  1. Thank you. I am now running solar assistant. It's brilliant.
  2. Thank you for this. I am glad there is minimal loses. I failed to get another 4 by 265w panels and compromised on the 335w panels.
  3. Evening everyone hoping someone can help me with the best solar panel array design for my solar install. Must inverter has a VOC of 145V. 2 panels are 265watts with 30.6volts 8.66amps Imp 8.66A Vmp 30.6V Isc 9.23A Voc 37.7V 4 panels are 335watts with 38v 8.82amps Imp 8.82A Vmp 38V Isc 9.43A Voc 46.1V How should i wire these for maximum output. There are all poly panels.
  4. It's stopped working and a fresh install is not working. Anyone able to get the bionicweb script working?
  5. You had a productive Lock Down!!! How can i get this on a raspberry pi
  6. Evening. Please explain how to interlink and address 2 batteries. Do i use a or b ports of rs485 ports. Also once connected good do i get the batteries to sync up?
  7. I did. The secret was using a usb cable and setting device to /dev/hidraw0. My usb serial cable was not supported on the raspberry pi. There is need for a quality serial adaptor that has the prolific chipset. usb cable was easier.
  8. Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0665:5161 Cypress Semiconductor USB to Serial That's a usb cable connection? If yes it will identify as hidraw#... 0 is usually the default if you have no other usb devices connected. dmesg | grep -i usb will show you which come to specify in the config file. After that the homeassist just started pitching the values
  9. You are not liking for a tty device is you use the micro usb or printer type cable. Tty is only for usb serial cables. From your entries hidraw0 is the one you want. Let me do this and revert. However the system does not seem to see my inverter connected. I will install again while the pi is already connected to the inverter. Thank you for the speedy reply.
  10. Thank you good night.

  11. 10. went to HA ip and tried my user names and went to configuration entities and enabled all entities, 9 went up but any to do with the inverter remain marked with an x. Pressed a botton on home screen and got " voltronic_AC_grid_voltage SETTINGSRELATED This entity does not have a unique ID, therefore its settings cannot be managed from the UI." 11. Rebooted computer... and now have sensor.voltonic battery not available and may trainables in orange with exclamation mark.
  12. Redid a new installation and ssh'ed into the pi 4, while it is already connected to only one inverter, an axpert king 5kw 1. sudo apt update 2. sudo apt upgrade 3. Then run script from your github after the full update on a fresh install. curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/BionicWeb/AxpertPi/master/axpertpi.sh?$(date +%s) | sudo bash 4. after above its saying: " Resolving deltas: 100% (121/121), done. ERROR: Couldn't connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localhost - is it running?" 5. Running " sudo docker ps" Cannot connect to the Docker daemon at unix:///var/run/docker.sock. Is the docke r daemon running?" 6. I attach my ssh log. 7 went to https://github.com/docker/compose/issues/6677, and executed the following to see if after reboot i can contunue sudo groupadd docker sudo usermod -aG docker $USER newgrp docker 8. After reboot i have run 3 again. and then sudo docker ps. its now working. 9. Did the following and noted device was not on ttyUSB0 it was expecting direct USB. so edited that everthing elso not changed. cd /opt/ha-inverter-mqtt-agent # Configure the 'device=' directive (in inverter.conf) to suit for RS232 or USB.. sudo nano config/inverter.conf install error.txt
  13. Let me do this and revert. However the system does not seem to see my inverter connected. I will install again while the pi is already connected to the inverter. Thank you for the speedy reply.
  14. Hi. I have tried the script. I have an axpert king on the latest firmware. Lsusb sees the 2 inverters on a usb serial. Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1a86:7523 QinHeng Electronics HL-340 USB-Serial adapter Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1a86:7523 QinHeng Electronics HL-340 USB-Serial adapter After running all the install commands i done know how to stand up the container for docker. If i use the command from nedkelly docker-compose up -d Nothing happens. You to this point your instructions are clear. After the above nedkelly seems instructive but nothing happens side i am using your script not his. I am at wits end. Do you have a similar guide for non techies? Please help.
