I have a Phoenix 24/500 ve.direct inverter. I am using it with the venus firmware on a raspberry pi. I also have a SmartSolar 100/20 and a BMV 712.
In the VRM Portal, the statistics for the inverter are incorrect... It correctly shows the voltage operating at 230v, but the current hovers between 0 and -0.4 amps... they never seem to reach into the positive...
On the venus device, the stats also show 230v, 0 amps, 0 watts... occasionally the watts will flick to 25 or 50w, but only very briefly.
I know I am drawing about 150w through it (according to the BMV-712)
I read a post that was around 9 months old, saying that the stats for inverters over ve.direct was still in development. Is this still the case? It's curious that I get the correct voltage, but not the correct current...
I also seem unable to adjust all the settings for the Phoenix on the Venus interface... for example, adjusting the low voltage shutdown. Is this expected?
Many thanks! :-D
