Stacking Configuration

General stacking information is described in the RPICT stacking page.

Software Configuration

Using a serial line terminal program one can configure the following:

- Polling interval
- Output format (csv or emoncms)
- Calibration values (Voltage and Current)
- Voltage/current combinations for real power computation.
- Output channels

The documentation for serial configuration can be found on this page.

Default Sketch

Default Sketch V2.5.

Default Sketch V2.6.

Default Sketch V2.7.1.

(note boards are sold already flashed with latest firmware).

noOSC Sketch

The Default sketch allows up to 28 computation nodes to be run. If more are needed for higher stacks then we recommend to use the noOSC sketch. This is the same as the default sketch but Over Serial Configuration (OSC) as been removed to allow up to 40 nodes to be computed. Configuration has to be edited in the sketch.
