FAQ

1. How many T80 charge controllers can be monitored from one Gateway?

Up to 31

2. How many TSW inverters can be monitored from one Gateway?

Up to 31

3. How many total devices can be monitored from one Gateway?

Up to 255

4. How often is data sent from the Gateway to the server?

The server asks for data from a device every six seconds, or 14,400 times a day.  If there is one T80 in the system, then there is data from the T80 every 6 seconds.  If there is a T80 and a TSW inverter, then there is data for the T80 every 12 seconds and for the inverter every 12 seconds

5. Does the Gateway have to be powered from the included AC power supply?

No, the Gateway can receive power from the T80 or TSW.

6. Does the Gateway have to be programmed or setup?

No, the Gateway is strictly plug-and-play.

7. How can I tell if the Gateway is communicating with the T80 or TSW and sending data to the Internet?

Refer to the Gateway user guide for detailed information, however if the Transmitting Serial LED blinks every 6 seconds then the Gateway is communicating with the server.  If the Transmitting Serial and Receiving Serial lights are blinking every 6 seconds then the Gateway is communicating with the server and with the attached Apollo devices.

8. Can a user use software on a local PC to communicate and get data from the Apollo devices using the Gateway?

Yes the Gateway will accept incoming requests.  Apollo can provide sample code for communicating on a local network.
