Multiplus 12/2500/120 stop charging with external BMS signal

Hi, I hope someone can help me with this.

I have an older 12/2500/120 Multiplus that I got second hand. I have non-victron batteries with 123BMS system.

When my BMS says to stop charging via its relays (if somehow my Multiplus didn't get it, or battery overheats, or something else I have no idea...), how do I turn "off" the charging of the multiplus?

What is strange to me is that the "Remote Connections" of the multiplus have 3 pins and 2 options.

  1. Short pin 1 & 2 to turn Multiplus "ON". This feels absurd because the manual says these pins only work when the device is on through the main switch (see below excerpt of manual)
  2. Short pin 2 & 3 to turn into "charging only": logical!

Is there a way I can use pin 1 & 2 to turn the multiplus off ? To stop charging? Or any other way aside from putting a relay on the incoming AC connection?

My main question is, can my BMS turn off (=overrule) charging entirely?

[ 1.6.4 Remote Control — The product can be operated remotely in two ways.1: Use of only an external switch.For connection of the switch see Appendix A.Observe the following when using only an external switch:Only functions if the switch on the product is switched to the "on" position.]

Thanks for helping me out!!

Error on upload for Remote VEConfigure and Multiplus

I'm trying to use Remote VEConfigure. I downloaded the settings file for my multiplus from the VRM portal (it saves it as a txt... which I rename to a rvsc file otherwise I cant even begin the upload).


I'm able to open the file, make changes, and then save changes. Saved changes reflect when I re-open the file.


I then go into VRM and upload the new rvsc file. It seems to start off OK, then I get this error:


An error occured during the configuration process.

Error Message: 'Wrong password'

Error: mk2vsc-36


How can I resolve this?

Multiplus 5KVA Remote abschalten

Guten Tag, endlich habe ich auch einen Multiplus 5kva

Im Manual lese ich folgendes.

4.4.4 Fernbedienung
Die Fernbedienung des Gerätes ist auf zweifache Weise möglich:
- Mit einem externen Schalter (Anschlussklemme L, Anhang A). Der MultiPlus-Hauptschalter muss für den Betrieb auf “on” stehen.

Schaue ich nun im Anhang A nach Anschlussklemme L, dann ist das für mich der PE Anschluß.

Wo kann ich einen externen Schalter/Relais anschließen um den Multiplus Standby zu schalten.

Mein Spanischer Händler kann mir auch nicht weiterhelfen

Vielen Dank

How to Connect a VenusGX and VRM on a sailing boat

How to Connect a VenusGX to VRM using an Apple iPhone 6 from a sailing catamaran at sea.

Initially I tried using the built-in WIFI. Configured the Venus and could 'see' various local WIFI networks. Turned on my iPhone WIFI and then my 'hotspot'. Tried connecting to my phone which was about 1 m away from the Venus and I could 'see' the phone. It took a while to finally show that it would not connect and failed.

I have a USB WIFI (Victron) so inserted that into the Venus and re-booted it. Logged in again using the local web server [(WIFI to Venus and then Safari to IP address)]. The signal strength of my phone (hot spot) was now full - up from 60%. Selected my phone name and then used the local keypad on the Lynx to select and enter the password. (Note here - you can use the computer keyboard - the local up down/left right and enter wheels are cumbersome). Entered <return>.

The screen jumped back to the <phone> name screen and it took ages to finally 'Connected'. At that point I changed my wifi connection on the MacBook leaving the Venus connected to my phones hotspot.

Changed my connection to another hotspot (my wife's iPhone) - logged into VRM and there was my installation - all the devices up and working. Did some software updating and downloaded some Mulit Settings using remote VE.Configure on the VRM website.

All working great (from East Coast Australia - Gold Coast).

Remote VE.Configure failed, MP inoperable

Hi all,

Last week I tried updating the config of a MP remotely. I downloaded the config via VRM, updated the config via VE.Configure, then uploaded the modified file. The MP shut down, which also powered down Venus and the internet connection (as expected and as per the documentation).

The config changes were LVD and PV Inverter assistent changes (different frequency range).

The MP showed three blinking yellow LEDs and a blinking red LED (low battery). It turns out that I picked the exact threshold for the LVD, which prevented the MP from restarting (I'll check that next time!). The three blinking yellow LEDs (bulk, absorption and float) were a bit of a concern though: according to the manual this means "Hardware or EEPROM error".

VRM showed the following error:

[image]

Switching the MP off, then back on, cleared the three blinking yellow LEDs but (of course) Low Battery remained and as a result the MP did not start up. After connecting a laptop and changing the LVD parameters, the MP started successfully, after which I could also make the required changes to the PV inverter assistant (it seems none of the changes made remotely made it to the MP).

My questions:

- why was the MP showing three blinking yellow LEDs? Is this a concern or expected behaviour in this scenario?

- did the MP not restart because of the Low Battery condition or because the update failed (or both)?

- is it possible to use Remote VE.Configure to remotely update a MP knowing Venus will shutdown and internet connectivity will be lost temporarily in this scenario?

- is it possible to check the current battery voltage and warn the user if the updated config would result in the MP staying off? While I could agree that the operator needs to double check this before uploading the new config file, it would be nice (and smart) if VE.Configure would check this (assuming it can).

regards,
Jan

Remote VEConfigure

I read the article about Remote VEConfigure https://www.victronenergy.com/live/vrm_portal:remote-veconfigure . I have two multipluses 3000/24/70-16 in parallel, when i press the download button, the downloaded file's type is *.rvms and it cannot be opened in VE.config or VE.Bus system configurator. I have the master's *.rvsc file saved locally but when I try to upload it remotely I get the error code:

"An error occured during the configuration process.

Error Message: 'File section not found'

Error Code: mk2vsc-55"

Ps. The master is a newer model from the slave so I downgraded the masters' firmware to 2612159 in order to be able to be paralleled with the older slave with the 1912159 firmware.

What do you suggest?

Can I change MPPT Smart 150/45 settings remotely via Remote VE Configure?

From the highlighted text below I understand I can manage my MPPT settings remotely (access to full power)? Is my understanding correct or is the text a bit ambiguous?

Remote Monitoring and Control

Remotely control and monitor the extensive features of your SmartSolar MPPT charger with built-in bluetooth by pairing it with your smartphone or other device via VictronConnect. If your installation is connected to the internet Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM) provides access to the full power of your MPPT, anytime, anywhere; both services are free to use.

Bug in Remote VEConfigure/VRM with Multi-Restart warning?

Hello,

lately I had an unintended restart of my MultiPlus because I didn't get any notification that my changed settings requires a restart.

I edited a fresh Remote VE Configure file and changed battery monitor settings (battery capacity and charge efficiency). Neither VE.Configure3 nor the VRM Upload function gave me a restart warning.

Interesting detail: when I open VE.Configure3 with a "Fake target with full options", I get notifications in the bottom status line of the software that a restart is required.


My system:

- Multiplus 24/3000 (v433)

- Venus GX (v2.23)


Maybe someone could check this out too?

Best regards

Remote VEConfigure 3 values don't seem to correspond with reality

When I was trying to work around the 180 volt cut-off problem (https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/3306/cut-off-input-voltage-lower-than-180-volt.html) I entered a disconnect value of 180 and a reconnect value of 181 volt while I was onsite. This caused the system to switch many times, so I changed the reconnect value to 184 volt. But this was via Remote VEConfigure 3. Now something strange has happened, because the system disconnects not a 180 volt, but at 184 volt. Reconnect voltage seems to be 185 volt, so now the system still switches a lot. If I download the Remote VEConfigure file, it has the values of 180 for disconnect and 184 for reconnect. But judging by the behavior of the system the values are really not these numbers!

I don't know what to do now, because I can not physically access this site and I would like to solve the switching problem.

Any ideas on what to do now?

Error code 1391 after reloading page when downloading a VEconfig

Hi there,

I am attempting to remotely update the VE config in one of my systems, but the download process shows the error 1391 just after the page is automatically reloaded as shown below. Due to the fact that the downloading process takes longer than the usual time where the page is not being reloaded, it seems to be impossible to remotely update my system.

[image]

[image]

Same error message pops up after clicking on Retry button

[image]

I have successfully downloaded other VE Configs on systems where the downloading process finished before the page was auto reloaded.

Any ideas how to solve this issue? Can I increase or disable the auto reload process of my VRM?
