It's critical that you do get it sorted out, not only for battery life but also for safety (risk of fire), The Revov R100 brochure claims Sunsynk compatibility, but it isn't clear to me whether they support comms with the inverter or not, it could be that they are expecting you to set the inverter to use voltage to determine SoC, and whilst this could work, this is bad for a whole lot of reasons.

If I were you I would get hold of the supplier and determine whether comms between the battery and inverter is supported or not, if not then send the batteries back and get something else. IMHO it's far too much money to spend on something that doesn't work properly.

I agree with Tapemeasure, if you are paying top dollar for the batteries, you want ones that are going to be speaking to the Inverter. Relying on the BMS to keep control of things is not ideal, especially when the inverter has the ability to manage things.

Hi LiFer 

Thanks for the input, just to be 100% clear, so the Revov R100 communicates with the Sunsynk inverter using the CanBus connection? 

 

And another question please, is it possible to mix my batteries, say 2 x Revov R100's with my existing 2 x Bull 6.4kw Batteries? 

 Thanks 🙂

I wonder what version of Firmware they are compatible with, the document is from the middle of last year and I think that there have been firmware updates since then.

Which versions of firmware are they not compatible with?

The screens in the photo's look different to my firmware, could be old firmware?

Afternoon,

The Revov R100 units have full communications via CAN with SunSynk range. It does require technical assistance which is readily available through the technical department which you can contact on 010 035 6061.

In regards to your second question– The Revov R100 units will communicate with each other as well as the inverter (of approved list) as well. Unfortunately they do not communicate with batteries of different brands. The solution to that would be to configure the inverter on a voltage setting and ensuring the 4 batteries are attached through a bus bar system of industry standard with accompanying fuses.

The Revov R100 units are fully compatible with the latest firmware of both SunSynk and Victron brands.
