Temperature sensors "Disconnected"

Hi all

I can see 2 x Temperature sensors listed under Devices, but if I go remote Console, settings... then both shows disconnected, how do I get these configure/reporting.

assuming they are identified via the data cable thats configured between the VenusGX and Master Pylontech battery.

I can't see how I can connect those sensors to a Pylontech battery, which is pretty much a computer with a power and data/comm output via dedicated cables.

You do not need to connect temp senors to the Pylontech battery it share its internal temperature with the Venus and the Venus in turn to the SmartSolar via STS (Shared Temperature Sens) if I am not misstaken.

It means that the temperature sensors are not connected at the terminals of the Venus GX.
These particular device instances are not taking temperature readings from Pylontech.

You need to use these temperature sensors, the same type that comes shipped with MultiPlus.
