emonTx V3

The emonTx V3 is the latest generation of the open source emonTx low power wireless energy monitoring node. The unit has been re-designed using surface mount (SMT) electronics to enable automated pre-assembled manufacture.

Features

- Emontx v3 can measure real power, apparent power, power factor, rms voltage and current on 4 different mains circuits, it also has inputs for temperature and humidity sensing. - Pre-assembled SMT design - A single AC-AC adapter can now be used to power the emonTxV3 and provide AC voltage measurement - 4x CT current sensing inputs - An on-board 3x AA battery option - Flexible choice of RF radio module and removable microcontroller

Optical Pulse Counting

Direct Optical Interface

if you have an Elster meter (tested with Elster 100C) the emonTx V3 with an IR TSL261R sensor can be used to interface directly with the meter protocol to read off the exact accumulated watt hours that you have generated or used. This reading can be used on it's own or to cross-check and calibrate CT based measurement. See here for original blog post
