-First of all, note that the maximum of VE.Direct devices that can be connected is 5 for the CCGX. How they are connected, so direct, via USB or via CAN, does not change the maximum. See [[venus-os:start|here]] for the Venus GX, Octo GX, and other limits.+First of all, note that the maximum of VE.Direct devices that can be connected is 5 for the CCGX.

   *Option 1: Use the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/ve-direct-to-usb-interface|VE.Direct to USB interface]]. The CCGX has two USB ports. Use a USB-hub when more than two USB ports are required.   *Option 1: Use the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/ve-direct-to-usb-interface|VE.Direct to USB interface]].

Note that the BMV712, MPPTs and VEDirect Inverters cannot be connected using this canbus interface as it does not translate the data into canbus messages. When using the VE.Direct to VE.Can interface, make sure that the VE.Can network is terminated, and also powered. For powering the VE.Can network, see Q17 in our [[https://www.victronenergy.com/upload/documents/Whitepaper-Data-communication-with-Victron-Energy-products_EN.pdf|data communication whitepaper]].+  *Option 2: (Only!) the BMV700 and BMV702 can also be connected using the [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/ve-direct-to-ve-can-interface|VE.Direct to VE.Can interface]].
