Hey guys happy to answer any questions about this. I've since added two additional house batteries to this setup (total of six), and have some parts to do active cooling of the charge controller (not yet installed).

Jupiter 2 Gen 5 on Solar! Watch out for power source

Post#4 » Fri Apr 20, 2018 12:58 pm

It has been brought to my attention that a solar converter can cause the modem's power brick to not function, if the power source is not a pure sine wave generator.

The symptom is that the little green light on the power brick doesn't light up and the modem doesn't get power.

Many lower-cost solar converters don't generate a pure sine wave, so check the specs on any you buy. If it seems like too good of a deal ... there may be a reason. ;)
