-The lynx power in module is used to connect batteries via an external fuse. It can be useful if you have multiple parallel strings. Due the extremely high short circuit current potential of most battery banks, it is suggested to use an external fuse system with an appropriate fault current interruption rating (such as an NH HRC). +The lynx power in module is used to connect batteries via an external fuse.

-When all is OK, only the central led is green; when a fuse has blown (or is missing) the central and blow fuse circuit LEDs turn red. If you are not using all connection points in your DC distribution, it may be necessary to fit dummy fuses to extinguish the red LEDs.+When all is OK, only the central LED is green; when a fuse has blown (or is missing) the central and blow fuse circuit LEDs turn red.
