They can be used to measure & monitor all kinds of temperature-inputs. Temperature senders are not included. The required sensor is ASS000001000 - Temperature Sensor QUA/PMP/Venus GX. (Note that this is __not__ the same as the BMV temperature accessory.). Temperature range is -20C to +70C. Actually it can measure up to 100C, but the sensor is not made to withstand temperatures above 70C long term. Note that this is intended as a crude temperature sensor, and not calibrated. A deviation of +/- 2C is to be expected.

   - The 5V output on the Venus GX can be used to power, for example, a USB hub. Note that its output is not current limited or otherwise protected, and it shares the internal power supply in the Venus GX: overdrawing from it will result in shutdown(s) of the Venus GX. It is recommended to install a fuse for prevention.   - The 5V output on the Venus GX can be used to power, for example, a USB hub.

-  - Though the Maxi GX, MultiPlus-II GX and EasySolar-II GX all have a dual set of RJ-45 sockets labelled VE.Can, this port is actually a dedicated BMS-Can port. It can only be used to connected to managed batteries like Freedomwon, BYD, Pylontech and others, at 500kbps. The hardware does not meet the requirements for a VE.Can port; and thus it is not possible to use to port to connect Victron products such as the SmartSolar VE.Can MPPT product range. Note that current version of Venus OS firmware still allows to select the VE.Can function and other baudrates. The result will be unreliable, and future firmware versions will lock the feature to BMS-Can only and 500kbps. +  - Though some early batches of the Maxi GX, MultiPlus-II GX and EasySolar-II GX all have a dual set of RJ-45 sockets labelled VE.Can, this port is actually a BMS-Can port. It can only be used to connected to managed batteries such as Freedomwon, BYD, Pylontech, BlueNova, MG Energy Systems and others, at 500kbps. The hardware does not meet the requirements for a VE.Can port; and thus it is not possible to use to port to connect Victron products such as the SmartSolar VE.Can MPPT product range. Note that for a while Venus OS firmware did allow to select the VE.Can function and other baudrates. The result will be unreliable, and therefor they have been updated to lock into BMS-Can only at 500kbps. 
-  - A BMS-Can port is a port dedicated to be used for connecting managed batteries, like BYD, Pylontech, Freedomwon and others, only. It is not possible to connect Victron VE.Can products to that port. To connect such managed battery, use our [[https://www.victronenergy.com/cables/ve-can-to-can-bus-bms|special cables]], and see documentation [[https://www.victronenergy.com/live/battery_compatibility:start|here]]. Connect the side labelled 'VE.Can' into the BMS-Can/VE.Can port on the GX Device. And connect the other side to the battery. The baudrate of a BMS-Can port is fixed to 500kbps.+  - A BMS-Can port is a port dedicated to be used for connecting managed batteries, such as Freedomwon, BYD, Pylontech, BlueNova, MG Energy Systems and others, only. It is not possible to connect Victron VE.Can products to that port.

   - The GX Touch 50 connects to the Cerbo GX using a single cable; fixed permanently to the GX Touch 50, which on the other end splits into a USB and a connector for the video signal. Both need to be inserted into the Cerbo GX, taking one of the three USB ports. The USB part of the cable is used to power the GX Touch 50. The cable is 2 meters in length; and can not be extended in length.   - The GX Touch 50 connects to the Cerbo GX using a single cable; fixed permanently to the GX Touch 50, which on the other end splits into a USB and a connector for the video signal.

 +  - The secondary CAN port, available on some GX devices as per table above, can be configured to be used as a BMS-Can port, as well as other profiles. For details, see manual.
 +  - DIN rail mounting requires additional accessory - [[https://www.victronenergy.com/accessories/din35-adapter-small|DIN35 Adapter]].  
 +  - On the Cerbo GX, the USB socket closest to the HDMI connector can only be used to power a GX Touch. That USB port can not be used for any data related functions such as VE.Direct to USB cables, USB-sticks, USB-GPS-es, or other common USB usages. It’s a power port only, no data.\\ Future versions of Venus OS will disable all data related features of this port, so it should not be used for anything other than powering the GX Touch screen. Attempting to use this port for data purposes may lead to corrupted VRM data on USB sticks or unreliable communication to for example a Solar Charger when using a VE.Direct to USB cable.
 +  - The digital inputs can be used for open/closed monitoring of alarms, for example doors, or fire- or bilge alarms. One the Venus GX model (only that one) the digital inputs can also be used for pulse counting. Maximum frequency TBD. The digital inputs on the Cerbo GX and other devices are (unfortunately!) not able to do pulse counting.
