Victron Energy Direct non inverting remote on/off cable
Enhance the control of your solar power system with the Direct non-inverting remote on/off cable, designed to seamlessly manage BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT charge controllers. This cable allows you to remotely control your charge controllers, providing added convenience and flexibility to your solar setup.
Key Benefits of the Victrion Energy Direct non inverting remote on/off cable:
- Remote Control: Utilise the Direct non-inverting remote on/off cable to conveniently control your BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT charge controllers from a distance. This feature streamlines your solar power management, offering ease of use and efficient control.
- No Onboard Terminal Required: Specifically designed for models without an onboard Remote On/Off terminal, this cable ensures compatibility and effective remote operation. Note that larger SmartSolar models come with an onboard terminal, eliminating the need for this cable.
- Enable and Disable Charging: The charger is activated when the cable signal is high and deactivated when the source signal is pulled low or left free-floating. This functionality provides you with precise control over your solar charging process.
- VE.Direct Port Considerations: It’s important to note that when using this cable, the VE. Direct port cannot be utilised for other purposes, such as connecting to a GX device or a VE. Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle on a BlueSolar charger. This ensures dedicated functionality for remote on/off control.
- Configuration: For models featuring a load output (75/10, 75/15, 100/15 & 100/20), VictronConnect is needed to adjust settings. Other models have their VE. Direct RX pin set to Remote on/off by default, requiring no additional configuration.
Note that when using this cable, it’s not possible to use the VE.Direct port for any other purpose. Such as connecting to a GX device, or for example a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle on a BlueSolar charger.
Elevate your solar power system control with the Victron Energy Direct non-inverting remote on/off cable. Please note that it’s not compatible with VE.Bus BMS or smallBMS usage. Take command of your solar energy with this versatile and efficient remote control solution.
