Hi @Advaith G N,

The USB port function of the Venus GX is the same as the Cerbo GX - and it is better documented in the Cerbo GX manual.

  • The USB port can be used for:
  • IMT Solar radiation, wind and temperature sensor
  • Zigbee Wireless RS485
  • GX GSM accessory
  • GX 4G accessory
  • USB hubs
  • VE.Direct to USB dongle
  • MK3 to USB dongle
  • Keyboard
  • USB GPS module
  • USB memory stick
  • USB to RS485 adapter (for compatible Energy Meters).

There is no support beyond that that I can think of (though welcome for others to improve that list).
