Description

Morningstar MSC PC MeterBus Adapter

The PC MeterBus Adapter from Morningstar 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 devices. 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.

When converted to an RS-232 connection, the Morningstar controllers and inverters may communicate with a variety of third party serial enabled devices such as:

  • A serial enabled device such as an internet gateway
  • Another MODBUS enabled hardware device at the site that needs to access solar system information
  • A PC running Morningstar’s MS View software or any other compatible software

Establishing a communication link enables the logging or monitoring of data from the controller or inverter as well as the customizing of any programmable settings. The MSC makes a wide variety of data available in Morningstar’s products such as (varied by product):

  • Data logging files
  • Charge Stage
  • Errors and alarms
  • Local and battery temperature
  • Accumulated solar and load amp hours
  • Load current from the battery
  • Battery voltage (Minimum & Maximum)
  • Solar charge current to the battery

All data is transmitted in the form of MODBUS protocol. This industry standard was chosen for a high level of compatibility with a variety of equipment. Each Morningstar product has its own data specification.

  • PC Meterbus Adapter
