I only found out by accident as I was running them with a Sofar Solar ME3000SP unit.
Then I thought, I wonder if....
Set the Sofar Unit to Lead Acid and unplugged the RJ45.
And it worked !

I do know better Mostie but I wasn't willing to bet 1500 (US3000) on it, and if they can't get their own manual right what confidence have I?
They are a cheap source of LiFePO4 even if you skip the chassis and BMS.
Meh...CALBs suit my style more. Modular, versatile and non-proprietary.

Salesmen have their uses, imparting factual information is not one of them.

Remember the definition of a salesman (compared to an engineer)?  A salesman learns less and less, about more and more, until they know b*gger all about everything. Smiley

A salesman doesn't sell you what you want, but what he has in stock. Their primary role is convincing the customer it's appropriate.

I don't use bricks and mortar shops so much.
