Rover monitoring using Raspberry Pi Sept 15, 2018 14:33:39 GMT
Post by Admin on Sept 15, 2018 14:33:39 GMT
I wrote some Python code to run on a Raspberry PI and log almost all of the SRNE ML2420
/ML2440 and therefore Renogy Rover data (that you can access with their software on a PC) into a database as well as write it to a hosted webpage, that you can access anywhere from your cellphone etc (with the right router setup of course). See the screenshot attached (this also includes some monitoring of directly attached devices through a shunt).
I'm considering doing a write-up and giving the code to anyone who wants it, just let me know.
The setup is quite involved and technical
Please note I have attached my write-up on how to do the above as an attached pdf. I was unable to copy and paste it directly here as I kept getting blocked by the forum!
I doubt I will be able to upload the attachments I reference in the pdf, such as the code and diagrams. If you would like these then please message me. Thanks!

Thanks Lindsay I am reading your material and the stuff posted at www.rototron.info/raspberry-pi-solar-serial-rest-api-tutorial/ to see how to best connect it up to an Asus tinkerboard.

It works perfectly, I modifed the code a bit and took out the GPIO pieces and I was pleasantly surprised that the USB drivers worked. Plugging the cord that came with the bt-50 into the tinkerboard I luckily saw in syslog
usb 1-1.2: Product: FT232R USB UART
ftdi_sio 1-1.2:1.0: FTDI USB Serial Device converter detected
usb 1-1.2: FTDI USB Serial Device converter now attached to ttyUSB0
Thank you for nailing down all the registry mappings.
