    Default Wiring diagram

    Does anyone have a link to a wiring diagram or similar that might include the following:

    Solar panels
    charge controller
    batteries
    generator
    inverter
    transfer switch
    system monitor w/shunt
    1 12v circuit for a water pump

    Thanks!

    Sounds pretty Custom to me. I think you are going to have to get into more detail on your goals and the specs for the system parts.

    I did a Google on 'Solar wiring diagram' and came up with a lot of different
    diagrams that were just 'parts' of the total system, (per your list).

    One item that you need to spec up front, is this off-grid, back-up or grid-tied?

    I installed a similar set up at my family's cabin. There are a few differences, but it may get you started in the right direction. I would not use my diagrams as is, but compare them to other diagrams and understand why each diagram is different (why use a GFP or bus bars, etc...).

    The main differnce is that I'm running 12V LED lights instead of a 12V pump. Also, I haven't wired in a battery monitor yet (that's a summer project). Pending the size of your system I'm sure someone can come up with an elegant way to convert higher voltage battery banks to 12V.
