The Color Control GX is the communication-centre of your installation. It offers at-a-glance live information, and lets you control all products connected to it.
Original name: Color Control GX
Original code: BPP010300100R
Color Control GX
The Color Control (CCGX) provides intuitive control and monitoring for all Victron power systems.
The list of Victron products that can be connected is endless: Inverters, Multis, Quattros, MPPT solar
chargers, BMV battery monitors, Lynx Ion + Shunt and more.
VRM Online Portal
Besides monitoring and controlling products locally on the CCGX itself, all readings are also
forwarded to our free remote monitoring website: the VRM Online Portal. To get an impression, try
the demo on https://vrm.victronenergy.com. See also the screenshots below.
Remote Console on VRM
Monitor, control and configure the CCGX remotely, over the internet. Just like standing in front of the
device, everything can also be done remotely. The same functionality is also available on the local
network, Remote Console on LAN.
Victron Remote Management: VRM

Automatic genset start/stop
A highly customizable start/stop system. Use state of charge, voltage, load and other parameters.
Define a special set of rules for quiet times, and optionally a monthly test run.
When connected to the internet, all data is sent to the VRM Portal. When there is no internet
connection available, the CCGX will store the data internally, up to 48 hours. By inserting a micro SDcard or USB stick, more data can be stored. These files can then be uploaded to the VRM Portal, or
offline converted with the VictronConnect app, for analysis.
Multis and Quattros, including split-phase and three-phase systems. Monitoring and control

Connecting a Victron GX Device online and setting up a GX GSM
The CCGX can be connected to internet with an Ethernet cable and via Wi-Fi. To connect via Wi-Fi, a
Wi-Fi USB accessory is required. The CCGX has no internal cellular modem: there is no slot for a simcard. Use an off-the-shelf GPRS or 3G router instead. See the blog post about 3G routers.
The CCGX can automatically update itself from the internet, when there is a new software
