Where do I get a low voltage disconnect for my Solar Powered Pool Pump?
Hi all, I'm running a pool pump off solar, and when the voltage from the inverter dips below 115V the pool pump will shut off. It's a major problem for me because the pump will re-enter priming mode, which consumes too much power for the BMS and Inverter (~2500W Peak) too handle. This has happened on several occasions and resulted in popping circuit breaker connected to the BMS which was toasty to the touch. Luckily, the BMS wasn't toasted, though I had to reconnect the balance ledes to the BMS to output the correct battery bank voltage (~48V). However, I would like to prevent this from happening, and am trying to find some kind of low voltage AC disconnect. Even better would be a DPDT switch that automatically switches to grid power when the voltage is too low. I'm not sure if anything of this sort exists and would really appreciate any guidance on the matter.
