Modbus grid meter data graph not showing on VRM Dashboard

I have noticed that you dont get the more info data on inputs running via a grid meter.
With all the updates the dashboards looking lovely its just a shame the data does not show when using external grid meters as in this screen shot below.

You see the load just not the graphs like you do normally.

if this is something that can be added to the to do list it would be grand.

Hi @DafyddHirst,

I get the load data and graphs showing from the grid meter in my system on VRM, you may need to adjust some settings.

I would suggest looking at how the grid meter is configured in the GX device, this is how mine is set up;

Hi @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager)


Not options i have.

we are not running Built in ess Our systems are all modbus controlled systems.

Grid meters are so we get accurate kwh readings on supplies One on generator input and one on grid input. also to improve granularity of the data.

both are online both working the data appears in the VRM portal perfectly

.... Just the little data graph is missing in VRM dashboard and the more details for the assigned inputs.

all data is appearing as well in dbus. as well as the advanced tab


screen shots from 2 identical systems except system A has no grid meter. You can see the missing graphs and info

its defiantly a display issue as the data is viewable over the dbus.


I can view the data at

genset/Ac/L1/Energy/Forward

grid/Ac/L1/Current


site id is 95249 if that helps

Thanks

Sorry but it's an explicit part of working with customised Modbus TCP configurations and Victron that conversation is restricted to the modifications space.

I'll move this question over there now.
