Measuring AC-out 2

Is it possible to measure AC-out 2, so it is displayed seperately from AC-out 1?

I want to see both AC-out 2 and AC-out 1 on the remote console?

ac out 2

Hi @TiaanGreensun,

Have a look at the below. In this case the critical loads are connected below the quattro, we have a ET112 energy meter at the grid-feed-in point. The quattro is sitting at an abritary point in the network. The cgx displays the following.

Critical loads is measured by the quattro and AC/loads is measured by the ET112 and the display value is calculated by the CGX based on the possible sources. (battery/pv inverter or grid)

Let me know if this is what you are aiming for.

Best Regards

Riaan

PS: In this case there is nothing connected to AC2-out.

Hi Riaan,

Thanks for the reply, I thought as much, we always use the et112 or et340 to measure our on-essentials.

Thought someone might have a trick up their sleeve.

Hopefully in the future we can see it, because that would work great coupled with relay we can program with the acout 2.

Regards

Hi @TiaanGreensun

AC-out2 is not measured seperately from AC-out1, so it cannot be shown separately

the way @Riaan Barkhuizen describes measuring non-essential loads that are connected between a grid-meter and the inverter, is the only way to get them to show seperate (as non-essential loads)

You -can- measure PV input on either AC-out1 or 2 with a current sensor connected to the Multi / Quattro. or use a grid meter like the ET112 to measure PV input on the output.

But as most PV inverters nowadays have an network connection and are 'sunspec' compatible, most PV inverters can be made to show up in a GX device very easily.
