The ENP-RS485 Module must be horizontally mounted on 35 mm DIN rail according to IEC 60715.
# Connection Examples
1 Amp Circuit Breaker recommended to use on power line for the ENP-RS485 Module.
Wi-Fi protocols – 802.11 b/g/n/e/i (802.11n up to 150 Mbit/s).
Bluetooth protocols – Bluetooth v4.2 BR/EDR and BLE specification.
Alternating current voltage of 110 - 220 V is potentially lethal!
All works on assembly and installation should be performed only with a disconnected power supply!
The installation and assembly of electrical equipment must be carried out by electrically qualified persons.

# Lua API
Lua API lets to interact with 3rd party devices via our UCMs (opens new window). It includes functions that implement various kinds of interaction. For more information please visit Enapter Developer Toolkit (opens new window) and ENP-RS485 Reference (opens new window).
# The Module Is Not Receiving Telemetry
Check the jumper inside the ENP-RS485 module (install if needed):
- Dismount the antenna from the ENP-RS485 module.
- Remove the front cover.
- Remove the back side of the module.
- Carefully push the module control board down.
- Install jumper J5 according to the picture below.
