  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.

  4. Time to depletion (or set Low DoD)

    When consuming from batteries show an estimated time to depletion (or to reach set Lo DoD) based on the last xyz number of minute average consumption. Show this on the Dashboard.

  5. Things you could power with your solar panels today!

    A widget in the Dashboard that more graphically illustrates power generation, quantifying it with some commonly known energy consuming device...like a lightbulb! ie. "You could power 100 dryer cycles with the energy you made today..." etc.

  6. Ability to connect a fuel gauge to Optics to read the fuel status of a standby generator

    Ability to connect a fuel gauge to Optics to read the fuel status of a standby generator could be linked to other data as well such as wind speed

  7. Sell SOC instead of Sell Volt

    Option to choose the SOC instead of the Voltage for the Sell Volt. On Lithium batteries setting this value with voltages is difficult because the selection intervals are to big. The ability to select this with the SOC is easier to understand.

  10. 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)

  13. Time ETA display of empty battery bank

    I am wondering if the system has a runtime remaining based upon consumption and state of charge / voltage. That would be helpful to give an at a glance look at when you will run out of power in a time based format i.e. time to DOD 50v - 12/3/17 12:34pm. That would be absolutely great. Thanks!

  14. enhance the system status display

    If I am generating (solar) a lot more than using, say 4000w vs 500w, I would think that if I was off-grid with batteries it should say PRODUCING rather than CONSUMING. Since we always have a small load, it is pretty useless to say Consuming 100% of the time.

    I would also propose a needle meter that points up (12 o'clock) at 0 net watts, and moves to the right if storing/charging/selling and to the left if consuming/discharging the batteries (or buying).

  16. Peak KW Production Per Day

    Need a way to record the maximum KW production per day. This would help in setting benchmarks and checking the efficiency of the equipment.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
