Solar panel monitor
#1
I have a victron smart solar with VEdirect to USB cable.  I found a script that is supposed to be used on the Raspberry but I am completely new to this system and cannot figure out how to integrate it.  I would like to use it for remote monitoring of battery state. There are several alternatives listed in Victron Open source page.

I am interested in this also -I have smart solar mppt and bmv712 battery monitor (which can use bluetooth) but using a direct cable to a MFD with openplotter would be excellent for many cases.
