Hi, today I connected my Venus GX V2.42 to my NMEA2000 network by terminating an n2k cable to the CAN2 screw terminals and into the network backbone. I now have three devices vsible on the network from N2K Analyzer and also my Simrad MFD's.
Device 1 is Quattro - Shorepower data displaying AC Voltage, Freq, Current and Power etc
Device 2 is Quattro - Inverter data displaying AC Voltage, Freq, Current, Power & Battery V and I
Device 3 is the Venus GX - Displaying product data but not much else
I was hoping that I would also be able to access the following;
BVM7XX Battery Voltage, Current, SOC, Temp, Aux Voltage for each BVM on the system (I will have 2 or more)
Tank data / Digital Inputs
MPPT Controller Data (I have 2 on my system)
Lastly, my Quattro unit is Version 1.0 - does this need an update? I have experienced problems lately where the inverter output drops off for a period of time before coming back on. When disconnected from the Venus the unit seems to be stable.
Thanks for any assistance / advice you can provide.
