I have a new generator speced above, and need to make the MODBUS RTU connection, but cant find where to land the cable. I have the IOM, it has a terminal strip diagram with terminals, but doesnt give the location of the strip. I looked in the right side panel, where it seems all the terminal strips are, but didnt see exactly what I expected. I did find a connection labeled "modbus", except it already has wires landed on both sides of the terminal strip.and the wires seems to be connected to internal devices as far as I can tell.
Heres hoping someone can help.
Thanks in advance

Gregory Poole has been nice enough to post the Application and Installation Guide for EMCP 3 controls here,
It has the wiring information you need to identify the Modbus connections at the EMCP connectors.

Yes, have used converters from this company was good success, http://www.antaira.com/products/serial-to-fiber
You need to limit how many times you go from copper to fiber media, as each transition adds latency, and can result in timeout errors. Depending on what you are actually doing it may be better to convert to Modbus TCPIP.
Hope that helps, MikeL.
