Morningstar MSC, PC Meterbus Adapter

Morningstar’s PC Meterbus Adapter (MSC) converts a controller’s 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 an RS-232 port.

By converting to RS-232, the MSC allows Morningstar’s controllers and inverters to communicate with a variety of third-party serial enabled devices such as a PC running Morningstar’s MS View software or any other compatible software, a serial enabled device such as an internet gateway, or another MODBUS enabled hardware device at the site that needs to access solar system information. Establishing a communication link enables the monitoring or logging of data from the controller or inverter as well as the customizing of any user-adjustable settings.
