    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Hi, Thank you Jimmy. This really makes sense now. Very exciting! And cool. I’m going to have a go wiring it in soon. Do you have any of those wires fused? So great full for this, I would have never understood it other wise. Many thanks. Fraser

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Thank you for the reply. My little Honda has a digital display too. Sorry to be a dummy but how is it wired into the little plastic relay 1 thing. I see 3 slots. Are they pushed into the left side near where on the gx it says NO. I really haven’t a clue. Thanks so much for your help.

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Thank you for you reply. Yeah I think mine does. My generator is a good 15 metres from my cerbo though. That may be a issue with the thin wires and the distance? What distance is yours working at? Many thanks Fraser

    Cerbo gx relay wiring

    Hi everyone. Does anyone have a cerbo gx that uses the stop start generator relay? The relay things on the cerbo don’t even seem to have a screw on them. Never wired a relay and these ones look extra special. If anyone has any pictures of this and can give me advice on how to wire the thing and...

    Panels have oily marks all over them.

    Thanks for your reply. It wasn’t that hot here few weeks ago when I finished putting them up. But the marks have got worse as it’s got hotter this last week. So some residue is baking on and making it look awful. I don’t think I can scrape them without doing more damage.

    Panels have oily marks all over them.

    hi everyone. Looks like I have made a big mistake: I put my solar panels up and when I did, I covered them in black plastic because the manual said not to connect or disconnect under load. The plastic had left oils marks on the panels. Looks awful. I have washed them off with just water and...

    Earthing of panels

    So I could just get two 2 pole SPD? Thanks for the link. I can just use one of them with each one of my 63amp dc breakers and happy days. Do you think I should get another earth pole in the ground somewhere as well then. I have one for the house and one for all the mppt and batteries and...

    Earthing of panels

    I have isolation switches and inline fuses but no spd. Not sure how to size it for my arrays. We rarely have lightning so at the moment I’m going to rush out there if I’m home and disconnect stuff 😬. My bigger array delivers just over 40 amps and nearly 190 v Not sure if I can connect an spd to...

    Earthing of panels

    Hi guys. Needing more help. I have 20 solar panels and they are on a metal roof connected to short metal rails. Can I not just earth the metal roof or one of the one foot metal rails that is screwed to the metal roof? or should I earth every panel? I have a 5ft grounding rod in the ground right...

    Fitted a Midi fuse in a Victron Lynx Distributor. Is it OK?

    Thanks for your reply. Yeah it works a treat. I’m using it. All my solar positive and negatives go to it and right on the ends of the lynx I run my cables off into the mppt.

    Power in

    Would anyone know or think it ok to use a lynx power in as a combiner for solar strings? It’s just thick copper bar and had no circuit board so the 60v as stated on other lynx distributors shouldn’t count on the power in. I can’t find a descent combiner box in the uk.
