Whisper Generator 'OVER DC BUS' fault message not in the manual

I'm not sure how to ask my question.

I have this equipment, installed by the boat builder:

  1. Victron Energy Blue Power MultiPlus 12 VOLT 3000 VA 120 AMP charger inverter.
  2. MPPT Solar Charge Controller.
  3. Whisper Power Belt Driven Generator W-BD 3.5.
  4. The boat has a 47 HP Beta marine engine and two solar panels on the roof.

Item 3, the Belt Driven Generator, periodically displays a fault message that is not in the manual:


It happens when I run a 1600 watt clothes-washing machine. The boat builder told me the system would handle this.

I have asked two marine engineers, who are not sure what's wrong. I don't know the terminology nor the relative importance of things, so I don't know what questions to ask. So my question is very general: "Is this something that needs to be fixed? What do I need to know?"


Thanks in advance, and sorry if my question is incomplete. I'm doing the best I can. :)

Projet de développement d'une interface

Bonjour à tous,

J'explore Venus OS avec l'intention de développer une interface spécifique pour un voilier électrique.

1/ Peut-on développer sur Linux Debian ?

Venus OS peut être installé sous debian https://github.com/victronenergy/venus/wiki/install-venus-packages-on-Debian Est-ce recommandé pour développer plus confortablement ? Venus fonctionne-t-il correctement sous Debian ?

2/ Existe-t-il un module de simulation des équipements Victron, i.e. modifiant les données sur dBus ? Cela me semble indispensable pour intégrer. Le mieux serait un service avec des scenarii de données qui évoluent automatiquement.

3/ Apparemment, Venus OS utilise Grafana qui me semble parfait pour une belle interface, et même beaucoup trop riche pour ce que je veux faire...

Mais Grafana permet-il de développer des boutons de choix ou autres curseurs ?

Quel est la librairie GUI recommandée ?

Merci d'avance

Difference between Lynx distributor and Lynx Power is..

Is it correct that the only difference between the Lynx Power and the Lynx Distributor is battery monitor PCB (which requires the Lynx Shunt?)? I already have the BMV-712 and don't feel monitoring the fuses to be that useful. Thank you.
