Firmware v1.8 for the MG Energy Monitor released
The MG Energy Monitor is used more and more in combination with MG’s battery systems. Recently firmware version v1.8 for the MG Energy Monitor has been released. Changing settings has been made even easier, thanks to this elegantly designed touch-screen display.
An overview of the newest features after installing this latest firmware.
After updating to version 1.8 a QWERTY keyboard will be available. This makes it easier to enter text-fields like your password and for instance to give a name to your installation.
Give a name to your MG system
Your system name will be visible on the touch-screen panel. Changing the name can be done quick and easy.
With the energy monitor all required settings can be made for installing, configuring and commissioning of the MG battery system.
To protect the system against unwanted changes, different protection levels have been added to the newest firmware:
- all access
all device and systems settings are available
- local access
changes are only allowed to device settings. System settings are locked
- protected access
System and device settings are locked
only a limited selection of general device settings is still available
This setting is the recommended protection level
As a standard the temperature measurements are displayed in Celsius. After installing the update to v1.8 this can be displayed in Fahrenheit as well.
Current limit setting
It is now possible to change both the charge and discharge current limits for the MG battery system. This is useful to limit the shore power current whenever that’s needed.
The Bluetooth module on the Master LV BMS can be enabled by the energy monitor after updating to the newest firmware. More information about the bluetooth implementation will follow soon.
Installation of the energy monitor is easy. Connect the MG Energy Monitor directly to the RJ45 or M12 CAN-bus port on the Master LV. Customers of an existing MG battery installation can order the MG energy monitor and integrate it with a running system.
Combination with other panels
In the example below both the CCGX from Victron Energy and the MG Energy Monitor are integrated in the same system. The MG Energy Monitor can be installed in the battery room close to the batteries. This setup ensures that all system settings on the MG batteries can be changed according to your needs. No matter where in the world you are.
