Pylontech LifePo4 3.5kWh modules
If you have questions about your battery, you can visit the Pylontech Where to Buy Page or ask your fellow members in the Victron Community. You can also check the Pylontech Community by selecting a topic labeled "Pylontech". If you're planning to run a large PV system, you'll need an LV-Hub to connect your batteries to each other. You can find references in the Pylontech documentation, but they are not guaranteed to be accurate.
The BMU on the Pylontech automatically configures battery charging parameters and communicates them to other Victron components. You can view total charge current, additional limitations and information about how to override these settings. Pylontech BMU assumes you're familiar with the VEConfigure software. It's also possible to override the BMU's settings manually, if you wish to.
The US3000 lithium iron phosphate battery from Pylontech is a new energy storage product. It offers reliable power for various equipments. The BMS allows the users to balance charging and discharging for extended cycle life. Multiple batteries can be connected in parallel to increase the power and capacity. The US3000 LiFePO4 battery is a safe and environmentally friendly option. The Cathode material is LiFePO4 and has safety and longevity characteristics that are comparable to conventional lead-acid and lithium batteries.
For single-phase off-grid applications, the US3000C battery system from Pylontech is designed for maximum performance and durability. It can be scaled up to commercial-sized storage systems. The system can be used in high power-demand environments. Each Pylontech battery module includes a Battery Management System (BMS) that interfaces with the VictronGX device. You can connect as many battery modules as needed for a specific application.
The US3000C battery from Pylontech has a 3.5kWh capacity per module. Each module contains a battery management system for maximum safety. It's monitored internally and is protected from deep discharge, overvoltage, and overheating. Besides being safe, the LifePo4 modules are compatible with the leading inverters, such as Victron Energy, OutBack Power, and Solax. They are easy to combine and commission.
The battery can be used as a standalone system or as a part of a grid connected ESS. The GX device controls the MPPT charge characteristics. You can also use the GX device to disable low voltage pre-alarm. If you run your system beyond its operating parameters, the Pylontech battery will automatically disconnect from the system. The GX device can also be used to monitor individual cell levels.
Victron EasySolar 5000VA
The Victron EasySolar 5000VA Solar and Wind Power Inverter/Charger is an all-in-one system that includes an MPPT solar charge controller, inverter/charger, AC distribution and remote monitoring capability. Its streamlined design allows you to connect up to 5800W of solar panels with minimal wiring. It uses ultra-fast MPPT algorithms to maximize charging power and has unique Battery Life Protection. The unit is also easy to use and provides maximum return on investment.
Unlike other inverters, the EasySolar 5000VA inverter/charger shares its connection to the battery bank with the inverter/charger. When the battery bank is fully charged, it provides 4000W of continuous 230V power. In addition, it can withstand short-term peaks of up to 10,000W. It detects 230V input and automatically switches from DC to AC when the voltage falls below 12 milliseconds.
Victron EasySolar 5000VA Solar and Wind Power is a ready-to-use system that integrates MPPT solar charge controller, inverter/charger, AC distribution, and a battery system. Its pre-installed MPPT solar chargers and AC distribution will help you power all your household appliances and other equipment off the grid. It also has pre-installed inverter/charger and AC breakers. It does not require any future maintenance.
It also has a true sine wave inverter, allowing it to power 120-Volt AC equipment while supplying 12V DC batteries. Its performance has been optimized, and it delivers 1200VA continuous power and 2200W peak power at up to 230V AC. The inverter also offers 1 Watt of continuous power and a half-watt of zero-load power.
Victron Cyrix-Li-Ct battery combiner
The Victron Cyrix-Li-CT battery combiner offers excellent performance at an affordable price. It is particularly efficient for off-grid systems. Whereas lead-acid batteries often achieve efficiency levels of 50% or less, the LFP batteries achieve an energy efficiency of 90 percent or higher. It is also suitable for heavy-duty applications and can be connected in parallel or series configurations.
The Cyrix-Li-CT battery combiner uses microprocessor-controlled relays to automatically connect and disconnect the batteries, when the voltage reaches a predefined level. This means that the Cyrix-Li-Ct is an excellent replacement for diode isolators. In addition, it virtually eliminates voltage loss and does not require increased output voltage. This device is designed to be installed in solar or wind power systems, and it is compatible with both lead acid and lithium batteries.
This battery combiner offers dual power supply functionality. The Cyrix 12/24 will sense both batteries connected to it and automatically engage when the accessory battery is charging. This dual power supply prevents battery disengagement in the case of low battery voltage or over-heating. The Cyrix-Li-Ct has a three-second delay time for overvoltage detection. The Cyrix-Li-Ct is a must for solar and wind power systems.
