Victron ccgx - head unit for a REC BMS

Our yacht is set up with 400 AH of lithium batteries. The batteries are charged using 800 watts of solar power through a Victron 100/50 MPPT. I have recently installed a REC battery management system. My plan was to monitor the batteries using a Victron ccgx. Unfortunately the Ccgx won’t recognise the REC BMS. As my MPPT is only a 100/50 model am I required to first of all power the VE Can network with the VE Can power cable. Would appreciate any help please.

Here is an updated wiring diagram for the Active 12V BMS and Q Series BMS showing your network connections. You will need to grab the REC BMS Victron user manual as well so you can configure the parameters and match the CANBus network speeds. Note the EOL terminator locations.

There is more info at: https://rec-bms-na.com/downloads/
