RE: PD9245C-14.8

don a Yes I'm still alive and kicking Sorry, I do not have any additional pictures. The several converters I have are in daily service being battery maintainers / chargers and simple power supplies. You might want to try an external adjustable resister aka POT to enable the desired voltage. You should look through the earlier comments and obtain a good DMM to find the resister in question.

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

RV Whisper.com Suggest you give them a look - Amazon has them in stock Only a few drawbacks from my perspective DHCP only, no static IP address capability 2.4Ghz only, no 5Ghz operation Not sure how software updates are accomplished Several Temperature, Humidity, Battery, etc. monitoring options available Including integration with a shunt based Battery monitoring system Reminds me of the Trimetric battery monitoring stuff early in it's development

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

Still on the OP topic, rather than create a new thread I will ask this here Has anyone had experience with this company? Good bad or indifferent would like to know https://rvwhisper.com/ Looks like a good possibility for remote WiFi monitoring I emailed them regarding my isolated LAN no internet requirements Waiting for a response

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

Good to see that we finally have "use case" question Looking forward to seeing the OP response to this question Very aware we all have different uses and needs Mine - My RV sits about a 1,500ft from my home office in a heated powered Barn with a solid WiFi connection. I currently monitor and adjust the storage temperature and humidity with a nice Radio Thermostat. My desire is to monitor both the LiFe and FLA batteries in the rig while in my home office. It's PIA to walk to the barn in sub zero temps and 10" of ice and snow on the ground. This LAN connection is local only as in an isolated LAN without an Internet connection. Yes I am very security conscious. No Cloud services here! None of the 100 plus IP cameras we have here ever see the internet. MAC blocking works great on a quality router. The Trimetric "station" mode solution looked interesting until it required the 2030 model - mine is the 2025 which in NOT compatible. Not sure if it requires a login and cloud service, assume it does. The Victron solution requires an internet cloud login - no way will it function with an isolated LAN. The Rasberry Pi system is a strong possibility Looking forward to a cleaner solution, but not holding my breath

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

I had high hopes for this solution it looked great. To bad the only compatible Raspberry Pi 3 B+ version is not available any more or at least any where I can find it. I see the 4 version is not compatible and way more expensive.

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

Bruce Thanks for the info - Looks and sounds like a possible solution Is the cable you are referencing the VE Bus to USB cable? I have the Victron Bluetooth Smart Shunt Busy today but will look into it tomorrow first thing Thanks again

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

Researched both the Trimetric and Victron WiFi enabled stuff. No go, still looking for a suitable solution. A conversation with Bogart Trimetric said my "OLD" 2025 unit was obsolete they REQUIRE a 2030 with updated software. The Victron "solution" is way expensive, requires internet and a cloud login. Yes there is a difference between WiFi and internet. One of my local LANs never sees the internet, too many hackers! No way do I desire the "cloud" looking at all my devices. Continuing to look for a solution

RE: Redarc 40 amp DC to DC Charger issue

Might be normal, If your Redarc is anything like my Victron 18amp which has no current regulation. Me I'm very disappointed in the Victron DC to DC chargers they offer no way to adjust the output current. Check out their web site forum and the many many complaints regarding this issue. Even worse my Isolated 18A max DC to DC charger, charges my 200amp/hr Li battery at 26amps! WTF! Had to return the 40amp version it went to as much as 70amps with no way to adjust the current.

RE: Battery monitor that connects to wifi

Following...... Been looking for a while now. Nothing that suits my needs just yet hope someone has a solution for the OP and myself. Sure would be nice to have a simple battery voltage monitor that broadcasts a WiFi signal to my local LAN. Found several that do their own priority RF connections and or short range Bluetooth but nothing that can be accessed remotely via WiFi that acts as a AP and broadcasts to my Local LAN.

RE: Xantrez ProSine 2.0 Inverter Charger 2000W

Yes, they are repairable, however NOT easily Translate that to mean > $600 for repairs that was several years ago Many if not most of the repair parts are no longer available I trashed most of my spare parts several years back As others suggested get a new one with separate components as in Inverter, Charger and Transfer switch

RE: 8 / 40 volts to 12 volts

Caution - I have a few of these devices and am NOT impressed (20amp, 6amp and a 3amp). The 20amp one has huge AC spikes on the 12.35Vdc output. Output regulation is OK at best with the boost / buck conversion. They will not operate an IP camera with their excessive AC spikes which are at 500mmsec intervals. Used a 20volt Dewalt tool battery and gave up.

RE: Samlex Inverter Power Draw Question

Have to agree - no need to confuse the crowd or start an argument Yes, I believe the Li system uses GBS cells not 100% sure since they have been in there for going on 7 years now. Don't even see them (do remotely monitor the cells and pack status) for years at a time they simply work. Unfortunately I still have 200amp/hrs of the old heavy high maintenance FLA GC batteries that demand attention almost every trip.

RE: Samlex Inverter Power Draw Question

full mosey You are correct - there is a difference between Cells and a "Battery" To confuse things even more my cells are LiFeMnPO4 200amp prismatic I strapped 4 of them together and bolted on connections to make my "Battery" I almost always refer to the cells as LiFe or LIFE only because most folks get confused with the Mn / Manganese (hope its spelled correctly)

RE: Samlex Inverter Power Draw Question

No Fuss at all! I highly recommend the LIFE cells They just work - even in the winters/summers of Montana Had my 4 LIFE 200amp cells for going on 7 years now No BMS - just four 200amp LIFE Cells strapped together Use a simple $15 Cell Log 8 to monitor cell performance They all track <30mv difference all the time from full charge to full discharge They easily supply enough for a 2KW psw inverter which powers my 1Kw Microwave
