Shunts and Ground

Postby nautiqueskier on Mon May 06, 2019 11:03 pm

Hi there,

Need some assistance wiring a FlexNet. I have three shunts. My understanding is with shunts I will no longer ground the battery negative (ie. battery side of shunt) as that would effectively bypass the shunts.

Can the Outback Inverter and Outback FLEXmax Charge Controllers use a common ground even if they are on separate shunts?

Shunt A) Inverter (AC Circuits)
Shunt B) DC Circuits
Shunt C) Charge Controllers. I will be installing a GFDI as well.
