-For units in parallel: Both the DC and AC wiring needs to be symmetrical per phase: use the same length, type and cross-section to every unit in the phase. To make this easy, use a bus-bar or power-post before and after the inverter/​chargers.+For units in parallel: Both the DC and AC wiring needs to be symmetrical per phase: use the same length, type and cross-section to every unit in the phase. To make this easy, use a bus-bar or power-post before and after the inverter/​chargers. Also, apply the same torque on all connections.
  
-For units in parallel: use one AC fuse for all units on that phase. Both on the input, ​and on the output. Multiple ​fuses which are mechanically connected together is ok: that is also one fuse.+With regards to AC fusing, each unit needs to be fused individually. Both on its AC-out ​and AC-in. Multiple ​circuit breakers ​which are mechanically connected together is OK: that is also one fuse. Make sure to use the same type of fuse on each unit due to same resistance.
  
-For DC, one fuse per phase is best. If a big single fuse is not available, use one fuse per unit. Same type of fuse due to same resistance.+With regards to DC fusingeach unit needs to be fused individuallyMake sure to use the same type of fuse on each unit due to same resistance

 +For both AC and DC fusing and protection, consult the product manual for details and recommended ratings.
  
 Beware of phase rotation between the inverter and AC in. When wired in a rotation that is different to the programming of the Multis, the system will not accept the mains input and only operates in inverter mode. [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start#​phase_rotation_warning|If a GX device is connected, it will signal a phase rotation alarm]]. In that case swap two phases to correct it, or re-program the units to match the wiring rotation. ​ Beware of phase rotation between the inverter and AC in.
