Can HLX3600 communicate directly with Balmar 614?

To avoid damaging the alternator when the BMS senses 100%SOC and shuts off charging, some sort of "dump protection" is necessary .  There are devices sold that sense the dump and shut off the alternator but I understand that the Balmar 614 has the ability to do that without needing an external device so long as a wired signal to the LiFePO4 battery "informs" the regulator that it is shutting down.  Can the HLX3600 BMS communicate directly with the Balmar 614?

Thank you for your interest in KiloVault HLX Batteries.

Currently, the HLX 3600 only communicates via Bluetooth to the HLX iT app.

The Balmar 614 looks like a very configurable unit. As long as it can be programmed to match the charging specifications in the HLX manual, it can be used.  Be wary of the built-in LFP charging profiles. There are plenty out there that are not HLX compatible.  In those cases, if available, use custom settings.

Thanks Again!
