Rising Connection_Victron energy logoThe Venus GX is the communication-centre of your installation. Venus allows you to talk to all components in your system and ensure they are working in harmony. Monitoring of live data, and changing settings is performed by using your smartphone (or other device) via our free-to-use Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM).

KEY FEATURES

Panels and system monitoring

The Venus GX is the communication-centre of your installation. Venus allows you to talk to all components in your system and ensure they are working in harmony. Monitoring of live data, and changing settings is performed by using your smartphone (or other device) via our free-to-use Victron Remote Management Portal (VRM).

Rising Connection_Venus-GX (front-angle)

The Venus GX can be connected to internet with an Ethernet cable and via Wi-Fi. The Venus GX has no internal cellular modem: there is no slot for a sim-card. Use an off-the-shelf GPRS or 3G router instead

When connected to the internet, all data is sent to the VRM Portal. When there is no internet connection available, the Venus GX will store the data internally, up to 48 hours. By inserting a micro SD-card or USB stick, more data can be stored. These files can then be uploaded to the VRM Portal, or offline converted with the VictronConnect app, for analysis.

Intuitive system overview – all you need to know

As soon as you ‘log on’ Venus GX provides an instant overview of your system: Battery state of charge; present power consumption; power harvest from PV; power provision from mains/generator.

The full power of Victron Remote Management

Victron Remote Management (VRM) provides you with full access to the very extensive controls and settings of all system-components which are connected to either your CCGX or Venus GX. It allows remote user and installer login – from anywhere, at anytime. This powerful application also provides for hassle-free diagnostic checks and analysis of archived information.

Automatic Generator start/stop

The Venus GX can be programmed to auto-start your generator – triggered by low-voltage; high-demand; or battery state of charge. It can be further tailored to delay ignition until the end of ‘quiet’ periods – avoiding accidental nuisance at dead of night.

Remote Console – control everything from anywhere

Remote Console provides visual access to the live data and settings of your Venus GX …and because it’s remote – you can do that from anywhere in the world.

ESS: Energy Storage Systems – 24 hour Monitoring

The Venus GX manages Energy Storage Systems. It keeps back-up batteries at 100% ; kicks-in during power-cuts; and diverts excess (solar) power to self- consumption – saving you money. For examples and more detailed information see the ESS (Energy Storage System) manual.

Remotely Monitor your boat or motorhome electrics

Planning a trip? Remote monitoring of your Venus GX allows you to make sure your boat or motorhome are ready to go. Venus GX also allows you to talk to connected equipment from other manufacturers. And with Venus GX you can check the tanks, too.
