Yes it may be the Mac part as that's what i use, maybe google
to find it?
Initially i just used the solar
with a Lithium programmed regulator
, then after a while i went into my Dolphin charger and chose a scenario that had no float etc.
I've now installed two latched relays so i can choose whether the charge comes from either the solar
or the alternators off main engines (i only use them to bring to 80% charge) or Dolphin 80 amp battery
charger to 100%.
I did this so i could self monitor
watching the current
and the stored amps and deciding which source to use, default is the solar as the GSL MPPT
only brings charge to 14.60 max however as the boat has constant loads max charge has sat around 14.10.
The only time i see cells with different voltages is when the cells are at peak but as soon as a load comes on they all jump to within .02 of a volt and if a serious load they go to exactly the same, a serious load being an inverter
drawing 100amps for a pot of coffee.
Terry and Dave pretty well nails the situation by simply observing the state of the batteries and allowing the cells to cycle during the night i.e. SOLAR.
i'm now fitting two, two two pole momentery switches connected to each cell so i can check cells 1/2/3/4 whenever i like watching for imbalance.
The experts can pull me apart but you somehow have to move on from fuses
I cannot get into the debates regarding Fluke meters, types of fuses
and disasterous scenarios that some believe is inherent with this technology but i gotta say i felt so good depositing the gas producing lead acids by the dumpster......
