Power Meter - KNX - node red - Modbus - PV Inverter

Halllo all,

I am new to the forum and also completely inexperienced with Node red. But I hope to learn quickly.

My goal is to provide the electric power values to the inverter - the inverter is the Modbus master - Node Red should be the slave:

Data from KNX Power Meter => KNX Node Red => Node Red Modbus Client with USB adapter (PI) <= Hybrid Inverter

Does anyone happen to have such a solution, or can go with tips.

Many many thanks already

Welcome @colalight890

Just to let you know - I have moved your question away from Core Development - as its not about the core/internals of Node RED.

I don't use any modbus / KNX stuff, but plenty here who do.

Are you sure? Normally that would be the other way round, with node red accessing registers on the device.

If you do want node-red to be a modbus server, however, node-red-contrib-modbus has a server node, though I have never used it.

Hello Colin,
The Inverter is the master and asking the Power Meter in this case. So Node Red must play the Slave role :slight_smile:
For Node Red, Server = Slave - right?

Yes. Let us know whether the server node does what you need.
