    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 a 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.
    • 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. The MSC makes available a wide variety of data stored in Morningstar’s products such as (varies by product):
    • Battery Voltage (including minimum and maximum)
    • Solar charge current to the battery
    • Load current from the battery
    • Accumulated solar and load amp hours
    • Charge Stage
    • Errors and alarms
    • Local and battery temperature
    • Data logging files

    The MSC is sold as a kit that includes the following:
    • PC Meterbus Adapter
    • RS-232 cable with connectors: 1.8 meters (5.9 feet)
    • RJ-11 cable with connectors: 1 meter (3.3 feet)
