    Morning

    Looking for a proper copy of this doc, it is settings for Victron MPPT and BMV-712 Monitors. Don't know if i download it from this forum or Victron website tried the Victron website don't see it there, also did a search on 4x4 Community website.

    Also want to ask I Have 200Ah AGM battery if the settings on the doc make sense.

    I have the following Victron products installed. Also looking for possible settings for other Victron products I have.

    2 X BMV-712
    2x MPPT 100/30
    1x Charger IP22 12/20
    1x Charger IP67 12/25

    Thankyou

    The figures add up. But I would have expected slightly higher figures as well, comparing them to my setup on my camper.

    I wonder if fitting them in series would give better efficiency in cloudy weather during peak times, like when the above data was taken? It would certainly start charging a bit earlier and a bit later, even if not substantial. I have 4 panels, 2 parallel banks, each in series. It still gives a decent charge in full shade - about 20% of full sun capacity, if I remember correctly.

    wow what a marathon read !! taken me about 5 days start to finish.

    I have the following setup in my 2010 DC Hilux , 100w panel from Bushpower on the roof rack, via 10w PWM controller to discover EV31A-A ( 4 years old) in engine bay linked to main battery by NL intelligent solenoid. One lead into cab to run 40l NL fridge on back seat , one lead to bin to run same fridge when canopy is on and we go away.

    I have added and modified the system as time has progressed and I am ashamed to say that the wiring looks like a big mess but it works. Who can you recommend to re do the wring so it looks really neat ?
    PS I'm located in Fourways ...

    Many Thanks

    Hi! Just want to check if this looks ok

    At long last did the solar panel connection to my Jurgens Oryx today.

    WRND Solar controller and DC-DC charger
    1x 100W (120W?) solar panel
    2 x 75ah AGM batteries in the Oryx, connected for 12V

    See photos -

    Does that look about right? The charging voltage from the WRND not too high?

    Appreciate any input.

    Not to high. Above 14.4V will indicate a problem

    I would suggest TOO LOW. Unless the batteries are already at full charge?

    From my understanding, deep cycle type batteries require 14.4 V to get to a full charge. The WRND does detect the charge status of the batteries and then 'switches' off the charging to the batteries to protect them. There is a low threshold where it will switch back on again.

    Hi Festi!
    Thanks for the info! The batteries were full or just about.

    Ek sien die tyd van jou lesing was net na 1 die middag die rede dalk vir lae watts is om jou batterye dalk al reeds vol gelaai was dan deop die watts en die amps namate die batterye vol laai , nie altyd bewolk wat min watts in bring nie,
    Ek het ook ge sien die UV beteken meer as direkte son en oartykeer kry jy meer gelaai met n wolk voor son as direkte son.
    N koue & skoon PV son paneel gee ook beter werk verigting jy kan dit toets waneer jy dit skoon gemaak het en nat gespuit het om af te koel dit gee meer amps

    Yup thats all said correct this is why they call it intelligent chargers
    Otherwise we had overcooked batterys all the time & hot drinks & meat in the freezers
