CPS Flex Gateway

The CPS Flex Gateway is a data communications and controls solution for the CPS inverter line. The gateway acts as a Modbus master data logger and gateway solution for communications and controlling commercial and utility scale inverter applications. This flexible solution enables three parallel outbound communications options:

(1) Local pass-through Modbus data to 3rd party solutions,
(2) Ethernet based communications to CPS Service for remote diagnostics and updates,
(3) and a programmable Ethernet XML SunSpec Data Exchange connection for customers who want to manage their data directly.

The Flex Gateway enables remote FW upload by the CPS Service team enabling fast, efficient field service solutions for customers.

The CPS Connect mobile app and Wi-Fi module provides on-site access to program and manage all inverters on the Modbus network at once.
