Inverter PVS800 Run time period

Hi everyone,

In a Solar project we have used PVS800 central inverters and communicated it with ABB PM753-ETH PLC using MODBUS-RTU Protocol, at a register value at 01.25 of inverter there is inverter's TIME OF USAGE in HR(Hour) format.

Customer Needs time usage in HR:MIN:SEC format and i cant find it in Firmware Manual.

Is there any way to do so or logic or Somthing in Codesys.

Please help me out.

Register 01.25 in the inverter is described as 1=1h, so if you are using Modbus communication, most probably you will receive INT or DINT values like 0, 1, 2 ... -> means number of round hours.

I think you can't receive min and sec from this register, only hours.

Instead, take a RUN command and write a seconds counter in AC500
