VE.Can to CAN-bus BMS cables manual

1. Introduction

Use this cable to connect a CAN-bus enabled battery to a Victron system.

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 Venus-device.

There are two types, each with different pinning. Some brands of batteries require a Type A. Other brands require the Type B cable.

Type A compatible batteries:

  • BYD B-Box

Type B compatible batteries:

  • LG Chem Resu
  • AXIstorage
  • BMZ
  • Pylontech

2. 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.
