Integration between Color Control GX and Sodium Battery 48TL200

Hello, i want to integrate the Color Control GX with my sodium batteries (Fiamm 48TL200), but, unfortunately the Collor Control GX does not support this batteries BMS, i want to develop the support. There's some tutorial or some kind of documents i can use to do this integration?

Good Afternoon,

Have you achieved the development of the support you mentioned? I have the same system.

Hey both, actually I have good news for @lucashubner; we do have an implemented driver for the Fiamm FzSonick batteries.

After implementing it; demand was limited; and we have not gone further with announcing it and/or documenting it. For details please contact https://www.innovenergy.ch/

There are some documents, but not yet a clear step by step procedure. Perhaps you can keep track of your research and come back and post one :)

A good place to start would be this similar question, it states clearly Victron's position at the moment, and also some other users success using the available tools.

Hi Victron,

@mvader (Victron Energy), @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager)

We have been using the code and implementing Victron connected to the FZSoNick battery with success. Is there any thing we can do to continue the support with this configuration?

Hello everyone!

My name is Valentin Silvera and I work at Itaipu Technological Park. In recent times we have been working with sodium nickel chloride Fzsonick 48TL200 batteries and used Victron products to integrate with the electrical grid. Even one of our projects was posted on the Victron blog (https://www.victronenergy.com/blog/2020/04/14/brazilian-electricity-regulatory-agency-trials-salt-batteries/)


Although in the current firmware version of Victron's controllers the drive to work with sodium is already available, it is necessary to make some previous configurations.

We developed some improvements in the drive and we would like to know how we could make it official so that it becomes available to all Victron controllers. We would also like to make a configuration manual for this technology and find out if it is possible to post this information on some official Victron site.


Our intention is to facilitate and disseminate the use of sodium battery, a green and safe technology!


@mvader (Victron Energy) and @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager), do you think this are possible?

Hey @valentin silvera, this msg is just a note that your message reached me; I’ll send you an email; might be next week.

Hi all,

From the message trail above it is not clear to me if the FZSonick 48TL200 is now integrated in to the Venus GX controller by default, i.e will the controller be able to communicate with the 48TL200 BMS via RS485 or VE.Bus, or if further development is required?

Some messages above indicate that this has now been implemented, but others state the opposite.

Thanks in advance for providing clarity on this.
