Multiplus II - AC Input suddenly 0 Watt on GX Touch 50 when connected but battery is charging


I have a strange error on my GX Touch 50 display.

I am using a MultiPlus II 48 V / 5000 / 70-50 Inverter and Pylontech batteries with a Cerbo GX and GX Touch 50 in one system.

Up to now all systems were working pretty fine. But this one system makes some mistakes.

Inverter is up to date (v481) and Cerbo GX too (v2.66).

When I just switch on AC Loads, then I can observe on my display the Watts which the system is using, see here:


But when I add AC Input (Grid), then suddenly both windows are on 0 W. Grid connection is also fine.

But looking at the battery its charging (990W). I don't get it. Settings are fine, used all the same for all the systems and in others it worked fine.


Also when I connect to that directly a cable (USB MK3) to the inverter and start VEConfig, I see in the monitor a number for watts..

Maybe someone could help me. Other systems I am doing exactly the same and are working and show me e.g. 1000 W Grid AC Input and AC loads (if I activate).

Thank you.

Victron Energy GX Touch 50 unresponsive

I just installed a Victron Energy GX Touch 50 in tandem with my new Cerbo GX. The touch screen was working fine but then I used the remote console. After that, the touch screen will only show the last thing I did in the remote console and is unresponsive to touch gestures.

Is this a known issue?

How can I get the touch feature working again?

Can I use a "Cerbo GX + GX Touch 50" instead of "Digital Multi Control 200 + BMV-700"

Hi, I am installing a new system with the core components being a Multiplus 12/3000 inverter/charger, 2 x LiFePO4 Smart Batteries (12V/200Ah) & a VE.Bus BMS. I have been recommended to include a "Digital Multi Control 200 + BMV-700", but I'm wondering if it would be better to replace those 2 items with a "Cerbo GX + GX Touch 50". I would like the ability to monitor/control things remotely, and I have read (in other posts here) that you cannot change any settings remotely (nor via the touch panel), that can be set via the physical switches on the DMC (which takes priority).

So my question is really, can you do everything via the Cerbo GX & Touch 50, thus doing away with the need for the DMC & BMV altogether?

REC BMS + Cerbo GX + Touch 50 [Touch 50 display is on but touch not working]

I've got the HDMI and USB cables from the Touch 50 plugged into the Cerbo GX and the touchscreen won't respond.

My REC BMS is also plugged into the Cerbo GX and there is the text "REC BMS" overwriting the text of the top left corner on the display.

Is there a setting I need to adjust to get these two to harmonize?

Cerbo GX touchscreen won't turn on Multiplus via RJ45 cable

My Cerbo GX touchscreen will not turn on the Multiplus via the RJ45 cable after I turn it off from the Cerbo Gx touch screen. It seems to lose the connection. With the multiplus in the inverter mode, If I manually disconnect the RJ45 cable and connect again, then I regain the connection and able to operate the Multiplus. Once I make that connection, I am able to operator the Multiplus from the Cerbox GX touchscreen and as long as I don't turn off the Multiplus from the Cerbo GX, it stays connected but once I turn off the Multiplus with the Cerbo GX, I lose the connection and can not turn back on the Multiplus unless I unplug the RJ45 cable from the Cerbo and re-connect. Any ideas on how to fix. I have re-booted my system several times, I have the most current firmware.

Testing Touch 50 is powered

DIY marine solar install. Trying to ease into initial startup on the DC side. Does the Touch 50 require the PV load to be connected into the system for the screen to light? Cerbo is connected to the battery bank for power to the Touch but the PV's aren't connected while I confirm the Touch is in the loop.

Multiplus - adjusting shore power limit

I expect to adjust the shore power limit on my Multiplus (3kva) fairly frequently.

Q1: Can I adjust the shore power limit using Victron Connect app & Cerbo?
Q2: Can I adjust the shore power limit using Touch 50 & Cerbo?

I am aware of the DMC, and how easy it would be to adjust the shore power limit using it, but would rather purchase the more fully featured Touch 50 over a DMC, if the Touch 50 supports this. And I would prefer to use the Connect app and not purchase either DMC or Touch 50 if the Connect app supports this.

Control Multiplus with GX Touch

As stated, from memory and towards the end of 2020, the ability to control a Multiplus 12/3000 via the GX Touch 50/Cerbo GX simply didnt exist.

Is this still the case, or has there been an update implemented that now allows this to occur? If so, does it also control current limit? Not that id want to adjust that anyway. And does it work with a Ve.Bus BMS installed?

How can I set up a manual switch on the Touch 50 GX to activate / deactivate a Relais on the cerbo GX


In would like to switch on the wate heater using an external Relais. This Relais should be activated by the internal Relais of the Cerbo GX. As this is possible i am wondering how i can get a ”switch” or icon on the screen of the touch 50 like the one for the fuel pump. I do not find it very Convenient that i need to go into the settings to activate or deactivate.

Ideally it would be shut off If a certain temperature is reached by using a temperature probe Connected to the cerbo.

Do anyone have an idea how to get this done?

No Analog inputs shown on cerbo gx.

Originally was showing temperature and tank options in menus. While installing resistive tank sensors the cerbo GX rebooted. now all analog options are blank. The tank over view page shows no tanks connected and no options for temperature sensors available. How can I get those items to show again? It seems like the cerbo GX hardware may have faulted out.

Solution to Cerbo GX Wi-Fi issue when having the GX Touch connected

Dear all,

This message is to inform about a Wi-Fi related problem in the Cerbo GX. Some Cerbo GX-es will not properly work on certain Wi-Fi networks when having a GX Touch display installed. If they do or not depends on the (channel of the) Wi-Fi network, and on how exactly an antenna cable inside the Cerbo GX ended up when manufactured.

Its obviously not good and I’m not happy with it, but it is what it is and you’re better off knowing all the details than not knowing them.

There are a few solutions, one is to simply send it back to your dealer; to have it repaired.

The other is to make the wifi network work on a one of a few specific channels; which don’t have the issue (details in the pdf)

And lastly, if you’re technical, you can fix it by opening the unit up and repositioning the antennas to make sure its cable is no longer close (or even touching) the hdmi connector or surrounding area.

Now, don’t get me wrong wrt the repair: you’re more than welcome to return it for repair. But still I chose to share the details of the repair as I can imagine that for some it will be the preferred option.

Lastly, my apologies! Especially to those who have spent a lot of time trying to find out why it wouldn’t connect to wifi.

And a big thank you to @WKirby who helped uncover the issue and even to find the solution. Warwick has been a great help in this.

All the best,

Matthijs Vader

Ps. All distributors and dealers have been informed about the issue via email.

GX Touch 50 stopped working (blank) after Tank 140 is connected

I have a Cerbo GX, GX Touch 50 and Tank 140 with 4-20 mA sensors connected to ports 3 and 4 on the Tank 140. My understanding is this should work using the USB connection to the Tank 140 as the power source.

I set it all up in May and the system worked for a few days, displaying tank information correctly and the GX Touch 50 provided the expected interface. Then the GX Touch 50 stopped working (blank screen, doesn't seem powered).

I returned the Cerbo on RMA and just received a new one. I commissioned it plugging in one device at a time (starting with the GX Touch 50, which worked when initially connected). After connecting the BMV-712 and Multiplus Compact (all okay), I then plugged in the Tank 140 and the Touch 50 screen immediately shut off and won't work now, despite reboots and regardless of whether the Tank 140 is connected or not.

From the web interface, the Cerbo otherwise seems to be working fine, and when the Tank 140 is connected I can see the tank data as expected. But the Touch 50 won't come back. Any ideas?

The only think that I've done since it was working is turn it off, unplug the connectors and reassemble everything. I also tried to connect to the local wifi using my iphone but it failed.
