After remotely from VRM upgrading SmartSolar to 1.42 my battery doesn’t get charged fully. It charges to example at 92% and today 89% and then just stops and only matches the solar yield to the DC consumption even when there is lots of sun.
I got an error “#68 Network misconfigured” from the SmartSolar after upgrade so I had to exclude it from the SmartNetwork. That is clearly show on the graphs as the big dip starting 2019-04-24.
Both times it has got back to SOC 99 or 100% was after a shutdown and power off whole system and starting it up again.
I have notice the BMV-712 in not correct in SQC and stated 100% when the battery is not. But the VenusGX is set to use Battery Monitor “Pylontech battery on CAN-bus”. Can it be the BMV that is still being in control of SOC in some way? SmartSolar is disconnected from the SmartNetwork but it still feels like it stops charging when BMV get near 100%
The system has been working very good until now.
I have checked the settings against https://www.victronenergy.com/live/battery_compatibility:pylontech_phantom
Pure DC system with 3500w PV and
SmartSolar Charger MPPT 250/100 rev2 (1.42)
BMV-712 Smart (4.01)
512 = Pylontech
260 = BMV-712 Smart
This is a remote location and I can only use VRM unless I take the trip there.
