Battery Inverter operates 24 hours

Jul 3, 2015 at 10:14 AM
I installed SBFspot to also monitor my battery inverter...
Actually it works amazingly well, except for one thing:

SBFspot seems to stop monitoring during the night, when the Battery Inverter does most of its work.
Adjusting the SunRSOffset does not do the deal, as nights, especially in winter tend to be much longer than two hours.. :))

Is there a possibilty to configure the Battery Instance to work on a 24hour shift ?!?

Hi Frank,
use the -finq (Force INQuiry) switch on the SBFspot command line.
There is no sql support yet, so nothing will get into the db
