Correct. The Rapid Shutdown mechanism must be thought of as a total system that is tied together. Whatever initiates the RSD on one component must trigger all components. This can be a challenge to set up, but it can be done with some careful thought and the right hardware.Good points, however I think powering the transmitter from a battery bank essentially defeats the entire purpose of the rapid shutdown. Initiating a rapid shutdown of the inverter wouldn’t turn the panel production off due to the transmitter still being powered via the battery bank.
Correct me if I’m wrong?
EG4 just released a video about it.
