Remote console stuck in tile mode.

Since yesterday, my Remote Console is on Tile mode and can’t be switched back to menu to edit options. The menu button at the bottom did work before. I can switch between the different tile screens, but not back to the menu screen where attached devices are listed. Anyone else having this problem?

Cerbo GX, can all features of MPPT & battery monitor be used from it, etc?

In my boat I have BlueSolar MPPT 75/15 and battery monitor BMV-702, both with VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart Dongle. I am considering getting Cerbo GX, especially to be able to remotely monitor the electrical status of the boat (and to read some data from the MFD of the boat, maybe connect a temperature sensor, etc).

Both my above devices can only connect to (Cerbo) GX from their single VE.Direct port using a cable, so the BT dongles would become useless. So all Input & Output would have to go through the Cerbo GX device, be it done remotely (VRM) or when in the boat (Remote Console).

Q1: Now my question is that can I

a) read all the different data produced by my devices?

b) input all the settings of my above devices (for MPPT no other I/O would remain!)

Is there any difference in the available features in a) & b) above when using Remote Console, or VRM?

I have read most of the Cerbo GX manual, and some other material, but found no real answers!?! That was a surprise :-(

On Bluetooth connection, the manual says under 4.1, Using VictronConnect via BT:

  • From the main device screen it is possible to change the networking settings, view the system on VRM, or open the Remote Console (screenshot of VictronConnet App has both Remote Console & VRM active)
  • It (BT) is intended to be used to assist with initial connection and networking configuration.

Q2: So which one of these two de facto contradictory statements is true?

In my usage pattern, I would prefer using VictronConnect via BT, rather than via WiFi, to access the Remote Console when in boat.

But in reality, is that possible now, or with forthcoming fw versions?

Q3: Power consumption of Cerbo GX? No manufacturer's data is available :-(

- One kind user of this forum had measured it to be ca. 0.3 A @12 V, under unknown use conditions.

All-in-all, I must say that the documentation and data is quite disappointing when it comes to the real beef :-( One Youtube video on real-world usage could be extremely informative...

PS. When trying to post this, I learned that the platform does not allow for smiley non-ascii symbols, the msgs resulted in "Internal error..." :-(

Venus gx VRM portal battery voltage data
Hey everyone,

I’m looking to get battery voltage data as a data point on the vrm portal, I can see the information on the 1hr chart but not on the daily or weekly information it only shows me battery capacity %age

as the BMV 712 only really give you an estimate battery capacity I like being able to look at battery voltage as data point as a fail safe. How could I make this happen? This is what I want to to see but across all points of time history.

Thanks in advance x

VRM Remote console and two way communication are disabled, but still work

Venus GX 2.53, both Remote Console on VRM and Two way communication are enabled, but when using VRM (Device list- Gateway) it indicates they are disabled. Funny thing is I can still do Remote console from VRM and it works fine.

I probably would not of noticed this reporting discrepancy if my Victron Connect VRM tab (by the way this feature is really cool) had not suddenly stopped showing my devices after adding a new smartsolar 150-70 into my configuration (but this is another issue).

VRM charger relay widget not displaying any data, while alarm shows relay engaged

I have noticed there is an issue with the VRM display of the charger relay state. We run a pair of Skylla-IP44 12/60 chargers, running synced. VRM has it recorded that one (or both) charger relays have been engaged, along with the CCGX/Gateway relay. The dashboard widget for the CCGX relay is engaged, and this shows correctly on the dashboard. However, the widget for the charger relay is displaying no data.

Venus GX WiFi turned off I have a RV with various Victron hardware installed. I bought this setup 2nd hand 9 months ago & was not fully shown how it all worked. About a month ago when using my iPhone I mistakenly turned off the WiFi on the GX & now cant find a way to turn it back on. Also for the last 9 months it has not been logging/updating info on the VRM system. I have an account & it was logging at first. Because I move around a lot is it possible to use iPhones hot spotting (we have 2) laptops (also 2) & connect the venus to internet for logging & updating. Then use the laptops for reading & changing settings on my equipment? One more question. I have a 4G micro SD card. What format does it need to be to use with the GX for logging when not connected? Fat, FAT32 or NTFS?

Unable to set scheduled charging for 23:xx on ESS configuration

Good Day guys,

I am trying to charge my BYD batteries between 23:00-07:00 when the unit price of grid is the lowest but, somehow CCGX does not allow me to set ESS > scheduled charging > Schedule 1 start time anything after 22:59. Submitting a value e.g. 23:17, returns as 22:17 automatically in submitted task and I also realised that scheduled task never fires at displayed time: 22:17 ( probably its only a gui bug)

The system is running latest firmware Venus v2.42. the bug is probably introduced with v2.4x

It may also be related with Timezone: GMT+3. Anyone faced similar issue?

DC consumption not logging on VRM?

I have just set up a Raspberry Pi running Venus OS

System: 2x 75/15s + Pi / 7s Lithium NMC / DC only setup with all loads via the load outputs.

So the VRM dashboard shows 'live' consumption at last update, the advanced widget 'System Overview - DC system' does a good job of allowing me to see watts used at any point in time.

Load out data from the MPPTs clearly exists. Why then is there no DC consumption logged on the dashboard like solar power produced?

VGR connection to VEBUS

We have rebuild a system with 6 of current version Quattro 10KVA (Software Version 2653465). The original System with Quattros installed in 2011 was monitored by a VICTRON GLOBAL REMOTE Modem, connected to a BMV600 and sending the Data via GSM network. Now with the new Inverters the VEBUS is not showing anymore on VRM Website and when monitored via SMS it also does not show the VEBUS Values. Only the data of the BMV is shown. When the VEBUS-data is requested via SMS we get the reply: “VE.Bus communication is being established”. The Version of VGR is V2.14, firmware: R7.44.0.2010083112.

Is there any possibility to connect the current version QUATTROS with their VEBUS to the existing VGR GSM Unit. Or is there an Update / setting we can send to the VGR modem in order to see the VEBUS from the QUATTROS?

VRM Battery Charger state widget not time aligned with other widgets

I absolutely love the widgets in the VRM advanced tab. They make observing performance, and drilling down so easy. Especially as the zoom feature now automatically re-populates the zoomed graph with the granular data.

I recently found the Charger State widget which is very handy to know quickly if the charger is the charging source, as well as its state changes. But I noticed that while all the other widgets are perfectly time aligned, this widget is a little off. Not the end of the world, but it would be nice to have this fixed.
