Does VRM require a Victron Inverter to show AC loads?

I added RPi with VenusOS. So far it looks great but I don't know how how to get make use of these two boxes (AC input, AC output) given my inverter is Magnum not Victron. Is there a way to either 1) remove these boxes from the dashboard or 2) measure usage on Magnum inverter using a hall sensor?

I have SmartSolar MPPT , Orion-Tr Smart DC to DC and SmartShunt. So far I have only connected Smartshunt. I will connect the Solar this weekend once I make the cable.

Thanks in advance. I think it is just cool that Victron made VenusOS available to everyone.

No not necessarily. You can add a meter to the system andsee the information through the GX

Thanks! I didn't know there was such a product like that.
One small warning: I dont know if using such meter will result in the loads properly showing.


If they do: then you are in luck. If they don’t: then bad luck. And it wont be looked at or fixed.

Working with non-victron inverters is not something we design for.
