BMV 702 - VictonConnect

Recommended Posts

When I got the BMV 702, I could connect to the BMV 702 with my laptop via VictronConnect. The last time I connected to the BMV with my laptop, there was a popup to inform me that there was an updated version available and asked if I  would I like to download and upgrade to the latest version. I clicked on "Yes". Since then, VictronConnect fails to pick up my BMV 702. 

As the BMV 702 is always connected to my Pi, it would have been great if VictronConnect was available for the Pi. I was just wondering if anyone else with a BMV 702 encountered the same problem?

The first thing to check would be to see if the serial port comes up. It has an FTDI chip in the cable which should come up as a serial port. You should be able to connect to that with a terminal emulator (at 19200 baud) and see the output.

Otherwise the obvious thing to do is mail their support line. They are very quick to respond.

May be It's time for Victron to consider moving the APPS to Windows UWP ( universal apps platform) then people can run them on Pi with Windows IOT,  or even PC's with Windows S
