
- 24V Battery
- Victron Smart Solar 100V-30Amp, fused and directly attached to the Battery
- Victron Battery Protect 24V-100Amp, fused and directly attached to the Battery
I operate the Battery Protect with default settings and only use it as remote "on/off" switch. Therefore I connected pin 2-1 of the two-pole connector with a battery plus connected switch. Everything seems working properly until I noticed that I had connected the switch not directly to battery plus but with plus behind the Battery Protect's "out".
This made me think because, in my opinion, the Battery Protect should disconnect the output completely when switching to "off", but the remaining voltage is enough to turn it back "on" when using the switch again. Nevertheless, I measured (with Battery Protect set to "off") approx. 1.6 volt between Battery Protect's "out" and battery minus.
Wiring errors can be ruled out (I disconnected everything except the set up mentioned above). I also couldn't find any reference in the manual about remaining voltage after switching the Battery Protect to "off". Is the Battery Protect working properly?
