  • Victron MPPT Load Output Setting?

    I know what the LOAD OUTPUT is and what it does--I've read the VictronConnect manual and the applicable section for the setting.

    What the manual doesn't say is what the setting should be if NOT using the VEDirect port to drive a BatteryProtect product. I've got a VEDirect cable hooked up that goes right to the CCGX. I have no need or use for the LOAD OUTPUT function.

    So what should the setting be? Always Off? Always On? Does it even matter?

    I got a quick response from AMSolar:

    If you aren't using the Load Output to run 12-volt DC devices we'd recommend setting it to "Always Off" - although it doesn't really matter, the "Always On" setting could draw very small amounts of power, and there's no reason to have it on without loads.
