  1. hi all,i have a epever n series mppt controller on my nb coupled to a 200 watt solar panel,the led screen is showing 100% charge,batteries full, but the watts are only showing between 40 and 50 watts from the panel, is this normal ? many thanks
  2. hi all, i have added another solar panel to my existing panel, and before they are connected to the mppt controller i`ve run them through an isolating fuse box ,which is fine , when i get back to my home mooring and plug into the landline my vitron battery charger come manager takes over the charging and managing the battery bank,so my question is should i turn off my solar panels at the isolating switch and let the victron do its job alone when on landline?many thanks

  8. i`ve just looked at my new panel and the spec is this,, nominal voltage 17.8, voc 21.6v, maximum power current 11.2amp, short circuit current 21.1amp.
  9. many thanks,i`ll have a look at the existing one on the boat when i can get down after lockdown,cheers
  10. thanks everyone for well explained answers,i think the best for me is to keep them separate,it just means i`ll have two controllers one per panel.
  11. i`m not entirely sure what you mean,i just thought they were 12v !!!
  12. hi guys,i hope everyone ok, i`ve just bought a new solar panel 200w, with a 30amp mppt controller,i do have an existing 100w panel going to a separate controller my question is will i be ok to get rid of my existing controller and run both panels through the new mppt controller making things a bit simpler,thanks in advance
