EasySolar All-in-One

Using ATS between Grid & Generator at AC IN

Is it safe to use two inputs ( Grid and generator ) connected to an automatic transfer switch in this manner as shown in the image below ?
Does the easysolar II gx accept voltage that might not be stable coming from the generator ?

Easysolar 48/5000 Combining AC Outputs 16 10 10 Domestic 100A Fuseboard

I’m planning to connect 6 panels to an Easysolar 48/5000 with 2 PilonTech 48/3000’s. I will expand solar later.I have a 100a fused grid supply to my 100A MCB and Dual 32a RCD fuse board.

I would like a single connection to this existing setup from the Easysolar outputs.

Can I combine the 16a 10a 10a fused outputs to this single input fuse-board?
I don’t necessarily want to split 16a 10a 10a to the house diverse circuits.

I like the Easysolar as it simplifies the install cabling and control considerably.

I won’t be using the 16a grid only output.

Please advise if this 36a combined output is possible without issue.

Thanks very much

EasySolar 12/1600 Set Charge To 95% not voltage limit - MK3 Interface

Hi Everyone,

So I have already had help with my easysolar 12/1600 which is paired with a Lithium 300ah battery with built in Bluetooth BMS.

My issue is the charger constantly getting the battery to full charge, then turning off, the voltage drops as it isn’t being charged and then the charger kicks back in and repeating the cycle. This in turn means I can’t stop the lithium BMS from having cell over voltage protection kick in and when that happens it cuts power to the entire van for about a second. Is there a way to stop this?


I have been adjusting the parameters within ‘AC Input Control’ to get the charge from the AC input to stop charging at 14.1V instead of 14.4V and then come back on when battery percentage is at 85% but this cuts the power to the air conditioner on AC OUT 0.

Is there a way to set the ac input charge to stop charging at a battery percentage rather than a voltage as charge voltage is not representative of the battery full voltage.

I have also tried having the ‘AC Input Control’ off and under ‘Charger’ setting the absorption to 14.1V but this just meant the original issue of charge to 100% cut off, voltage drop, charge back on etc until the BMS freaked out, happened again.


am I missing something or do I just have to lower the absorption voltage to nearer 13.6v which is where the battery sits at 100% when not being charged?

Which assistant to use for Victron EasySolar 24/1600/40-16 MPPT 100/50

Hi,

I have a Victron EasySolar 24/1600/40-16 MPPT 100/50

I am looking for some guidance to select the correct Assistant and/or configuration options to use for the following scenario:

1. Solar Panel array 2 panels 335w rated

2. 24v battery (12+12)

3. Solar generates around 100-200w winter daytime (that's fine for my application)

4. Mains supply available. No supply to grid possible nor desired.

5. Load is around 120-150w mainly but bursts to 500w now and again.

Now I would like:

a) use solar to drive load and

b) use any solar excess charges batteries which store and discharge (at night)

c) mains used only towards load when solar low and battery low (but not to charge batteries).

d) no loss of power to load during any switching

I have looked at all the options, tried a few and nothing seems to suit. I have tried assistants and virtual switch. I presumed the above scenario is typical but maybe not.

7 Solar Panels into an EasySolar. Odd number of Panels

I have space for 7 x 40Voc 355W panels on my roof going into an Easysolar 5000 and 2 x Pylontech 48/3000 batteries

I can envisage only 6 panels connecting to the 150/100 MPPT at 80v or 120v configuration

If I want the 7th panelincluded, am I right in thinking that it would be best to reconfigure and buy a second Victron MPPT controller and configure 3 panels in series at 120v into the 150/100 MPPT and four in 2p2s configuration at 80v into a second MPPT controller link the two MPPT outputs into the batteries and both their controls into the GX controller?

Thank you in advance for any expertise offered on the above proposal and secondly the system design I am considering in general.

Kind regards

Battery Percentage Not reading correctly on EasySolar GX II

Hello,
After enabling the battery monitor from the VEConfigure,
the battery showed up on my screen however, the percentage which initially at 100% is only going down despite the battery being charged at times of the day.
The battery is showing that it is charging / discharging, the battery voltage changes as well up and down. However, the percentage never goes up, it only goes down while discharging.
Any idea on how to fix that please?

SEPLOS 48V 100AH Energy Storage Battery Compatibility?

I saw this video on YouTube. And thought their design not bad and Price acceptable. So I get connected with this supplier located in China. Called SEPLOS. It's a third-party manufacturing brand that not listed on Victron website.

Anyway, They told me that their packs could communicate with the Victron inverter. And they send me this picture of their pack and Victron inverter. Currently, I've got the Victron Quattro 48v 5000VA. And I'd like to have a try with their PUSUNG, which is a 48v 100ah pack.

ALWAYS USE FUSES ON YOUR SYSTEM >> ALWAYS<< BURNED MPPTS.

EDIT:


Sorry for long delay.

The MPPT's due bad / wrong connections went on fire.

First of all one of MPPT's were over loaded and once one of MPPT's goes on fire then 2nd got power of all panels ( !! 15 PANELS OF 250W !! )

Person who connected all panels and system did not put fuses and all on system as well.

PANELS WERE CONNECTED PARALEL + SERIES / MIXED SERIES.

System was just ticking bomb!

It was my plan to 'fix' connections across current system and make new lines but i got new wires and fuses two days after MPPT's broke. (i was waiting for supply few weeks)

[image]


Inverter is fine.

MPPT'S WERE OVER LOADED FOR OVER 2 YEARS.


Now i have made 5 new strings, 3 panels per string, Ordered 3 MPPT's 150/35 to get it sorted as should be.
Huge thanks to

EcoSolar (Also Repair Centre) from POLAND for quick response and getting me sorted with CORRECT HARDWARE.

EasySolar II better than EasySolar?

Hi,

I am looking to buy a 48/5000 system and I am trying to do an educated pick between the old (cheaper) version with Color Display and Breaker box and the new Easysolar II GX with no Color display and breaker box. A third option is to have Multiplus I or II and SmartSolar but it seems that total the price gets even worse. So, could someone elaborate on why I should buy the Second version over the 1st one? I still can not find the advantages in the product description.

Is it possible with EasySolar to give PV charging poriority over grid charging?

I am thinking about replacing and upgrading all the electric stuff in my 1997 mobile home.

I want to add photovoltaik and as the mobile home is also permanently connected to the grid (I am only visiting at the weekends) I am looking for a solution that is charging my batteries mainly from photovoltaik and only uses the grid for charging when there is not enough sun.

My compressor fridge is running all the time, so I need permanent power.

Is it possible with EasySolar (not yet sure which size I will take) to get this PV charging priority over grid charging so I do only have to pay for grid power when there is not enough sun to power my fridge while I am away over the weekdays.

Thanks for your help!

easy solar 12/1600/70-16 ladegerät error

ich habe das kombigerät victron easysolar 12/1600/70-16 MPPT 100/50 in meinem tinyhouse eingebaut.
das gerät ist mit einer 480 W solaranlage und einer 200 Ah LiFePo batterie von bulltron mit BMS gekoppelt. das victron gerät lädt die batterie tadellos über den solargenerator. den MPPT (es ist erstaunlicherweise ein blue smart verbaut - hm, prima!) habe ich mittels der victron app auf lithium batterie eingestellt. laden funktioniert!

der inverter arbeitet ebenso tadellos und liefert stressfreie 230 V.

jetzt kommt die fehlermeldung: das ladegerät lädt bei angeschlossenem 230 V landstrom die batterie mit knapp 50 A schnell wieder auf, auch dies funktioniert, der lüfter arbeitet hierbei (leider etwas zu laut für meinen geschmack). wenn die batterie 100% ladung erreicht hat schaltet der victron lader kurz ab, versucht aber sofort wieder zu laden. er baut knapp 30 A auf und schaltet danach auf error. das versucht er mehrmals, bis er dann komplett abschaltet. leider ist damit auch die 230 V landstromversorgung für heizung und kühlschrank unterbrochen. (das ladegerät kann ich leider mangels zugang nicht auf lithiumbatterie einstellen - vielleicht liegt da das problem)

Easysolar temp sensor/CCGX

Hi, doing my nut here.

I have an easysolar 24/1600/40 with ccgx.

Initial problem is that temp sensor supplied with it reads 4-5 degrees high. Searching here, I found that it's possible to correct in the superuser mode of the OS. I set superuser, but the sensor doesn't show up in the device list. And now I'm stuck in superuser mode. It won't let me out unless I enter passwords for user or user/installer. Password checks disabled, CCGX restarted. Can't find any way of resetting/clearing these passwords. Can't remember ever using them, but my memory is terrible, so take that with a big pinch of salt.


So two questions

How to get the sensor to show up?

How to get out of superuser?
