 The dongle can be used in systems with or without a [[venus-os:​start|Venus-device]] - such as the CCGX.

 The VE.Bus Smart dongle is able to sense battery temperature in two ways: The default method is the dongle'​s on-board temperature sensor. When the dongle is mounted directly onto the battery case (using its adhesive attachment) it will sense the battery temperature directly from the battery casing. The second method - which provides improved battery temperature sensing - is available by using an optional //​battery-terminal//​ mounted sensor. When this sensor is connected, the default sensor is overridden and the dongle will use this method instead. ​ The VE.Bus Smart dongle is able to sense battery temperature in two ways: The default method is the dongle'​s on-board temperature sensor.
