A place where users can meetup with other FlexPower One users and can find support for one another. A great place for people who have not purchased the FlexPower One yet to look up information.

I see there is a OpticsRE feedback indicator for a Generator.

I was wondering if it would be possible to have a backup charge controller setup on its feedbackloop. I am looking at this because I already have 2 FM80 units on my existing shunts. I would mainly like to see if it was turned on or off with it. It does not have to show amps input but that would be nice if I could do that.

The Generator data in OpticsRE comes from the AC IN terminals and the Gen profile.

If you are using OpticsRE and FM80s, the charge controllers can be placed on the same shunt, and individual controller data will still be tracked. Move both controllers onto one shunt and free up the other for another use.
My two FM80s on one shunt.
