  1. Good news: The USB interface Mars sent me finally works. I now can connect both, BMV and Voltronic, over USB to ICC. Before, under mixed communication (RS232 for Voltronic and USB for BMV) the connection failed every now and than: After 80 hrs ... 800 hrs of ICC running time. I learned that this might be a problem of Linux(!?). But now no longer its an issue. The replacement was not that complicated: make Inverter powerless: Power off, disconnect batteries and panels (by pulling fuses) disconnect old card, unscrew it screw in the new card and connect the three
  2. Hi everybody! I'm impressed how people in this forum support each other! Hope i can give back something in the future. Yes,, my cards looks exactly like the 2015 fotos in the pdf. I would be happy to buy one. Will send PM with address.
  3. Fotos of the inverter that has USB interface. The gen is connected to the green contacts. Foto of model label see above. As the RS232 interface and the USB are on the same board, the replacement board should contain both (USB is packed on the RS232). Neither RS232 nor USB is currently working.
  4. Hi all! My ICC is running so smoothly that i had no reason to use this forum.. But now i have read about the new feature within ICC: "GPIO". Has anybody used that already? I simply ask here for a search key within Amazon to find the "right" relay. The rest i assume is pi basics and a few cables..(i hope). Example: What relay should i order to switch on/off the pool pump (600W) using ICC/pi's GPIO function?
  5. Battery watts and SOC both com from BMV monitor, no? It's a USB cable with enlargement. May be the there is contact problem when it gets warmer..?
  6. I have OPzV batteries (lead-acid with gel). The manual says: The recommended operating temperature range for PowerSafe ® OPzV technology is -15°C to 40°C (Humidity <90%). Optimum life and performance is attained at +25°C. I won't have 40° in the battery cabinet. No need to cool the room.
  7. i just recognised that the operating temp of Axpert is up to 55°C.. Mine is currently running at 71° !! Here we have outside temps up to 32° right now. Also bad for the batteries. Should i cool the room?
  8. failures of SOC and Batt.watts are not in synch: SOC occurs more often.
  9. I'm terribly sorry I just have seen your post offering a USB interface card. Mine looks a bit different: see images. With PM you mean my postal address? I will not post it here rather directly to you.
  10. Very interesting discussion. The hint of changing the cable (RS232-USB) seems logic to me. The following graph comes from emoncms (local, on same pi as ICC). The first graph a posted came form ICC GUI. On this graph one can read the absolute value: It's one single value, but it is damages the graph! Eventually one could modify emoncms by specifying the y-range limits: Max +/- 8000w. btw, the soc has the same effect: It goes down to 0.00.
  11. I'm running two Axperts in parallel mode, monitoring with ICC 2.4.3. It happens rarely but regularly: The value of battery watts drops to -6'000'000!! Just for a millisecond. A normal curve looks like this (Axpert users know it) What is this? Is it a serious problem? A com problem with sql server? Above graphs come form ICC, so no communication involved. Other curves sometimes look similar, i.e. SOC.
  12. Hi Cem! only now i'm reading your messages, sorry! As the Axpert inverter and ICC are running very smoothly i don't check the forum very often. ICC currently is connected with RS232-to-USB cable. and... yes i still would like to have a USB port. I could use it as backup. My dealer/supporter explained me that this replacement part cannot be ordered. Serial: 92931506100847
  13. Hi everybody! The USB interface of my Axpert 5kva inverter is broken. Is anybody out there that does not use the USB interface? I'm running two Axpert 5KVA in parallel. One has RS232 the other has USB interface. Since months the USB interface is broken. The installer and salesman ordered vom Voltronic a replacement USB but received instead an RS232. He explained that Voltronic does not deliver replacement USB cards. (True? i don't know) I live in Spain, Costa Blanca, near Calpe/Denia, 100km south of Valencia Peter
  14. Hi all! did i report to this forum that everything is working now? After upgrading the firmware of the two Axperts 5KV the generator (red) connects to both Axperts and charges the batteries and at the same time feeds the loads (bypassing).
