Sizing for Lycan 5000 Power Box
Solar Panels for Lycan 5000
When connecting solar panels to your Lycan 5000, please keep in mind that the solar input open-circuit voltage supported by the Lycan works best at 60V-145V (with a voltage limit of up to 150V). The short-circuit current of each input should not exceed 21A, and the total power should not exceed 4400W. If your solar array requires use of both solar inputs, ensure that the voltage of the two solar inputs is the same.
We recommend using Renogy 320W solar panels; you can connect up to 12 of the 320W solar panels to the Lycan 5000. Refer to the connection diagram shown below.
Lycan 5000 Capacity Expansion
The Lycan 5000 has two internal Renogy LiFePO4 48V 50AH batteries. Only Renogy LiFePO4 48V 50AH batteries can be used when expanding the capacity of the Lycan 5000. Up to 6 additional batteries can be added on. The connection for the expanded setup is shown below.
