@Manie well done. Time to take breather for a few days or at least the weekend. I guess I can just download and copy the file for usb to the ICC folder and all will be well. Or does one have to install the image again.

@Manie another great app from you. Worked first time with zero problems. Thanks a great deal for all the may late hours. ICC is as solid as Linux. Just works and does what it was intended to do.

Hi Manie,

For those who are not linux/pi fundi's, can you please explain what files need to be backed up. Also, I would assume, there needs to be a restore process. I can only find that the Solar.db file gets updated, but is there any other files that need to be saved and retrieved after rebuild to 1.1.3?

I'm planning to do mine tomorrow morning early, in the hope that i lose only a small amount of data. (00:00 to say 06:00). I'm doing a fresh install from image due to MQTT problems mentioned elsewhere.

Only the ICC executable, normally what i do is just to rename the file and copy the ICC file to the folder where the db is located /home/pi/ICC/ folder if if i am correct. If there is a bug  or something wrong with the app, you can then run the old one that you backed up

But i'am sure this version is stable as i dit over 160 hours.

So this mornings change had to be rolled back. 

Switched Pi off, inserted new SD Card with fresh image. Boot. Goto PC to VNC into Pi. Nothing. Ping the device. Nothing.

Then it dawned....I need to bring the Pi inside and connect to my LAN via cable, then configure Wifi, as my installation is remote from my DB. And the only place I can do this is in the house, using my TV as a screen. Eish. 

Later.

PS. I think I would also need Manie's intervention, as I have paid for the software during the week, so I think a new license key is needed.

Hi

I did one for the pip4048, and was working for one customer. However, i am struggling to get it working for another customer. I am not sure how Linux works on some Usb to Serial devices. @plonkster can maybe give us some tips . I change the div rules the same as the one that is working with the device number but does not seems to work with the one he have

If it has a driver for it, it simply comes up as a serial device named /dev/ttyUSBx (where x is some number), and you simply open that serial port at the correct baud rate and it just works. Depending on the capabilities of the chip in question, support ranges from simple serial comms to full flow-control. I've never had to go that deep, the stuff I need to talk to is 3-wire TTL serial (no flow control) running up to 115k200 with zero issues. I cannot imagine that the Axpert should be weird about it.

I help one guy in Australia with his and was working the first time. I tried to help another guy. looked up the serial and change the div rules. Did not want to work. I did not change the code as it should be working as it is working on the one inverter. However they have different serial to USB converters. I am a bit lost with this one.

Maybe something wrong here.

SUBSYSTEM=="tty", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1a86", ATTRS{idProduct}=="7523", SYMLINK+="Inverter"

Where can I download the latest PI image?

The Pi image is only for USB. Does your inverter support USB ?
