The factory default Modbus address of the EKO MS sensor equals the last 2 digits of the sensor serial number. Set the Modbus address in the station parameters.

Setting the Modbus address is not required for pyranometers from other manufacturers.
  1. In the Web UI, go to Settings > Station parameters.
  2. According to how many EKO sensors you have and in which functions they are in the weather station, locate the correct parameter groups on the parameter list.
    • eko_ghi_x (GHI = Global Horizontal Irradiance)
    • eko_ghi_r_x (Reflected Global Horizontal Irradiance. The sensor is used as the downwards-facing part of an albedometer.)
    • eko_poai_x (POAI = Plane of Array Irradiance)
    • eko_rpoai_x (RPOAI = Rear side Plane of Array Irradiance)
  3. In parameter address, change the value to be the last 2 digits of the EKO MS sensor serial number.
    The address parameter is visible only for the sensors included in the weather station.
  4. To save the changes and take them into use, select Save and restart script.
