Best settings - getting confused

I have completed my install of


  • MPPT 100/30 controlling 2 -170 watt panels wired in series
  • BMV-712
  • And 4 Victron 6V/240Ah AGM Deep Cycle BAT406225084


My problem is figuring out the best settings on the MPPT and BVM. In all my reading I am more confused, much less the fact on the MPPT there are two options for the Victron deep discharge and an AMG. Not to mention on the BVM things like Peukert, charge efficiency, ect.


I just spent a lot of money on all of this and want to get the most out of it and the best battery life.

Murry,
I am running a 12 volt system sorry for not listing that.
Also I should have mentioned I have the Smart Battery Sense unit.

When looking at the Victron page for the battery spec I only saw a few things listed where as the MPPT and BVM have a lot of other variables not listed.

Thank you for your input

Are you running a 12v or 24v system? As far as the MPPT, your best bet is to set it according to the battery spec sheet, and include the temperature deviation settings. Let me know
