Re: New problem involving boiling batteries
Well for one thing 14.4 Volts is the proper (but lower) Absorb level for flooded cell batteries on a 12 Volt system. Gassing is also normal, but it could be going on for too long.
So first let's check the numbers.
Six 145 Watt panels is 870 Watts. That should be enough for 55 Amps max out of the MX/FM60. That's an 8% charge rate so it ought to work.
Now, time to check some more numbers; specific gravity on each and every battery cell. Look out for differences over 0.010.
If you had a shorted cell it would put too much Voltage into the rest in that string, causing it to gas those cells more vigorously (like running an EQ cycle).
You should also check the Absorb time limit and compare it to the Bulk time and the Amp reading at the end of Absorb. If the Absorb time runs out when the Amps are down around 2% (13) it should be good.
Float Voltage setting should be 13.8.
Four 175 Watt panels, OB MX60, 232 Amp hrs, OB 3524, Honda eu2000.
Ohm's Law: Amps = Volts / Ohms
Power Formula: Watts = Volts * Amps
