Can I use Modbus to do real time controls on my Lithium Ion batteries?

Issue
Is using Modbus to do real time controls supported by the Conext inverters

Product Line
Conext XW+, Conext SW, Conext Combox

Environment
Any situation where the charging voltages are actively controlled.

Cause
The customer is looking to do real time battery management using a PLC or similar tool.  

Resolution
The inverters do not respond well to having the bulk and absorb voltages altered during a charge cycle.  Charging behavior becomes unpredictable if the charging thresholds are changed during a charge cycle.  Unfortunately, this type of active controlling, regardless of battery type, is not condoned nor supported by Schneider Electric.
