Installation KiCad in Ubuntu and Windows

In certain projects we need to go from a schematic diagram to the manufacture of a PCB, there are a variety of platforms and Software for this task, for some time I have decided to adopt free software, in this opportunity I present KiCad. Oficial Website: KiCad Downloads: KiCad I have found this comparative table to…

Meter PZEM-004 + ESP8266 & Platform IoT Cayenne Mydevices

In this opportunity we will integrate our electric consumption or  active power meter , Pzem-004 of  Peacefair  with the IoT Cayenne mydevices platform using an ESP8266 module, later we will create a dashboard to visualize the 4 available variables such as active power, accumulated electric consumption, voltage and current. Previous Tutorials Recommended Introduction IoT Platform Cayenne mydevices…

Electricity consumption meter Peacefair PZEM 004 + ESP8266 & Arduino Nano

For some time I wanted to buy a single-phase electricity consumption meter, a few months ago I got Peacefair Reference PZEM-004 meter, its price seemed affordable, it has the advantages of being a non-invasive meter in the electrical circuit and has a communication protocol to request data such as Active Instantaneous Power “kW”, Voltage “V”,…

Electric Consumption with Meter CHINT (pulses) + ESP8266 & Matrix led MAX7912

This time we will return to an interesting project, the measurement of electrical consumption in an invasive way with a CHINT DDS666 Meter Mono phase, technically it is a residential or residential meter that we have already presented in previous tutorials, finally I will finish what I started more than a year: Warning: Caution is…

Review Solar Panel 10W with Arduino and Node-RED

For a long time I had planned to make some application with photovoltaic panel or common solar panel, in this opportunity I have acquired a monocrystalline solar panel of 10w perfect to power the devices we use in our tutorials. Although this is in design, we will perform a meterological station – Gateway later, and…

Single phase electrical meter two-wire electronic CHINT DSS666

Monofasic two-wire electronic meter DSS666 CHINT Longtime I have this meter and I decided to use it to integrate either with Arduino or ESP8266 and record data in the Emoncms platform (OpenEnergyMonitor). It allows measurement  energy Active or Active Power in home installations. Cyclometric recorder, recording and always positive measures preventing fraudulent losses connections. Since this is…
