Having just ordered the Cerbo and working on replacing my lead batteries with lithium I want to exploit the Cerbo's features as much as possible.
So the setup in my boat is as follows
no-name 75A alternator
Argo Fet 3-200 1. lithium bank 200-400ah. 2. starter battery lead-acid. 3. bow anchor windlass battery lead-acid
victron 75-15 mppt with one 100watts panel
victron 1200/50 inverter/charger (latest model)
712 battery monitor
And once it arrives the cerbo
Now i intend to connect the 712 and MPPT with VE.direct and the inverter/charger with VE.bus
First question: Is the VE.bus rj45 cable a standard ethernet cable or is there a special pinout listed somewhere?
Second question: With everything connected to the cerbo can i configure the inverter/charger to charge lithium batteries?
Third question: with all this tied together can the inverter/charger use the battery temp sensor from the 712 instead of its own battery temp sensor?
fourth question: Can a battery temp sensor connected to the cerbo be fitted to the negative or plus pole on the alternator to monitor the alternator chassis temp and can i set a certain temp to trigger one of the relay ports? (starting a cooling fan)
