This thread is about technical troubleshooting.
Often it's the little things that get you. Things, not obvious in the manual, or subtle changes youve made to one component, that affects something else down the line....
Perhaps sharing your problem solving triumphs, where a not so obvious detail was discovered, may help others.
I'll start as this discovery happened yesterday!
I connected my 4 x 327W Solar
paneld about 2 months ago... Breakers before and after MMPT terminating at 24v House bank.
put out 42 Amps @ 24v but Victron Smart meter was not reading input in Amps.
Ok, realized Shunt was beside negative Bus Bar so shifted Neg Solar cable to Negative Busbar , kept positive at Battery
Meter now worked but output and reading accuracy between Outback/ and Victron smart meter was not good.
Yesterday I mounted the Victron Shunt down beside the house bank, per diagram and moved Neg Solar Cable back to batteries
as I wanted to have Solar charging
and Victron smart meter reading even if I made all the other 24v Bus a dead ship via Main Battery
Meter would not read solar input!?? Only when switch was on and still not accurate!
Finaly realised that my Neg Grounding was at Neg Bus Bar, and my 24v Master Switch was a 4 pole Switch (originally I had 2 separate banks for 2 Pos Lines, now Switched for both Neg and Pos. WHICH I HAD FORGOTTEN ABOUT!
So bypassed Neg side (always on) and it still did not read Solar Charge, only Victron Multi load/demand. ?? ?
Back to Manual and found nothing..... then.....Eureka!.... Solar Neg had to also be connected to Victron Shunt LOAD SIDE to read properly.
Now I see within 0.2amps the same Charge Values on Outback (slightly higher due to less line loss) but Smart Meter and my own DC Amp meter now measure exactly same data, going in and out of battery!.
This was probably obvious to many, but for me, a small triumph in the details!
