The Victron range of 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.

Victron Inverter

When installing a Victron system it is highly recommended 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.

Whilst you can install a Hubble direct with a Victron without a Cloudlink, you will get reduced CAN bus functionality.

ESS SETUP

​ESS Settings for AM-2 & X-101


Program the following ESS settings on the inverter:
 

  • 0.05C - 44.2V

  • 0.25C - 43.55V

  • 0.5C - 42.9V

  • 0.7C - 42.25V

  • 1C - 42V

  • ​2C - 42V

​​The following is a guide for the 5KW Multiplus with an AM-2 Hubble Lithium battery:
 

  • DC Input low shut-down: 43V

  • DC input low restart: 45V

  • ​DC Input low pre-alarm: 44V

GX SETUP

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.

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.

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?

 

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.
