The USB MeterBus Adapter (model: UMC-1) converts the Morningstar MeterBus RJ-11 electrical interface to a standard USB 2.0 interface. This allows communication between a PC and Morningstar charge controllers or inverters that have a MeterBus connection, but no serial or other communications port.
The UMC-1 may be used with any Morningstar controller or inverter equipped with a meter connection that does not also already have a RS-232 port. Compatible Morningstar products include:
- ProStar MPPT
- Sunsaver MPPT
- ProStar (Gen3)
- SunSaver DUO
The UMC-1 is required for:
- Programming custom charging set-points
- Logging data using Morningstar’s MSView PC software
- Communication with any 3rd party hardware that supports MODBUS™ communication.
