Raspberry Pi and Growatt inverter


#1

Anyone got a working program to monitor a growatt inverter via usb or wifi on the raspberry pi please? Python to complicated for me :slight_smile:
Cheers

You need usb to RS485 (or RS232) and python but its not that hard.
For monitoring with pvoutput: https://github.com/jrbenito/canadianSolar-pvoutput
Though if using python3, you will need to modify the code (where print command does not include brackets)
For local monitoring: https://github.com/ZeroErrors/solarmon

I’ve been using the above for nearly two years now and it works well. There is a thread about it here Help Required Uploading Growatt Inverter To PVOutput
