This will not work. There is no information in the Text protocol to reach VRM. If you were to get the serial to ethernet and get to your switch, then what were you planning to do from there? Some have done this in order to use ethernet as a transport mechanism to get the serial data a long distance, it is converted back to serial at the other end.
You really need a Venus device like a CCGX or VenusGX. Remember, you can install Venus OS on a RaspberryPi for a very cost effective solution.
Hi MatthewXX et al
Did you arrive at a solution? We ended up using a RS232 to Ethernet bridging device, plus a second device (RS232 to TTL) to ensure signalling compatibility between the SmartSolar charger (MPPT 75/15) and the bridge.
