my two biggest questions are fire hazard and off gassing of LiFe
Sounds like you're saying I could get even more storage with the 300Ah LiFe than the 375Ah Lead?
With what mention, 12 lots of 300Watt panels would not seem to match a battery size of 300Ahr to 400Ahr.That number of panels can produce in the order of 140Amps charge current into your battery.
This is directly from the TS-MPPT-60 manualThe EIA-485 port has 4 connections Power, Data A, Data B, and ground Data A&B are differentially driven data lines that carry the network data. Power and ground connections provide power to the network. the tristar MPPt does not supply power to the EIA-485 network, therefor an external power source is required. The source voltage must be between 8-16 Vdc. For 12 volt systems the network can be powered directly from the system battery. Use a DC-DC converter for 24, 36 and 48 volt systems..Yes i understand that MODBUS is the protcol and that RS-485 is just the physical medium..
