    It is possible to connect third-party meter to SMA Cluster Controller via Modbus?

    Kind regards

      Hi Jake,
      Unfortunately you cannot do this with SMA Cluster Controller. Instead you can use SMA Data Manager M (EDMM-US-10) and then connect third-party meter via Modbus/TCP; and with the next release at the end of the month you can also connect Modbus/RTU.
      Kind regards,
      Anke
