Hello DroneBot Workshop members.   Read my profile for a quick update on me.

Hope I can contribute to the forum and also stand on your awesome technical shoulders here.

Basic in Ardunio/Pi programming, medium to advanced in some electronics (forgotten more than I've learned).

1st project  - I'd like to build a at-a-glance power monitor for a self built solar system and that will allow me to capture to Excel the data gathered.  

Appreciate any direction in the forum you can give. 

 

Thanks.

Tribob (another hobby to stay active - triathlons)

@tribob Welcome to the forum Tribob. I might be able to help as I have 1,140 watts of solar panels, 600AH of LiFePO4 batteries, a 3,000 watt inverter with 120A charger and all the bits and pieces to make it work. I bought the parts but did the install myself. If you are interested I think I can set you up to view my online monitor.

@zander Hi Ron, thanks for the offer to see your monitor.    A link would most likely give me new ideas for my Pwr Monitor.

@tribob No problem. I will need you to Private Message me your email address you want to use to connect the pwr monitor however you are not yet eligible to send a PM, Can @codecage or @dronebot-workshop authorize @tribob to send me a PM?

Due to local wifi issues I can't replicate this but start at www.victronenergy.com then lower left click VRM Portal, then top left hamburger menu some combination of all installations and search for Ron&June will give you my install. Once I have your email (do NOT post email in open forum) I can connect you for permanent read-only access.

@tribob I have sent a link to my pwr monitor page in a private message. Until you have 10 posts or one of the admins authorizes it you will not see it. Let me know when you get it or if you don't get it when you think you should. Make sure you are subscribed to this topic at least, and to your private messages (don't recall if that is automatic)

Can @codecage or @dronebot-workshop authorize @tribob to send me a PM?

Unfortunately we can't, the setting for PM privileges is universal and can't be modified for an individual member.

@dronebot-workshop Ok, then I will tell him to just make 10 useless posts so we can exchange email addresses privately.

@tribob Sorry, the only way you can send and receive private messages is if you get your post count up to 10 or maybe 11. Just reply to this post several times until you see 11 in Posts under your avatar.

@tribob Here is the advanced view showing past 6 months of data and a few of the many metrics that can be shown.

@tribob This is a web based remote view (available on the net). It looks pretty much identical to what is on the wall. I can change the view but this is my favourite and from the panel both real and virtual can make dozens of settings changes. For detailed graphs I need to log into the portal and from there can also download excel data but I never do that since the charts are available in my web browser.

How about making USEFUL posts instead?

@dronebot-workshop Sure if he had some, but we are just trying to get past the limit so private messages work, unless you are suggesting I expose my email to the world?
