  1. yebo. it was cold chilly Saturday afternoon, my pool pump was on, 800watt, wife switch both kids oil heaters on, assume 1000watt each, had the microwave on, 1000watt and then the TV, computers etc, total, approx 4000watt. ... oh wait, tumble dryer was also on. I run a OpenEnergyMonitor installation with induction based current clamps around every one of my circuits so could go look after the even to see exactly what my load was and from where. Normally not a problem, battery was full so some load came from there as being inverted, some came off the panels as direct invention, totally just under 3000watt and the balance from the Grid, We have a "sad" unstable grid, had a voltage fluctuation, big enough that the inverter went into protect myself and house mode, isolating the grid for a second or 2... not realising the load was over it's 3000watt capability, so by the time it cut the grid off, it discovered it was in overload land and shut down to protect itself. When it came back... the microwave was off, dropping the load by odd 1000watt, making it happy land, needless to say the oil heaters were shut down. G
  2. Well Jaco knows what he's doing and well I work in IT so know my way around the keyboard and Linux OS's etc. G
  3. In this case I did the ssh and executed the commands... thanks for sharing your knowledge with everyone. G
  4. ... sorry, never came back, Jaco assisted me (Than you thank you), my unit has been FW updated, the MPPT's I also completed myself, so everything on newest FW now. G
  5. thanks. problem is I'm in JBay so difficult to "quickly" loan a unit. G
  6. As per other thread, I need to update the FW on my Multiplus 2, and the original installer is not coming back, other than finding a new service technician... who has any of these cables ? what software will I need, where will I get the FW. G
  7. Hi all Can someone indicate who all the possible ... service agents are for Victron on the East cost. Jeffreysbay or Port Elizabeth ? Need my FW updated on my Multiplus 2, and the original installer is not responding. G
  8. Hi all Can someone point me to: where do I configure/set the "Loss of Mains detection" setting. Need to check if I'm configured on Type A or B at the moment. G
  9. I know how to make a page full screennnnnnn. Inside the page thats full screen, that view is part of the remote console view, which does not go full screen. G
  10. thing with the iPad idea is you open the URL and then go remote console, which open a smaller "Remote Console" view onto the larger screen, Trying to get/show the screen as attached, as a information centre for the wife, G
  11. ... guys, I know what my phone can do, thinking, I got a old iPad, might have to get a dedicated power supply for that, print a bracket and fit that against the cupboard and point it at the management url. was going Victron had a remote screen "add on" by now for the VenusGX. G
  12. Hi all So I got a VenusGX as the brains of my system, located in the garage. Thinking, can I add a Color Control GX in the kitchen, as a display, or what other option do I have, ie not keen on a Raspberry pi with a LCD. Rather go Victron build. G
  13. true... it is there still, What we removed was the old style timer. G
  14. What I rather did, instead of timer, I swopped the normal geyser breaker out for a contractor, and then manage the contractor using a sonoff, that has a build in timer and well integrated that with my Home Assistant setup. even without the HA setup, the web interface to the sonoff (oh I flashed with Tasmoto) just made it easier to toggle the power at any time if I wanted the geyser to be on at a different time, or change the timers program.
