Enphase Monitoring

Hello,
I have a simple labview program to direct monitor Enphase photovoltaic microinverters data from the enlighten web site.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8EpqYS_6MMDY1NZV2JHM2hDTW8/edit?usp=sharing

It is neccesary to download and install the National Instruments LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 2012 - National Instruments. http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/2897/lang/es.

It also has the option to upload data to pvoutput.org.

The advantage, compared with https://enlighten.enphaseenergy.com/, of this software is that you can log in your computer the individual inverters data.
Also groups of inverters can be loaded to pvoutput.org.


I hope it will be usefull.

With this software you can monitor and store the invidivual enphase inverters data.

Please, do not hesitate contact me if you find any bug.

Regards
Miguel

    remember: it is neccesary to install labview runtime.

    Connection to enphase has been improved.

    Hello,

    Here is included a program that is able to monitor energy data managed by Efergy or Current Cost energy meters.

    Efergy e2 and Current Cost are low price, wirless, energy meters,

    http://engage.efergy.com/

    http://my.currentcost.com/account/home.php

    You can download at:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8EpqYS_6MMDZFh6a0pqa1pFV2M/edit?usp=sharing

    Also you can upload the energy meters data to PVoutput.org and locally to your computer.

    Hello,

    New versión of enphase monitoring.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8EpqYS_6MMDNnlXRkRES19udVE/edit?usp=sharing

    It should replace previous versión, because of changes made by enphase in its web data access.

    Regards

    how are you able to get the individual inverter data? I can't find it on Enlighten or the Enphase API; they want me to upgrade to the Professional version of Enlighten (one-time $250 fee; not cheap but not bad if it's for perpertual use)

    Hi Jason
    Go to the Enphase site you're registered for (your system). Sign in and select "Devices" from the tabs on the right. You then get a table of all the inverters by serial number. Click on one and you get all the other features for one inverter that you get to use for the whole system (Power, Energy, times...today, last 7 days etc). It shouldn't cost you anything.

    On the right side in the long vertical envelope is the "status" tab. Click on it and at the bottom right you'll see "all devices" and "event log". Event log will show you all the things that have been happening with your system or individual components. This has been a great help to me. My inverters sometimes have lengths of time they don't report. Production is ok, just not reporting at that time. They do eventually get their information to the Envoy, but later. The immediate effect is that your production graph and panel schematic look like there's problems (ask me how I know:)), but there isn't. You just have to be patient and wait until the end of the day to see the proper production numbers and graphing.

    You must be grandfathered in to use the original Enlighten website. (I don't see any of those features.) Enphase is now providing a "simple" version called MyEnlighten by default. To upgrade to the "professional" version of Enlighten there's a one-time $250 upgrade fee.

    If you are going to the Public version of your system and do not see the sign in block in the right upper corner it means someone is logged into your account and did not sign out and is still logged in. How you get it un-done I don't know, call Enphase. When mine has done it I have gone back into my browser history and re opened the link. Maybe your installer stayed logged on when he set the system up.

    If your logged in this will open your account page

    Hi Miguel,

    It's been a while since you posted this program. Does it continue to work with the Enphase website? I tried downloading it, logging in through it to the Enlighten website, entering my API number and stopping and restating the VI multiple times over many minutes yet it always responds with "No devices found". I too am a LabVIEW programmer. Is there any chance you would be willing to share a development distribution of this project?

    Thanks,

    Warren
