EPEVER TCP-306 provides remote communication and control of EPEVER solar charge controllers via an Ethernet connection. The product enables remote monitoring and control of EPEVER charge controllers through a wired Ethernet connection. The TCP 306 is a serial device server that connects with EPEVER solar controller: XTRA, Triron, and Tracer-AN (10-40A); inverter: IPower-Plus and IPT, and inverter/charger via an RS485 port. It transfers collected data to the EPEVER cloud server to realize remote monitoring, parameter setting, and data analysis. The TCP device server’s IP address, TCP server, and TCP client can be modified by the PC software.
The EPEVER Wi-Fi Adapter 2.4G RJ45 D is designed to provide wireless communication between EPEVER solar charge controllers and various monitoring devices via Ethernet. This product allows for wireless monitoring and control of EPEVER charge controllers through an Ethernet connection. The adapter can transmit all operational data from the EPEVER solar controller, inverter, or inverter/charger to the EPEVER cloud server in real-time via a local 2.4G Wi-Fi network. Users can remotely monitor the connected devices and program parameters via the EPEVER server platform and mobile APP.
The eLOG-01 Logger is used for data logging, allowing users to review and analyze past performance data of their solar systems. This product records and stores solar system data for later analysis. eLOG01 is a record accessory matched with the controller of RS485 interface, it can record solar system working data and also real-time monitor system status via PC software. The default record interval is every 10 minutes, with record range to 4 months (up to 20000 pieces of data)
The Accessories Extension Module (RS485-1M2S Extension Module) expands the functionality of EPEVER charge controllers by providing additional ports for communication and control. This product enables users to add additional communication and control options to EPEVER charge controllers, expanding their functionality. The RS485-1M2S extension module is an optional accessory that can extend the RS485 communication port of our solar controller/inverter. Based on the standard Modbus protocol, the user can monitor the operating status and set parameters through the monitoring devices connected to the RS485-1M2S extension module.
RC-11 2.4G Remote Controller is an optional accessory that allows users to remotely control EPEVER LED street light controllers with suffixes LPLI/LPLW, for instance: Tracer LPLI Series and LSLPLI Series.
Users need an on-site operation. The communication distance is less than 20 meters.The communication distance of the LPLI Series is less than 10 meters. The communication distance of the LPLW Series is less than 20 meters. Users can check RC11 specification for more information.
Within the distance of communication, users can monitor and adjust the charging parameters and system settings of their solar systems. The remote controller has a clear LCD display and a simple button interface, making it easy to use.
