1) OS & Software
As I understand it, changing settings on VE.direct items can only be done using VictronConnect via USB or Bluetooth.
VictronConnect app only exists for iOS, MacOS, Windows, Android NOT Linux :-(
Windows & MacOS provide easy remote connection and VictronConnect via USB
So I am thinking to use a Windows SBC computer to be remotely accessed via TeamViewer or other.
2) VE.direct electrical connection
Considering only USB / Serial wired connection; no bluetooth.
VE.direct is not a network protocol but a point to point protocol and needs to be connected to Venus CCGX to get information into the CCGX.
VE.direct items need to be disconnected from CCGX then connected to VE.direct <-> USB adapter to use VictronConnect.
Some 74LSxxx tri-state buffer/gates could be used to flip the VE.direct serial data between CCGX and VE.direct <-> USB adapter
Any thoughts ?
