eBus 2.0 new binding - cannot access Vaillant VR61 module with external .json

Hello @csowada,

I started experimenting with your ebus 2 binding. It is great.
Thank you for all your work end efforts.:+1:

I have a question on the integration of external json configuration files.

In my setup I run a Vaillant ecoCOMPACT VSC 196 with an external VR61 mixer module to drive a sendoc heating circuit for a low temperature underfloor heating.

I am connected to the eBus via Esera USB coupler. I can successfully get and control the Vaillant VRC 430 and the BAI00 standard parameter.

What is completely missing is the VR61 part and all my attempts to include were unfortunately without success.

From my understanding VR61 is not provided in the standard config scope of your latest binding.

So I downloaded the VR61 config which I felt appropriate from you github store:

and linked the file in the config in the binding configuration:

This is my installed version:

openhab> feature:list | grep eBUS
ebus-binding                                x 2.4.0.RC4        x x        x Started     x ebus-distro-2.4.0.RC4   x eBUS 2.0 binding incl. eBUS core libs

Do you have any hint for me?

Hello @MWerk,

have you already solved your problem?
I was able to include the configuration file, but I have some problems to define the right ebus master and slave adresses. Do you know the right ones?

How do you solve the binding problem.
I also try to add my *.json file but it didn’t show me in my paper ui/Binding/ebus

Hi @Trainer, the deskription from @MWerk has helped me to find the right way. You must download the config files ([VR61 Config](https://github.com/csowada/ebus-ebusd-configuration/blob/master/vaillant/V6100.50.v61.mc_configuration.json and the template config template config)

Both file are you add to the ebus binding.

Hello @John_Doe,
unfortunately I can not report much prgress here. I am still stuck with the problem described in my initial post.
A new heating season is starting and I still don’t have my 2nd heating circuit under openHAB control.

When I try to load the VR61 specific .json file I get the following error in the log.
I am thinking about a test with the experimental ebusd connector.
https://community.openhab.org/t/experimental-ebus-2-0-ebusd-connector/71167
I successfully used ebusd before with FHEM.

Maybe @csowada has a helpful hint for us…
