  • Fridge temperature monitoring with Victron Equipment? Can it be done?

    I was reading last night more on the Victron parts I have coming. From what I have read a second temperature sensor can be set up. However Victron does not indicate a use other than battery temps. Sensor part number is ASS000100000

    So I was wondering if there is any way to add a sensor to the inside of the fridge and have the Multiplus watching it? Only problem is my fridge is in the slide and a long way away from the Cerbo GX and Multiplus location. Was wondering if cold be set up via Bluetooth and the VE Buss smart dongle

    I know I am probably nuts when there are probably dozens of stand alone fridge remote sensors set ups out there.


    Later folks

    BTW Victron has refreshed their web site and appears to have a bunch of new products and assessors. Its easier to find things I think. Here is an example of something I have not seen before Its a DC to DC converter. https://www.victronenergy.com/dc-dc-...25a-50a#manual

      Thanks Mike
      I was hoping it might work, but I guess not.

      As for the rvwisper I would end up yelling at it

        Victron got back to me. Very fast response. Not sure what this means, but it appears with a long enough wire to tie the sensor back to the Crebo GX it might work. If it just has a read out function does than mean it is only instantaneous and I wont see a track over time?

        Hello,

        On a Cerbo a sensor can be placed , which only has a read out function.
        This can not be done through Bluetooth.



        Best regards
        Met vriendelijke groet

          It this video he mentions refrigerator temperature https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wheKaU2_qw

          Now I am wondering how long of lead I can put on the sensor and have it still work reliably?

            Yes, curious about the length.
            Reading thru some of the community/victronenergy forum it sounds like the Cerbo GX / Venus GX use LM335 chips for the temperature sensors inside the lug.
            Temp sensors for Cerbo GX - https://community.victronenergy.com/...-cerbo-gx.html
            Venus GX temperature inputs - https://community.victronenergy.com/...re-inputs.html

            Ti.com data sheet shows some wire lengths: 10.4 Mounting the Sensor at the End of a Cable, 24 Awg 400' to 800', 22 Awg 625' to 1250'.
            Guess I'll get a few LM335Z/NOPB and LM335AZ/NOPB to play with sometime.

              I am going to add this to my Round-2-It list for later. Have a few more parts coming and then to set up my lug crimper to a work bench and get organized. My multiplus is delayed a bit and the breakers are coming from China (airfreight) with a hand off to USPS - what could go wrong with that
