Hi

I made this module as a bolt on (shield) to RPI B+

I logged my energy before via an optical sensor to the meter supplied by the power company , but wanted to see this now on a phase level, that's why I developed this. The Optical sensor giving kWh aggregated will be kept for calibration and aggregated power. I log every minute to an mysql server and via another program I can draw curves for any period of time I have collected data for. This includes also a lot of other parameters like temperature etc.


It's using the Analog Devices ADE7878A for Polyphase Multifunction Energy Metering.

The ADE7878A is high accuracy, 3-phase electrical energy measurement IC with serial interfaces and three flexible pulse outputs. The device incorporate second-order Σ-Δ analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), a digital integrator, reference circuitry, and all signal processing required to perform total (fundamental and harmonic) active, reactive and apparent energy measurement and rms calculations.

ADE7878A datasheet

Board also contains 3 ports for 1-Wire via DS2484 and a RTC using the DS3232M with battery backup. One ID-EEprom according to RPI B+ spec for shield identification.
