RE: Solar Installation

Very impressed with your skills and quality of workmanship. Do you have an updated pic with fuses of this box and explain how its wired? https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/91099844/IMG_3922_web.jpg

RE: Another Solar Setup

Did I understand correctly that you ran the 6 gauge from the controller to your Intellipower chargers secondary posts instead of directly to the battery? Thats something I didnt consider in my install and would've saved me some cable.

RE: Wire Size & fuses for solar install

Ok, so much for doing this on the cheap. I found this combiner that will accept inputs from the MC4's. Looks like I would mount this on the roof and run two 6 AWG wires, one positive, one negative, from it to the controller. Sound right? http://www.solar-electric.com/misomnsoarco4.html Which fuse between battery and controller? Thanks for the inputs.

Wire Size & fuses for solar install

I have 4 140 Watt 12v panels connected in parallel on the roof. I took the guy at Solar Blvd's advice and bought #10 AWG wire for the run to the controller. Controller is a Mornigstar TS-45 PWM. It is about 35' away from the panels. Is this wire size big enough? Should I use the same size wire to the battery bank? And lastly what size and type fuse should I use between the load & batteries to the controller or should I use a re-settable breaker? Thanks.
