Temperature sensor reading sharing

latinhawklatinhawk Registered Users Posts: 25 ✭✭
My Schneider sw4048 inverter has a temperature sensor and it reads fine. I just added a Schneider 60 150 mppt charge controller that has no temperature sensor. They are both daisy chained together and I thought that they would exchange temperature data but it looks like they dont. Is there a parameter on either or both that would make temperature sharing possible?

    The network shares data of one sensor with all devices. Even if it is missing on one device it is being shared. It is a mistake to use more than one sensor as "undefined behavior" can result. This is in the manual BTW.
     You can measure the offset with a voltmeter and temperature reading to prove that it is working.

    Thanks. My worry came from the temperature reading not being listed on the controller side.
