Smart Battery Sense

If the Smart Battery sense is used can it be read by a Cerbo GX and therefore seen on VRM , i only want a way to see the correct Voltage at my Batteries , the Cerbo shows aprox up to half a volt higher on the VE Bus sumary Charge and aprox up to half a volt low Charge Controler Sumary but the variation amount changes depending if charging or discharging so its very frustrating when i have to physicly go out and take a reading with a multimeter . I have an Old style Blue Solar MPPT with the screen and 4 buttons so cant cuple it to that .

The Smart Battery Sense does not communicate with a CerboGX, it's designed to work with the Bluetooth MPPTs ans IP43 charger.
Depending upon which VE.Bus device you have, maybe it has a Vsense port on it and you could get battery terminal Voltage that way?

Or I believe you can install a temp sensor directly on the Cerbo?
