Is it possible to program a Kodak inverter in order to shut down the system when the lithium battery reaches 20%?

Sadly, no.

The best you can do is to measure a representative battery voltage closest to when battery is at 20%, and then  use this value as a low battery cutoff in the inverter settings menu. 

There are other more accurate and creative solutions. If you have  a pi controller and you can read the battery soc, then you can issue a remote cutoff voltage to the inverter, which is the same as the current battery voltage when the pack is at 20%.

This will only disconnect battery, but will still allow charging, when such sources becomes available.

Good Day Desiree

 

Our New versions of Kodak units ( Unit s with round screens) will give you battery SOC in terms of percentages and you would be able to set it accordingly. Please be advised to ensure that BMS is established between your battery and inverter to ensure correct values are read by your inverter in terms of battery state.

How do I make sure my Kodak Inverter is actually communicating with the BMS

(Inverter - OG-Plus 5.48 ; Battery FL5.2)

Good day. This Setting can be achieved using Setting number 12 of the Unit. This Will cause the inverter to start charging the battery when it gets to the voltage level.

The other option is to set the cut off Voltage on setting number 28. This will be done with voltage settings. Kodak inverters only have voltage settings and no Battery COC percentage values.
