CCGX with other brand BMS

Hi, All

I have 2 LFP batteries connected to victron easy solar all in one. The battery has its own BMS but not in victron LFP lists. Battery BMS only has 485/232 port and does not have Can port. Just wonder how can CCGX communicate with BMS and using BMS parameter to control battery charging and discharge, genset remote start.......... Many thanks

Thanks. The battery is from EVE China and has not been tested with victron device, Just wonder how it can talk with CCGX through modification or sth..... I do not think someone used that battery before. So just image a nobody BMS has 485/232 port and would like to CCGX.

If you know what parameters are published on serial port maybe an arduino with CAN HAT can translate what is needed to CCGX in order to integrate.

Hi, MihaiR I am not quite familiar with arduino device. Do you know what chips should I buy and what parameters should I know on the serial port? Many thanks

I think for this you should have a look at the modification area.
