CUMonitor as Canbus Controller

CanBus Control with CUMonitor

So the aim is to create a  zero export controller using CUMonitor.

To interface with the Invertor a device is required to connect to the CAN bus.

From a previous investigation for Badger we established that using a daughter board with the CUMonitor is a viable way to interact with the CAN Bus.

So establishing control of the inverter should be possible using similar hardware.

The good part is that no existing wiring will need to be changed and adding the control will only require low voltage CAN bus connections.

One problem is that the inverter is mounted in the roof space and that the Can bus controller will need direct access to the inverter
