can I please request to add a SMA EDMM-10 Auto Uploader via FTP Push for multiple inverter be added to PVOutput. (Similar to existing SMA Webbox Auto Uploader)
City of Greater Geraldton Council declared a Climate Emergency and we want to share our solar data with the public.
We would like to use PVoutput to show solar data for all (currently 8) systems with 16 inverters owned by the City of Greater Geraldton. Most are SMA systems, then Fronius.
I have configured one System SID 84102 to auto upload data via FTP Push to this system in PVOutput.org.
Data is currently uploaded from SMA EDMM-10 as zipped XML.
The system has 3 inverters: 2 x STP50-40 & 1 x STP20000TL-30 and a SMA Energy Meter
Each XML file has 300sec data for these 4 devices in a single file.
The XML Key for each device is: “::”
Default Device name is: “SN:”The XML Key Prefixes (Name:Number) in the XMLs for the 4 devices are:
SMA Energy Meter: “SMA Energy Meter 1901418812:1901418812”
STP 20000TL-30: “SN: 1901320639:1901320639”
STP50-40 #1: “SN: 3003798390:3003798390”
STP50-40 #2: “SN: 3003798394:3003798394”
I am unsure how Pvoutput handles systems with multiple inverters. I think it’s one inverter = one system and then use child parent relationship to combine data. But the datamanager will only upload all system data for all inverters combined to one FTP account. I propose to simply combine the inverter data for the whole system.
We don’t want to use SBFspot as a converter in between as it would get too complicated also CyberSec reasons.
Thanks and Kind Regards,
