Hi, I am new to the forum and I need some advice on a problem that keeps popping up with my SmartSolar 100/20-48 charge controller connected to a Raspberry Pi.
Let me start off by saying that I am running the latest stable firmware on the Raspberry Pi (v2.66). I have also connected my Victron 500A smart shunt and SmartSolar 100/20-48 controller (both are running latest firmware) to the raspberry pi thru a USB adapter on each. The smart shunt works perfectly, and is always connected and transmitting data.
My problem is occurring with the solar charge controller. It will stop sending data to the VRM portal randomly throughout the day and consistently over night. The only way to get data flowing again is to restart the raspberry pi. Then the cycle starts over again.
Could there be some setting I missed in the solar controller that is causing it to stop transmitting data?
Thanks for the help!
