Marine Electrical Engineer Consultant Needed

I've decided to make the switch to Lithium but have absorbed as much as I can and need a pro to help me design my system and guide my discussions with my local vendors/installers. I am in a small market with limited talent and could use an advisor. If there are any guns for hire out there who can point to a serious body of work/ experience with Mastervolt (that's all that's available here and that's mostly what I have) and are interested in some remote work - please reach out to me.

agree way to go, he is good. mastervolt is gonna be pretty expensive for what you actually get, worst for money in the high quality brands in my opinion. relocate boat for retrofit or just ship everything in. victron is avaliable in hong kong too.

I would sugguest victron over mastervolt. should be available everywhere.

Victron allows people to dial in remotely to check on everything and set everything up.

Check out "Attainable Adventure Cruising." Between that site and "Marine How To" you will find well thought out best practices.

Your system is home made. And you hacked the software. You created your own problems.

I remote into my clients setups all the time.

Where do i hacked into software?
I have a simple, basic and standard setup BMV712, 3x MPPTs, 1 Multi, 1 Phönix Smart 1/1/50 all connected via VE to cerbo.
Super basic, BMV712 as bat monitor delivering the battery data...DVCC not working, cannot share voltage or limit current.
And thats the victron reference diagram for the victron VE Bus BMS that has it exactly wired like i have it with BP220 cutting the chargebus https://www.victronenergy.com/upload...istributor.pdf
That was sent by mvader from victron how to wire it and stated to enable DVCC and Voltage share. And exactly that i did as i was told and also here the BMV712 delivers the battery data to Venus OS, exactly like i have it too. Ve-bus BMS is not connected to Venus OS.
The VE Bus BMS works exactly like ElectrodacusBMS with steering via the remotes and was developed with support from Electrodacus founder Dacian Todeo. Same the Victron smart BMS. But that has nothing to do as the BMS is completely seperate and not interfering in any way with the victron installation.

I connect it now to a lead battery with BMV712, 1 Mppt and multi + cerbo...no DVCC and no voltage share working. Again absolute standard victron config.
