Can Phoenix Smart chargers be remotely operated via Venus GX?

I have 2 ea Phoenix Smart chargers in which I am going to connect to my Venus GX in my boat. Can those two chargers then be rwmotely controlled via the VRM online portal? More specific, set parameters and toggle chargers on/off?

Will the two Smart chargers appear like devices on the app as the BMV-712 and the MPPT below?

Hi @mmosberg,

if you are referring to the Phoenix Smart IP43 series, then the answer is:

  • remote on/off via VRM or remote console = No
  • device settings via VRM remote console = Yes
  • when connected via VE.Direct cable to your GX device, they will appear in VictronConnect devices just like your BMV and MPPT.
