Watchmon 4 Can bus, anyone got it working?
(06-10-2018, 07:29 PM)CarelHassink Wrote: New project, 
testing canbus with Batrium WM4 Venus GX Victron Quattro 48V/5000/100-100. 
+ 14S4P GS YUASA LEV50N @200Ah 52.5V 10.5Kwh batterybank

OK got it working,...
at least I see in devices section of Venus the Batrium as battery,
see photo 1, + other screen shots,
only in Telemetry, "remote life" voltage actual + current actual when charging/discharging stays empty.

Q: did someone come across this??, and found a way to solve this??

best Carel

The actuals reported come from the Victron inverter, the remote targets are sent from the BMS.

Screen shots do not show any obvious gaps from the the step by step guide

Can you send us your snapshot report via email to have a look at you configuration and the live telemetry provider of battery management for lithium cells
Thanks for the support offered,

but while discharging battery bank to empty, with the 2Kw electric heater, we ran into an issue,
Gigavac contactor had welded contacts, 
and system was not shutdown @2.75V cell voltage, had to manually flip the breaker fuse....

Now, before taking the snapshot, need to replace main contactor, 
will not use the other Gigavac (rated 150A too) as shown in photo's,
clearly I need something bigger.

I'll present the snapshot of system later this day.

I have had good success with the LSIS GER250 contactors, they have integrated pre-charge gubbins and magnetic arc extinguishing. Well built, cheap off eBay from a guy in the UK.
