Hardware Set Up
Connecting your Gatway is very easy. Using standard Cat 5 cables you can connect the inverter to the gateway and the gateway to the home router using the standard ethernet heads.
At the inverter end, the connection is done viaa terminal block. Just identify pin 7(Data +) and pin 8(Data -) and connect them to the respective ports in the inverter card. They generally are white-brown (7) and brown(8).
Cable pin 7 (+) à Port 3 or 5 (Positive +)
Cable pin 8 (-) à Port 4 or 6 (Negative -)If you are chaining multiple inverters, ensure the red termial resistor is ON in the last inverter.
- Gateway Update.
Now that everything is set up and connected to the internet, connect to the local network (ie: router’s wifi).
