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 :)

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.

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?

I have also a need of monitor the load of different devices. To spend the money on a smartshunt for each load is not a realistic alternative due to the price and the fact that it is a little bit overkill. Would be great to know if there is anything in the release plan from Victron on this:-)

Hi @tschoeki

As of today, this customised individual consumers (and producers) data is not something that is supported.

It is a noted feature that has quite a bit of demand, so I hope to be able to update this post soon enough with some good news. I can say it is on the roadmap.
