Communication ports on battery

img20220822140945.jpg

Hi there, these are the communication ports available on my 150ah LiFePO4 batteries (I have 2). Is it possible to connect the batteries to my 450/100 victron MPPT or my Phoenix 5kw inverter or will I need a cerbo GX?

Comms go through a GX but if it's an unsupported battery/bms there's no guarantee it will work.

You would also need to know the pin out for the CAN on your battery for H and L and maybe ground.

Victrons pin outs on the GX are here.
