This is the new version of the RPICT7V1. It now features the same microcontroller as an Arduino UNO. The best of all is the possibility to stack up to 5 boards together to increase the sensor capacity onto one single raspberrypi.

  • 7 AC current sensors.
  • 1 AC Voltage sensor.
  • Compute real power.
  • Fit on Raspberrypi 4 holes mounting pattern.
  • AtMega328 Mcu (Arduino UNO)
  • MCP3208 ADC
  • Stackable (up to 5 boards together)

Stacking Configuration

General stacking information is described in the RPICT stacking page. RPICT_Stacking

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.
Over Serial Configuration - Sketch 2.2

Over Serial Configuration - Sketch 2.4
Over Serial Configuration - Sketch 2.5
Over Serial Configuration - Sketch 2.6
Over Serial Configuration - Sketch 2.8

Online config 01.png Starting from sketch 2.4 the board can be configured with the online configurator.


Default Sketch

Default Sketch V2.5.

Default Sketch V2.6.

Default Sketch V2.7.1. (Stable)

Default Sketch V2.8.0. (Not Stable)

(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.

noOSC Sketch v1.0
noOSC Sketch v1.1

Emoncms Config (Emonhub)

Make you read this first.

For default configuration. Used as single board only (not stacked).

   nodename = my_RPICT7V1
   hardware = RPICT7V1
      names = RP1, RP2, RP3, RP4, RP5, RP6, RP7, Irms1, Irms2, Irms3, Irms4, Irms5, Irms6, Irms7, Vrms
      datacode = 0
      scales = 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1
      units =W,W,W,W,W,W,W,mA,mA,mA,mA,mA,mA,mA,V
