FeatureRequest: EasySolar2 GX & MP2 GX 2x16 Display Customisation - Show Tanks & Temperature Sensors On Built-In 2x16 Screen (For Offline Use)

Hey Everyone,

I dont think what we need can be done, so asking on here to double check and maybe get some upvotes in the hope Victron add to their dev list.

Open to suggestions for possible DIY modifications, if that is possible, but would prefer to avoid modifications to Victron GX products under warranty.


Snip below is from ES2GX manual - GX Device Display - lists no possible options for customisation

[image]

I have 2 client systems, both are mobile systems in RV's utilising a EasySolar2 GX 48/3000 at their heart. Both Systems have a USB Hub with BT dongle for Ruuvi's and a GX Tank 140, which is used to connect 24v 4-20ma Tank senders.


The problem comes from them being mobile installations, as the 4G signal can be patchy and is occassionally unavailable for their chosen location.

When they are offline, they have no way to access the Tank information without resorting to remote console on LAN, which is not really suitable for all types of User.


Connecting to a wifi network that doesnt have internet, to get to the remote console on LAN, to then be able to look at the tanks seems a bit crazy, as the GX device has an inbuilt display to provide the essential information at a glance.

Primary use of this display, IMO, would be for when there is no internet, so would be handy to be able to see all of the relevant information to the system on it, not just a set of defaults.

Whilst the Tank's not being displayed is the primary complaint, it would be nice to be able to display the Ruuvi tag information on this screen also, but tank information is most important.


As the GX device is integrated and internally connected to the multi & MPPT I cannot even swap it out for a Cerbo & GX Touch, so am a bit stumped on how to proceed.

At present the only option I have to resolve both customers complaints is to purchase a tablet/ipad, mount locally in Kiosk mode, then use this to display the remote console.

This is only marginally better than using remote console on a phone, if this is how it has to be done then I would have to use GuiMods to customise the remote console to show the info on the home screen.


Any suggestions on how else this could be done would be very much appreciated, cheap tablets are almost always trouble!

If these features can be added to Venus OS then they would be useful to all systems containting a ES2GX, MP2GX or MaxiGX.

Cheers,

Rob

Victron Dashboard Anzeige falsch

Ich habe eine Anlage mit Multiplus II, Victron Cerbo, MPPT 250/70 und Batterien Pylontech LiFePO4 seit Anfang 2022 laufen. Alles funktioniert aber im Dashboard wird auch beim Laden "Descharching" angezeigt und es erscheinen zwei unterschiedkiche Prozentwerte für den Ladezustand der Batterien. Ist hier etwas falsch konfiguriert?

ET112 display different in VRM and Console

I am yet to replace my 24 volt Latronics inverter and lead acid batteries with a 48 Victron Multiplus II and BYD lithium battery set (another 6 months) so in the meantime as part of the transition I have installed an ET 112 energy meter to monitor the AC output (AC Load) from the inverter. I already have Victron MPPT Charge Controllers and the Smart Shunt for monitoring purposes. Everything is connected to a Cerbo GX. When I monitor the system via VRM the AC load shows up as it should. see image below.

[image]

When I look at the Console the AC Load is mirrored in the AC Input. See image below. The DC power represents the current flow to the Latronics inverter as it has no interface to the Victron ecosystem.

[image]

When I look at the summary on the VRM dashboard I get the following. Which displays the ET112 data in the "From Grid" box even though I have chosen AC Load as the category for the ET112. The true consumption data is actually Consumption minus From Grid.

[image]

Whilst none of these anomalies impact on the way the system works or the way that I monitor what is happening, I would be interested to know why this is the case. I am sure all this will go away when the new Victron inverter is installed and everything talks the same language.

My nerdy self would like to understand.

Dashboard Einstellung auf Remote Konsole

Guten Morgen,

Venus GX gibt die Möglichkeit in der Remote Konsole einzustellen, was auf den VRM Portal zu sehen sein soll. Mein Venus GX hat die Software Version v2.89. Angeschlossen sind verschiedene Geräte.

Egal was ich in der Remote Konsole einstelle (und anschließend das GX neu starte), das VRM Portal zeigt immer dasselbe Erscheinungsbild. Die meisten Geräte werden angezeigt, andere nicht. Hat jemand dieses Phänomen auch bereits beobachtet und eine Lösung (oder auch nicht) gefunden?

Beste Grüße Peter

Dashboard zeigt Phönix ip 43 Charger nicht an

Hallo miteinander,

das Dashboard im VRM Portal zeigt mir einen neu dazugekommenen Phönix ip 43 Charger nicht an. Das Gerät ist mit einem Victron direkt Kabel an ein Venus GX angeschlossen und in der Geräteliste des VRM Portals aufgeführt. Ebenso lassen sich die Widgets des Gerät einblenden. Bloss im Dashboard taucht es nicht auf.

Gibt es dazu Hinweise?

Beste Grüße

Peter

How to remove AC Input and Loads from VRM Dashboard?


Is there a way to remove these AC Input and AC Loads from the dashboard as I am not using them? I tried to remove them under Remote Console/System Setup/AC Input=Not Available. However, the setting always reverts back to "Unknown". Am I stuck with these two useless widgets in my case? Thanks in advance.

GX Dashboard Pylontech Anzeige eingefroren

[image]

Guten Tag,

nach der Erweiterung um ein Modul des Pylontech Akkus habe ich festgestellt, dass die Anzeige im Dashboard und in der Remote Konsole bzgl

der aktuelle Landung- und Entladung eingefroren ist. In der Remote Konsole habe ich bei Batteriemessungen auch den Multiplus auf sichtbar gestellt und dadurch gesehen, das dieser die jeweils aktuellen Batteriewerte anzeigt.

Welche Erklärung gibt es dafür?

VictronConnect Mobile and Dashboard

This is not a question, more of an idea for a dashboard specifically for the mobile app.

The mobile app (android) has two tabs. Local and VRM under the heading Device List.

Challenge: It is difficult to find the content all in one spot. Particularly if you cannot access the GX Touch console screen. VRM Portal is not particularly well formatted in a browser (and it polls data slower than glaciers move).

Add a Dashboard option. Let the available devices populate a series of widgets. And allow users to configure the dashboard with the widgets they want. The widgets will can connect via bluetooth or VRM Portal, whichever is available automatically. Data from VRM Portal should be close to real time. In a multi-cloud world these days, it isn't difficult to make this happen, at least for many of the important data points. (Bat Voltage, Solar, AC Input/Output, Inverter Mode, etc)

Widget Ideas:

  • State of Charge
  • Battery Voltage
  • Current
  • Power
  • Consumed AH
  • Time Remaining
  • Solar Voltage
  • Solar Watts
  • Solar Current
  • GX Touch Page 1
  • GX Touch Page 2

Let users configure Widgets there way (meter, counter, graph etc). And make this dashboard cloud configured. Meaning allow the Dashboard configuration to be stored in the cloud for this user so they don't need to reconfigure next time they reinstall app.

Make the Dashboard configuration a responsive design and therefore usable through the mobile app, and any HTML 5 browser. This will allow users to configure one way and still access it any way that is convenient.

If any one widget is offline line, indicate it as such, grayed out with offline in text below.

I recognize this is a considerable amount of work, but this will help users access the information that is important to them quickly and easily.

VRM-portal: missmatch PV-power / battery / power / consumed power

As can be seen on the attached screenshot the dashboard shows illogical values.

  • The PV-power is verified and correct (power meter).
  • The battery power is verified and correct (BMS).
  • The grid power values are verified and correct (grid meter).
  • The values on the critical load tab are absolutely not correct.This same behavoiur can be observed every day. Sometimes during the day it suddenly shows the correct values. Up to now I could not find any reasons for when the values are correct/incorrect.

Any ideas? If this was already discussed and is a known topic I would be grateful for a link. I was not able to find anything...

Color control GX as a monitor only?

I already have the color control GX from the original RV install a year ago. I would like to use the Cerbo GX in the new install to combine all the Victron devices and only run one connection to the Color Control inside as the display. I know it is redundant to have both. But I do not want to have to cut a new hole for a new screen install. Thank you!

Dashboard Data

The battery on my Dashboard has suddenly started to show the Temperature along with the Voltage and Current . The data doesnt change and is several degrees out , even the "SOLAR BATTERY CHARGER TEMPERATURE widget which i know to be correct is nothing like the Dashboard figure . Can someone please tell me where the information is taken from and how do i remove it . Tried the battery Temperature Widget from the VE Bus System (276) and that is stuck at the same reading . Enabling DVCC just Voltage Sense and selecting MPPT a source but doesn't do anything , the MPPT regulates spot on from the Temperature it shows on its screen .

Another quick question is can i tee off the Battery Sense wire just before it enters my MPPT and connect it to my Multiplus 1200 also or would the voltage reading be less accurate rendering it less reliable to control Temperature compensation .

System view disappeared on VRM DashBoard

Until yesterday my VRM dashboard has always appeared as in the first, example, image. However, yesterday the dashboard is displayed as shown in the second image. Was this a software upgrade or the like or have I accidentally changed a setting to make this happen? I find it to be disorienting and not as useful as the original dashboard.

This is the new dashboard.
