I have 2 ups systems, one is a 10KW apc ups, its a beast.
The one i have et up thought is a 6kw (4.8kw continuous) Socomec Sicom ups. This works of a 48v battery system, so I have configured 14 cells to give a 50v output and a capacity of about 7kwh, although i am only using around 5.5kwh of the capacity with the way ive set up the cells at high and low voltage.
It works very well as an emergency power supply, I havent had the time to do anything with it for a while, but it does work and will give me power if we get a power cut.

I have got a leaf battery from a 2014 model gen 2 cells, complete. I want to use the complete pack in a home energy recovery system to work with my solar pv and a ups.
Is it possible to connect a micro controller like an arduino or duinomite with can bus connector, Imwoiod definately use leafspy with an elm327 as an instant visual display to indicate the condition of the pack, but I would also like to use the same can messages for battery voltage, pack voltage and temperature sensors into an arduino to control the charge and discharge process.
The leafspy already knows what these messages are as they are already reading and displaying them.
I'd need to know what the can message addresses are to write them into code for the micro controller.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you. Anthony.
Did you ever successfully integrate into (assuming an off-grid) solar system (or maybe energy shifting GT scheme?) What UPS where you considering to operate at such high DC voltages?
