Was that rail spacing intended ?

Yes? I am not sure what you are asking.

I was pondering compliance with the manufacturers clamping zones recommendations, along with a slight personal  OCD aesthetic issue.

Ah I gotcha. Yea the clamping zone are missed on the upper row on the right side of the roof. I have one extra panel and inspected it. I didn't see any extra support or rigidity added in those areas, so I think its going to be ok. I feel you on the the aesthetic issue though. It's not perfect, but they are mounted and working, finally.

Solar is installed. Power shed is complete. All
Packs within 4.05v and 4.1v. Only thing left is scheduling the power company and my electrician to pull the meter and connect the ATS to the meter and main load panel. So close...

Looking forward to updates as you tweak your system and the performance of the ATS and custom battery packs.
Can you pass along a link to the pouches that you Used? I don’t recall seeing a link in the thread.

Thanks

They have severa pack sizes as well. However if I were to do it all over, I would use Nissan Leaf modules since they are so cheap now.

So I was completed on Friday 4/26 and been running on battery since. However, during the ATS testing, its not quite fast enough to be uninterrupted for some devices. So I bought some 450VA UPS power strips to help with the transfer. Luckily BestBuy had them on sale for $45 and I bought 6 of them. So far I have been able to recoup most energy during the day. I only go down to roughly 70% by the next morning.

I did catch one snafu today. Packs 30-42 were not in balance with the rest of the fleet. I put a laser thermometer on the pack links and found pack 30 negative to be 10deg F higher then ambient. The bus bar was very loose. So I tightened that up and now its all balancing out properly. I am not sure how I missed that during the pack build and the fleet install, but its solved now.
