Connection of a Zigbee architecture to a Venus GX

Hi All,

i'm studying the zigbee capabilities with a Venus GX and i'm stucked with some questions :

  1. For example so as to plug a RS485 meter. What will be the connection procedure? Zigbee/USB plugged to Venus GX and Zigbee/RS485 plugged to meter then do the configuration as per the manual?
  2. How many meters can be plugged from Zigbee/RS485 to Zigbee/USB concentrator?
  3. Can a Zigbee device as a Zigbee temperature sensor be synchronized directly to a Zigbee/USB concentrator? If yes, how many and will it be shown on the VRM?

Thanking you in advance for your return on that.

Ashley

Hi Ashley, there is only one use case for zigbee, and thats to wirelessly connect our energy meter to a GX device

No temperature senders work; and neither does anything else.

To the GX device, that usb zigbee device that you plug in for the meter is just like the meter itself: the GX device doesn’t know there is any zigbee involved.
