Electrics explained.

Postby NeilandPat » Tue Sep 03, 2019 11:29 am

I am a big believer in Victron. There stuff is good.

Just stumbled into this document.

Even if you don't have, / like or want Victim, it's a very nice document that explains loads and may be of some use .

So might anyone that's ever had anything from the Sterl*ng stable.

Seriously though, or even more seriously at any rate, Victron stuff does seem to be the real deal.

I am an avid Victron user, I now have the complete electrical system for the truck, 20kw of Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide batteries, Lynx Ion BMS, 8Kw Quattro Inverter, CCGX controller. and a load of 24/12 converters and tank sensors.

Its all running on the bench perfectly, it auto starts the generator, does everything i need.

Blimey Chris, that's probably worth more than my entire truck... or house.

It's certainly enough to power my house!
This is not a critisism, nor indeed unique to Chris's truck but I find the concept of a basic tech truck filled with high tech systems interesting.

It might seem a bit over the top, but when you consider it's all electric, cooking as well, it's just about right.
