Is raspberry pi essential

Recommended Posts

I have recently replaced my 8 Sonic gel batteries with a pylontech 3.5kwh. I use a RCT Axpert 5kva inverter with 4 canadian solar panels. Is it essential to install the raspberry pi also?

I assume you mean ICC running on a Pi

Essential? No

Beneficial? Yes

Apart from giving you more detailed insight into the performance of your system, it allows for both time-based or SOC-based (based on data from the Pylon BMS with the Pylon Comms cable) switching between SBU/SUB and Utility rather than the voltage guesstimate of the Axpert - which means you get a much more precise control of you system. Another benefit is that it enables you to change settings on your system from anywhere via VNC instead of having to be standing in front of your inverter

From my experience, I can highly recommend ICC and would always purchase it again

Just as a side note: I trust you have read about the charging voltage recommendations here in the forum (instead of using the voltages from the Pylon manual)
