Any Off-Grid VFX3524 and (old) Mate systems?

Postby JeffinthePeace on Sun Dec 30, 2018 8:58 am

Hi All -
I’m looking to connect (group?) with folks that have a system similar to mine, to compare system performance, and in particular battery charging/equalizing performance.
Anyone?
Please reach out!
Thanks
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
We have a VFX3024E and an FM60 on a 620ah GEL 24V battery bank (12x2V).
Not sure if we can provide assistance with FLA systems.
Cheers,
Sandy

A pic of my humble system.
We’re hoping to add another charger and more PV this spring.
