  1. I'm trying to retrieve essential and non-essential loads via nodered. Can anyone clarify the difference between the modbus registers that provide grid info: 167 - 172? And the difference between the various load registers: 176 - 178?
  2. The Max software should be the same as the King software, it's pretty horrible. I think your real options are Riot and solar assistant. Since you have CAN comms between inverter and BMS, solar assistant will show battery SoC without a PI to battery cable. If you add the PI to battery cable then you get cycle counts, temperature, etc. https://solar-assistant.io/shop/products/hubble_am
  3. That would be absolutely amazing thank you.
  4. Hi @Coulomb. I have a battery that supports the new voltronic LIB protocol. I'm trying to read data from it. Does the firmware you posted somewhere contain the bytes the inverter sends to the BMS to query it? I've tried various things and haven't received a response from the BMS yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi @Sc00bs Are there any settings required on the inverter to be able to read modbus via the Deye 8kW RS485 port? Currently I'm not getting a reply.
  6. The "Emulated BMS" of solar assistant is basically a software based SoC, or a "software shunt". From the description you can see it does coulomb counting, which is the same as Victron BMV or Victron inverter, etc. It's less acurate because a BMV takes better measurements but generally I find it works fine.
  7. Your case doesn't sound like the same issue. The issue discussed here is simply an inverter voltage warning. It sounds like your hit your battery low voltage cutoff. Are you using ICC or SolarAssistant?
  8. Note JacquesVDM started the thread by saying it's not for a raspberry pi: ESP8266 is much cheaper than a Pi, but probably need a bit more skills to get working. The closest thing to this for a Raspberry Pi is probably solar assistant: https://solar-assistant.io
  9. @isetech Home assistant will require it's own Pi and SD card. You run hass.io which is an operating system, you can't run Raspberry Pi Desktop or any other OS together with hass.io. There are technically ways that you can run home assistant without hass.io on Raspberry Pi Desktop, but if you are a new user it's probably not a good idea. Solar assistant is similar to home assistant meaning it's an operating system and not an application you run within Raspberry Pi Desktop. Both hass.io and Solar assistant is used as a network device, you don't plug in a screen, keyboard, mouse into it. I'm mentioning all of this because it sounds like you were expecting Raspberry Pi Desktop where you install home assistant and solar assistant, which is not true for either apps.
  10. I do that with solar assistant https://solar-assistant.io/help/power-management/axpert
  11. Hi Theo, can you confirm if solarman pro has real time data? It seems like solarman smart is not: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.igen.xiaomaizhidian&hl=en_ZA&gl=US&showAllReviews=true
  12. Slow intermittent data is not due to inverter, it's due to solarman monitoring device. There are other options that are real time up to the second, stores years of data on device and doesn't require internet to access it: https://solar-assistant.io
  13. Being able to export solar must be awesome. My PV is reduced during the day because I can't export and don't have load to use it, then my chart looks like this:
  14. If you have a battery comms cable from the Pi to the battery, then you can switch inverter mode based on the true SoC with software such as ICC or solar assistant. This page explains how it works: https://solar-assistant.io/help/power-management/axpert
  15. I don't see such a setting in the manual and also don't see it listed in solar assistant:
