Important Information:

Please check the Pylontech compatibilty guide to see if your inverter uses RS485 or Can Communication protocols.

When using RS485 protocol, This Pylontech Battery can be connected in up to 6 strings of 16 batteries for a total of 96 US5000-B batteries in parallel. No LV Hub is required.

When using Can protocol,This Pylontech Battery can be connected in up to 6 strings of 16 batteries per LV Hub (6x16=96 Batteries per LV Hub), A total of 5 LV Hubs can then be paralleled up for a total of 480 US5000-B batteries in parallel.(96x5=480 Batteries)

No Series connection allowed

External BMS

A LV-HUB communications hub is required when more than 1 string of batteries is paralleled using CAN Communications Protocol.

A single LV-HUB communications hub can manage up to 6 strings of 16 batteries for a total of 96 US5000-B batteries per LV-Hub

A total of five LV Hubs and their associated 96 batteries can then be parralled to a total 480 US5000-B Batteries.

Systems containing between 2 to 5 LV Hubs will require 1 additional LV Hub to act as the Master Hub.
