Cerbo GX & GX Touch 50

A turbo charged GX device

The new Cerbo GX, along with the optional GX Touch 50 display, were announced and demonstrated at METS, November 2019.

Personally I’m a great fan of GX devices, the Color Control GX, Venus GX and more – all being a part of the Victron GX product range.

Detailed introductory blogpost by Panbo

However, my 6 years personal experience is with the Color Control GX model – so I’d be doing you the reader a disservice by reviewing the Cerbo GX. Also, as I blog for Victron, I admit to a natural and faithful bias. It seems only right and proper then to let an independent reviewer give you their take on this exciting new product. What I can say though – is that going by the review on Panbo, the product will be in great demand.

For a detailed introduction, I recommend reading the Panbo blog post by Ben Ellison:

Victron Cerbo GX, good AC/DC power monitoring gets better.

GX Touch 50 display

The GX Touch 50 is the optional display for the Cerbo GX. Its water proof, thin, and easy to mount. There is a cable coming out on the back with two plugs on it: the HDMI goes into the HDMI port on the Cerbo, and the USB (used to power the display) goes into one of the USB sockets. For all details, including dimensions and the manual, see the GX Touch 50 product page.

Optional DIN rail adapter

The optional DIN rail adapters are to easily mount the Cerbo GX on a DIN-Rail. Dimensions and details are available on its page on our website.

Conclusion

When you consider just how far GX devices have come in the last 6 years (just take a look back to 2014), then the Cerbo GX is to my mind the ultimate GX turbo charged device for connectivity.
