85 V solar panel to 12 V Deep Cycle Battery via 150V max MPPT unit
To start, I must admit I know very little about working with electrical current and batteries, less about using a multimeter and even less about solar panels. Now that I've gotten that confession out of the way, can anyone help me with my issue? I purchased a MPTT that has a 150V max rating. I checked the output of the solar panel using a multimeter (hopefully correctly) and believe it was giving me a reading of 85V which met the rated output on the solar panel. When I connected the solar panel to the MPTT and took a reading from the terminals that are supposed to go to the battery, I was not able to get a voltage reading. Any ideas as to my issue and what I was doing incorrectly?
