Dual 702 on 1 Venus GX

Hi

I have 2 house/service battery banks (PORT and STAR) 5 meters apart. I have put in place 2 x 702 BMVs. I have had the first (STAR) up and running for some time. I have the second 702 up and configured but not defined in the VENUS as yet. I understand from answer related to another users question that only one can be defined as the systems main BMV (and that this unit will be used for the display.)Their question was in relation to a system battery (Start) environment. I my case these are on the same interconnected bank. Can these both be defined and displayed?

Thank you

Could you please post a diagram of your system wiring?

Hi @Enya,

See here for the setup required for multiple battery banks - https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#battery_state_of_charge_soc

You will be able to see the state of charge of both banks from the GX device menu, but not from the overview screen.

If you are viewing the system from another device, then you should look into the alternative HTML5 display mode. This is commonly used and designed for Marine MFD's, where multiple battery banks is the norm. You can access this display of your system by visiting http://Venus.local/app when you are on a phone, tablet, or computer that is connected to the same local network as the GX device. Or you could also get/use and MFD as intended.

More info about that interface here - https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#marine_mfd_integration_by_app
