do you know if I can let the last parallel with 12 modules instead of 14modules or need to be all with same number(13) ?
Gen1 solid box, Gen2 open box at midle and cooper is the double of thickness 1.5mm to 3mm probably was the main problem of the Gen1, about V i got 8.06V on Gen2 and 7.92V on Gen1, so they equal i think
finally modules arrived :), other's parts like rec (i add the bluetooth option to use with smartphone app) etc already here too, now it's time to mount the puzzle :D, design of modules remodelation...
Charger arrived was fast !
Already start plans before batteries arrives, SI Island and Rec Bms kit with bluetooth order also so now it just a matter of time ;), btw i brought here an bargain rack Compaq U42 with a lot of acessories !
found this one, should slowly do the job
thanks again really help me understand now, now will order the si+rec pieces+universal charger
Thanks for the fast answer, love it again !
1-but the new sunny island 8.0 has integrated the SRC, so once i will buy the new sunny island 8.0 still need appart the remote control "to "boot" it from cold start" ?
2-i use also switch lan speedwire into sma so these will do job because i see these part you show in the link but i did see in your setup, because sma has integrated right ?
4- i will go 14 modules in paralell x 7 in series, depends in the extras cells i can get more (+2)
these charger would do the job EV-PEAK A8 1350W DC unfurtunally the A9(cheaper9 only operates 0.1-25a and leaf goes 32A ?
the leaf batteries already brought now will do the list to buy the rest of the parts
Stay safe and healthy too !
Many Thanks Again
Hello from Portugal
What a great job guys !! Well i have thinking for a long time about get courage to doing something like you did, and after see your thread finally i moved into , my actual setup is SMA Home Manager 2.0 + sma sunny boy 5.0 with 16 panels rec 345w roof in my house, sma sunny boy 6.0 with 12 panels(to add more in future), now the next big project is add more storage system with sun tracker with 16 panels+sunny boy 6.0+sunny island 8.0+2 battery packs leaf 1 and 2 gen+bms and other parts like you did.
1º question is do i really need the Sunny Remote Control once i can access to island remotely ?
2º - SpeedWireModule para o PV WR - did you use these part ?
3º - before you mounting in parallel/series the modules did you charge all first individually ?if yes at what V ?
4º - once i have 96 modules what is your advice about make division for virtually cells BMS ?
5º - as i said i brought gen1 + gen2 leaf battery, can i put them together but spliced in parallel setup ?
i have your list of pieces i gone use same
thanks to all contributions
