The biggest lie I tell myself is not about new years resolutions.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/01

The biggest lie I tell myself is “I don’t need to write that down, I’ll remember it”

It’s likely older, but the oldest reference I could find was 2012 [WayBack].

So before I forget:

Happy New Year everyone!

With the above quote, it is no coincidence I started my blog even earlier (in 2009): it’s my off-line memory, way better readable than my hand-writing and indexed by various search engines.

Time to let go of prejudices: We are all much more the same than we are different.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/25

All of humanity is more alike than different. This holds for generations as well:

the findings suggest meaningful differences among generations do not exist!

Let this be a thought in these days at the end of december: enjoy that we all are so much alike, and help each other succeed.

In an article for Forbes Magazine, we busted the persistent myth that different generations have different needs and desires at work. Back then we were talking about popular-press articles claiming that, for…

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.
