Venus OS v2.86 released

Hi,

Released today. Beta aka candidate feed is unchanged: still v2.90~something.

All the best, Matthijs


Venus OS v2.86 released


  • Fix communication loss issues with EV Charger
  • MFD HTML5 App: Fix white screen Simrad NSX 3007, 3009 & 3012 MFDs
  • Add support for new Carlo Gavazzi EM530 and EM540 meters, sub-families X and PFC. Part numbers: EM530DINAV53XS1X, EM530DINAV53XS1PFC, EM540DINAV23XS1X, EM540DINAV23XS1PFC. For now, these mainly serve as an alternative for the EM24DINAV53DISX meter, not stocked by Victron, and the recommend meter for larger systems (> 65A per phase).
  • MPPT RS Fix issue with daily tracker history retrieval


Known issue:

  • Per Venus OS v2.86, EV Charging stations with firmware version older than 1.21 are no longer properly detected. The charging station will continuously appear and disappear. A new Venus OS version that fixes this, v2.87, is expected within a few days. Meanwhile as a work around, downgrade the GX device to v2.85. At this moment the system will work again. Now, using Remote firmware updates on VRM, update the Charging station. And thereafter update the GX device back to v2.86.

Hi all, yesterday we released v2.87.


One change only: fix the EV charge station known issue: comms issues between GX device and EV Charge Station when it is running older firmware.

Will this work on a Raspberry Pi 4 B?

Some of the very early ones, I expect so. Anything that is a revision 1.4 or above will not.

Thanks. I'm not sure which one I have ordered, but I'll guess I'll find out lol.

just an observation (may be OK, not sure!)

running 2.90~3 Large, I can go firmware/online updates/latest release candidate Large and comes up with 2.90~10, which is fine.

If change update feed to Latest Release search comes up with an error during checking.

Does that mean that once you are in release candidate you cannot go to release via the online route, is it temporary or related to large?

tbh not worried as I'll stay in the release candidate Large for some time I guess :-)

@Vassilis Bourdakis I suspect you need to set the Image Type to normal. The large image has only been built into 2.90.

Hi @dereppsteiner I don’t know when we’ll add the Mopeka sensors. Maybe still in v2.90; maybe not.


Right now we’re waiting for some sensors to arrive. Once they arrive we’ll need at least a few weeks, and depending on what comes out of testing maybe longer.

There is no beta test, at least not one organised by Victron. Sorry.

If you are going to put priorities on Mopeka sensors, also water and grey-level sensors are quite interesting together with the gas-sensors. But the water sensors seem a bit problematic to get hands on as both the Canadian and the European distributors either do not ship or do not have them in stock.

Auto update to V2.86 and Cerbo keeps rebooting. Rolled back to V2.85…..and it’s still doing it.

It is indeed. What do I need to do to enable this?

Nothing, I saw you have enabled it already (settings -> general -> remote support)

Hi, we checked briefly (more to come) and its actually not your Cerbo rebooting. Its the user interface (gui) that is crashing and then being restarted.


You are not running some modified version, right?
