Charge Peak Power Pack PPP-40 with Orion-TR Smart 12/12-30 via high-current output

The Orion delivers an output current of 30 A.
The PPP manual gives different values for the maximum charging current (40 A and 20 A): What maximum charging current is now permanently permitted?
Do I risk damaging/destroying the PPP with a charging current of 30 A?
Additional question: can the maximum charging current be set for the Orion?

Peak Power Pack PPP-40 mit Orion-TR Smart 12/12-30 über Hochstromausgang laden

das Orion liefert einen Ausgangsstrom von 30 A.

Im Manual vom PPP sind unterschiedliche Werte für den maximalen Ladestrom angegeben (40 A und 20 A):

Welcher maximale Ladestrom ist jetzt dauerhaft erlaubt?

Riskiere ich mit 30 A Ladestrom eine Beschädigung/Zerstörung des PPP?
Zusatzfrage: lässt sich beim Orion der maximale Ladestrom einstellen?

Manual PPP Seite1

Schnelles Aufladen über Eingang 1 möglich (Hochstrom-Ausgang)

An den Hochstrom-Ausgang kann zum schnellen Laden ein

Batterieladegerät oder ein Wechselrichter/Ladegerät angeschlossen

werden. Der maximale Ladestrom beträgt 40 A und die absolute

maximale Spannung beträgt 14 V (eine höhere Ladespannung kann

die Lithium-Ionen-Zellen bei einem Ungleichgewicht der Zellenladung


Manual PPP Seite 17

Ausgang 1: Hochstromausgang

Max. Eingangs- (Ladestrom) 20 A (nicht geschützt).

Peak Power Pack and SmartShunt: can I tie all grounds together?

I would like to track the state of charge of my Peak Power Pack, something which is sorely lacking (for the price I kind of expected something like this to be included, actually!). The difficulty is the different current paths, I have the charger connected, the car/solar connector is also connected, and of course the load is connected to the "mover" output. Can I tie all the "minus" connections together (charger, car/solar, load, and possibly even ground), connect this to a smartshunt, and then connect the smartshunt to the PPP? In other words: the minus of the charger adapter, the car and the load are connected to the load side of the shunt, and the other side of the shunt is connected to the mover output minus of the PPP.

Supported VE.Direct Commands/Register for the Peak Power Packs

I try to get as much information as possible from a Peak Power Pack. What I see is a different behaviour than what's documented. E.g. "VE.Direct-Protocol-3.32.pdf" states in the Introduction: "On power up, a VE.Direct interface will always be in Text-mode, and continuously transmits
all run-time fields. As soon as it receives a valid HEX-message,..." But I've never seen any text message from my Peak Power Pack. I use the software from to read Peak Power Pack with a USB cable. But I only get the main_voltage and the temperature right now. And a message I can't find any documentation:

Parsing data from main_voltage [ED8D] = 13.530

Parsing data from temp [EDEC] = 313.000


So where can I find specific information about how to "talk" to a Peak Power Pack. I need to know if it's charged and the SOC (I know that's a hard question).

Peak Power Pack stellt nach gewisser Zeit automatisch ab (Hochleistungsmodus ein)

Hallo Zusammen

Ich habe das Peak Power Pack 20Ah 12V und wenn ich den Hochleistungsmodus, welcher nach Anleitung nach 2s Knopfdrücken immer eingeschaltet sein müsste aktiviere, habe ich in der Nacht das Problem dass das Power Pack dennoch nach gewisser Zeit ausschaltet. (Angehängt ist eine Standheizung mit max 2.4 A --> Theoretisch müsste die Batterie 8.33 Stunden halten. Jedoch war es bei aufgeladener Batterie und an den Strom via Netzteil angeschlossen dennoch bereits nach wenigen (3-4) Stunden der Fall, dass das Power Pack ausgeschaltet hat und sich danach mehrere Minuten nicht mehr aktivieren liess. Das Power Pack ist Brandneu.

Mache ich etwas falsch? Ist es eine versteckte Funktion? Vielen Dank für Ideen, Hilfen, Tipps :)

Solar Capacity Clarification


I currently oversee an off grid PV/Diesel hybrid system that consists of x15 10KVA/48 Victron Quattros, 150kW PV array, 700kWh FLA battery bank and a 200KVA Diesel generator. I have had solar companies tell me that the system is at solar capacity and no more PV power can be added.

In my mind additional solar can be added with the only caveat being that if generated PV power exceeded the sum of 150KVA charging capacity AND the loads then the inverters would be throttled down and the system would be "wasting" PV power.

Currently looking to expand the system and move away from running the generator every night. Daily consumption is around 1100kWh with peak load being 70kW.

Any insights/advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

Site Survey etc

Can I use a Cerbo GX , EM112 to monitor site power consumption. I am looking for a way to get Data onto VRM, without Victron Inverter Chargers etc, to help specify Victron equipment.. I would then have continuous data and would be able to demonstrate to customer that " I can get you 200A from an 80A supply " !

"car/solar" connector type of the Peak Power Pack ?


If anyone could tell me what is the name of the plug/connector type model I would be much happier person :-)

I did check documentation also looked at different connector types and could not find a simple thing - what is the connector type model. I also can't find Victron cable that is meant for this port.

Here is the photo of the port itself:

Expand Victron Smart 12.8/200Ah LiFeP04 House Bank

Our flooded lead acid house bank is at end-of-life. I would like to start a new 12V bank with 1 or 2 new Victron Smart 12.8/200Ah model BAT512120610, then expand it up to 6 over the course of six months to a year (for a total of 1200Ah) if this is possible.

At the time of capacity expansion, if:
1) all existing batteries are wired in the Posts style (see diagram below); AND
2) the existing bank is fully charged; AND
3) the new battery is also fully charged (via separate IP65); AND
4) voltage is identical on the existing bank and the new battery prior to connection,

is there any reason why this plan would not work?

I understand that the ideal is to have ALL the batteries exactly the same age and SOC from the very beginning, but this isn't always the case.

Battery choice - guidance requested

So I have a small travel trailer with limited space for a battery. Have a Victron Solar controller and SmartShunt but looking for a better capacity battery than the cheap one that it came with. Draw is a handful of LED lights, USB ports etc - no need for large current draw but capacity and lifespan are king

The current battery box is 280x175x244mm so want to look for something that sits inside the same footprint

I am looking at the BAT412110081 AGM Super Cycle or the BAT412600104 Deep Cycle Gel as the two that will fit.

Which would people recommend as the better choice and which has the larger capacity?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Can you put the PPP in storage mode with the victronconnect app?

We store our PPP in our house during the wintertime (normally it's in our RV). I'd like to charge it full now and wan't to put it in storage mode afterwards. Is that possible with the app or do I have to buy a second "button" to do it the way i can do it in the RV?

PPP40 Crashes

PPP40 with BT dongle keeps crashing. It read temperature of -150 Celcius, then +50 C, then the high and low power alternate in on/off in the app and in real life both are on while unit is in standby. Unit has been in hybernation for 3 months until today when I wanted to use it for powering a satphone charger. Just a few seconds ago anothet message popped up. "Short circuit". But nothing is connected but the BT dongle.

What is the waranty on a PPP40? Is it 2 years because it is a battery or 5 years because it is more than a battery? Also the shop I purchased doesnt believe they can do anything because the product is 2 years old. But Victron only deals with dealers, how will I get waranty if I am still entitled?

I can do electronic repairs but would hate to void existing waranty.

Many thanks
