GL.iNet GL-AR300M16-Ext (USB Serial Port)

Does the USB serial port on the GL.iNet GL-AR300M16-Ext have any functionality after loading AREDN firmware?

I am asking because I have a solar charge controller that is accessible via serial port and I would like to intergrate that charger controller into my AREDN network at my location.

Thanks in advance.

Not serial, but Wi-Fi

Hi, Hank:
 
Perhaps, if you had a Wi-Fi dongle for your solar controller,
you could configure the AR300M16 as an Access Point.

My brother has a Growatt 24V SPF 3000TL LVM with a Wi-Fi dongle and
uses a Raspberry Pi with Wi-Fi configured as an Access Point.
The RPi monitors and collects data from the controller and presents charts via
web pages.
I hope this helps.
3s, Chuck
