  1. I'll make some of this available via a write up once I have a bit of time. Those blocks were basically the stats block and I added some thresholds
  2. As a side project, I developed a semi-realtime dashboard using some open source components and some custom software that I wrote. My current setup is the following: I have a 8kW sunsynk inverter and 10kWh revov batteries. have a program running on a raspberry pi 2 that polls the wifi (solarman) dongle on my 8kw inverter. It writes the inverter data to json files every 30 seconds. I then have another program that uploads the json payloads to a google cloud server (on their free tier) running grafana and influxdb. I have most of the google cloud stuff on a docker image, so I can m
  3. Hi Methuselah, I'm currently busy with a similar setup: 8kw sunsynk & 12 panels x 430W. My reason for going with the sunsynk is that it's a true hybrid and can blend and prioritize energy from different sources. A question for you to ponder: why do you not go with more powerful solar panels? When you consider room for expansion, the material cost of installation (per panel), it might work out cheaper to go with 10x400W (or more) panels instead of 12x 340W. You just have to calculate how many panels you can efficiently string together for your inverter. For a deep dive, try t
  4. I received my inverter today and I realized that no wifi module was included as part of the package. Just be a aware of this detail that I missed
  5. Nope, I bought from them over the weekend. They sell to the public as well, you just have to register first I think there was one field that asked for a Company name, I just filled in "Private"
  6. I have found Herholdts to have the best prices for the sunsynk. R3k less than the competitors
  7. Hi All, I bought an inverter (sunsynk 8k hybrid) and I'm still looking for a good deal on a li-ion battery. I know I can safely go with a pylontech or dyeness and be done with it, but there are some other batteries that I have my eye on (averge, sun pays, etc.) This inverter has a can bus port for communicating to the battery's bms which brings me to my question, which might be stupid : Will any battery with a can bus port will be able to communicate with a inverter that has a can bus port? Is the can bus just a general transport layer and each vendor implements their protocol on to
  8. I have been looking for lithium ion batteries for a new solar setup for a while now. I'm about to buy some pylontech us3000 batteries, but the found the following batteries by clicking on a google add: http://solarenergyrsa.co.za/?product=12kwh-lithium-ion-batteries-with-10yrs-warranty-last-chance-yeah-end-stock-clearance-sale-50-off Now I know if something is too good to be true, it probably is. So this is either a scam or stolen batteries, but I'm intrigued if is it's somehow legit. So who's gonna buy one and let us know how it went?
