Good!
Be careful, because json$ might return a "not found", resulting in a numeric value 0, if I'm not mistaken

Viel Erfolg und Spaß!

hi my code is nearly finishd - using a ILI9341 Display with an A-Z Touch Mod
added some Progressbars ,Monitoring the Inverter Power an the Grid Power- the control of the microinverter is still missing

@Helmut - take a look into the code it is easy to read ot the DTU -i think AHOY is similar to "openDTU"

@Helmut
this is the string you will get with:

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

DTUresult$=wget$("http://192.168.2.34/api/inverter/id/0")
Result:

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

these all strings so you can parse them

PS:but watch out for a wlog output didn't work for me at the same time as writing to the TFT

Hallo Ron,
wie kann man(n) die Leistung steuern? außer durch MQTT habe ich keinen Weg gefunden.
Das bedeutet aber, dass man ein Broker nutzen muss.
Ich nutze zwar IP-Symcon und kann das alles damit machen, hätte aber gern ein Wand-touch-Display.
Hatte schon mit Virtuinio IOT und Modbus TCP gearbeitet, jetzt mal mit ESP32 ;-)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwgmrcxG7hQ
Hast Du da schon einen Ansatz?
Alles Gute

Hello Ron,
how can you control the performance? I haven't found a way other than through MQTT.
But that means you have to use a broker.
I use IP-Symcon and can do everything with it, but I would like a wall touch display.
Do you already have an approach?
Best regards, Helmut

Hello,

the "openDTuU or AHOY DTU communicate directly with the inverter - so you can not only receive data but also control certain values, for example the "Power Limit", so it is done and you don't need anything else
see this example :

https://selbstbau-pv.de/wissensbasis/nu ... steuerung/

If you have tested this successfully, let me know :)

have a nice Day

*annoyed...; :oops:

the ESP32 module - ESP32 dev Kit V4 - for the TFT display died again overnight - I noticed that it was very warm from the beginning an - this can be prevented by reducing the WIFI Power ?? ??? - Or has anyone already cooled the chip with a fan ??
it started with the fact that the get requests were no longer reliably processed - same as in the previous module

have a better Day

Is your ESP32 board damaged at the voltage regulator? Have you connected (too many) external devices (display etc.) to the internal 5V>3V3 regulator? This could be too much current or power dissipation for the regulator.

I have noticed more and more 5V power supplies lately that actually have a 5V2 output, so a 1N4001 to reduce the voltage can also reduce the power to the 3V3 regulator.
Or you can use a separate power supply/ regulator.


A problem could also arise if 5V peripherals are connected to the only 3V3 tolerant (!) inputs of the ESP32

hi Peter,
i use this :https://www.az-delivery.de/products/az- ... VAQAvD_BwE

the Voltage at the 5V Pin ist exactly 4.994 V !

It is also remarkable: now that it no longer works, the ESP chip is only half as warm - but tomorrow I will receive new modules. then I will reduce the Wifi power first and see what comes - it worked well for a few days

Oh !!!
Would not have expected problems with the use of this board.
That is indeed annoying!
