Hi folks, one of the problems I am seeing with my system is even when the transfer switch switches over to grid power, the inverter remains powered up and continues to draw energy from the battery, over time that does cause the battery to drop below the 50 percent set point (12.3 volts in this case) So, what I would like to do is insert a device into the grid power so that when it transfers to grid, the current sensor reads that current and trips a relay connected to the inverter DC input, effectively turning off the inverter. I have seen some hall effect sensors with on board relays with Over current and over voltage protection but I don't know if those would do the trick. So I defer over to you guys on the chance that you might know what I am yammering on about and throw some advice my way. Or point me to a thread that discusses this. Thanks gals/guys.
