EM24 Smart Meter read out over Modbus TCP/IP

Hello,

the Smart Meter connection to the Victron controller via Modbus RTU (RS485) is only wisely in case you have a short Way between the Smart Meter and the Victron Controller.

In case you have a long way or different buildings the connection over TCP/IP is required.

To prevent to install a separate RS485 Bus Cable. (using structured cabling !)


Installation Example:


#######Buildings-A############ ###Buildings-B###

EM24 -->RS485-->Modbus TCP Gateway---------TCP/IP---------------->CerboGX



Now the Question:

How can i add the Smart Meter Connection via Modbus TCP/IP to my Cerbo GX?

(FW 2.60)

Could you solve this topic?

I have an EM24 with RS284 and tried to use an Raspberry Pi with mbusd as TCP gateway. The Carlo Gavazzi software recognizes the EM24 via ethernet and can display the values.

Unfortunately, my Multiplus-II does not find the device. Also adding it manually does not help.
