check out alarms
the manual also suggests
R G R G R G _ _ Internal thermal sensor of charger fault
R G R G R G R _ Communication interface fault
―_‖ denotes one second stop
Above LED flashing sequence is just one cycle, the LED will flash repeatedly when
The Orion BMS has two separate CAN (controller area network)interfaces.Both
interfaces have a programmable frequency (baud-rate)and can be used independently
The BMS features up to ten programmable CAN messages which are fully
programmable and can be programmed to transmit on either or both CAN interfaces.These
messages are designed to be flexible to be used to interface with other electronic control
units,computer systems,display clusters or any number of different devices.Virtually all BMS
parameters are able to be programmed into these CAN messages.Please see the “Editing
section of the Software Utility manual for details on programming custom CAN
In a CANBUS network there are always exactly two terminator resistors.It is up to the
user to ensure that there is the proper number of terminator resistors on each CAN network.
By default,the Orion BMS has a terminator resistor already loaded on CAN interface #1,
however CAN interface #2 does not have a terminator resistor loaded.This is done by
default so that the standard unit can be used whether or not a terminator resistor is necessary.
If specified during ordering,a different combination of terminator resistors can be provided (for
example,both interfaces with or without a terminator resistor.)
The CAN interface is also used to upload settings and update the BMS firmware.While
the settings (also known as battery profile)can be updated from both interfaces,code firmware
updates to the actual BMS can only be performed over CANBUS interface #1 .Firmware
updates may be necessary to add additional future functionality.
