Simp can still work, but then you also need the other eight slave modules from the pack and connect one to string 7 to 12 of each module.
Yes - you specify no of modules and overall Ah
Well, I do agree with you if the topic was about 6s modules.Yes - you specify no of modules and overall Ah
The main advantage over orion etc is you re-use just the tesla loom connectors and its PCB's (I get a good feeling using the tesla PCB, bleed resistors, monitoring etc vs 3rd party). Hence, sorry @oudevolvo I tend to disagree, but always good to hear more experienced for other projects - especially non-tesla batteries <<<here>> is simpBMS setup manual
This (as below) still seems simpler to me AND reuses the Tesla PCB's (page 19).Well, I do agree with you if the topic was about 6s modules.
However, the question is for 12S modified modules.
So if you insist in using Simp and the Tesla slaves you need to come up with a solution linking a Tesla PCB to the other six string.
So that's why I'd say for a 12S module using a third party BMS is more straightforward.
I think we need to ask Tom De Bree aka simpBMS and Zero-EV guru @Tomdb to sort this out. I trust him.Yes, agree again, simplicity is good!
So if you can use 6S modules it is preferred.
However for some reason (eg required voltage) one needs 12S in this case.
As I tried to explain, for 12S modules the manual page you show is incorrect.
Then it should say “Module with slaveS”.
Please do not use just the one single Tesla PCB on the module with Simp with 12S converted modules!! You will miss monitoring 50% of the module.
