In the recent Victron Connect beta ChangeLog I noticed the following firmware change for a VE.Bus Smart Dongle:
- Add firmware v1.12:
- Add support for VE.Bus BMS V2 (enables on/off/charger-only selection in combination with VE.Bus BMS V2)
And my question is what is the VE.Bus BMS V2? If I understand the description correctly it will be possible to turn off/on/charger only the Multiplus via the dongle, while using the VE.Bus BMS, which has been requested many times for years. Great news if true :)
I tried to upgrade the firmware on my Smart Dongle, but the option to turn on/off/charger only via dongle is still grayed out.
What am I missing please? Will I need to replace the VE.Bus BMS unit?
