REC-BMS, GX, Multiplus DVCC Firmware insufficient alarm warning

Hi and thanks for reading this.

I have a REC-BMS (Victron version) connected to a Raspberry PI3 with CAN-HAT running 2.60 which has worked very fine for some weeks. Tonight I connected a Multiplus 12/1600/70 via MK3-USB cable to the PI. I also have a BMV-712 connected via a VE.DIRECT cable using the same shunt as the REC-BMS.

All devices appear on VRM Remote Console and look fine. The battery charged to 14.2V just fine and current quickly tailed away to zero-Amps. After a short period of use, an Automatic Monitoring 'DVCC Firmware insufficient alarm: Warning' appeared.

My Multiplus is an 1906 model running firmware 209; could this too old for REC-BMS control? I see a Victron helpful stating 19xx model is supported. Also have two-signal lithium assistant running if that makes any difference.

Some VRM screenshots attached somewhere below.

Many thanks.

Daniël,

Thank you. Assume this means, as expected, my Multiplus is too old!

Many thanks.

Correct, so you'll need to use 2 wire BMS assistant, and are not able to use DVCC
