When will VictronConnect on Mac support assistants?

Prior posts indicate Victron will not be making VE Configure available on Mac, and have also stated that their direction is to move the VE Configure functionality to VictronConnect.

Have just installed new Victron lithium batteries (plus VE BMS) on existing Multiplus-II/CCGX system and Assistant is required - seems like adding the Assistant this should be mainstream as all Victron gear and a common application?

As far as I know the plan is to fully replace VE.config with VictronConnect in the future but there is no public roadmap for that.

No Assistant required because of the VE.Bus BMS, if this your concern.

And as Matthias mentioned, you need to update the MultiPlus/Quattro to at least FW 489 for the automatic configuration for VE.Bus BMS.

Thank you Matthias and Stefanie for your prompt responses


I thought the MPlus had latest FW, but was still on an earlier release- result was that Mplus was looking for Assistant however, presence of VE BMS then prevented upgrade of FW via VicronConnect directly via MK3/USB(Error 25). Removing the BMS had no effect.

Managed to upgrade FW via VRM - hope this may help others..

Thanks again.

VC doesn’t support assistants on any platform. Veconfigure required.
