-  - The listed maximum on the `Performance` section in above table is the total connected VE.Direct devices such as MPPT Solar Charge controllers. Total means all directly connected devices plus the devices connected over USB. The limit is mostly bound by CPU processing power. Note that there is also a limit to the other type of devices of which often multiple are connected: PV Inverters. Up to three or four three phase inverters can typically be monitored on a CCGX. Higher power CPU devices can monitor more.+  - The listed maximum VE.Direct devices on the `Performance` section in above table is the total connected VE.Direct devices such as MPPT Solar Charge controllers. Total means all directly connected devices plus the devices connected over USB. The limit is mostly bound by CPU processing power. In relation to that, note that (a) connecting solar chargers over VE.Can is more efficient than connected over VE.Direct - and besides more efficient also makes for better communication wiring. For example, Cerbo GX can perfectly handle 25 pieces of VE.Can Solar Charger, combined with 6 pieces of Fronius three phase PV Inverter and of course a three phase Victron system. And note (b) that CPU load is not only caused by connecting VE.Direct devices; there are also other factors. Connecting multiple PV Inverters increases the CPU load, especially when they are three phase. Enabling ModbusTCP increases the CPU load as well. Up to three or four three phase inverters can typically be monitored on a CCGX. Higher power CPU devices can monitor more. 
   - Though the CCGX has no built-in WiFi that functionality can easily be added by attaching a USB-WiFi dongle. See [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#internet_connectivity|CCGX Manual, section 1.4.2]] for details.   - Though the CCGX has no built-in WiFi that functionality can easily be added by attaching a USB-WiFi dongle.

   - The built-in WiFi in the Venus GX has a very low signal strength - unfortunately. It is strong enough to connect to a phone, tablet or laptop in order to access setup and monitoring. But to connect the Venus GX to the internet either use the built-in Ethernet port or add a USB-WiFi dongle. See [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ccgx:start#internet_connectivity|CCGX Manual, section 1.4.2]] for details. Make sure the Venus GX is running v2.06 or later - early shipments of Venus GX units ran v2.05.   - The built-in WiFi in the Venus GX has a very low signal strength - unfortunately.
