The Victron range of inverters are fully compatible with the Hubble range of batteries including the essential Cloudlink Device required for communication.
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.
victron INVERTER SET UP
When installing a Victron system it is required to install a Hubble Cloudlink for communication between the inverter and the batteries.
The Cloudlink will enable the Victron Extended Protocol and can enable advanced settings like Dynamic Voltage charge control which is recommended on the Victron system. Without a Cloudlink the GX/Inverter/MPPT must be setup to use Voltage Control though static charge settings.
ESS SETUP (OPTIONAL)
Enable DVCC is preferred.
When using the Hubble Cloudlink you will see the below screen Hubble Cloudlink (RIOT Cloudlink for older models) appear.
This will allow the Victron to listen to the Hubble battery charge voltage instructions when using a Cloudlink.
All other settings can be disabled on this page.
Low Shut Down
More details are displayed when going into the battery device.
The Cloudlink runs the Victron Extended Protocol and will enable the "Details" page for more information about the battery systems that are connected.
Below are the Hubble BMS, Cloudlink, and Victron side pinouts.
Note that the Hubble Lithium BMS pinouts are the same as the Cloudlink CAN pinouts.
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.
am-5 & AM-10
What cable do I need to connect my Hubble Lithium battery with a Victron Inverter?
For the Victron inverters to communicate with the Hubble Lithium range of batteries you will require a Victron Type B cable.
You will also need a Victron Type B cable if using the Hubble Cloudlink. The Cloudlink will enable the Victron Extended Protocol, remote monitoring and extended battery BMS monitoring.
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?
