Hi JDP I'm running Win XP. As mentioned when connecting directly to inverter com board being RS232 or USB Wacthpower works 100% even see both inverters from one connection. It's when you place the remote control panel between inverter and laptop when Wacthpower keeps logging com lost/ com restored looping.

Hi JDP

 

What program language did you use to program your software. I am using Delphi and want to do the same. What port sniffer did you use to get protocols. My inverter is connected via usb.

Would appreciate it if you can help me with a kick start maybe one command to receive some info from the inverter. Basically i want to switch the  inverter from solar to utility on a specific time. I will share my code if you like after.

 

Regards

Manie

It is unlikely you can use the remote control and USB/Serial port for connecting to the PC at the same time.

 

As far as I could tell they are running across the same serial interface.

 

Serial is a point-to-point protocol. So multiple devices on single serial interface would not work.

Hi Manie, welcome to the forum.  Glad to see another Delphi developer - not many of us still around. I'm also going to give it a go at some stage, but I have a bit too much on my plate currently. Please keep us posted if you make any progress.  :)

Delphi... hehehe. Waaay back in 1995 I coded in something which was then called Turbo Pascal for windows. This eventually morphed into the first version of Delphi, but this is when I got introduced to Linux and so instead of taking up Delphi, I ended up taking up C! Then Kylix came onto the scene... but it was always commercial in some way, encumbered by licensing or something. The last I had to deal with that is some ancient software built in Kylix that we forever have to get going on new versions of Linux as the old libraries are no longer shipped with the new distros. Then there is project Lazarus, which is cool and all, but no good for porting old Kylix apps.

Do you think C is better than delphi .I wrote a lot of programs in delphi for the mine that i am working. The database programs and scada software for viewing purpose only. So basically when a pump or conveyor start you can see it life and also historical trends. Did some programs with the raspberry pi with python , switching on some lights etc.  Now the next mission is to try and get some values from the inverter

It wasn't really about better or worse. It was about what was available on the new OS I fell in love with. Pascal and Delphi wasn't available for it, and it came with a free C compiler (at the time that was a concept almost too great to imagine!)... so there I was :-)
