MATE control from PC?

Post by dzarcone »

Shot in the dark:

My MATE failed yesterday. Replacement is on the way. But until then, is it possible to control AGS settings without the MATE? I thought maybe the CAT5 wire could plug into a PC, and maybe there is a software that would allow control of settings, sans the MATE.

Thank you

My RE system: GVFX 3624 and MATE/MATE3/AXS Port with four Surette flooded lead-acid batteries (24V). Deactivated wind turbine. System now acts as UPS back-up. Monitored by WattPlot, of course.

Unfortunately, no. The CAT5 cable is simply used to transmit proprietary signals between the MATE and the devices.

There are other Outback devices that could take the MATE's place (MATE3, AXS Port, etc.), and good software that can monitor and control your system through the MATE or other device, but something has to be there to do the translation.
