      Bailey, I like the way you think! There is an RS485 port (X2) on the EDMM that is currently inactive. It is on the roadmap to have this be functional with a near-term FW release. However, I do not know if that will include SMA Data I support to allow communication with a Sunny Island -US directly. We will definitely make noise about it if or when that happens.
