Hey Guys,

I was a long time ago on this forum,and still one of the best.

I need some info on this inverter before I order it (Mustek said they will get stock in the first week of March) I used Mecer Axpert 3kva MK plus for almost 3 years now with RPI and ICC and time to upgrade to 5kva

So with alot of problems and hassles with solar companies I find and order 2x 2.4KW Pylontech US2000 plus batteries,what I need to know is :

Is the Axpert King Compatible with ICC 

Do I need a special cable to connect the pylontech coms to the RPI via USB or is their now a better connection directly to the inverter via the "CAN" connection to get the correct SOC 

I will greatly appreciated if their is someone on the forum that have almost the same system that can tell me how accurate the SOC is on USB to RPI or direct on inverter is.

 

Thanx

Hi,

The newer Axpert Kings (Feb 2019 +) can communicate directly with the Pylontech batteries.  I think this would be a better solution as I had my RPI freeze a couple of times resulting in the batteries running dead.  I would still use the RPI & ICC for monitoring purposes.

Does the ICC solution work well for monitoring real-time usage from one's mobile phone? I have an Axpert King connected to Pylontech batteries with the custom cable, so that is working as it should, but can only monitor when physically standing in front of the system. Or is anyone aware of a wifi module for the Axpert King?

Thanx, I was reading about that somewhere,thats why I want to ask if someone is using the same related system that the pylontech can connect directly to the inverter if I am not mistaken its connecting via RJ45 connector,like same as normal network cable,hope I can extend that cable by crimping my own 🤔

ICC works great for remote monitoring.  It uses a raspberry PI that connects to your wifi.  You can monitor and control it from anywhere, I use VNC on my mobile to be able to log into the settings and desktop.  All stats are posted in realtime to a website for easy monitoring

Correct, it uses a RJ45 connector but requires a specific pin-out.  See attached

Hi,I use VNC or install anydesk on the RPI,then install anydesk on the mobile phone (Android/IOS) it work perfect for me...try it 😋

Dankie,I will look in too it,I use the network cable that came with my inverter and connect it to CAN port on the master pylontech,it reads my SOC 100% on selected AGM,but when select to user,it drops the SOC instant and voltage stay the same
