123Solar with SMA inverter and latest version of SMAspot

Hello,

I tried to setup 123Solar on my Raspberry Pi, but I do not get the communication to the SMA STP5000-TL working.

Actual versions used:

123Solar: 1.6.5.5
SMAspot: V2.4.5

Communication over ethernet.
SMAspot is working:


SMAspot -q -123s=DATA -cfg/var/www/123solar/config/SMAspot_0.cfg

Code: Select all

Inverter IP address: 192.168.1.63 from SMAspot.cfg

if I do a "Test communication" at the inverters configuration screen, I get the following error:

/config

the events box on the info screen shows following messages:

Any help highly appreciated...

Hi,
Actually, i don't think SBFspot V2.4.5 support 123solar output, does it ?
You might have to try SMAspot 2.06a.

Then I can't use 123Solar, as SMAspot 2.0.6a does not support access via ethernet

The 123Support is identical in all SBFspot (SMAspot) versions. And it is not bound to a particular communications protocol (= is available for bluetooth and Webconnect inverters).

Problem is here :
-----
Inverter IP address: 192.168.1.63 from SMAspot.cfg
SetInverterTime() not executed! We're still testing...
-----

This information should not present in the message frame sent to 123Solar.

( >krubik. Just contact SBF. He will arrange that :) )

I got a very similar setup (ethernet, SBFspot) and the same error.
Looks like that these two lines of text mess that up.
Is there a solution yet? What will we have to do to fix this?
I really appreciate your work - and I am looking forward to use 123solar!
Thanks.

Problem was reported to SBF.

A real solution would probably to modify the 123Solar message frames a bit (encapsulate them).

Later...
