Parallel 6No. 100/15 Bluesolar charge controllers to colour GTX?

Hi All,

I'm short of inputs on the colour GTX. Is it possible to parallel or bundle together all the outputs from my 6No. 100/15 Bluesolar charge controllers so that I only use one input on the colour GTX?

If so what bit of kit will I need?

Thanks in advance.

John

Theoretical it is possible to use an USB-Hub and VE.direct to USB cables.

But I would not recommend connecting so many VE.direct devices to a CCGX.
The CCXG is the oldest GX device with the slowest CPU and to much VE.direct devices are overloading the CPU, that will cause a slow interface and/or frequently restarts of the CCGX.

We had this problem in a 3-phase ESS with 5 MPPTs and a Can.Bus Battery.
We exchanged the CCGX with a Cerbo GX.
