I have a JBD 60A BMS so i have been able to monitor the packs on my android tablet. Now that i can access...

    JDB / XiaoXiang BMS tool

    Thats great, I've just dug out the UART connection that came with the BMS and im ready to load up your JBD tools,, I 'm just learning (not very fast) how to install and run programs on the PI so it may take me a few trys but at least i know it can be done. A more attainable goal than my other...

    JDB / XiaoXiang BMS tool

    I have a XiaoXiang BMS , I have been accessing it from my android tablet bit hard to connect sometimes, but great to see whats going on, but would be so much better to read it through my raspberry pi. I have Ubuntu/linux machines so have never used the existing windows program. What do i need...

    victron 75/15

    I get your point, but i think we are at crossed threads, I'm trying to connect a 24V DC/DC 12v converter to the load output of the MPPT. I have a 24v charge/battery setup and want to run existing 12v pumps etc through the load of the MPPT so i can read my consumption with its software.
