The instructions that came with my new EarthX battery had very poor instructions for connecting the BMS lead to my Skyview EMS.  Here are the correct configuration settings, which were sent to me by Skyview Tech Support:

1) Connect the EarthX fault monitoring wire to any unused General Purpose input (type = A or C) on the SV-EMS-220. (Pins 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 20, 21, 22, 23, or 31)

2) Configure the input in the EMS SETUP> SENSOR INPUT MAPPING.  FUNCTION = CONTACT, SENSOR = CONTACT, NAME = EARTHX (select CUSTOM and enter a suitable name)

3) Configure the EARTHX CONTACT in EMS SETUP> SESNOR SETUP.
    ALARM = SELF-CLEARING
    MAXIMUM GRAPHICAL DISPLAY = 5.0 VOLTS
    MINIMUM GRAPHICAL DISPLAY = 0.0 VOLTS
    RANGE 1
          ENABLE = YES
          NAME = ALRM
          COLOR = RED
          TOP = 1.0 VOLTS
          BOTTOM = 0.0 VOLTS
    RANGE 2
          ENABLE = YES
          NAME = (NOT SET)
          COLOR = BLACK
          TOP = 5.0 VOLTS
          BOTTOM = 1.0 VOLTS

Ranges 3, 4, and 5: ENABLE = NO

4) Place the EARTHX CONTACT widget on the 100%, 50%, and 20% EMS screens using the EMS-SETUP> SCREEN LAYOUT EDITOR

Under range 2 NAME = (NOT SET) does that mean not placing leaving that area blank?

Yes leave it blank or you will have (NOT SET) displayed in the contact.
