5. Device settings page

The device setting page contains settings related to the way the Cloudlink operates and is connected to the system. 


- Buzzer: Enable/disable the alarm buzzer or fault beep.

- Over The Air (OTA) update: Enable or disable automatic update of the Cloudlink firmware.  

  It is recommended not to disable the OTA updates.

  With OTA update enabled the Cloudlink will automatically check if there are newer firmware available through the Wi Fi connection. If newer firmware is found, it will be downloaded and installed.  This allows the Cloudlink to always operate with the latest features (communication protocols, supported inverters etc.)  and bug fixes. 


If OTA update is disabled, it is still possible to manually check if newer firmware is available, by setting the Cloudlink in the Firmware Update Check special mode, by pressing and holding the Mode button until 4 beeps are heard.  If new firmware is found, it will be installed and the Cloudlink will automatically reboot and exit the Firmware Update Check mode.  

- EMeter GSM datasaver: Enable or disable data usage saving mode, when using an Energy Meter with SIM card.

- CAN Speed: Select the speed of the Control Area Network (CAN) bus, used to transfer BMS data from the battery to the inverter.  The default value is 500 kbit/s, which can be changed to match the requirements of the specific inverter used in the system.

- CAN mode: Allow selection of the CAN protocol required by the specific inverter used in the system.  Available protocol selections include: Universal, Pylon, Victron, ATESS, Solis, Deye, HV.  


The protocols supported are continuously being expanded, which is why it is important to keep OTA updates enabled.

- CAN connected to: Select if the Cloudlink/battery’s CAN bus is connected to any device – like an inverter.


(The port used for CAN bus communication will depend on the specific inverter CAN connector pinouts.)  

- RS485/MOD connected to: Select if the Cloudlink/battery’s RS485 bus is  connected to any device – like an inverter.
