Brilliant service. Thanks to mike and the team for the advice.
Sales were very helpful identifying the product that fulfilled my requirement (a current sensor) and delivered it swiftly. After sales service was excellent too - helping me to achieve the correct configuration.
The Venus GX has the same functions as the Colour Controller but without the screen and buttons to be an affordable solution.
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).
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.
