I just wanted to let people know about an open-source project that works very well with a Olimex A10, and that is SolarNetwork. This is a Java based platform that uses an SBC to acquire data from a variety of solar inverters, charge controllers, kWh meters and control hardware such as industrial switches, PLCs. Using the Spring, OSGi and other frameworks, and employing a set of RESTful web services to handle 2-way communication with a cloud app server, this is a really great and solid platform for energy management services and experiments involving distributed generation. Anyway if anyone is already using an Olimex for grabbing data from your solar inverter and wants to visualize, analyse and control energy data flows locally, take a look here:

lots of development details on how to get started here on GitHub also:

Thanks! John
