VRM portal MultiPlus 12/3000/120 16 AC/OUT

My installation is on a boat:

2x 110AMP batteries as "house bank" (bank 1)
2x 110AMP batteries as "Starter battery and bow thruster" (bank 2)
The batteries are: Lucas LX31 110ah Leisure Battery
The two banks are connected via a Cyrix-ct 12/24V-120A (CYR010120011).

Connected to bank 1 are the following:
One BMV-702 (BAM010702000R) with 3x 160Watt solar panels
One SmartSolar MPPT 100/50 (SCC110050210)
One MultiPlus 12/3000/120-16 (PMP123020001)
One Venus GX (BPP900400100) (https://vrm.victronenergy.com/installation/36369/share/820f64ab)

Connected to the Venus GX are the following:
BMV-702 (BAM010702000R)
SmartSolar MPPT 100/50 (SCC110050210)
MultiPlus 12/3000/120-16 (PMP123020001)


My question:
On the VRM portal and Venux GX I only can see the "AC Loads".
But the MulitiPlus has two AC OUT. And I have both AC OUT in use.
Is it somehow possible to see the use on AC OUT 1 and AC OUT 2 instead of only "AC Loads"?

The Multiplus AC out 2 will only be active when connected to 'shore power'. I have never used my AC out 2 so I cannot comment on the output being displayed on the Venus GX. I would expect it to be totaled up with AC output.

@treejohnny: I think you have right.

Another reason you may want to connect loads only to AC2 (Gen/shore) is that you want to protect the amount of draw on the battery(s) notwithstanding that the inverter may be able to draw the full 3KVA. I have a remote panel to limit this depending upon whether I am on shore or Gen (4.5 kVA).

The AC loads at the total loads The rvm does not report AC2 out separtatly

The AC2 out can also be used when you run the generator, thus you can setup heavy loads to run on the Gen that maybe greater ther the inverters output

also re your outer post the Venus GX will also allow you to autostart and stop the generator


re the NMEA 2000 there is currently beta firmware out you can install it if you wish its a selection when you do a firmware update
