Wire 2 Orion DC-DC Converters in Parallel

I see in the manual for my Orions that up to 5 units can be wired in parallel. I'd like to put two units (70 amps each) in parallel. Can someone look at my wiring plan and let me know if this is correct? Thanks for the help!

In this senerio you show 24 to 12 volt units. this would not work as you show a 12 volt battery and a 24 volt inverter these units do not work the opposite way


you would need to step up not step down


ie 12/24 volts and even then it would depend on the inverters inrush current when turned on as to weather you would exceed current limits. plus the size of the inverter
