Changing the charge profile of older victron multiplus compact.

hi,


I have an older victron multiplus compact the board number is 1806132 hex. I'm trying to update or change the charge profile to accommodate lithium batteries. today i tried to connect the cable going in to the phoenix control panel to a MK3 to USB and then to my computer and the configure software. this was not working and did not direct the inverter/charger.


Does anyone have any idea on how to make this work or if it is even possible?


thanks

It is relatively inexpensive to change the board on older Multi's to the current version.

Basically, any older inverter/ chargers with a Pheonix logo on the front will only communicate with a Mk2 usb, not a Mk3. Can you borrow an older model Mk2 usb?

This (older) model is unfortunate not able to receive a firmware update. This is possible from firmware 19xxyyy.
