About The Project

Anker Solix Solarbank E1600 - Node Library

Welcome to our ANKER Solix Solarbank E1600 Management Adapter! Please read on to discover how this project can empower you to optimize your Micro-PV (Photovoltaic) plant, enabling efficient energy management and increased self-consumption of solar power.

Project Background

Our project was initiated with a clear mission: to provide remote support for our clients who utilize ANKER Solix Solarbank E1600, without any affiliation with the manufacturer, Anker Power. We recognize the importance of independence and impartiality, ensuring that our users receive unbiased, top-quality support and solutions.

Project Goals

  • Remote Support: We aim to offer seamless remote support to our clients, enabling them to resolve issues and optimize their solar energy systems from anywhere, at any time.
  • Integration into Energy Management Systems: Our project facilitates the seamless integration of ANKER Solix Solarbank E1600 into various energy management systems. This integration empowers users with comprehensive control over their energy production and consumption.
  • Optimization of Self-Consumption: One of the core objectives of our project is to optimize the self-consumption of PV power.

By intelligently managing the generation peaks and storing excess electricity for later use, we help our users maximize their energy efficiency.

This libraray/module uses the APP login credentials of the Anker APP to authenticate with the Anker Cloud Service.

Step 1: User Authentication

To start the login process, provide your username and password. These credentials are necessary to establish a secure connection with the Anker Cloud Service:

const mysolix = new SolixE1600({
  username: 'EmailAsUsedInAnkerApp',
  password: 'AccountPassword',
  country: '2-Letter-Country-Code'

Step 2: Obtaining the auth_token

After successful authentication, you will receive an auth_token. This token acts as a session identifier, allowing you to perform actions on behalf of your account. Safeguard this token as it grants access to your session.

Important Note: Single Device Login

Please note that Anker Cloud Service allows only one device to be logged in at a time. If you attempt to log in from another device while already logged in, the existing session will be terminated.

Daily Login Limits

Additionally, be aware that the Anker Cloud Service imposes restrictions on the number of logins permitted per day. Make sure to stay within the allowed limits to avoid interruptions in your service.

Best Practice: Handling Multiple Instances

If you are instantiating this library/module multiple times within your application, it is advisable to manage your sessions efficiently. One recommended approach is to save the session login configuration using the getSessionConfiguration() method. By doing so, you can maintain a coherent login state across all instances, ensuring a seamless experience for your users.
