I assume that your Mecer inverters are Axperts - correct?

Then you could look into using ICC running on a Raspberry Pi, which you can remotely access from your Mac (or smartphone/tablet)

I am not sure, were do I check if it is Axperts, and where is the best place to purchase a Raspberry Pi. Sorry for al the questions, but I am only start to learn from this forum now

If you post photos from the sticker on the side of the inverters, then we should be able to help you with that. I would assume they are, but just to confirm

You can either buy the complete kit (Pi and ICC software) from the ICC website or purchase the Pi separately from e.g. here and only purchase the ICC software directly from the ICC website

Which batteries are you running?

Yes, I believe so.

An Axpert will have a distinctive bar-code sticker on the side, as @wolfandy mentioned, and a number of other give-aways. If you need more, see my Do I Own a Clone post. It's a continuing frustration to me that Voltronic Power don't identify all their machines as being made by them. It could be a small sticker with some anti-copying feature that says something like "Proudly Manufactured by Voltronic Power in China; see your reseller for after sales service".

Thanks

The inverter is a genuine Axpert (no clone), so ICC will work with it. One of my inverters is actually exactly the same model and built in the same month/year 😉

If you have not yet upgraded the firmware to @Coulomb's patched firmware 73.00e, then I would highly recommend doing so

Thank you very much for the help, I will definitely upgrade and get the Raspberry Pi and software

Hi, which system will be the best to buy from ICC for my solar system, keep in mind I have a Mac computer, I also assume the Pi4 without the pylontech cable might be the one. And how do I load the new firmware to my inverters. Thank you

normal kit like this is all you need. But I see that all of them are listed as 'Out of stock'. I would suggest dropping Manie an email at [email protected] and ask what he has available

The Pi comes pre-installed with RealVNC. You just need to install the RealVNC Viewer for macOS and then you can remotely log-in from your Mac (RealVNC is also available for IOS/Android, so you can also do the same with your smartphone or tablet)

You can find the download link to firmware 73.00e in this thread (take the lead-acid version for your case) and follow the instruction on how to update the firmware from this thread (but do not use the files from that thread)
