You have control over this process via three methods on the Anker app:
1. If PV power generation is greater or equal to your electricity demand, Solarbank will power your home through the bypass circuit. Excess power will be stored in Solarbank.
2. If PV power generation is greater than 100W but less than your demand, PV power will go to your home load, but no energy will be stored. The battery will not discharge power.
3. If PV power generation is less than 100W and less than your electricity demand, the battery will supply power according to your specifications.
When PV power is not working, the battery will supply power to your home according to your specifications.
1. At noon, John's electricity demand is 100W while his PV power generation is 700W. Solarbank will send 100W into the grid through the microinverter. 600W will be stored in the Solarbank battery.
2. Jane's power demand is 600W while her PV power generation is 50W. Solarbank will shut down PV power generation and discharge 600W of power from its battery.
3. In the morning, Will's electricity demand is 200W, and his PV power generation is 300W. Solarbank will power his home through the bypass circuit and store excess energy in its battery.
- Total PV Voc (open circuit voltage) between 30V-55V. PV Isc (short circuit current) with 36A max input voltage (60VDC max).
- Your microinverter can match Solarbank's output specifications: Solarbank MC4 DC output: 11-60V, 30A (Max 800W).
- When PV power generation exceeds your demand, excess power is stored.
- For example, if PV power generation at noon is 800W and power demand is 200W, you can allocate 200W to discharge power at that time (do so in the Anker app).
- Anker SOLIX Balcony Solar Power System automatically regulates the wattage and will store 600W to avoid wasting electricity.
- That energy will be saved until you're ready to use it, even at night.
- Connect the solar bank to the microinverter using the supplied MC4-Y output cables.
- Connect the microinverter to a power outlet using the original cable.
- Connect the solar panels to Solarbank using the supplied solar panel extension cables.
- Connect the microinverter to a home outlet using the original cable.
- Connect the solar panels to Solarbank using the included cables. Refer to the manual for more info.
