Hoi,


Can you connect the second mppt into the first (working port for mppt 1 ) usb port? Maybe bad usb port / hub


Had the same 3 weeks ago, i had a bad usb hub.

Ok I have both connected according to CCGX control Devices

(no longer not Connected)

Originally had one via USB 1 via VE Direct

Have tried to connect both via VE.Direct to USB interface cables

No Change

Attempted to use a HUB both to hub then hub to CCGX usb Port A or B

NO change

Tried a Powered HUB

Can Monitor Both Units on VRM & Via Victron Connect App

Should i see 2 PV chargers on the CCGX GUI Display

or a combined display of 2 calculated total of 2 inputs on 1 PV unit

Also Both connected at same Point to Batts yet 2 different batt bank Voltage Readings on Victron Connect & in VRM Dashboard
