  1. buy, sell, bank (store) based on displayed power price

    Eventually all power companies should use hour to hour pricing, and also measure power losses due to transmission, heat, and inefficiencies. I would like my display to show who is using my power, and how much they are wasting, how much my power is sold for, at a given hour of day. This information, will eventually allow power generating customers like myself, choose when to save to battery and when to sell for the most efficiency and price.

  2. Build a local app to monitor system when offline

    Build a downloadable local client app so local outback systems can be monitored When the Internet is down or my Internet connection is poor. My off-grid rural system is very vital, and to have to be on the Internet to monitor it is a very weak link. I can monitor the Mate3s, but its Interface is not near as good as the OpticsRE GUI, and when my system is off the Internet, I lose data during that time, which means I cant power down the router at night or when I am not using the Internet to save precious power.

  3. Mate3 mode priority for HBX, LGT & Grid Use modes.

    Mate3 needs an option to set priorities to the "Grid Use", "Load-Grid Transfer" and "HBX" modes.

    This will allow the modes to be used together since each mode seems to be unable to meet every situation on their own.

  4. Log outback equipment powr use (currently unreported)

    Log power used by inverter (in/efficiency)
    charting needs an option to graph the power used to run the system / inverters (as much as 7.2kWh/day per inverter) Currently this info goes unreported and can be useful when evaluating a system for potential upgrades or changes.

  5. Excess Power Utilised

    G'day Outbackers.
    How about a simple means of diverting EXCESS P.V. power into something useful for those of us on Stand Alone Systems. For example, Water pumping.

    Cheers. Trev.

  6. Ability to enter custom battery characteristics

    Ability to specify battery characteristics when 'other' battery type is selected in a system without a DC monitor. eg:
    Voltage when chart 'orange' area begins
    Voltage when chart 'red' area begins
    Chart voltage range (max & min values on RH scale)

  9. Ease of use & understanding

    Bring the old interface look and feel to optics as it was much quicker for a home owner like myself, and maybe a print option so a novice can print the system info out to have on hand to use if or when the system goes down.

  12. Configurable manual start run period

    Hi,

    What would be good that I didn't mention in the recent survey would be the ability to specify a run period when starting the generator manually under AGS - allowing you to start but then specify, say 3hrs, and forget it rather than having to remember (or be in internet coverage) to turn off. It would be good to be able to set the default run period for this facility. It is cumbersome having to do via Exercise or Must Run plus I use these for standard run cycles.

    cheers

  13. Designer engineer

    Hello running this system at 30 volts on a 24 volts system with 5 battery instead of 4 is way bettery for batterys each battery in a 6 volt system will drop at least 1 to 2 volts in banks per battery so keeping volts pretty much up in volts mean longer lasting batterys but the refloat need to be change on flooded battery from 26.5 to 30 volts

  20. GVFX3648 top-off charging in HBX mode.

    How about amending the HBX code to allow we HBX users to be able to charge our batteries from the grid during night time hours? This is much preferable to bring to fool the system by using the “sell” mode and pretending that the input is coming from a non-existent generator, as I read some people in the forums do.

    A number of us see no reason why HBX could not have a safe period during night when a user could allow the GVFX3648 inverters in a split or single-phase setup to charge the battery bank with their built-in chargers.…
