I think these questions are firmly aimed at @plonkster, but I’ll ask them publically for the benefit of the forum.
1.) I bought 4*150 85A Victron Bluesolar MPPT’s for a price I couldn’t refuse. These are the same form factor as the newer Smartsolar 150 85A Victron MPPT’s, with VE direct ports,( not the older metal-encased ones). The thing is I think this was a very small production run because they aren’t an option in the VictronConnect app and don’t see references to this model. Have I bought a supported product?
2.) I have only previously used Outback with my Victron inverters. I’d like to use these Victron MPPT’s for the solar production reporting aspect. However one of the things, I do in my setup is set the inverter charging voltage lower than the Outbacks charging voltage. I find this ability to independently set different charging voltages useful.
Will I lose this ability if I use Victron MPPT’s, in other words, will the MPPT’s automatically assume the inverters charging voltage settings?
Can I have the reporting facility and the setting independence simultaneously?
