Batrium & Conext Integration
#1
I am in the process of building a wall using cells from a Nissan Leaf. I am at the point of the project where I need to select an inverter. Any info on the Batrium / Conext integration? I am looking to do Load Shifting to avoid high Time of Use charges. I would also like to top off the batteries at reduced nightly rates if solar wasn't enough the prev day.

1) We need more information about this project. IE: voltage, amperage, setup, intended usage, grid tie, stand-alone, etc
2) Would be best to create a new thread with this information for your specific build under the Powerwalls main grouping.

Right now I am interested Batrium/Schneider integration. I have been unable to find any documentation regarding this.

I'm interested in which inverters that have or are being tested with batrium system?
                                                Choose LiFe  Wink

                      May all your batteries be fully charged and perfectly balanced  Cool

The BMS can provide basic enable signal for charge/discharge control. Additional remote communication control is as follows.

WatchMon can link direct to the following inverter/charger via canbus
  • SMA - Sunny Island 3.0M / 4.4M / 6.0H / 8.0H (canbus)
  • Solax - LG battery emulator (canbus)
  • Solax - Inverter Hybrid_X1&X3 BAT Communication (canbus)
Using external BridgeConnect module additional equipment can be connected via modbus/serial communication ports
  • Schneider / Xantrex Conext XW7048  - pilot
  • MPPSolar PIP4048 - pilot test site
Scheduled equipment for testing
  • Imeon energy hybrid inverter IMEON 3.6  and IMEON 9.12
Equipment for consideration (documentation obtained however no test equipment available)
  • Studer Xtender inverter charger
  • Victron Venus GX
  • Magnum Energy inverter / charger 
If you have protocol documentation for other inverters please send via email so that we can assess if we can implement.

Has there been any further development on the Schneider / Xantrex Conext integration?  I see that Watchmon4 now supports modbus directly

Thanks
