  1. 1 Charger 1 Inverter Setup as UPS

    I think 8 milliseconds should be fine. Thanks for the advice.
  2. I have a 1600VA 24V Victron inverter that can run most of my base loads. My only grouse with the system is that the changeover time is too long for my network equipment. Since we have several power outages every day, I have to manually restart my network equipment several times a day. These are options I am proposing to resolve the problem: 1. Getting a small smart UPS and connecting the network equipment to it. Not sure if this is the most elegant way to solve the problem. 2. Getting a bigger 24V inverter charger and running my 24V Victron 1600VA inverter charger solely as an inverter to continuously invert and power my network devices 24/7 via battery power. The bigger inverter-charger will be used to continuously charge the 24V battery and act as a power supply unit. What are the merits/demerits of these solutions? Are there any better options?
  3. Regarding downloads & Hi!

    I recently installed a 24V battery bank- 4 units of 6V 360Ah USbattery batteries and I am looking to get the longest life out of the batteries. So, I am trying to read up about lead-acid batteries. The files I am interested in are the Handbook for Stationary Lead Acid Batteries, Parts 1 and 2.
  4. DIY Powerwall with 18650 batteries

    There is a real risk of starting a fire. I would not dare try this in my house.
  5. Regarding downloads & Hi!

    Can you please re-consider this topic? I really don't want to post for the sake of getting access to downloads but it will be nice to have access to those files.
  6. I just bought a 24V Victron 1.3KW Multiplus inverter charger to run electronic gadgets and lights in my house. My battery bank is 4 units of flooded 360Ah usbattery 6V. I am thinking of running a 2nd inverter on the same 24V battery bank to power my refrigerator and deep freezer, about 800W total. The 2nd inverter may be a xantrex inverter without charger function. Is it possible to design the system in such a manner that the 2nd inverter will only work when the battery SOC is between 90-70% and dropping? This is to prevent total depletion of the battery bank. However, there may be issues with switchover to grid power when power is restored because the Xantrex inverter has no inbuilt changeover switch. Any ideas how I can accomplish this?
