  1. Hi Frans, Sorry to hear that, the RIOT just connects the the master battery and will see all the batteries in parallel. Should really not be hard to install. Herewith the manual. I will ask one of the techs from RIOT to give you a call and get it all connected. Please PM me your contact details. RIOT CloudLink Installation Manual 2_1_8.pdf
  2. Hi Nvw1104, You can download the latest manual here: https://www.hubblelithium.co.za/uploads/1/3/5/0/135079623/riot_cloudlink_installation_manual_2_1_8.pdf There is only 1 Serial port on the RIOT, so you can either plug into the X-100 Serial or the Inverter serial. I would suggest connect the inverter serial port and it will monitor the inverters and battery SOC through the inverter. The Cloudlink cannot do 2-way comms with the X-100. All the other models like the AM series can do 2-way comms through CANbus from the battery to the serial of the inverter. For more assistan
  3. Hi Coulomb, We dropped the LIB protocol as Axpert decided to drop the LIB protocol. From what we understand they are looking at CANbus. We are not sure when or if they will impliment CAN bus. However you can see on the Axpert MAX documentaiton they mention CANbus, but its not active yet. We decided to only support CAN bus ourselfes as modbus is too unstable. All our models now have CANbus and works with any CANbus inverter. The ICC still works with Hubble for Axpert.
  4. Hi Connect Systems, Yes. Victron will change the CCL & DCL to 200Amp when 2 batteries are connected. For every extra battery the CCL & DCL will increase by 100Amp. If you want to run the advanced Victron Extended Protocol Canbus and get advanced parameters, battery temperature and cell voltages from the battery then you can install a RIOT between the master battery and the Victron GX. The RIOT protocol encapsulates the Victron Extended Protocol. It is one of the 5 CANbus protocols that make up the complete RIOT Protocol. Below is a RIOT connected with a AM-2 and a V
  5. Hi Jacques, You can connect the RIOT directly into your VMIII now and it will work. Do you have the RS232 to RJ45 connector? If not we can supply. You will also have 2 dashboards soon. One specifically for Inverter & Battery combined. Once you have it pluged directly into your inverter please let us know and we can check/update the graph. If you can please send the support request to [email protected] and the helpdesk technicians can resolve the issues.
  6. Hi Lewis, Master battery: PIN 1 - ON PIN 2 - OFF PIN 3 - OFF PIN 4 - OFF Slave A: PIN 1 - OFF PIN 2 - ON PIN 3 - OFF PIN 4 - OFF Use a normal cat5 / computer network cable and connect the right side RS485 (2x RS485 ports together) to the next battery pack. The CAN will double up on th AH charge/discharge and your battery AH will double up.
  7. Hi All, Firmware update and changelogs have been added to the site for those that would like to see what new updates are added per over the air firmware releases. https://www.riotsystems.cloud/firmware-updates.html
  8. Hi yellowtapemeasure, The RIOT has 2x CAN ports for this exact reason. Plug the Sunsynk into the RIOT and the other CAN from the Pylontech batteries also into the RIOT. The 2x RIOT CANbus ports acts as a HUB. The RIOT will read your Pylontechs in a few months 9once OTA firmware is done) over CANbus and the Sunsynk CAN data and cloud it. RIOT is looking at the RS232 of the pylontech also for more admin level data access.......
  9. Hi Kill_switch, Correct. There are 2x CAN ports, both ports use same pin layout as Pylontech to keep most inverter cables compatible. Layout for both CAN ports are: PIN 4: CAN-H PIN 5: CAN-L PIN 2: GROUND The Included CAT5 cable will work on CANbus to the Battery, or CANbus from the RIOT to the inverter. However reverse CAN is being implimented for this to enable Axpert integration. The Sunsynk CAN packets are being received by the RIOT, however it is not being processed and sent to the cloud yet. That is scheduled to be completed in the next 2-3 months if all goes
  10. Hi Community, Seems the forum is decending into just degrading brands and negative commenting which is very unfortunate, as the powerforum is a great wealth of knowledge for power backup and solar enthusiasts. We're not dodging questions, we dont live on this forum, and we are not affiliated to powerforum. Seems if we dont answer questions immediately then there are negative views. We only check this forum once a week if that. If you have questions please contact us through our official channels or on our website contact form. For support and technical questions please contact us
  11. Hi P1000, Alot of questions. Im going to make it short. 1. I only know of 1 company in SA that makes their own BMS, we looked at this but it's just too expensive compared to industry leading imported and international certified BMS units. 2. No charge memory but if they drain flat they damaged. 3. Our BYD and CATL cells are rated 2.5C. You can discharge and charge them at 2.5C but their life goes down a bit and there is no need to have 250Amp drawn out of a 48V system usually. We can install a 2.5C BMS, but it will increase the cost of the battery way too high and will be
  12. Hi P1000, First of all interesting post. We have been following it and not commenting as to stay neutral. Regarding spares. - BMS: Our BMS units are manufactured in the East and they are double coated to prevent corrosion. The BMS have been approved for Telecomms and datacentres and has CE approval etc. We have 2 service centres, JHB and CT. We order a 5% spare holding over the required minimum for BMS units per container. We currently have local spares of BMS units in JHB & CT. To date we have not had a BMS fail. We have had LCD display issues on 2 batteries but we swap
  13. Hi Kill_switch, You dont require a RIOT to make the AM-2 work on the Sunsynk. The AM-2 has built in CANbus. You can use the RIOT for cloud monitoring in your case.
  14. Hi Jacques69, Please Pm me your serial number and your email address. We can set it up manually and provide the login.
  15. Hi Kill_switch, Good question. When we looked at the design with holes on top it created a problem for dust and particle, especially water incursion if there is a leak from a water pipe above the battery etc. The only heat being generated will be from the BMS charger which is situated at the bottom when charging at a high rate, however the temperature of this is neglegable. The BMS has temperature control and shutdown if the temperature gets too high or will start throttling the charge/discahrge back if above 65 degrees temperature. The internal prismatic cells we use generate almos
