I am running 6 Volt Modules in Parallel (each module being 24S, or 4kWh), directly connected.

And it's a very basic, direct system - a 700 amp logisystem controller and not much else. Nothing fancy, my only readouts are pack voltage (analog) and pack amps.

Your controller would be a nice safety device.

I am also without any BMS.... I would need 6x 24s BMS to monitor/protect the whole pack. Wouldn't it be nice if your safety device was also a 24s BMS!!! I'd be saving for 6 of them...

It is still a work on progress...

In the meantime get 6 TPL-BH fuses (170VDC 200A).
Connect one to each of your positive battery terminals.
Then connect the other side of the fuses together, this will be your main power distribution bus.
Thank you Wolf... I will look into those.

I believe that the stock Volt BMS will work for your system, since it monitors each block individually.
OK that's really interesting. I guess I can try to find that online.... BUT do you know if it was originally integrated into the Volt Battery Pack itself??? or was it part of the car? Because I have one complete pack. When I took it apart, I just put the extra parts (head, cables etc.) in a box. And I'm really not sure how I would get that going... but I would really like to if I can.

Thanks,
-Ocean

There is a 5pk on ebay for $27.50 :)
Search for "TPL-BH"
...
This is the BMS that sits on top of the battery module:
Cool.. I actually found those same fuses and asked the guy if he could make me a six pack for $30.

So that thing is actually a BMS? I have quite a few of those! You think I can just "plug one in" to the top of one of my modules and it balance the cells?
