Eaton Inverters

Purpose

The purpose of this plugin is to collect data from Eaton PowerXpert Solar Inverters.

Usage

The purpose of this plugin is to collect data from Eaton PowerXpert Solar Inverters via Modbus. The eaton_powerxpert_1500-2200.txt (default) file collects data from Eaton PowerXpert Solar Inverters rated to 1500/1670/2000/2200 kW. The plugin uses the Modbus TCP Specification, and collects from TCP connected inverters only. Inverter data will be collected to the solar table, and will be run every 5 minutes, by default. This plugin relies on the Modbus Ardexa plugin. The following inverter data will be collected to the solar table:

Arguments

Arguments are as follows:
  • endpoint. This is either an IP address like 192.168.1.15
  • bus_addresses. The bus address of the inverter(s)
  • --port. This is an optional parameter used in an Ethernet gateway, and is the TCP port used for the gateway. Default is 502
  • --attempts. This is an optional parameter, and determines how many times to times to attempt to read an inverter value. Default is 1
  • --delay. This is the delay in seconds between inverter send and receive commands, AND if attempts > 1. Fractions like 0.3 can be used. Default is 0.05
