MPPT Smartsolar 75 Load control with older Quattro Inverter


Hi,


I have recently purchased the Smar tsolar MPPT 75/15 with built in Bluetooth. The app and integration with Smart temperature sensor is excellent.


I would like to use the load output to control an older Quattro 24/8000 that has a remote on/off connection as described here.


Top PCB left side half way up Connector H Quattro remote control Connector for remote switch: Short left and middle terminal to switch “on”. Short right and middle terminal to switch to “charger only”.


Do I need to purchase the # VE.Direct non inverting remote on-off cable Part number ASS030550310.. I was also thinking this could be controlled with a 24v DC relay powered from the load output of the MPPT? Anyone done something similar?

Thanks in advance for any help, Nic

It can indeed be done in the way you describe, What the Quattro need is something that makes or breaks a connection, like a switch or a relay.
