Overview

The RPIZCT4V3T1 is a great all round and self contained unit. It can be configured to read both single phase and 3 phase systems.

Several temperature sensors can be interfaces. It is made to host a user provided Raspberrypi zero.

Future enhancement will feature mezzanine stack for additional sensor capacity.

An enclosure solution is proposed using aluminium extruded case.

Specifications

cpu

  • Hosts RaspberryPi Zero
  • ATmega328 mcu (Arduino UNO)

Sensors

  • 4 CT sensors
  • 3 AC Voltage
  • 1 DS18B20 port (temperature)

Power

  • Powered from Raspberrypi (microusb)

Other

  • Fits in Aluminium Enclosure from Evatron
  • Option to stack mezzanine board for additional sensors.

Recommended sensors

  • AC Current sensor: SCT-013-000
  • AC Voltage sensor:
    • UK: 77DB-06-09
    • EU: 77DE-06-09
    • US: STA-4190D
  • Temperature: DS18B20

Temperature Sensor

The temperature port supports mutiple sensor on the same Onewire line.

The sketch is programmed to search for all connected probe at bootup and output all their values when polled. If a new probe is connected the arduino mcu should be restarted for the new probe to be registered.

Multiple probes should connected as shown below.
