When everyone is talking about cycling the batteries. How deep of a discharge are you talking about?
As stated above, I am saying to 80% SOC several times per week. And to perhaps 60% SOC on occasion.
Your Dealer may be SPS, and they are very good. BUT, please contact HUP directly, their Manual begs for users to contact them directly. They have been at this for a long time.
Also be absolutely certain to follow their guidance in the Battery Manual in measuring and RECORDING in your battery Logbook everything that they ask for. This will be needed for any Warranty coverage. AND, it is very good guidance for monitoring the health of the battery bank.
Have asked some other questions abovel
1. Where did the Temp Comp value -108 mV/C come from? Please verify that this is correct with HUP. 2. Ask about an EQ Voltage -- this is implied in the Manual, but please do ask.
YES, for whatever reason, Schneider CCs have a fixed 2% of Capacity as an EA value. The ONLY way to change the EA, is to LIE to the CCs about the Capacity of the battery bank, but this may need to be done.

That is not true that you can't adjust end amps. It might be a good time to read the manual
My understanding is it takes 30-60 reasonably deep cycles to get a new L.A. battery up to rated capacity. As Dave suggested, taking down to 50% a few times may actually be good for the bank (as long as it's recharged promptly).

As far as dealing with Conext 1 hr EQs there is an easy workaround that I don't recommend unless you closely monitor the SGs. My 80-600 controller (and I assume the 60-150) can have the Absorb voltage set as high as 64v. So after a good Absorb cycle but before Absorb ends bump up the "Absorb" voltage to your desired EQ voltage. You may need to extend the Absorb time limit.
