Re: Problems getting it to work

'php worker.php' is suppose to output nothing except errors. :| When you launch the worker, you should see live values to update in 123solar/scripts/debugmem_read.php It might be a good idea to past your debugmem_read config here. You didn't put any option in 123s admin ? (--kill-after=10s) What &qu...

Re: Arduino EEPROM

Thanks for your thought, it is really appreciated :) What changed my mind, is that a smart meter owner told me he prefer to keep log of his real counter values. I surely understand that, i would too. But, we (poor) pulse-meters owners have now to find a solution :lol: Your senario are correct, if me...

Re: Arduino EEPROM

Hi escix, Yes, the reason is: if meterN or your logger is stop for a reason, you can still meter later on without any count lost. Also, when you have a real smart counter, it is nicer to have a log of the reals values. I haven't thought about a script :oops: it is indeed a temporary solution. I say ...

Re: Problems getting it to work

Hi,

Well, it seem ok to me but i don't own a SMA ;) and I belive Alain is overseas now.
Does SMA-spot work alone (step B) ?
You may test the 123s output: don't launch '123solar start' and in your terminal go in scripts, then type 'php worker.php'

Re: Problems getting it to work

Hi,

1) Yes right
2) Yes it's D2
3) The first inverter is invt1 for 123solar. It may not match the adress number you've set for your SMA-BT.
4) It refer now to the adress in the protocol section of the 123s admin (SMA inverter Num. 0-9)

Hope it's help

Re: Problems getting it to work

Hi Hans, Welcome to this new forum :D Yes, some characters in the configuration might be badly interpreted by 123s. You may check if the loaded values in memory are correct with http://pathtoyourlogger/scripts/debugmem_read.php. If the date (in the first index graph) show 01/01/1970, it mean than no...
