    Jbd Bms Rs485 address - Guru needed - Solar Assistant

    Good point, with bluetooth each JBD should be readable individually. What software or utilities do you use to read the JBDs via bluetooth? Is it the mobile app, or is there something you are running from a computer or Raspberry PI?

    Jbd Bms Rs485 address - Guru needed - Solar Assistant

    With a protocol such as modbus each device has an address. The read command always contains the address to read from so even if all the devices receive the message, only one will respond. If you look at the JBD read command it doesn't contain a way to specify from which device you want to...

    Sol-Ark - Inverter Monitoring

    If your inverter is reading your battery via the RS485 then yes a splitter won't work for you. Even if the inverter is just set to read from RS485 and you connect SolarAssistant to the port it can't read from it. That leaves you with only one monitoring port, the WiFi/RS232 port. Some of the...

    Solar Assistant - data logger

    I would start by ensuring you are on the latest release. The changelog for the latest version lists fixes for both LV/LVX inverters and Solar first mode, both seem like what you are describing: https://solar-assistant.io/help/updates/changelog

    Sol-Ark needs a serious Change!

    Yes I still use the inverter CAN port to connect the battery BMS. This is the solar assistant settings pages: If you want to use both the WiFi dongle with Powerview and SolarAssistant at the same time, then you need to connect solar assistant via the RS485 port instead of the WiFi/RS232...

    Sol-Ark needs a serious Change!

    A really easy way to monitor your Sol-Ark inverter is with solar assistant. I noticed other users on this forum using it, then I installed on a Sol-Ark installation a few weeks ago. It's excellent, gives you Grafana charts, allows inverter setting changes, home assistant integration, etc...

    New PV Keeper 2.0 for Growatt Inverters

    Do you keep a laptop permanently plugged into the inverter to collect statistics over time with PVKeeper? Or do you go and plug it in when you want to view the inverter, then it has history data?

    MPP Solar LV6548 APP

    Not completely... I had a pretty legendary Home Assistant inverter monitoring setup with Grafana. For remote access I couldn't do port forwarding due to ISP limitations. I tried the official remote access for Home Assistant called nabu casa which worked great but after trial it's $5 per month. I...

    Sol-Ark - Inverter Monitoring

    Hi Guys, Sol-Ark is basically exactly the same inverter as Deye and SunSynk, its just different branding/marketing. You can get real time monitoring with this product: https://solar-assistant.io/ I doubt that Sol-Ark has modbus over TCP because I haven't seen that option in solar assistant...
