2 inverters in one house

Hello everyone,

When you have 2 inverters (since the panels are split across 2 roofs) in our house... do I now have to configure just 1 SBFSpot.cfg file and simply put both inverters in there or does it have to be 2 separate config files (for each inverter)?

Thx

Bluetooth or ethernet connected?

Ethernet (LAN) for each inverter:

Sunny Boy 3000TL-21Sunny Boy 3000TL-21
Sunny Tripower 6000TL-20Sunny Tripower 6000TL-20
2 x SMA Webconnect

Right now I did in the SBFSpot.cfg:
IP_Address=192.168.1.21,192.168.1.22

and MIS_Enabled=1

But for some reason I have a feeling it only measures one.

In the SBFspotupload.cfg i have this for pvoutput:
PVoutput_SID=304956895:xxxxx1,2130276459:xxxxx1

Check serial numbers in upload cfg. Seems the first is too short.
Also, SID cannot be the same. One system will overwrite the other one.
See issue 134

The serial numbers seem fine to me? Checked in the events log but those show the same, or do i need to check somewhere else?
So I need to create two separate Systems in PVOutput, each inverter a separate system? I thought you could combine multiple inverters there. Thx

But If i do have to split it up in the daemon config, do i then also need to split it up in the sbfspot.cfg ?

Please see: http://www.pvoutput.org/help.html#general-aggregation. You need to set up as many child systems as you do inverters and have those aggregate to a parent system.

I separated the inverters now in Pvoutput, however in the sbfspot.cfg i still did IP_Address=192.168.1.21,192.168.1.22 and MIS_Enabled=1.
It looks like Domoticz doesnt understand 2 inverters in one file or something since it shows me half of what I got in domoticz.

sbfspot.cfg is OK: comma separated IP addresses - MIS_enabled is only used by bluetooth connection
In sbfspotupload.cfg: comma separated list of serial:SID (eg PVoutput_SID=304956895:SID1,2130276459:SID2 where SID1 and SID2 are your 2 child systems)
For Domoticz, it's best to ask Domoticz team - here we can't help you
