The Squirrel Pod is simply a more advanced version of the standard AC units. The difference is that they have additional hardware in them to allow (now or in the future) a second, third or up to 8 of the Squirrel pod controllers to be linked together. Each Squirrel Pod needs its own batteries, and is also connected either individually, or via a combined connection, to the customers’ fuse board.
They work in Parallel. This means that only the Primary controller has the CT clamps fitted, and the other units are all set to Subordinate working mode. This means the Primary unit is controlling everything, telling the other units to charge or discharge their batteries.
All the units both standard AC units or the Squirrel pod units are listed on the ENA Register with G100 certification.
