 To use the AXIstorage ESS in Victron system, it is necessary to use a ColorControlGX or a VenusGX. The controller takes care of sending the necessary canbus keep-a-live message to the ESS battery. Without it, the battery will open its internal emergency relay after 10 minutes. To use the AXIstorage ESS in Victron system, it is necessary to use a ColorControlGX or a VenusGX.
