Launch of the Lynx DC Distribution documentation manual - Feedback needed

Hello Community,

I have just published the Lynx DC distribution manual

https://www.victronenergy.com/live/dc_distribution

I would appreciate any feedback, suggestions for how it could be made better or clearer, or any questions you have that it doesn't answer.

Thanks, Guy

Hi @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager) You refer to 22mm diameter entry points. Can you clarity if it is 22mm square or 4AWG or 5mm diameter? Regards Etienne

I wanted to add that we have been successfully using this 'Batteries on the Right' configuration with our Ve.Can shunt.

It required swapping the Red and White fuse sense wires on the top fuse holder.
It also required swapping the Orange, Green and Black wires on the shunt (to properly report the now reversed flow).

We've been using this configuration for almost 2 years now.

Very nice!

I will add it to the manual, thanks.

Guy,


I noticed the manual is very centric for Victron batteries. I have battle born batteries and notice I'm not getting SOC from my Lynx Shunt. I've posted in other threads here and working through deep dishcharge and recharge but don't have a whole lot of hope for this. Can you add something about how to debug the shunt better?


Thanks!

Hi Guy,

Sorry for the lack of responses over the last six or so months. We have been sailing our catamaran THOR around the South Pacific and are now getting ourselves organised again as we are back in Australia and have some cost-effective data plans on our mobile.

Thanks to @Mark@lowlec, @Michael Riley, for their patience, persistence and (potentially unintentional) contribution.
