-All new SmartSolar ​MPPT'​s ​support VE.Smart Networking. However some older versions of our hardware ​do **not** support VE.Smart Networking. ​list of the older //​incompatible//​ products and part-numbers - together with the part numbers of their compatible successors ​is as follows ​:+=== First production batches of SmartSolar MPPTs do not support VE.Smart Networking === 
 + 
 +All currently shipping ​SmartSolar ​MPPTs support VE.Smart Networking. However some older versions of those models ​do **not** support VE.Smart Networking. ​Those devices will also not become compatible later with a firmware update: the incompatibility is due to a hardware limitation in those devices. There is a work around: connect a [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​accessories/​ve-direct-bluetooth-smart-dongle|VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle]]. This **enables** VE.Smart Networking support. Both Voltage and Temperature sense will work. In such scenario the internal Bluetooth interface of the SmartSolar should not be used anymore as communication errors may occur - instead the VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle is to be used when connecting by phone or tablet. This is the list of the older //​incompatible//​ products and part-numbers - together with the part numbers of their compatible successors:

-Note that when listed as not compatible; they will also not become compatible later. The incompatibility is due to a hardware limitation in those devices. 
  
-Also note that connecting a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle (ASS030536011) to an incompatible SmartSolar charger, will **enable** VE.Smart Networking support for the SmartSolar (Voltage and Temperature sense). In such scenario the internal Bluetooth interface of the SmartSolar should not be used anymore as communication errors may occur - instead the VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle is to be used when connecting by phone or tablet.+
