How to find Unit ID for Device Instance that ins't in the ModbusTCP excel sheet?

I have an OctoGX gateway connected to 9 SmartSolar Charger MPPTs. For all but 2 of the Chargers I can find the Unit ID according to the Device Instance using the 'CCGX-Modbus-TCP-register-list-2.31', but two of the chargers have Device Instance 295 and 296 which aren't lister in the spreadsheet.


Is there a way to find the Unit ID of these two so that I can connect to them over ModbusTCP like the others?

The Unit ID mapping for Device Instances 294 - 296 were added to the file '/opt/victronenergy/dbus-modbustcp/unitid2di.csv' by opening an ssh console to the gateway (logged in as root) and manually adding the additional lines to the csv, and then rebooting.

There is also a new feature in the upcoming Venus v2.40 to show UnitID's.
