SmartSolar MPPT 75/15 & VRM

I've connected my SmartSolar MPPT with VE.Direct to a Venus GX and VRM. I have a DC load connected to the "Load" site of the MPPT and the Venus sees the load current in the Remote Console, but this is not logged in the VRM.


Is there a way to get the DC load readings in the VRM? Right now the solar yield in the VRM is net of the DC load on the MPPT. I tried enabling the "DC Load" in the settings, but this must be for another configuration.

As a general product suggestion, the Venus sees a lot of real time data that is not logged to the VRM. I hope this is on the VRM roadmap.

Did you enable the correct "widget" on the advanced settings in the VRM Portal? I believe it is "Solar Charger Load Output Current".

Thank you, I missed the little settings icon on the advanced page.

Thanks for the suggestion, I did find that data I was looking for in the CSV, so it is transmitted to the VRM app. In fact, it seems to have ALL information, which is great.

I do wish Victron would make more information available in the VRM dashboard, though.
