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.
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. This includes the Sunsaver MPPT, SunSaver DUO, and SureSine products.
