    ICC +Pi black screen

    Rufus Version 2.14.1086 is the one that worked eventually. Found lots of errors (250 were ism) on Kingston media (16gb). Ran a bad block check while installing the ICC image suspect a power outage when COCT where cutting trees in the area.

    On https://lime-technology.com/search/ They use the same engine. I can search for any three letter word or acronym and ...... they are on Tapatalk.

    I think this is related to DNS on the network connection(wifi) as the update software option does not list the previous updates for ICC either. My observation too.
  6. Hi, When I search for anything,be it for icc software right now as I cannot for the love of mike get the email alert to work for gmail on the PI, it does nothing.it searches finds nothing and big brother then says wait 19 seconds for the next try. I have come across this a few times.It has worked once or twice,but I feel it should work for any query be it one or two or more words. What has happened to the software sub category too? Thanks,

    Goodwe Hybrid tripping conlog bec44

    I have to use fans in my garage. The inverter goes above 50C at times. In winter not so much. One fan under the GTI and one above extracting. I am assuming the fans can also be linked to a thermal device to turn them on when required as the temperature of the inverter and environment is related to the amount of sunlight. At least when the council installs the prepaid meter, the load would also be serving a purpose other than drawing energy.

    Axpert 5Kw Switching On Delay

    What version were they running before flashing? Was it at 72.40 before the upgrade? Did you jump to BLC73.00c from 72.40 or run the flash process with every mod that was produced?

    VE direct usb 2 PI 4 ICC

    Hi Folks, I bought a usb cable for the BMV 702 to usb on the PI.It does not work(recognise the device) On windows it does.The ic software and windows sees the device. I don't have a key for the ICC windows version so I cannot test it. What is needed on Pi-2 to get this to work? Thanks.

    Axpert Battery Voltage Spikes

    In my setup I have a dual mppt that heats my cylinder and when it has reached the desired temp of 60 degrees it (the GW controller) changes to the second port and charges or floats the battery bank. I had this like this for 6 months as I did not have an inverter connected to the bank.(another story) The new old Axpert(2015 model) is also connected to this bank. The monitoring device popped which I used to monitor Volts Amps Watts and Kwh's and caused the output of the DC to switch permanently to the battery output (or second HWC output) hence the fluctuation in the voltages experienced. The older model mppt does not come with monitoring. I noticed this (via email) yesterday when I changed the license on ICC(Thursday evening). I had a trial ICC license on the Pi.I did not notice that change in Hot water temp as the AC must have kicked in. My AC setting on the GW controller is 15 degrees less so as not to use Alternating Current.

    Had practically no load on the batteries today so the load was +-15 Watts. After adding a load,

    Switching to grid gives me this error : Fault : Bus Over Fault Time : 13:32:37 And back to battery Fault Fixed : Bus Over Fix Time : 13:33:09 Voltages are still in a fluctuation between 59 and 63. Time for a repackaging and off to supplier ?
