Completed Lv3 style PL8 LTO preset.Lv3 = Create your own new profile from scratch .. when modifying existing is not enough .. An extension/expansion of Lv2 just taken a bit further , to allow one to escape/change some of the 'safety' settings that might be part of Lv2 above , and are more limiting than you might want to be.
My thanks to those who provided me with programming assistance.
To those who are interested .. Unzip the attached file.
Any SoC to start .. Charge .. Discharge .. Cycles .. Data Log .. etc.
The PL8 firmware has to be updated to at least no older than version 3.35 .. this is available as a button in the free (with PL8) Charge Control Software , with Internet access.
Discharge should be done using regenerative discharge mode .. For lower voltage .. like one cell at a time , it has to be done in regenerative discharge mode.
You should use the cell level voltage node connection .. in additional to the main power banana plug connection .. even for just 1 cell .. But you can do 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, or 8 series set of cells at a time .. allows for cell level balancing through the 8 cell node.
IF the 8 being tested are part of a larger series string .. like my 48s LiFePO4 pack .. and IF you are using multiple PL8s at once .. Like I use 3 .. then each PL8 must have it's own (don't share one source among multiple PL8s) Source Battery to put regenerative discharge energy into and pull charge energy out of.
