VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS cables manual

Use these VE.Can to CAN-bus cables to connect a CAN-bus enabled battery to a GX device.

1. Selecting the right cable

ASS030710018 - VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS type A Cable 1.8m

  • BYD B-Box

ASS030720018 - VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS type B Cable 1.8m

  • LG Chem Resu
  • AXIstorage
  • BMZ
  • Pylontech

2. Installation

The side labeled 'CAN-bus BMS' plugs into the battery. The other side, labeled 'VE.Can' must be plugged into the VE.Can port of the GX device.

For configuration, see the manual specific to the brand of battery you are using.

3. Pin-out

In some cases it might be needed to make the cable at the location. Find below the pin-outs. Make sure to very carefully test the cable after crimping it. Self-made cables are very often the causes of very hard to diagnose problems.
