I agree with your comments -- all they do is waste other people's time
by making them do the additional "work" to reverse engineer.. As I
in the states, I'm not sure if there's some paperwork I'll be signing
life away on which states that I'll not try to reverse engineer any of
sort of thing -- care of Fronius.. I'll keep my eye's peeled for that
of thing.. I suspect not though since I'm just buying a really
consumer electronics device that comes w/ special installation
requirements et-al.

Regarding the lack of communication at night -- does the inverter just
refuse to communicate after a certain point in the day (or evening)?
That just seems odd -- I would think it would do the same thing it
does during the day but basically say that it's generating no power
and whatnot.. Hmm..  Interesting..

With the old proprietary card, the inverter did not stop responding at the
end of the sun day.  The card continued to receive line power to maintain
the clock and volatile memory.  I could get the "real time" readings,
everything from the front panel, including daily and yearly maximums and
totals, well after dark.  After that card was removed, "year" totals were
no longer available, and the daily totals would restart after any outage.

I can communicate with the DataLogger, but not the Inverter, which is shut
off. This makes sense, as this saves some energy, and it does not have
anything new to tell me anyway as there are no "actual" values to report.

If I recall correctly, and I have really tried to purge most of my memory
of this abomination, the datalogger receives line power via the inverter
interface card, so that it continues to function when your PC is off.
