  1. I could, but I have been running it like that for a year. Will there really be a balance issue?
  2. I have been live now for a year and according to the data generated 4541kW (4.5 MW sounds better) . My consumption has gone down since the geyser was placed on a timer with the installation, but as you can see the grid usage percentage is low, which was part of the goal, but of course beating loadshedding was the priority
  3. AC or DC symbol, VAC/VDC, or spelled out One of my fuses has VAC, other only has AC symbol on. I bought some Mersen VDC rated fuses from a local shop. https://ep-us.mersen.com/sites/mersen_us/files/DS-HP10M-HelioProtection-Photovoltaic-Fuses-Mersen.pdf
  4. My Firmware and VE configure options seem to have disappeared. I checked it seems the two-way communication is enabled.
  5. Funny enough.. this was done on installation.. and it turns out that only 1 fuse out the 6 was a dc fuse. This is what happens when people are left unsupervised and want to complete the job and make due with what they have in a toolbox somewhere. I was pretty livid to say the least. I am still planning on my next approach as on closer inspection 3 out of the 6 fuse holders are AC fuse holders..
  6. Normally via Bluetooth and the VictronConnect App, not sure if you can do it through VRM.
  7. Any Warnings? My friend had temperature warning, which was one of the screws where the PV cable connects to the MPPT, just needed to be tightened up a bit more. His would act out in the middle of the day or when things got hot.. and switch off.
  8. And... it was an AC fuse.. nice....
  9. The holder that blew a fuse was a Johnson, it has a light to indicate which fuse blew, so was easy to spot since I only realised my east string is dead this morning.
  10. Seems I have also blown a fuse yesterday afternoon. Will follow some of the advice given and provide feedback once I have a replacement fuse at hand.
  11. Wonder how the Bluenova rack mount prices look compared to those. https://batteriesonline.co.za/product/bluenova-52v-5-2k-lithium-battery-bank/
  12. Bit off-topic, how often are these releases done? I updated over the weekend to 2.51 I think, so waiting for the Pylontech Update for the 52.5 change which you mentioned was also somewhere in the 60s?
