I’m running 3 x EP500P (one per phase) now and all are working well. Unfortunately there is still no access available for getting basic information out of the devices unless running a MQTT Server or any other special software. On the control board of The EP500P on the front side (near behind the AC output ports) is a mini 2-pin socket marked with “485”. I assume that this is a RS485 port providing A+ and B- (?)
Has anyone an idea if it works and what type of protocol is used here. It would be a perfect solution if we can get information out of this port by feeding it to any smart home system. I fear Buletti will not provide an appropriate communication port in near future.
Thank you all for your reply.
Fortunately I spent some time with HomeAssistant where I’m running the Add-ons “Bluetti to MQTT” together with Mosquitto broker. It was less complicate as expected and I have all information and status messages available now, transferred from the three EP500P via HomeAssistant to my RaspberryMatic system.
