PC connected to PIP. How to extract data for remote sending?
#1
Hello,
I’ve connected a small pc to my PIP5058MG, running watchpower to control inverter functions.
Now the question.
Would like to remote monitoring and even change PIP parameters through iPad/iphone and/or other lan/internet pc.
Can you suggest the right settings and software?
Would be nice to take a look on data when I am outside.

Can't help you with Windows or Mac ways of doing inverter telemetry.  Linux OTOH...

Daromer has created a raspberry pi ISO that puts in all the components needed to turn a RPi3 into a small telemetry device by sending the data to an influxdb/grafana stack:  http://diytechandrepairs.nu/raspberry-solar/

Also there's EmonCMS: https://emoncms.org/  (And I believe these guys also sell you a custom made RPi with the software already installed for a little bit of money).

I also wrote my own little C program (because my crappy RPi B+ model is too slow and low ram to use Daromers) that simply collects values from modbus and spits to screen right then, so another program (telegraf) can run it every 15 seconds and be used to export the data to a remote influxdb/grafana stack:  https://github.com/nrm21/skymax-demo/

Thanks a lot for your help.

Yes I will download and install this ISO into my RP3 to use 24/7 inverter usb connected.

I assume no need to buy any smnt board from mppsolar for watching telemetry data from any pc connected to the internet, isn’t?
