Call tristar pg. 8 has a list of the data available through MODBUS; has battery voltage, amp hours, temperature (with a remote temperature sensor) has the modbus specs “The serial port on the TriStar is opto-isolated per UL requirements. For this reason, the TriStar serial port is "port powered", which means it requires a small amount of power from the host (PC or other device). “ [ FilterLab, freeware analogue filter design software] Other: []
