Links to help me monitor my Zeverlution PV converter locally

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

Since it’s my data, I’d rather be in control myself, so here are some links that will help me going around the Zevercloud solution I posted about yesterday.

Some other interesting links of software supporting Zeversolar devices:

Note that does have native ZeverCloud updating using the ZeverSolar API key:

But these might help me:

Reminder to self: make a list of URL suffixes to show branch diagrams of repositories

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

One of the BitBucket features I like a lot is that in the commit history, you see the branches involved in a nice diagram on the left side of the commits:

BitBucket used to be popular to host public repositories, but from a public perspective, they are on the decline for that (they even removed the [once page and [WayBack] will not re-introduce it).

Right now, only major git based hosters still have explore pages:

So it makes sense to see where they provide diagrams of branches, so here are some examples to go from a project to the graph:

Never ever put OutpugDebugString in code that is meant to run on production systems

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/18

I just saw this code in the Delphi RTL enabled for RELEASE builds of the procedure TThreadPool.TQueueWorkerThread.Execute; code:

    OutputDebugString(PChar(Format('Thread Exiting: %d', [ThreadId])));

Never, ever do this.

If you code review code that contains it: ensure it has some kind of compile time DEBUG conditional around it.

Registering your Zeverlution device in the Zeversolar cloud

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/17

If you have a Zeverlution PV converter, the easiest to get at the data is through the Zeversolar cloud.

The included documentation does not contain web browser registration instructions, only Android/iOS app.

So here we go:

  1. Create an account at [WayBackZeverCloud – Login: click CREATE AN ACCOUNT, then
    1. Fill in these fields:
      • Email
      • Password
      • Re-type Your Password
    2. Check the I agree to the Terms of Service & Privacy Policy box
    3. Press SUBMIT button
    4. Wait for your confirmation email to arrive
    5. Confirm your account
    6. Logon
  2. Follow the link, then
    1. Fill in these fields:
      1. Monitor SN (this is actually the MAC address without seperator; it starts with EAB961 which is an unknown OUI)
      2. Registry Key
    2. Press the Continue button
    3. Fill in these fields:
      1. Plant Name
      2. Installed Capacity (note the unit is not Wp, but KWp, so multiply the # of panels by the Wp of the panels, then devide by 1000)
      3. Commissioning (date in YYYY-MM-DD format)
      4. Company/Organization
    4. Press the Continue button
    5. Fill in these fields:
      1. CO2 Avoided Factor (the unit is Kg/KWh; For The Netherlands get it from [Archive.isLijst emissiefactoren | CO2 emissiefactoren under ELEKTRICITEIT)
      2. Yield Factor (the unit is Currency/KWh where Currency is from field 3; get this from your local energy supplier)
      3. Currency
      4. Timezone *
    6. Check the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time box
    7. Press the Continue button
    8. Fill in these fields:
      1. Country
      2. State
        1. Since this field could not be filled in for The Netherlands, I changed it using the Chrome Developer Tools having one option value: <option value=”0″>N/A</option>
      3. City
      4. Street/No.
      5. Zip Code
      6. Longitude
      7. Latitude
    9. Press the Save button
