Question

HELP!

I grabbed Inverter-Data-Logger from github and configured it, but not having much luck, maybe someone else has used this and had issues they have been able to resolve, that may apply to me as well.

Basically running

python LiveStats.py

gets me

2021-03-05 16:26:14,130 DEBUG Importing output plugin ConsoleOutput

mostly, once I got

but no actual data, I have not changed any settings between the runs and here, proof that the unit can be reached and still does not actually respond...

if anybody has any bright ideas/can help, I would very much appreciate it.

Oh yes, in case I didn't mention it, the inverter is a Sunsynk 5kW, but I'd think that's probably less important.

Same problem here with Inverter-Data-Logger

[email protected]:~/solarman/Inverter-Data-Logger $ python3 LiveStats.py

I also tried https://github.com/jlopez77/DeyeInverter.git

Anybody able to query the Solarman WiFi Dongle?

I changed the script a bit to display the information i needed.

You will need to change the config.cfg to put your inverter's ip address and serial number.

I used mqqt for sometime but it wasn't working properly so i just display results in terminal.

On my raspberry pi, i just run the below:

python ./InverterData.py
 

Sunsynk.zip

Thanks for sharing!

I'm getting "could not open socket" error

I'm able to ping and login to the web browser of the dongel

I was looking into this a few months back.  The version of the dongle is important.  The newer dongles have changed the protocol and caused a lot of headaches.  If you browse the 'issues' section on github you can see lots of threads about it.  

The end of this thread seems to indicate someone might have cracked v5 of the protocol: https://github.com/XtheOne/Inverter-Data-Logger/issues/37
