You don't have to have the panel, you can control all the functions from the gx device (I assume you mean can vu gx?)


I'm fact having the panel means that some functions are not controlable from the gx device, like on off inverter only charger only. Can only do that from the panel if ones present in the system

@Jwfrary thanks for the info ( yes the Canvu Gx- the new Cerbo was not availabe when i started buying last year ), i will be looking at upgrading batteries to Victron 2 v 200a i take it i will need a Ve BUS BMS for the M8 connectors on the batteries, is the DMC panel required? have read there is conflict then some features dont work? ( sorry if i should have started a new thread )

If your talking about the lithium’s then yes you will need a BMS which one depends on your configuration and needs.


digital multi control panel still not needed but you can have it if you want. But if you want to retain control from the online portal then don’t include one as it overrides everything. ( I fitted one on the last install some people find a switch comforting)

for BMS advice you might want to start a new thread!
