Hello all,
I am planning to purchase a Growatt SPF 5000 ES and a 16s JK BMS. Would the inverter be able to communicate with the JKBMS with RS485?

No is the short answer but it may be possible to use a raspberry pi to read from the jk BMS and then emulate a battery protocol to the inverter

to read from the bms

This is meant to emulate the Pylontech battery protocol

to my understanding, the growatt communicates to the Pylontech battery over rs485 but this example is using can-bus so am still looking into this my self

Why you need the BMS talk with the inverter? i have a growatt spf 5000 es from signature solar and a diy battery 16s from docan with a JK-B2A24S20P BMS from Hantek working perfect, the communication is a gimmick just ask in the forum.
