In this section:

The Victron EM24 RS485 is a standard device to measure the power and energy of a 3-phase application.

Its data will be displayed on a GX device and our VRM portal.

1.1. Features

The EM24 RS485 can be configured for four different roles in a GX device such as the Cerbo GX:

  1. As a Grid meter and used as control input for an ESS System.

  2. To measure the output of a PV Inverter.

  3. To measure the output of a AC Genset.

  4. As an AC meter to measure a dedicated AC load circuit.

It offers two options for connection to a GX device:

  1. A wired connection, either by using the RS485 to USB interface with 1.8m or 5m cable length.

  2. A wireless connection via our Zigbee to USB and Zigbee to RS485 converter.
