Monitoring individual consumers with Cerbo GX

Hi community :)

Today I came across the SCQ25 QUADRO DIGITAL SHUNT MODULE from SIMARINE (https://simarine.net/product/scq25-quadro-digital-shunt-module/) This module can monitor up to 4 different consumers like AC, fridge, etc. to monitor their individual loads on the system. So, I was wondering - is there is any solution from or that works with the Victron Cerbo GX?

Could find any topic in the forum so decided to ask right away :)

I have a BMV-712 with a VE-direct cable to a Cerbo GX and a couple of Temperature sensors and I would love to have a Monitor to show the loads of a few devices and save them via the Cerboto to VRM. Any chance there is something coming?

Hi @tschoeki,

one way to achieve this is to have a BMV/Smart Shunt for each load you want to measure individually. This works out of the box, but is more on the expensive side.

Another approach is to use a Raspberry Pi or Arduino and set up hall effect sensors to measure current from your devices.
