Mppt 100/30 installation wiring


I have an older Morningstar pro star 30 and want to replace with a new mppt 100/30. The old prostar has solar, battery and load wiring.
The 100/30 seems to only have solar and battery wiring.

What do I do with the load wires ?

It would seem sensible to connect the load to the batteries, either directly for a 12v system or through a inverter of your choosing.

I have the same MPPT and it does not have a load terminal. I agree that you can run any loads of the battery bank, via fuses, off bus bars. I think the smaller Victron MPPTs have a load terminal.
