Panasonic HIT panels /MPPT controller

I have 3 Panasonic 325w HIT PV panels I am installing on our sail boat. It says on them that the open circuit Voltage VOC is 70.9

ISC 5.94A

Imp 5.50A

VMP 59.2

Question is can I run the panels in parallel in to a single Victron 150/100 MPPTcontroller or do I have to go to the 250 model.

Any help appreciated!

Parallel should be no problem.

You would *not* be able to use them in series.

I have the same panels (4 of them). I have them running 2x2 in parallel-parallel, into a pair of 100/30 controllers and they’re working great.

If you parallel 3 of them into one controller, be sure to fuse each panel independently with ~10-15amp fuse.

Thank you very much. Most helpful! Will ensure each panel is fused.
