Help with setting victory 712 bluetooth + Rocket 6v 210ah series and parallel

8b2ce421-a7fd-4750-95ca-a23c58b8308e.jpegHi,

Just got victron 712 and base on my understanding my class A have rocket in series then in parallel


I have two in series that gets them to 12 volts but that cuts your amps in half. Then those sets are in parallel which keeps the volts at 12 and doubles your AH rating. They start at 210 AH. So that means each battery set can produce 105 AH. Sooo i have 210 AH total.


what do i need to do in setting and configuration? I dont have solar or anything.


thanks

Series connections do NOT cut amps in half! It just adds volts together. Otherwise eventually you could theoretically reach a charged net state of 0 amps in a fully charged system and in a paralleled bank eventually reach 0 volts as well.

And electricity and physics would cease to exist (I think they call that "Donald Trumping Physics").

And trust me, if you reached out and touched that theoretical special series-parallel bank it would not be theory any more!

So....

Now recalculate....?
