Reading 2 different inverters

Topics: 5. Support

I have an older 2000HF, which is only accessible via bluetooth, and a newer SB1500, which can be accessed via TCP/IP and has no BT.

Is it possible to read both inverters with a single installation of SBFSpot ? I can only find info to access them both if they us the same protocol.

Yes, it's possible. You need a config file for each inverter and run SBFspot twice (use -cfg parameter on command line)

Thanks,

Can I put the data from both inverters in the same database, or do I need 2 sepparate db's ?

2nd, can I use the same "trick" with 2 cfg files for the SBFspotUploader ?

For now, I have 2 accounts on pvoutput, and I don't know (yet) how to put 2 inverters in 1 account

Yes, data of 2 inverters goes to the same database.
Only 1 cfg for the uploader. In this config, map the serial nr of each inverter to their corresponding PVoutput System ID (SID)
PVoutput_SID=SerialNo_1:SID_1,SerialNo_2:SID_2
You can find the serial nrs in the output when you run SBFspot with -v -finq
To combine the 2 inverters on PVoutput, read all about data aggregation
