    Need some help - GTIL SUN inverter limiter wiring

    Just pay attention, this sensor measures in mA and not mV - GTIL has a builtin resistor.

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    I bought this charger over a year ago, but only now I started to test it... I'm still in the process of building a 14s (18650) - so I just made a small test-setup with a 14s2p, just to try. I did try to set the float voltage about 3v lower than the charge voltage, but I think the charger stay in...

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    (y) glad to help and thank you for bringing this up - I also learned a lot about this charger! I would like to know how to set the battery correct when using Lithium - I have a 48v 14s but I don't know how to set this so the charger don't go in 'float-mode' - do you know?

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    Nice! - so we have: 1. PV Voltage 3300 = AA01000203040100E40C5B 2. BAT Voltage 1666 = AA010002030403008206C1 and need: 3. Charge Current 2090 = AA010002030405002A0815 4. Load Current 2200 = AA010002030407009808A5 5. Load Voltage 1666 = AA010002030409008206BB that should be it, I hope :)

    I made the table by myself. google this: mppt solar controller communication protocol

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    Now I think, to set the 3300 the HEX code would be: AA01000203040100E40C5B Because: AA0100020304 and then 0100 for wPvVoltRatio and E4 0C is 3300 (just reverse 0CE4 is 3300) If you try this, it's on your own risk - please don't blame me if something goes wrong... ;)

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    now I have the checksum, it's very simple: AA 01 00 02 03 04 03 00 6C 06 D7 D7=(0-(0xAA+0x01+0x00+0x02+0x03+0x04+0x03+0x00+0x6C+0x06))&0xFF; C code if anybody needs it:

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    if this: AA 01 00 02 03 04 03 00 6C 06 D7 is 1644. then you have to change the 9th and the 11th - meaning the 6C and D7 if you add one to 6C then you have to subtract one from D7 ie. 6D and D6 (1645) and 6E and D5 1634 62 E1 1635 63 E0 1636 64 DF 1637 65 DE 1638 66 DD 1639 67...

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    did you try with the 'reset / bug' code? AA010002030407007E04C3 just to get some standard values in the 5 fields and then try with the AA010002030403008206C1 to set your voltage https://secondlifestorage.com/index.php?threads/esmart3-nuissances.6195/page-3 #41 It would be nice if...

    Hepl me ! charger mppt eSmart3 40a "Factory application options"

    ok, did you also look at #30 - there is a link to a file and in that file there is a document called SolutionsEN.doc - here they write a hex code, looks like a 'reset' code. #41 'rcuetara' show hexcodes for the voltage. So if: AA010002030403006C06D7 is 1644 then: AA010002030403008206C1 would...

    Hi, look at #10 here: https://secondlifestorage.com/index.php?threads/esmart3-nuissances.6195/ I also have this charger. What is the ideal settings for a 14s lithium battery, do you know?

    Limiter inverter with RS485 load setting

    Hi, I just saw this other version: https://de.aliexpress.com/item/1005002783194883.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.30be44bffK4hrV&algo_pvid=416848c2-43c0-4ec8-8f5f-c0b970339db4&algo_exp_id=416848c2-43c0-4ec8-8f5f-c0b970339db4-32 No display, but a 'USB TTL' port - it looks like the dongle use an...

    Limiter inverter with RS485 load setting

    The board is basically 4x this project: https://learn.openenergymonitor.org/electricity-monitoring/ct-sensors/how-to-build-an-arduino-energy-monitor-measuring-current-only?redirected=true It's necessary to add a voltage meter from each fase to calculate the Watt. The SOYO expect a (RS485) /...

    Limiter inverter with RS485 load setting

    If you connect a battery, then in the menu - you set it to battery mode and then battery start Volt, battery off Volt and the amount of Watt you want to take from your battery and add to the grid. I am currently playing around with an Arduino / ESP8266 - then it will be possible to add some...

    Limiter inverter with RS485 load setting

    Today I connected the powermeter/limiter to an RS485 -> USB to serial converter on Windows and made quick and 'dirty' C# app. It reads the data and shows the watt in the console. I just want to share this code in case someone can use it to get startet or something like that. This...

    Limiter inverter with RS485 load setting

    This is a reply to your previous post. The idea is good as long as we don't have a smart meter! I'm in Germany too and we still have the old meter with a disc. I looked at the 4 Channel module and it looks good, it collects the values from the 4 inputs and returns the mV (watt) or a int value...

    30 Pcks 13S10P 30Ah Need Help for BMS

    I would say that a fuse on the red wires should be small, like milliamps - because you only want to allow a small current for equalizing. I don't know this exactly. This is the boards I was talking about: In this video he shows his trace-fuses. The cells are in series and he has a SMD fuse...
