Can I use an ABB energy meter with the Venus?

I have an ABB B21 Energy Meter on my mains supply. Can the Venus be configured to use this as the Grid meter and how?

Thanks

No, only the Carlo Gavazzi meters are supported in Venus.

Hi

The ABB B21 meter can also do RS 485 Modbus with all the registers as the ET 112.

I have a ET 112 installed on my PV inverter and it is working.

I can not find any information about the modbus registers on the ET 112 meter to see what the difference is between the two.

Or what is the default settings for the ET 112 to work with the Venus?

Can the Venus Firmware be updated to support the ABB meter?

Thanks
