Re: Battery SOC vs Voltage

Mike : I know, putting graphs on this forum is a bit difficult and I do not want to mobilize a third party. What I am describing is that between 24.2 and 25.2Volts I have a huge square cloud from 52 to 99% soc I cannot use Optics as I only communicate once a day by 3G, and my Mate3 Ethernet does wo...

Battery SOC vs Voltage

Hi folks, in the southern french Alps, my 2kWp and 30kWh batteries are managed by OB's FP1-34 (fm80, gvfx3024, fndc and Mate3). For some comminication problem I do not get the SOC, only the voltage of the batteiries. From the sd card .csv files I tried to estimate the SOC from Volts every day at mid...

Re: irregular generator charging

Hi Lundquist, I finally found the answer by thorough testing (lucky I am retired!): Though my gen is supposed to give 3kW practically it is only 1kW All is OK with a maximum input amperage of 4 AAC which is enough to put up my bats at a correct level! The lesson is that I should never again opt for ...

irregular generator charging

Hi folks, My 1kWp is managed by FP1-34 (charge controler, inverter charger, battery monitor, hub and Mate3) When loading with a generator (SDMO Inverter 3000) that generator and the general load voltage go up and down every 10s. or so, voltage between 180 and 230 by 1s. steps. That is not accepted b...

Re: MATE serial out. Negative numbers for FN-DC shunts

Hey! I use a Raspberry Pi reading through a wiFi-modem-router, every hour "http://192.168.0.64/Dev_status.cgi?&Port=0" and a small Python script to send the result through that Wifi-modem-router to lsdx.eu/GPV_ZSDX. Worked fine for one month and then nothing. I checked: - the cat5 cable: OK - 192.16...

2012 firmware for Mate3

Hi every body In another thread, it is acknowledged that Mate3 does not always reconnect after an Internet Outage. This is my case: lsdx.eu/GPV_ZSDX should have a line each hour but only half of them come out, due to this recognition of the outgoing Ethernet port (I checked with the SD card). When I...

Gen Data in Dev_Status.cgi

Hi everybody, When Mate3 allows me, I monitor my fp1 by reading dev_status.cgi each hour. I then select a few variables (Bat_T, Bat_V, Soc, Soc_min, kWh_out, kWh_in ) to show on lsdx.eu/GPV_ZSDX which is a mess by now, but thats another story. I'd like to add Gen_kWh cumulated, but could not find it...

Re: Irregular gen power

Thanks everybody,
I think I am safely within all limits. Will have a look when back to my mountain (by the way abt 5220 ft uabove sea level).
It may be the gen itself which will be sent for maintenance next spring: apparently not designed for occasional running, needs muche more cleaning!

Thanks Mike,
My two strings have very different panels (on silicium, made in 2012, the new one CIS made in 2017
They are on the same plane, but I dont think they have the same mppt voltage.

Hi!
In its manuals, OB suggests using a RJ45 to WiFi adapter.
Could not find any without external power source which would be awsome to set in my standalone system.

Any tip for an adapter directly fed by RJ45?
