Morningstar Ethernet MeterBus Converter (EMC-1 )
The EMC-1 Ethernet MeterBus Converter™ provides the data and communications connection for Morningstar devices to link with other Morningstar devices, surrounding systems, and the outside environment through the internet. It’s simple to connect to Morningstar products equipped with an RJ-11 Meterbus port to enable remote monitoring, custom programming, and access to future cloud-based data services.
Protocols and technologies supported by the EMC
HTTP for LiveView: a simple and straightforward web dashboard for checking system status easily from any device browser
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol): SNMP is an internet standard protocol that is used to manage and monitor devices on an IP network. SNMP allows more detailed monitoring of all system data with existing IT management architecture
MODBUS Industrial Control: provides high-speed monitoring and control for industrial equipment.
Compatible Morningstar products include:
MPPT controllers: TriStar MPPT, ProStar MPPT, and SunSaver MPPT
PWM controllers: TriStar, ProStar (Gen3) and SunSaver Duo
Inverter/charger: MultiWave (future release)
The EMC-1 converts this connection into a fully enabled Ethernet port allowing data transfer to the internet. Once connected, the MeterBus port enables transmission of serial data to the EMC-1 for remote monitoring, configuration, and control, using any type of IP-based network connection. This way, many new, powerful integration options for Morningstar products can be activated and used in remote power systems.
