I have an existing system that consists of:
- 1 Multiplus Compact 12/2000/120
- 1 BlueSolar MPPT 100/30
- 2 Battle Born GC2 100 AH batteries (parallel connected)
- Raspberry PI running Venus OS
- custom, manual inverter pre-charge circuit
I'm wondering if there is any advantage to replacing the batteries with Victron Smart Lithiums, and if so which BMS would be appropriate.
I've read that the VE.Bus BMS prevents inverter control from Venus. Is the same true with the Lynx BMS?
I believe the VE.Bus BMS will shut down the Multi (charge and inverter) but I believe it will NOT shut down the MPPT. Correct? So that means I'd need a battery protect for both load and the MPPT. Correct?
Lynx BMS documentation hints that it will control both the Multi and MPPT and can disconnect the loads so no battery protects would be needed. Correct?
