BMS Control Setting under System Settings / System Status

I am remote so cant fully debug or investigate so need to understand if my understanding is correct. I believe that the VenusOS will provide the Solar Controllers charge enable status through VE.Direct or CanBus.

When I look at the settings it shows BMS Control as disabled. See below.

However the VE.Bus BMS is reporting "Allow to charge" and "Allow to discharge". See Below.

I would therefore have expected BMS Control to be Yes. This is driven by the dBus path

"com.victronenergy.system/Control/BmsParameters" within by dbus-systemcalc, but cant track down how it then sets within.


If using the Ve.BUS and having the "Allow to charge" and "Allow to discharge", should the BMS control be yes?

Up to 8 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 190.8 MiB each and 286.6 MiB total.

Further to this, looking at the solar charge controllers they are not reporting as networked, does this mean they are not in sync from a charging perspective either?
