Hi @gprado,

The Quattro is an inverter / charger. It is able to take 2 AC inputs (eg a 240V AC mains grid, and a generator) and then convert them to the suitable battery charging voltage (eg 14.4 VDC).

Typically when people say Charge Controller, they are thinking something to manage solar panels. That is DC voltage.

The EasySolar range includes a solar charge controller, as well as an AC to battery charger.

Thanks Guy! Would I be able to connect two 5kVA easy solar in parallel to get to a 10kVA split voltage system? Could I also connect those to in parallel on the DC side to charge a 20 kWh lithium bank from a 8.8 kw solar system (28 panels of 315w)? Thanks again!
