            Is there a difference aside from jacket color (resistance, performance, ect) in regular #8 stranded cable and ground stranded #8 cable? Can I use #8 b stranded cable as ground cable and tape the ends green?

              So before I make the purchase need to make sure this fuse/breaker fits into system which is 3 260w panels in series (going to 6 in couple months) 50A 150v MPPT/ (8) 6V 230a/h battery bank wired in series 48v/ 2000w 48v AIMS inverter. Cable runs from panel to mppt are 50' using (#8 cable) All the other runs will be no more than 5' using cables per calculator suggestion.

              Going with:
              Blue Sea System285-Series 40A Circuit Breaker (between solar panels and MPPT)
              Blue Sea System285-Series 60A Circuit Breaker (between MPPT 50A and Battery Bank)
              Blue Sea System285-Series 80A Circuit Breaker (between Battery Bank 48v 230a/h to Inverter 48V 2000w cont)
              Blue Sea System 300A m-Series Battery Switch
              Looking to have a fuse directly on the positive lead from the battery. Any suggestion? Looking at Blue Sea System MRBF Terminal Fuse Block with 250A fuse

              System will be ungrounded for a few months until I recover financially from the initial investment then will ground completely with a Lighting arrestor integrated

                Interesting thread--hope people are recovering well on your island.

                I have a 428AH leaded flood acid battery bank with my system and mounted this T-type fuse in AWG 00 battery cable that runs from the bank to the inverter: It seems like a very simple and solid product. Not sure how the price compares to the Blue Sea one you're considering, it runs about $50 shipped.

                Although close to the postive post of the battery is good, you don't necessarily want this in your battery enclosure because it could produce a spark which could potentially ignite any accumulated hydrogen gas venting from the batteries. Mine is mounted on the outside of my battery box--24" of cable length away from the post.

                  Good day I want to find out if I can connect a 6A10 and a 10A10 diode on a 100W 12V solar panel, we have two 12 volt batteries with a 1200W inverter and a 12/24V charge controller. Is it compulsory for both diodes to be the exact same size or doesnt it matter?

                    3 steps here
                    1) get a baseball bat (wood , not metal)
                    2) find the source of the information about using a diode, use the bat and smash the source. Diodes have not been needed with panels for 20 years, unless it's a
                    DIY panel that has no factory diodes
                    3) forget about diodes and re-ask the question
