Busbar / Fuses

Recommended Posts

I'm finally getting around to installing my LFP's (almost a year late!)

Finally got a nice 42u rack, and can move out the dead acid, yay!

 

Onto my question -

 

I need to put some bus bars up for + and - to/from inverter and batteries and put a fuse disconnect in.

Any suggestions on what to use for bus bars, and where to buy in/around CPT?

 

For fuse disconnects - I was looking at the KETO's - do I need one or two?

eg https://thepowerstore.co.za/products/keto-battery-disconnector-with-160a-fuses

 

Thanks!

I used two earth bars, bought at an electrical supplier (Cronlec in my case). Mounted them in a UT-7s case. Only issue is that the bolt goes through the bar and you need to tighten it from both ends. At the cost its not too bad a source of thick copper bar.
