  1. I had something similar a while back. Just to check, did you at some stage connect to the MPPT via bluetooth and changed a few values? There was a setting I set (will have to check), but this caused intermittent disconnects.
  2. enjoy the install, luckily Victron makes thinks easier
  3. I have a 150l and a 200l geyser, both fitted with a 2kW element. I use sonoff devices to manage the schedule. Geyser 1 - Every day 4h00-5h30 and 15h00-16h30 Geyser 2 - Everyday 5h30-7h00 and 16h30-18h00 During during summer I only let them only go for 1hour at a time twice a day. We have warm water all day round in both showers. We are 3 people using the 150l geyser and 2 people using the 200l geyser. LED lights... will change your consumption quite a bit, especially if you have outdoor lights. ROI on these is short if you replace all your lights Add day/night sens
  4. Hi there, Does anyone else have an issue where I cannot open the Venus control panel on multiple tablets. I have two tablets that display the overview, but only one of them works at a time, if I refresh tablet A then tablet B goes offline, if I refresh tablet B then tablet A goes offline. Is there a setting I missed or is it just the way the VenusGX works? I see I can no longer @Plonkster, cause I know he usually deals with Victron.
  5. I'm liking the new VRM Portal interface. Do i need to run some updates on my venus, inverters and charger after the portal update?
  6. it is fairly new, so it might be the reason.
  7. mot exactly sure, but this thread does make me feel more at ease though
  8. it does feel random, and we just started loadshedding and my pc did not dip. I did realise though that it must be happening a lot less than i think, cause i only notice it when it happens, and when i look at my vgx notifications there is a lot of power dips. Will this be exaggerated if the power draw on the inverters are high during switchover, cause my borehole is set to auto as well as pressure pumps, so it could be that at that exact point both are on drawing a lot of power. The PSU on both pc's are fairly new corsair gold power supplies, so i think i can eliminate those.
  9. Occasionally when load shedding starts, and the inverters switch over to batteries equipment like computers and lights switch off and then back on, while the tv does not power off at all. Loads at the time of switchover is around 700W Its not always though. he system comprises of 3 Victron Multiplus II and 6 Pylontech US2000. This only started recently and previously the computers would stay on during the switchover. Is there anything i can look at to resolve this?
  10. Ask @Jaco de Jongh for a quote.
  11. actually an interesting question I know pylontech mentions a typical amount of cycles for these batteries, i cant recall the exact amount, but if the batteries are kept at 100% how does it impact lifespan, is it still around 10-15 years if you almost never cycle them?
  12. Active SOC is a value that is automatically set by your GX device If battery life is enabled then each day your battery does not fully charge the Active SOC increases by 5%. Each day it gets fully charged your Active SOC decreases by 5%. If battery life is enabled then your batteries will not discharge more than your Active SOC. The above all happens cause your system is trying to get your batteries to 100%. If you change your Minimum SOC the active SOC increases with it, but will only decrease each time the battery is fully charged.
  13. I accidentally pulled it open once under load, i thought the changeover switch was already flipped. it most certainly made a huge bang. I suggest using it as it is intended to be used, as a fuse or for emergencies only (if you have no other emergency option).
  14. @MorneDJ Go to Settings -> ESS there should be two values which is important: Minimum SOC Active SOC What are those two values? If you look at your ESS Notifications it shows #1, #2 #1 = SOC Low #2 = Battery Life enabled My suspicion is that your Active SOC is very high, above 90%. Active SOC is a value that is automatically set by your GX device, if Battery life is enabled then each day your battery does not fully charged the Active SOC increases by 5%. Each day it gets fully charged your Active SOC decreases by 5%. If battery life is enabled
