Provides for remote access of IPN Based charge controllers and displays.
- HTTP web site for data view, parameter setup and data file download
- Periodic HTTP data upload
- 128 days data-logging available as downloadable Excel file
- Compatibility with Blue Sky Charge controllers, IPN network and IPN remote display
The Universal Communications Module (UCM) provides a full-featured communications gateway between your Blue Sky Energy IPN Network and the web. If you have a single IPN compatible charge controller or are operating a full, eight controller network, the UCM helps you monitor your system from anywhere. The UCM provides interfaces for RS485 and TCP/IP Ethernet communication based on Modbus protocol. A built-in HTTP web server allows users to view data and set system parameters via their browser from wherever they are online, without a subscription. Keep track of your system performance with 128 days of data-logging over key performance parameters. Download the data in Excel format or take the UCM with you for download and analysis.
