Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

Yeah a changeover switch/relay is the way to go. Get an automatic one though otherwise you have to monitor for when power comes back on. I'm at the stage now where I'm looking to get one installed. Not going to do it myself as it involves touching the live mains pre-breaker. Let us know what you end...

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

TBH, that makes me want to avoid Goodwe inverters...but I don't have much experience with these yet. Just my Solax and Zever before that.

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

Double check that's not just an artefact of the inverter's reporting mechanism. My Solax shows similar spikes and overshoots: Solax Output.JPG However when I actually watch the batteries BMS (bluetooth) or the inverter display panel, I can see that it's not as generalised as my the reporting shows. ...

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

The sparky I got to install my inverter left me with a sticker pack with all the stickers that I need for the labelling on my system. Looks like it was just a generic battery storage pack. I've seen them from solar panels wholesale suppliers like one stop warehouse https://www.onestopwarehouse.com....

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

Sorry I didn't use sarcasm font. :lol: :lol: :lol: That's a relief, got me worried there for a min thinking I actually need to get my setup inspected by someone....not that it's in anyway non-compliant, but still. I'll be interested in what stickers you get and where from as I haven't done mine yet...

Re: jonescg's home battery storage system

Looking great mate. I recently did a similar thing when finally finishing off my powerwall...forgot to properly mount the BMU temp sensor and only realised after battening it all up. :roll: Will you be putting any labels on it? I haven't done mine yet, but according to AS_NZS_5139_2019 it needs a bu...

Re: low voltage battery cutoff options

I'm building a powerwall atm and like the look of this meter a lot. https://i.postimg.cc/TP4Zm9pH/DSC-6161.jpg My BMS has bluetooth, but the range isn't great and for the most part the useful info it provides is the same as this plus I would like to have the option of displaying it on the case.
