Victron BPP Wrong voltage


I have a Victron Blue Power Panel and a V.E.Net Battery controller on the house bank for a year now.

I have a Morningstar TS-60 MPPT solar charge controller connected to the House bank. I have the Morningstar remote meter connected to show the voltage of the house bank and the amps coming in.

Both were connected on the same day the new system was energised !

Things have been working flawlessly for a year. Both the MorningStar and BPP have shown the identical voltage of the house bank.

NOW (after about 17 months)... The BPP is showing a reading of 2 volts lower.

The Morningstar voltage and a multi-tester check, show the Morningstar is correct.

The connections are all good and shiny at the bus bars.

Why would the BPP have a reading 2v lower difference ?

Could the V.E.Net Battery Controller cause this ? It seems odd !!!

My clamp on amp tester confirms the BPP is displaying correct amp readings, and in sync with the Morningstar display when everything else is off.

Re: Victron BPP Wrong voltage

Here is a picture showing the voltage of the Morningstar that is accurate, and the Victron BPP voltage. The charging amps of the BPP is exact !

Things are a bit dusty as we have taken off all the old varnish from the teak in the V-birth and get ready to make it fresh and new again !!
