003273 – CC Acc, MSC, PC Meterbus Adapter
Morningstars PC Meterbus Adapter (MSC) converts a controllers meter port (RJ-11 phone type connector) to a standard RS-232 serial connector for connection to a PC or other equipment. The MSC may be used with any Morningstar controller or inverter equipped with a meter connection that does not also already have a RS-232 port. By converting to RS-232, the MSC allows Morningstars controllers and inverters to communicate with a variety of third party serial enabled devices such as: -A PC running Morningstars MS View software or any other compatible software. -A serial enabled device such as an internet gateway. -Another MODBUS enabled hardware device at the site that needs to access solar system information. Establishing a communications link enables the monitoring or logging of data from the controller or inverter as well as the customizing of any user-adjustable settings.
