Venus v2.10

Good morning!

Last night we released version Venus v2.10. It contains two fixes:

  • Fix Remote VEConfigure not working with VE.Bus firmware version 418. Note that Remote VEConfigure does not work for 416 and 417, and also will never work. Have you recently installed or updated a system where you need the option to remotely change settings in the Inverter, Multi or Quattro? In that case do check if they are running 416 or 417, and if so update to 418.
  • Fix rounding of battery ‘Time To Go’ and ‘Time since last full charge’ values for systems where the battery monitor is connected via VE.Can. Such as the Lynx Shunt VE.Can, the Lynx Ion BMS, or a BMV connected via a VE.Direct to VE.Can interface cable. The error caused the values to be rounded to full hours, losing the minutes.

In short, v2.09 adds several features that were missing in the Venus GX. More specifically, ModbusTCP and the second (not galvanically isolated!) CAN-bus port. Furthermore it contains a whole list of various small bug fixes and improvements. Last but not least, v2.09 marks the inclusion of the RaspberryPi family into Venus. RaspberryPi integration was made possible by Izak Burger – read all about it! – and information about integrating Venus with a RaspberryPi can be found here.

Venus v2.08 – Fixes Energy Meter ET340 bug

Good day, just now we have released Venus v2.08.

First let me explain what is Venus. Venus is the name of the software that runs on both the Venus GX and the Color Control GX. This software update is available for both devices. So, Venus is software, and the Venus GX is hardware.

All Color Control GX-es and Venus GX-es that are part of an ESS install and which are using the ET340 meter must be updated to this version.

v2.08 has only two changes:Continue reading
