  • The complex relay network of the Signature system on one control board reduces install labor and troubleshooting time.
  • Unlike the Essential system, all controls operate on the positive side of the circuit for a more intuitive design.
  • Maximum current output is no longer limited by the BMS which enables the use of heavier loads.
  • Designed to be DIY friendly
  • Pricing similar to that of the Essential system
  • Compatible with Victron system cores, monitors and inverter kits

A major design challenge with lithium battery systems is preventing harmful overcharging or overdischarging of the batteries. Unlike lead-acid batteries, which have voltages that are reflective of charge status (called the Peukart Effect), lithium batteries require a Battery Management System (BMS). This is because Lithium batteries have a more constant voltage that is not as indicative of the charge level which makes them more susceptible to damage. Additionally, lithium batteries are damaged by a charging current that is applied when the cell temperature is below 0 degrees C (freezing). 

The AM Solar Lithium Base Kit simplifies this problem. The Lithium Control Module uses a temperature sensor and controls all the battery charging and discharging sources with high current relays and mosfet switches.  No programming or configuration is required. The unit designed to be plug-and-play, with the DIY installer in mind.

Battery Add-on kits:

The base kit does not include batteries.  Up to four batteries can be added to a standard base kit.  Up to ten batteries can be added if additional Lynx distributors and Mega fuses are included.  All batteries in a system must have the same Ah rating.
