I have an old multiplus compact 12/800/35 with old processor and firmware updated to 1903209 (original is 1903141) connected with mk3-usb to raspberry pi running venus os 2.80~29. no other ve.bus devices connected
The problem is that I cannot control the inverter state or change the input current limit remotely. Even when I connect the mk3-usb to computer and use ve.configure 3 virtual panel, none of the virtual switches work.
If I communicate directly with mk3-usb using commands from this link:https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/1096/mk3-usb-s-state-command-does-not-change-panel-swit.html
I can successfully switch the inverter on/off and change the input current limit.
What I noticed is that the inverter name in venus os is "phoenix multi compact 12/800/35-16" which is not exactly correct as it is not phoenix branded but propably doesn't matter. Also ModeIsAdjustable is zero in dbus which indicates that the remote inverter mode change is not supported?
Should this work or is the multiplus too old? Also I am not sure if I set the dip switches correctly. Now they are set to use the main switch on the inverter as if set otherwise I cannot turn the inverter on.
