It's good to see the Orion Smart series officially announced on the blog today:
But while it's usually shown set up to use input from a vehicle start battery to charge an auxiliary bank, I want to do the reverse. In my case there would be two alternators on the same 450hp boat diesel feeding a 440ah Firefly AGM 12v house bank with the Orion Smart 12/12-30 supplying the smaller Dekka AGM 12v starting bank. That way I'd get more use from the alternators, plus alternator redundancy, and the system would be ready if I ever switch the house bank up to Lithium-Ion.
Am I thinking straight?
PS The boat already has BMV712/Smart Solar/Venus system that I greatly appreciate:
How will Orion eventually integrate with the family?
