Difficulties Connecting Netgear AC1200 to WiFi Service

Hello. Is anyone else having issues with setting up the Victron-approved long range range WiFi module - Netgear AC1200 onto the Color Control?
We have installed 5 or 6 now on CCGX's and really struggle to get them working. On the WiFi menus screen it just shows 'No Wifi Adapter'
Is there a required process?
What CCGX firmware is required? I thought the module may be supported straight away by recently purchased CCGX.
Actually surprised to find no related topics here! Appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks, Owen.

Quattro not calcualting SoC

I have a system with 3 single phase Quattro 24/3000/70-2x50 that create a 3phase system. In the AC In 1 is connected the grid and in the AC Out 1 are connected the loads. The Battery of the system is an LFP Smart 25,6 200Ah and the whole system is monitored by a CCGX device. The problem is that the Quattro inverter doesn't calcualtes the SoC of the Battery and therefore is not displayed on the CCGX (always remains 0%). In the CCGX device is selected the Quattro as the Battery Monitor.



What causes that problem?

Measuring energy from single-phase PV Inverter on the second phase of Energy Meter

The Victron Energy Meter Manual for the EM24 RS485 states:-

Single phase dual function

If you are considering using a 3-phase meter in a single-phase installation to measure the grid on one input of the meter and the PV inverter output on another input of the energy meter, use the ET340 instead"

Is that because the EM24 counts total power, with net differential readings from each phase cancelling each other out, whereas the ET340 counts energy on each individual phase and then sums those values?

Also, the EM24 FAQ says "Attempting to use other brand battery inverters and trying to substitute their lack of data connectivity to the GX device by using Energy Meters will not work as expected"

My system was installed with an EM24 doing exactly that. Has that now been deprecated and it is no longer possible to set an Energy Meter as a dual "Grid + PV invertor" function anymore?

VRM shows 0W PV Power, Grid shows only Critical Load not whole house consumption


In November 2022, VRM started showing ‘AC Loads’ as 0W and ‘Total Consumption’ & ‘Grid’ displayed only the Critical Load, rather than the figures for the whole house.

My Solar PV was fitted 5 years ago by a Victron dealer who has since gone bust and now the only Victron agent in Kent wants £780 to look at it. He told me to update the CCGX firmware from v1.74 to version v2.92 which I did (with trepidation) but I think this has made my situation worse.

Until this week, I knew nothing of PV systems, so please allow a little latitude while I try & explain;-


I believe i have a HUB 4 system, now known as ESS. It comprises: CCGX, MultiPlus Compact 12/1200/50-16, 3 x Lead Acid batteries, 2 x Solis PV Invertors and an EM24 energy meter. The EM24 is linked to the CCGX via Cat5 cable, but I think it is a serial model with an RS485 to USB interface hidden behind the CCGX.

The CCGX Settings (firmware v1.74) contained ‘Wired AC sensors’ and the EM24 appeared as “BQ21600350013” where it was set to ‘Grid meter + PV inverter’.


In firmware v2.92 there is no ‘Wired AC sensors’, but the EM24 appears under ‘Energy Meters’ but can only be set to ‘Grid meter OR ‘PV inverter’ (not both). The Phase type ‘Single Phase’ and ‘PV inverter on phase 2’ with ‘AC Input 1’ have been carried over from the previous firmware.


Whatever I do, I cannot get the EM24 to appear in the CCGX ‘Device List’. I think it is Modbus RTU (different to’ Modbus TCP’) but in desperation I enabled ‘Modbus TCP’ in ‘Services’ and scanned but of course nothing was found. Help! I am really out of my depth.



All I know is that VRM displayed accurate Grid and Solar figures up until November last year and no hardware has been changed. The EM24 local display is still showing the Grid on L1 and the PV Invertors on L2 so my theory is that an automatic CCGX update to v1.74 lost the connection with the energy meter and upgrading to v2.92 has not helped.



I have found that Victron now say “using an EM24 to measure both Grid and Solar PV on a single-phase installation does not work properly”, and they recommend using an ET340 instead. Is that because the firmware does not support the EM24 anymore? If so, what version of firmware will I need to downgrade to, in order to restore VRM back to reading correct Grid and Solar figures?

Lastly, am I doing any harm running the system without a Grid/Solar meter? I know it is still saving me energy because on a recent bright day, my smart meter was showing 0 watts and the EM24 had a negative figure on L1), I don’t think the solar battery was charging.

Victron Multi RS Solar 48/6000 connect to VRM (CCGX or RPi)

Hi everyone,

Can someone give a bit more clarity on how to bring the Multi RS in VRM?

The manual is... limited in this regards.

I have a CCGX (on my existing quattro installation) and just bought a RaspberryPi on which I installed VenusOS and I also purchased a MK3 adapter.

From what I can tell, only VECan is available on the Multi RS, but when I connect to CCGX it won't show anything. Do i need the little RJ45 end plugs (which didn't came with any device...) ?

What would I need to connect it to RPi?

Replaced GX device in VRM, data not transfered to new installation, old installation still there
  1. 8D07C324-330A-45DF-91EA-8D92E03E8234.pngI’ve added my replacement GX device (Cerbo) to VRM, then had 2 installations.
  2. Went to the old installation (CGX) in VRM and selected the new installation to “Replace the GX device of the installation”
  3. Entered the name of the Old Installation to confirm.
  4. VRM greys out.
  5. Can scroll up and down but nothing else.
  6. After 5 minutes still unresponsive kill the VRM app.
  7. Rebooted Cerbo.
  8. Old data not transferred.
  9. Old Installation still showing in VRM.
  10. Go into VRM and old installation shows attached (formatting seems to have got messed up).

Is VRM borked?

Multiple Tank 140 to CCGX


Can I connect multiple Tank 140 to a CCGX. How many Tank senders would the CCGX recognise ? The CCGX has two USB inputs, meaning 2 Tank 140 ? or can I connect more via a USB hub ?

The question is answered for the Cerbo GX, but is the CCGX the same ?

CCGX Firmware update over v2.18 results in stuck at Victron Boot Screen logo

Hi all,

I'd like to update the fimware of the CCGX unit in my EasySolar 24/3000/70 to the latest version.

Anything over v2.18 results in the CCGX being stuck in the Victron logo Splash screen on boot.

I tried updating it via Wifi, the SD card via the 3 button boot menu procedure and with and without the CCGX connected to anything as suggested here.
Tried replacing the USB cable aswel to no avail...

The SmartSolar and Multi plus units inside the EasySolar never gave me any issues and I could update them to their latest versions.
(Currently both running on the latest stable release candidates.)

With v2.18 running the CCGX sometimes looses all readings on the SOC and/or spontaneously reboots.

I'd like to update the CCGX to the latest version (v2.98), any idea's what I might have overlooked or can try?

Thanks in advance for your input !

CCGX, EasySolar II and Pylontech

Hi all.

Salesmen have sold a job that I'm a little unsure about on paper. Have a 3kW EasySolar II with Pylontech setup (straightforward as have done many of these), alongside this though is a separate Colour Control GX device which will be situated in the living area of the home to allow for easier monitoring of the system.

Having a read through the manual I noticed it mentions difficulties setting up the CCGX if using VE Bus managed batteries. However with Pylontech being BMS Can, I'm just curious if it will be as simple as running a VE Bus and power cable from the EasySolar II out to the CCGX, standard VE Can to BMS Can on the battery and away we go as per usual? Or if there is anything else that might cause me some hiccups?

Cheers in advance.

Victron Color Control GX compatibility with LG Chem M4860P2S and Victron Quattro

I would like to replace a faulty controller (Blue Hybrid Energy controller) IMG_0550 conv.jpeg in an existing system that has been in operation for 5 years. The system has Victron Quattro inverters IMG_0551 conv.jpeg and LG Chem batteries IMG_0554 conv.jpeg IMG_0545 conv.jpeg.

The system also has a generator and air conditioning that needs to be controlled by the controller IMG_0548 conv 1.jpegIMG_0553 conv 1.jpeg

The idea is to replace the existing controller with Victron Color Control GX. Issue is compatibility with existing system.
