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…

Arduino IDE for ESP32 modules

Given the great popularity of the ESP8266 programmed from Arduino IDE in great contribution by Ivan Grokhotkov thanks, Currently for ESP32 modules has been allowed to program them from Arduino IDE in collaboration with espressif, Although it is a project under construction so far the control of certain hardware is in the process of migration. Currently…

Introduction Platform Mongoose OS

For a long time I wanted to test Mongoose OS, this time we will make a brief introduction and installation in a Linux operating system “lubuntu” Ubuntu/Debian. Mongoose OS is an open source operating system for Internet of Things (IoT) and low power microcontrollers such as ESP32 , ESP8266 , TI CC3200, STM32  license Available under dual GPLv2 / business…

ESP-IDF for Modules ESP32 Complete Installation

This time we will install and configure  Espressif IoT Development Framework platform (ESP-IDF) from scratch, this is the official espressif development platform for the ESP32 modules. In previous tutorials we talked a little about the ESP32 that have Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz band) and Bluetooth 4.2 in a single module among other features. ESP32 eBox&Widora first review I took…

ESP32 eBox&Widora first review

More than a year ago Espressif released the long-awaited ESP32, these modules are low cost microcontrollers, low power consumption, Wi-Fi chip, Bluetooth and what is really amazing the Tensilica Xtensa LX6 dual-core microprocessor !!, another interesting fact has improvements in security and secure connections, is the successor of esp8266. Unlike ESP8266 espressif design the ESP32…
