Just updated a MultiGrid 3000/48/35-50 installation. The system now has all the latest software :-
VE.Bus :- 2690469
Venux GX :- 2.42
MPPT BlueSolar 150/70 :- 1.47
ESS Assistant :- 0175
VE Configure 3 :- 90.04.218
There seems to be a problem in that the Venux GX no longer recognises that the assistant is loaded into the MultiGrid. The system is in "Passthru" mode. This means that no ESS controlling is happening.
In the Venus GX "Settings" -> "ESS", it just says "No ESS Assistant found". VEConfigure 3, says that the assistant is loaded. DVCC is ENABLED. I have made no changes to the settings of the ESS assistant.
I have used VE Configure 3 to send all the settings plus assistants twice to the MultiGrid (rebooting it each time), and also rebooted the Venus GX, but no luck.
It seems that some combination of these three things is not happy. Any one any ideas ? This is the first time I've encountered any problems upgrading this system (I've done it many times over its current three year lifetime). I am loathe to upgrade my other system with Venus GX, Multiplus II 5000/48 and SmartSolar MPPT 150/85 in case it does the same.
