Inverter faults cannot be logged on PVOutput?


#1

Is it possible to log the faults of my inverter to PVOutput?

I sometimes get a fault status from my inverter instead of energy data. This happens for instance when the inverter measures a too high VAC value and it will resume operation after a short timeout period (1 minute or so).

I get the fault status in the scripts i use for reading the data from my inverter and sending it to PVOutput, but there seems to be no api call to write the fault status to PVOutput?

I think it would be great if PVOutput could also be used for monitoring inverter faults this way!

Hi,

Couldn’t you PUSH through the error code[s] into an Extended Data variable?

The code that you push would need to be numeric.

Yes that might be a option. I guess i have to make a donation first.
