   - 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 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 ​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 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. +  - 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.

-  - 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.

   - 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.
