How to remove power meter from the GX list

Hi,

Recently I changed my PV inverter to Fronius.

It does not need a power meter to report production.

At the same time I installed EM24 as a grid power meter and removed EF340 used for old PV inverter.

Now I have 2 power meters in my GX settings menu but one is no longer in the system but still in the setup is as used to measure PV inverter production on AC out.

Can this be cleaned up somehow?

Hi Marek,

There is presently no way to delete such meters, at least none that are user accessible. The only way to remove it is on a very low level: to root the device, stop the localsettings service, and then to edit the settings file on the device (it's an XML file).

/data/conf/settings.xml

If a unused meter is in that list, it is just there, it doesnt influence the system in any way.

Best Regards,

Markus
