    Hi,

    I wonder if someone may have a solution to this ‘dilemma’.

    I have an Adria MH fitted with an Electrobloc EBL226 and an LT500 control and switch panel.
    The EBL 226 has a connection for its own solar charge regulator.
    Reading the destructions for these two bits of kit, it seems to me as if they monitor the power etc of your batteries and do whatever they need to do accordingly.

    So, if I connect my 100W Solar Panel via my MPT 1.170 (which uses Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)) regulator, to the leisure batteries, the EBL control unit will not read the available capacity properly because it will not be measuring the power going into the batteries from the solar panel.

    If I connect the panel to the EBL via the Schaudt Solar Charge Regulator (which I would have to purchase), then I will not get the benefit of the MPT regulator’s enhanced output.

    So, would it be possible to connect the output of the MPT to the EBL so as to maybe get the best of both worlds, with a good output from the MPT and the EBL to measure the battery strength etc.

    My previous Adria had an EBL208S, which also had a connection for a Solar Panel. The solar panel fitter by-passed this connection and the regulator was connected directly onto the battery. No problems, but I don’t think the 208S was quite the all singing all dancing system that the 226 seems to be, and don’t want to ‘upset’ the system as it were.

    Any advise appreciated

    Brian
