I have tried several times now, even if I press the "enter" button, nothing happens. Has anyone tried to install the update on their 5048MK?

When i push the flash button in the Axpert Reflash, the WR display show UPG YES. 10 seconds after error code in the Software, the display looks like before.

You can press the enter button (right bottom) to start the flashing.

@coulomb & @weber

Do you know if there is a command which will reply with the generated energy (as available on the display)?

I am referring to these display views (Page 32 of the USER'S MANUAL PDF for :

PV energy generated today and Load output energy today

PV energy generated this month and Load output energy this month.

PV energy generated this year and Load output energy this year.

PV energy generated totally and Load output total energy.

No, there are no such commands in the versions of the MK/King firmware that we have seen so far. Suorama's post with an infini protocol manual suggests that the commands, if they are ever implemented, might be QED, QEM, QEY, QET for day, month, year, total.

I concur with Weber. I can find the code that displays the PV energy generated today, but nowhere where it is displayed from a command.

There are no commands starting with QE either. The RTEY command clears PV and load storage, as documented in the PIP GK/MK protocol manual.

This does seem like an oversight. Hopefully it will be corrected in the future, but as of display firmware version 2.00, not yet. Display firmware version 2.00 is the latest I've seen; it comes with main PIP-5048MK firmware 71.86.

ive been using https://diytechandrepairs.nu/raspberry-solar/ for logging from my 5048 Mk in 2019...

on the display i can read out, daily, monthly, yearly and total usage/production - does any1 now of a similar to above project that will save and present these figures in a database?
I use solpiplog with emoncms all setup on RaspberryPi: https://github.com/njfaria/SolPipLog

Yes, I use SolPipLog too.
The graphing function in Emoncms will log all the PIP data.
From that you can export daily, monthly or yearly data to csv file to import to Excell or a dbase if you need.

Yes, that's the challenge ;) - the documentation is there, but it's out of date and confusing - start trawling the 'net...

thanks.. for a start i coubled up with pvoutput.. that is ok for a start.. waiting for https://solarmonitor.enapter.com . i think that will be super.

and in the meanwhile i changed to 3s3p instead og 4s2p.. and all panels south, instead of my east west orientation, that was a bit flaky when there was only sun.. it would not go to full production unless a shadow was over the panels for a sec. so now trying this 3s3+ setup for 2020
