I noticed in a post of couple of years ago that both the BMV-712 and CCGX were needed in order for the CCGX to monitor the battery. Isn’t it true that this is no longer the case? With the release of the SmartShunt, there is no need for the BMV-712 as the SmartShunt can be connected directly to the CCGX via VEBus. I still see some installers installing both devices but my thought is that you only need to do that if you are NOT using a SmartShunt. Can anyone confirm this? I have the SmartShunt & CCGX combo and don’t see where a BMV-712 gives me any additional capability.
I hope the installers are not doing it out of habit if its not necessary.
