Sorry, I don't find that. The profiles in the module are (found under Services -> CAN bus profile):

VE.CAN & Lynx ION BMS (250 kbaud)

VE.CAN & CAN-bus BMS (250 kbaud)

CAN-bus BMS (500 kbaud)

Oceanvolt (250 kbaud)


Firmware version v2.18


The xControl unit from Panda is configured for J1939, producing 3 fast blinks and then pause on the diagnostic led. This unit is working, since it recently was there for configuration.

That's fairly old firmware in the CCGX, could you try to update to the latest FW release and then check again?

Thanks. Would you please complete with can bus profile, to be set in the Victron Colour Control. That is not found in the instruction.

Hi @saabjoakim I just updated the answer and Victron have just added this info into the online manual.

There is a dedicated instruction manual that includes all the setup requirements to connect a Fischer Panda generator to a CCGX;

The NMEA2000 CAN Bus profile should be selected.
