Q: What is required for the communication between SOLARMD batteries and a GX device?
A: It is essential to use the CAN-bus connection of a GX device, such as the Color Control GX (CCGX) or Venus GX (VGX), with the SOLARMD batteries for the keep-alive signal, communication of charge and discharge limits, error codes, and state of charge. The minimum required firmware version for the GX device when used with Solar MD batteries is v 2.15. It is recommended to use the latest firmware version on all connected devices, including CCGX/VGX, Inverter/Charger, and MPPTs, as there are regular updates to improve performance and reliability
