-The CCGX only has one available VE.Can port. It is not possible to connect both CAN products such as VE.Can MPPT (250 kbit/s) and an Battery battery CAN-bus (500 kbit/s) together on the CCGX. As the SOLARMD Battery MUST be connected, you will need to use the port for that. This will mean no data is collected from the VE.Can MPPT, nor can the CCGX control it. This means you are required to use the “Allow to Charge” wire configuration for the MPPT. 
  
-Venus GX Configuration +=== Color Control GX Configuration === 
-The VGX has two CAN-bus interfaces available. The VE.Can MPPT will remain connected to the VE.Can port, while the SOLARMD CAN-bus cable should use the specific CAN-bus connections (H, L, GND).
