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

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 – 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.
