I have 2 energy meters Em24 one on grid and one on solar cells and no inverter. I get no solar yield on VRM
We use energy meters on their own as a precursor to installations. This allows us - especially on three phase sites - to meter in advance of designing and proposing solution.
We also use VRM on sites with only an MPPT and a Lithium battery for monitoring PV production and battery performance.
In both cases, the dashboard is a tad sparse, but it does the job and we get what we need.
@WKirby I will, however, draw your attention to my related comment on this post which I believe would be very useful to other installers: https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/43328/re-the-et340-grid-meter-and-a-gx-color-control-and.html?childToView=80507#comment-80507
This does not work without a Victron inverter. The energy meters are intended to supplement the Victron inverter and cannot be used randomly on their own.
