Generator Node




This is in Autostart mode.

When I set up a node to find out why gen starts (Condition that startet the gen), I only get to report the number 1, manual.

Does anyone else use this for something, get a different status?

In the picture it started on SOC but it does not come up.

update:I see it at first, but then it disappears very quickly.

update2: Since it is in manual, it looks like it does not stop as it should

(the tank gauge is not connected yet)

With best regards

Node Red Time Zone And Such...

I realize this is a couple of related questions, but here goes:

Is that any way to read the timezone offset that the user sets in the Venus GUI into NodeRed? I am trying to make decisions based on local time, which since I am a sailboat, that changes and changing it when it is hard coded into NodeRed is a bit awkward... I do have access to the GPS position that is on the CANbus, and could calculate a "solar time" based on latitude, but that seems clunky...

The vaguely related question: Is there any way to access the user set value for the "Quiet Hours" used by the generator autorun function?

Even further afield from the original question: Are the other parameters set by the user and used by the generator autorun function accessible to NodeRed?

I haven't found any of these on the published Modbus register listings.
