No LED on Lynx shunt and distributor yet power is going through to system

My system has been working fine until five days ago (according to VRM) I have power to the system, with everything functioning except the lynx shunt and lynx distribution led are no longer on and the shunt cannot be seen on cerbo gx or vrm. Any ideas?

Lynx smart shunt fuse?

I don't understand why you need this fuse. If using the lynx power in, then the lynx smart shut hooked to the lynx power distribution box. The power in box connects the batteries then the smart shunt to monitor solar charging from the power distribution box. The power distribution box requires fuses on all the positive connections, both the solar and the positive cable powering the inverter. Isn't the fuse required in the smart shut redundant when you already have fuses at the lynx power distribution box?

800 amp 24v battery bank with 1600 watts of solar powering the MultiPlus-II_24V_3kVA_2x120V inverter.

Lynx Shunt SOC does not match consumed amp hours

Just got new Lynx Shunt, and a new battery setup. The battery bank was charged to 100% SOC before shunt was set up. The Lynx Shunt has been set to a battery capacity of 250Ah. The system has been left alone for a few days with a low load on it. Now the shunt reads 92% SOC and 38.4 consumed Amp hours. But, with 38.4Ah consumed from a battery with 250Ah SOC should be 84.64%, right? What did I miss here?

Monitoring Lynx distributor without lynx bms

Is it possible to monitor lynx distributor (fuses status,etc) without lynx BMS but with a Lynx Shunt connected?

i will have lithium batteries with integrated bms and i will not need a Lynx BMS but i will iconnect the battery bank (pylontech batteries bank) to the Lynx Shunt directly. I see that Lynx Shunt connect with GX device via Ve.can but i doubt if lynx shunt send lynx distributor status to gx device too.

Lynx Distributor Red LED - But Fuse Not Blown.


Hoping I can get some help here, I am installing 2 new Multiplus-II in parallel system and all seems to be working well except i get all LED lights as red on the lynx distributor when I have AC power on and the inverters are charging. I have tested all the new fuses just via continuity test and the batteries are getting charged.

The even stranger thing is this: When I put the 120x2 3000 12v 50a Multiplus in standalone operation, they light will be green, then turn red after a period of time, then green again, but as soon as I put them in parallel and they are both charging the batteries from AC power, the led's on the lynx distributor stay red.... I have the battery protect connected to one slot on the lynx, 2 inverters (multiplus-II) each in its own slot, and the final slot is taken up by my BIM to chassis battery/alternator. The batteries are connected to the Lynx shunt via the end posts (where most people would connect the lynx power in). All the components have shutoff switches in between them.

Any help in understanding the Red LED's when under load would be greatly appreciated. As soon as I turn off the load the led's go off, and only the one green in the center of the distributor is lit. The lynx shunt stays green in any scenario.

Update - Even in standalone when the lynx distributor is under load the lights turn red. I have taken everything back apart and verified every connection but no matter what, under load, I get red lights on the lynx distributor. @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager) - Either load from chargers or load from the coach, ie when I turn on a microwave and a heater, it happens every time. I have ordered another lynx distributor to see if maybe it is a hardware board fault? I can't think of anything else it would be... Thanks for any advice in advance.

I have raised this with my retailer (CR for multiplus, and another company for the lynx) and they stated they would open a ticket with Victron, but have heard anything. I think this is an odd one, but maybe Victron staff have ran across this before?

Lynx Distributor Fuse LED red

Is there any update on the Lynx Distributor Fuse light LED issue? 1 of the 4 slots for the Mega Fuse was empty, so the LED correctly lit up red for that slot. Today I just added a Orion 24/24-17 charger with a 50A fuse. As soon as I added the fuse, the red LED for that slot turned off as expected, and the LED in the middle of the distributor turned green. A few minutes later I noticed that the red LED lights were on again.

I checked the fuse, and it was not blown.

Do I have to reset something here to get the red LED’s to turn off?

Installing Lynx system

I am planning on replacing old shunt and reconfigure wiring on my boat. I currently have four 210ah Lifeline AGM batteries that I would like to rewire into a Lynx Power In along with the 1000 amp Lynx Shunt and a Lynx distributor. How do I determine the fuse size for the shunt?

Lynx shunt not displaying DC consumption

Have recently replaced a BMV712 with a Lynx shunt.

Can I replace the VE Can Terminator with the NEMA2000 adapter cable

Currently I have my Lynx Shunt connected to my Cerbo GX via one of the VE Can RJ45 ports, with the other port terminated with the provided blue terminator plug. Can I replace the terminator plug with a NEMA2000 adaptor or will I need to put the terminator plug in one of the other RJ45 ports?

The other end of the NEMA2000 adapter will go into a SeaTalk/NEMA2000 block with has a terminator in it so I am guessing I can do away with the terminator in the Cerbo GX altogether.

Victron Lynx Shunt not found on Cerbo GX

I have installed a lynx Shunt to the right of my power in and before my distributor. I have a cerbo GX and have the ethernet cable from victron and the termination plugs installed. I can't get the shunt to show up in my cerbo GX screen. It can see both of the MPPT's. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Lynx Shunt Issues

Hi All,

System working fine, and suddenly Lynx Shunt is no longer reporting the correct SOC and other info. Even the infographic is showing a feed going into batteries in the middle of the night and AC is showing a load of 96W which has always been the same as its a fridge running.

Also in devices menu, the VRM instance number is showing as 0, for all other installations its showing a number like 276 or similar. See image attached.

Had to change the battery monitor from Lynx Shunt to the Multiplus Inverter/Charger in console settings.

Any ideas on what might be wrong? faulty Lynx Shunt?
