Victron Cerbo GX Mark 2: Enhanced Connectivity for Specific Applications

Overview: The Cerbo GX Mark 2 retains the familiar enclosure of its predecessor but introduces notable enhancements in its electronics. This revised model is particularly valuable for specific applications, such as the RV market in the US, where dual VE.Can interfaces are essential.

Key Upgrades:

  • Dual VE.Can Ports:

    The Mark 2 features two fully functional CAN bus ports, named VE.Can 1 and VE.Can 2. This is a significant upgrade from the previous model, which had one VE.Can and one BMS-Can port.
    • Isolated VE.Can 1 Port: The Mark 2 includes an isolated VE.Can 1 port, a new addition compared to previous models.
  • Repositioned RJ-45 Sockets:

    The RJ-45 sockets have been rotated 180 degrees for easier cable management.
  • Enhanced USB Functionality:

    All three USB ports are fully operational, unlike the previous model where one was dedicated to power supply only.
  • Advanced Digital Inputs:

    The Mark 2 can perform pulse counting, adding more versatility to its input options.

Application Specificity:

This revision is particularly advantageous for users in the US RV market who require both a Lynx Smart BMS (VE.Can connection) and an RV-C port.

Transition and Availability:

  • Long-Term Plan:

    In the long run, Victron plans to phase out the Cerbo GX and Cerbo-S GX, focusing on the production of the Mark 2.
  • Limited Initial Stock:

    The price difference between the Mark 1 and Mark 2 and the lack of a major launch event are strategic decisions to ensure the limited initial stock reaches users who need the dual VE.Can interfaces.
  • Phasing Out Older Models:

    While the Mark 1 will be gradually phased out, it remains a viable option for users who do not require the enhanced features of the Mark 2.

Current Product Lineup:

  • Cerbo-S GX:

    Offers a single VE.Can port.
  • Cerbo GX:

    Includes one VE.Can port and a BMS-Can port.
  • Cerbo GX Mark 2:

    Features two VE.Can ports, catering to more advanced connectivity needs.

Future Outlook: Victron anticipates continuing the production of only the Cerbo GX Mark 2 in the future, as it plans to deplete the stocks of the other models. This approach caters to users who do not require both VE.Can ports and prefer a more cost-effective solution.

The Cerbo GX maximises the performance of your systems components in real-time and keeps them in perfect tune. With its Dual Core Processor and the addition of an extra CAN-bus port you can now support even bigger systems; closely follow managed (lithium) batteries while the second port can support up to 25 simultaneously connected VE.Can solar chargers.

Panels and system monitoring

The Cerbo GX communication-centre allows you to always have perfect control over your system from wherever you are and maximises its performance. Simply connect through the Victron Remote Management (VRM) portal, or access directly, using the separate GX Touch 50, a MFD or our VictronConnect app thanks to its added Bluetooth capability. This latest addition to the GX-range combines all the best of connectivity, redefining smart power solutions in every way.

Perfect monitoring & control

Instantly monitor the battery state of charge, power consumption, power harvest from PV, generator, and mains, or check tank levels and temperature measurements. Easily control the shore power input current limit, (auto)start/stop generator(s) or change any setting to optimise the system. Follow up on alerts, perform diagnostic checks and resolve challenges remotely. The Cerbo GX turns any power challenge into an effortless experience.

Maximise your system performance

The Cerbo GX maximises the performance of your systems components in real-time and keeps them in perfect tune. With its Dual Core Processor and the addition of an extra CAN-bus port you can now support even bigger systems; closely follow managed (lithium) batteries while the second port can support up to 25 simultaneously connected VE.Can solar chargers. The new NMEA 2000-out support has the GX easily integrated into any boats network. Four tank- and four temperature ports as well as 3 VE.Direct ports, 3 USB ports, 4 digital inputs and 2 relays allow you to expand control to a new level. Maximising systems performance was never this easy.

Expand your view

The optional GX Touch 50 display allows you to have an instant overview of your system and adjust settings in the blink of an eye. Its super slim 5 inch waterproof design, top-mountable setup and its simple installation bring a lot of flexibility when creating a crisp and clean dashboard.

Simple mounting and configuration

The Cerbo GX is now optimised to more than meet the standards of installer professionals. The device is easily mountable on a DIN-Rail (with DIN35 adapter small, not included) and its separate touchscreen can now be bolted on top of a dashboard, eliminating the need to create perfect cut-outs (like with the Color Control GX) and is connected through just one cable, taking away the hassle of having to bring many wires to a dashboard. Its new Bluetooth feature enables a quick connection and configuration via our VictronConnect app.

Outsmart any power challenge

The Cerbo GX serves endless purposes, extending perfect control to the most diverse applications. For solutions including generators, such as Marine, or Backup & Off-grid, it will auto-start/stop your generator, or delays ignition until the end of ‘quiet’ periods. For Energy Storage Systems it keeps backup batteries at 100%, kicks-in during power-cuts and diverts excess (solar) power to self-consumption, saving you money. For RV and Emergency vehicles it keeps vital systems function flawlessly. But that’s just to name a few...
