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 https://www.zevercloud.com/station/create 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

Note that the 2.0.2 version of [WayBack] ZeverCloud – Apps on Google Play does not work on Android Oreo.

Via internal Zeversolar channels, I got 2.0.2 development version Android works on Oreo – ZeverCloud.apk.zip which despite the same version number, does work.

Start-up or Pokémon? Big-data or Pokémon?

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/17

Remember the introduction of Pokémon during summer 2016? Despite usage being far less by now ([WayBack80 Amazing Pokemon Go Statistics and Facts) you might still recollect the odd names the Pokémon Go characters in the Pokédex had: [WayBackList of Pokémon – Wikipedia.

Back then I had the vague sense that some names reminded me of species, and others of companies. Both appeared to be true, for instance [WayBack] Seel looks awfully familiar to Seal. Domo has many meanings (including a Dutch dairy desert). Oh, and [WayBack] Gloom has quite a few meanings so I’m OK with being confused.

So I was amused bumping into these a while back: Pokémon names versus those of names of start-up and big-data companies:

The quizes also have very funny descriptions of what the companies behind the names stand (stood?) for, like “Hadoop is distributed system for counting words”.

Via many, including:

Maybe I should turn the GitHub repository in to a Google Assistant Trivia questionaire using a Google Sheet.

Reminder to self: not all 4K displays are equal at HDMI: watch the HDMI version they support.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/17

Experience from a friend:

The cause is that the Samsung only does 60Hz on DisplayPort because they do not support HDMI 2.0.
