ET112 + DTK DRF2659C + DTK DRF2658C ZIGBEE

Evening, There's little information on trouble shooting these devils.

I have a cerbo gx and an et112. Works perfectly using USB to RS485. However, I'm having no luck with the zigbee's.

1. Is there an alternative way to connect an energy meter wirelessly (another energy meter if necessary)? Modbus over TCP? I need 100amp energy meter.

2. What are the LED's meant to be doing in a setup that works. If it doesn't work out of the box, following the victron instructions... What can you do?

Many thanks for any help

Hi there,

I'm having the same problem.

Zigbee->USB: Active LED is solid blue, Tx/Rx LED does nothing (when pressing "function" button it blinks one, very briefly...

Zigbee->RS485: Active LED is flashing very fast, Tx/Rx LED does nothing, when pressing "Function" button three times, Rx/Tx starts blinking for a while, the stops.

So it does not work, as describes in short description and surely not "out of the box"

Does anyone has an idea?


Please to read :-)

Hi there,

I am sorry to repeat my usb zigbee experience one time more in more recent flow.

I am recently playing with usb-zigbee(2658c) and 485-zigbee(2659c) module to work with victron venus OS and ET340 and no success that connection appears on venus. I have tried usb-zigbee connected to PC and use DTK configuration software, that works well, I was able to change usb-zigbee to coordinator and than I got solid activity led. After 3x push function key on 485 I get it both connected and both usb coordinator and 485 as router was visible on DTK software, with possibility to adjust any parameters described in DTK manuals. But I do not have any response from venus, except I can see usb by lsusb in terminal, but no communication? What should be main parameters of these two modules to be recognized by venus ?

Best Regards, Hynek
