VRM Dashboard: Why isn’t bulk charging show toward the battery?

When bulk charging is in effect in Venus OS on Raspberry Pi 4 B with SmartSolar 100/20 MPPT system, the charging line is not animated toward the battery. Instead, the animated line is directed to the upper icon. Does this mean that either the Venus OS or MPPT are not properly configured? If so, what changes do I need to make?

This is a DC only off-grid system in which AC inputs and loads are not present.

What other components do you have in that system?

Is it only the MPPT? If yes, I think it won't show any more information on VRM. I guess you will at least need a BMV/SmartShunt.

Yes, currently only the MPPT. I’ll be installing a SmartShunt 500 tomorrow and I’ll report on the results. Thanks!
