I’m having fits trying to get the ACW-411 to work on anything. I’ve enabled “Serial to Network” in the UART settings so I assume to access a serial connection it would now just be [ip address of br1 mini]:4001 assuming we leave it with the default Local TCP Port. But nothing is working. I started with the end goal of connecting to a serial card that just has TX,GRND, and RX and doing a punch down end to get the right pins. But after that didn’t work, I decided to try to connect to standard things like my RS232 connection on a Tripp Lite UPS. That didn’t work. So then I made a rollover cable hoping that would work with the console port on a Balance 305. So I’m missing something…probably something obvious.
So just for testing, what would it take to get the ACW-411 talking to the console port on a Balance 305? The end goal is a serial card in an electrical meter but before digging through settings on the meter I want to make sure I have the BR1 Mini working correctly.
