Multiple GX units Temp inputs

Does anyone know if the Temp inputs from a second unit (venus, cerbo etc...) will show on the CCGX and vrm? Like the multiple tank inputs do.

A) For in chapter 1.4 - Multiple GX Devices for increasing number of tank inputs

(or to be put in a separate chapter)

Introduction

The number of tank inputs of a GX Device, such as the Cerbo GX and the Venus GX can be expanded by connecting multiple GX devices together in a VE.Can network.

Make sure to designate one GX device to be the “main” one; and the other(s) to be the “secondary” one(s). There is no practical limit on how many can be used - most likely the number of source addresses on a VE.Can network is the limit, which is 252 addresses. A Cerbo GX, with 4 tank inputs, will use up 5 addresses: one for itself, and one for each tank input.

Hi @Alan,

I don't understand your question?

Each system can only have a single GX device.

Hi guy, as per the link I posted, since venusOS 2.6 additional gx devices can be installed as a slave in the 1 system.


One of the best features of Victron and probably the biggest reason I buy and recommend it over the rock solid reliability, is the continued expansion of venusOS and other Victron equipment.

It does however cause a lot of contradicting info in the Victron manuals/literature, I'm sure that it's a constant battle keeping it all up to date as best as possible.

Ahh true, I will need to update the manual to reflect that change - see Daniels answer instead.

Yes and thanks.

I really needed an answer as my client is waiting for this and I don't want to buy unnecessary equipment.
