canbus isolation on MPPT solar charger

I am connecting a Venus GX to 4 x 150/100 MPPT VECan solar charger controllers on a positive ground 48v bus system. The GX controller is running off a seperate 12v power supply via an Orion isolated DC/DC charger. Do I need to use a canbus isolation module between the GX and the MPPTs? I am presuming not, but thought I would check.


Cheers, Derek

vecan dBus services disappear if GUI isn't running

I noticed that vecan dBus services (using dbus-spy) disappear if I kill the GUI process. These services return once the GUI has restarted.

Specifically in my case:

com.victronenergy.vecan.can0

com.victronenergy.tank.socketcan_can0_vi0_uc855


I'm currently running Venus version 2.52

Is this normal/expected or a bug?
