Synchronize VE.Bus SOC with battery
Has this item been rolled into dvcc? After some digging here it seems its been removed yet its still in the manual. The last mention of it in the changelog is in the v2.02 – 30 January 2017 Venus Os
Are you guys working on an update to the manual to remove redundant settings to avoid confusion?
loss of communication source for genset
I have a few systems I setup and support with auto start gensets, after a couple of weeks of bad weather one went into LVD during a sustained load at a low SOC. Voltage start timing settings were a bit too long to catch the voltage crash. LA batteries.
I had set start on loss of communication as a third fail safe to start the genset, and had the BMV as the source for genset SOC. However the genset didn't start as the BMV was still active yet the multi had shutdown. I had assumed that it would start on loss of comms to anything on the VE.bus. After rereading the manual, it's loss of communication to the SOC source.
Normally I disable the battery monitor in the multi to avoid the user accidentally changing the source.
I have now reenabled the monitor in the multi, which seems to be tracking the BMV and set the genset SOC source to the multi.
However Synchronize VE.Bus SOC with battery is completely missing so the only indication the SOC is being read by the BMV to the system is that its the same as the BMV.
Seems a rather complicated method, could we simply have this changed so we could select the loss of communication source?
This now raised another question, when performing remote configs through the portal the multi/quattro drops communications to the venus device for a moment. Will this cause a genset start?
