The Phocos 48V & 24V any grid inverters are fully compatible with the Hubble range of batteries. 


The following field guide will assist with the correct battery settings you should use.

For further detailed information ensure you read the manual of the supplied battery regarding the setup and installation instructions. You will require a Cloudlink unit to complete the full integration setup.

*Note the recommended cutoff is 44V ~ 45V. However, the internal battery cutoff is as low as 40V. Setting the cutoff to 40V will drain the battery to 0%. For extended lifespan we recommend a cutoff of 44V ~ 45V.

HUBBLE DIP SWITCH SETTINGS FOR MULTIPLE BATTERY INSTALLATION

​For correct setup and communication each battery needs a unique serial address in order to communicate. If you are only using one battery in your setup, consider this the master battery and ensure you set it to address 1.

Is there communications between the Phocos and the Hubble lithium batteries?

 

The Hubble range of batteries communicate to inverters using the CAN port. The Phocos does not have a CAN bus communications port. Although it does have a Modbus port, we do not support modbus. CAN bus communication is optional for Hubble and Axpert and the Hubble range of batteries work perfectly without communications. This is made possible by our internal BMS DC/DC converter and current limiting module. Our BMS will limit the current to the cells when requires through hardware instead of communications. Thus making the Hubble a great fit for inverters without CAN bus.

If you would like full communications between the Phocos and the Hubble battery, you can invest in a Hubble Cloudlink device. The Cloudlink will enable remote monitoring, 2 -way BMS integration and remote management of the Axpert through your cloud account. From our side we recommend installing a Cloudlink device with the Hubble on a Phocos so you can monitor, control and troubleshoot your solar solution remotely.

How do you setup multiple batteries?

 

See table above and check your product manual for a more detailed explanation. You will have to set dip switch settings per battery to give them a unique address. You also have to connect the included RJ45 battery link cables into the "Battery Link" port of each battery. Ensure your master battery dip switch 1 is on, 2,3,4 is OFF.  Only the master battery CAN Bus will be enabled. You can then connect the Hubble Cloudlink into the CAN port of the master battery for communications to work.

Do I have to use the communication battery link cables if i dont want to monitor or have communications?

 

Short answer No. However it is recommended to still connect the battery links and set the correct addresses. This also needs to be done if you want to connect a Hubble Cloudlink.
