Doing a full system install on a boat to consist of the following.
1. Multi 12/3000
3. Cerbo Gx
4. Digital Multi Control
5. Orion Smart Tr 12/12/30
system will have a lead acid starting bank and a lithium house bank.
there are two charging scenarios.
1. When underway the engine alternator will provide charge to the start lead acid battery. The Orion will bring charge to the lithium bank.
2. At the dock dedicated start bank Charger will charge lead acid and the Multi will charge the lithium.
1. How do I wire the Orion to allow charge when engine running but not when battery charger is running? IE the battery chargers are running why won’t the Orion see voltage and try to connect?
2. is there a way to wire in the Load Disconnect signal from the BMS so a shutdown of the Orion could be triggered during engine running charging?
was thinking of wiring the Load disconnect and a key on signal via relays to the remote plug on the Orion... anyone have any wisdom on exactly how to wire this to accomplish the above goals of allowing charge when engine running, stopping engine charge if needed, and not connecting the start/lithium banks when battery chargers are running?.
thanks in advance.
