The VE.Direct non-inverting remote on-off cable, with the part number ASS030550320, is designed to remotely control specific BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT Charge controller models. While it's not necessary for the larger SmartSolar models due to their onboard Remote on/off terminal, this cable becomes essential for other models. The charger is enabled when the signal on the cable is high and is disabled when the source signal is pulled low or left free-floating. However, it's important to note that a VE.Direct port can only serve one purpose. Thus, when this cable is in use, the Solar Charger VE.Direct port cannot be used for other functions, such as connecting to a GX device or a VE.Direct Bluetooth Smart dongle on a BlueSolar Charger.
- Enables remote control of specific BlueSolar and SmartSolar MPPT Charge controller models.
- Provides flexibility in setups where remote control is essential.
- Ensures efficient communication and operation within the Victron setup.
- Maximum input voltage: 70V
- Minimum input voltage needed for switch on: Approximately 6V
- Switch off level: Input voltage must be less than 1V or must be free-floating.
For models that feature a load output (75/10, 75/15, 100/15 & 100/20), it's necessary to use VictronConnect to adjust the settings. For other models, no setting changes are required as their VE.Direct RX pin is set to Remote on/off by default.
The cable can be wired between the VE.Bus BMS and a Solar Charger, providing seamless integration and control. An example schematic in the manual illustrates how the cable is connected between the VE.Bus BMS and the Solar Charger.
This product comes with a 5-year warranty.
