RS-485 port setup

The meter is factory-configured with default serial communications settings that you may need to modify before connecting the meter to the RS-485 bus.

The meter is factory-configured with the following default serial communications settings:

  • Protocol = Modbus RTU

  • Address = 1

  • Baud rate = 19200

  • Parity = Even

You can use a communications converter (USB to RS-485 or RS-232 to RS-485) or Ethernet gateway device to connect to the meter.

NOTE: Your meter’s serial communications port ID (Com1 ID) is used in both Ethernet and serial communications; you need to change the Com1 ID meter property in ION Setup if you modify the meter’s RS-485 address.
