Nodes

ocean_server

ocean_server controls an array of battery controllers. The API below is for informational purposes only; it is not intended for use by anything other than power_monitor, which is where you should look for power data.

The ocean_server node will report the status of the batteries to diagnostics. It will warn on the diagnostics if a battery does not update within a timeout.
