  1. BSLB range of batteries are compatible with Sunsynk as we have confirmed in our testing environment namely: 5,1kw BSLB 6,4kw BSLB 10,2kw BSLB
  2. Dear Powerforum Members The BSL Battery team in china has been working with Growatt for over 6 months to develop the correct firmware version that will allow direct communication via canbus. Backbone Energy officially tested this yesterday in our offices and it works. A noticeable change will be where percentage is now displayed on the Growatt screen. If any members have Growatt inverters paired with BSL Lithium Batteries please ask your installer for the firmware update. Alternatively your installer can contact us on [email protected] - subject line Growatt / BSLB f
  3. best practice would be charge @ 80ah max discharge is 210ah battery capacity 250ah this subject to parallel with communication into the Sunsynk and communication between each battery. question: have the dip switches been changed to accommodate second battery?
  4. Dear Powerforum Members The BSLB range of batteries has a new entrant which is soon to land and become available for residential usage namely the BSLB Powerwall. The BSLB Powerwall has been in development for some time and continuous refinement being done by the R&D team in China. Some noteworthy specifications: 51v 10.2kw LiFePO4 battery 200aH available continuous Wall mount ready LCD screen for SOC and SOH monitoring 1C performance guarantee Stock is limited and will be available next week.
  5. So it may seem a bit silly to ask you to view our renewable energy market as a person but the logic behind it is sound. Many an expert offer different points of view due to the fact that historically renewable energy has been around a long time. In the context of this poll, we want to know what your opinion is on the matter. The renewable energy market has been lying limbo in the background for several years and only until recently, like say the latest 3 - 5 years has it really picked up. Determining an age for the market allows us to plan what the future holds and what drivers will grow
  6. Good Day Powerforum members Lithium battery prices are set to increase as much as 25% in the coming months. This will be felt across the globe as the 2 biggest lithium cell manufacturers are experiencing supply shortages. These are the manufacturers of the following cells: CATL cells BYD cells Additionally container shortages are being felt across the world with available containers being priced at premiums which means consumers then carry the cost. We may find second life lithium cells and batteries having stable pricing but this is uncertain. We will endeavour
  7. Hi Daniemj Thanks for these and I can suggest a few changes on the settings. If a reset on the battery didn't solve the problem completely, a second reset might work. Otherwise we can get the battery back in for a firmware reset. Would you please get your installer to contact me via email at [email protected] and I will discuss some aspects with him for your installation and any further installations he does in future. regards Charles BackBone Energy
  8. Hi Daniemj This is interesting and not something I have seen before while working on the BSL's. Have you contacted your supplier regarding this problem? What are your settings on the battery? Please could you provide me all the screens on the battery setup menus? I work mostly with BSL and Sunsynk, I would just like to check a few settings out first. Next step if there aren't any issues there, is to contact your supplier for support and see what they are able to do for you regarding checking the BMS on the battery. I can do the backup support on the battery if your supplier is u
  9. This is a very important point and something that needs to be addressed by more manufacturers. With the BSL, no matter what has been physically done to the battery and how the internal setup has changed, there has been a drive to make sure that all the batteries within their range are comms capable and able to be paralleled with each other. So the older 5,1kW battery is able to integrate with the 6.4kW battery, this is because the current BMS and firmware are setup to do so. This is of course over a one year period. Further down the line and as advancements in technology come, there might
  10. A very interesting topic here and happy to put my two cents in. I have my own opinions of Pylontech batteries, this is not the platform to air them though. I prefer to make sure that people can get a better understanding of the products they purchase. We supply and I do the support for the BSL battery, what you have all come to know as the Bull Battery, and I am involved heavily behind the scenes with the battery and manufacture of it. A few of you I recognise as people I have actually dealt with and personally helped in setting up systems with the BSL's. We can guarantee the batte
  11. Hi Wade Please have your installer assess and work on the CT before attempting to do anything yourself. Your installer is welcome to contact us for assistance if required.

    Part 2 is more in depth with the Sunsynk inverter itself. A technical read for solar installers and electricians.

    This is part 1 of a 2 part training manual on the Sunsynk Hybrid inverter. Part 1 is more general in terms of PV, energy, inverters etc ... A good read if you can ignore all the watermarks.
  14. Dear Powerforum members The new 51v BSLB 120aH has arrived and here are the changes: 1. Grey in colour 2. 150aH breaker attached to battery 3. Internal cell protection casing enhancement 4. Clearly labelled tested aH before dispatch 5. Improved lithium cell spacing The new BLSB will be listed as a 51v 6,2kw BSLB Lithium battery however and in most cases the tested aH before dispatch averages 126,5aH - 127aH. Essentially this means they are still 6,4kw. The reason for the capacity definition of 6.2kw is to be in line with the CPA should 1% off the batteries
  15. Hi Powerforum Members We are nearly done with the BSLB manuals and have designed the manual per OEM inverter. The following two manuals will be available soon: 1. Victron / BSLB 2. Sunsynk / BSLB We are putting the finishing touches together for these manuals. Due to the large scope of usage and complexity when using Victron and Sunsynk the manuals are trimmed and shortened. We are however nearly finished with our new testing / training office and as such will compile video tutorials for each inverter mentioned per manual. Subsequent versions of the manuals will include th
