    Hi Mike, great write up!
    One minor thing I noticed;
    The Modbus address shown in the GModbus example is different than the one in the modpoll example. (237 vs 247).
    Not sure what your inverter is but mine is at the default 247. Not a biggy but someone may get confused/stuck if they are trying to use both.

    Hi Dave,
    Thanks. A lot of work, but worth it.

    Thanks for spotting the error. I have changed the Modbus Address in the post to 247 and redone the screenshot to reflect this. I went back and tested it, and it connected successfully.

    I’ve tried this and got it installed but the integration caused my inverter to restart every 5-10 mins. Anyone else seen this?

    Hi David,
    From what I understand, this solution should not affect your inverter in any shape or form. The direction is from the Inverter to Home Assistant, not the other way around. Something else is causing your inverter to restart every 5-10 minutes.

    […] jumped the gun in our last post. I explained how to integrate the FoxESS into Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi?, but I didn’t explain how or why we came about getting the FoxESS solar battery storage […]
