Someone please answer. Pylontech US2000 2.4KWh + Phoenix 1600/2000 Smart + Venus GX

This is my second attempt at getting an answer. No one answered the first time...

With a single 2.4KWh Pylontech US2000 Module and Venus GX will the Phoenix 1600/2000 Smart work?

I have read the manuals of the Phoenix 1600/2000 Smart which seems to suggest two modules would be required by the minimum recommended battery size (Section 4.2). Phoenix 1600 (75Ah-200Ah). Phoenix 2000 (100Ah - 250Ah).

However at the following link:

The Battery peak discharge watt rating in section 2 (Minimum Battery Sizing Recommendations) seems to suggest that one module would do it.

Of course I am speaking about 48V versions of all related equipment.

I have a further question on this topic,

Is the "phoenix smart" series of inverters compatible with the pylontech bms system?

In section 1.3 of this page, it says Ve.bus inverters are compatible. does this mean ve.direct inverters are incompatible?

Hi @SparkPoint Solar. It will work, but the limitation is on the Pylontech side. The 2.4kwh battery supports a max continuous discharge current of 25A, which translates into roughly 1.2kw DC power. So if your loads are going to exceed that, you’ll need an extra battery.
