    Gosh thanks for the info. Definitely very useful.

    Sara some amazing classes you’ve put together. Thankyou Thankyou.

    They really hummed for me. Still amazed the way they hang together – that’s the fun of optimizing it makes it look simple.
    I usually add a serial debug with a time stamp to watch how long it takes.
    Just wondering – I can see some debug capability built in MS_DBG macro – is it possible to enable it, or the serial debug in some way.
    I tried adding to platformio.ini
    and it compiled some modules, and then came up with an error somewhere – making it look like it should only be done on specific files.?

    For the keller nanolevel it wouldn’t respond to the same modbus requests as Keller acculevel 🙁 – so I ended up having to change the message structure to what I had used on another project.

    I expanded “enum kellerModel” and introduced _model to the kellerMobdus – following yosemitech. Its some very ace class structures…

    So effectively I’ve created a KellerNanolevel.h and modified KellerParent.h/cpp and KellerModbus.cpp/h. Would you like me to submit a pull request for it.?
    PlatformIO is very flexible, and to get started (hadn’t read your emails) I ended up with
    Documents\Arduino\env01\nanolevel\logging_to_EnviroDIY.ino and platformio.ini
    In platformio.ini
    ;src_dir = logging_to_EnviroDIY
    src_dir = .

    Then created
    Documents\Arduino\env01\nanolevel\lib\KellerNanolevel\src – where it automatically looked for source files
    and then copied in files and gave them unique names to make changes
    KellerNanolevel.h KellerNanoParent.h KellerNanoParent.cpp


    So an output with my new sensor enabled and the internal sensors.
