Agree, although you can buy the Raspberry Pi from the PiShop for a lot cheaper.

Manie sent me his banking details and the rest was easy.

Be aware that if you go my route and download the ICC software from Manie, it will not connect to your inverter until you have entered the key that he will supply once you have installed the software on the Pi. So, order your Raspberry Pi, download (and pay for) your ICC software, install it on the Pi (you do need a 16GB microSD card - don't forget the adapter for your PC as well as Win32Disk Imager (download it from web) mail Manie the ICC-PI id and he will send you the unlock key.

I'm wondering if I can move the software to a VM on my server instead - would be more convenient for me. I will check with Manie on this.

@Shockin  You will also need a Victron BMV700, BMV702 or BMV712 to supply accurate information about the battery status to ICC. The 702 haa a connection if you have 2 battery banks in parallel to detect imbalance and the 712 adds Bluetooth communications. You also need the BMV USB cable which is expensive lke the BMV and all Victron equipment. But then it is top of the ladder quality. If your inverter is a Voltronic or true clone, consider flashing it with @Coulomb and @weber 's outstanding improved firmware if available for your model. Be aware that there is always the possibility that you may brick your inverter. I have been fortunate that I have never had such a problem, having flashed my 2 Axperts and those of others many times.

You could perhaps get it all going with a demo version of ICC and then get the final activation code after paying fot ICC. The demo ICC also requires an activation code from Manie.

Never succeeded in opening this address. What I get is "Access from your area has been temporarily limited for security reasons." Is there another way to get in touch with them?
