First time poster, I’m considering the purchase of an emonPi and joining the community!
I’m based in Australia, have a PV system I’d like to monitor for both production and grid consumption.
I have three questions to help in selection of my hardware:
The shop on this site does not have an Australian plug AC-AC voltage sensor, and I don’t really want to use an international plug adapter. My question is will any 9V AC power supply be appropriate?
How about this one?
I have a EDMI MK7C Utility meter at my house which as far as I can tell should be compatible with the Optical Meter LED Pulse Sensor. Question is: How does adding this sensor benefit my system? What extra info or accuracy does this add? Trying to work out if it’s work purchasing.
If I choose the Optical Sensor and want to also add a temperature sensor to the emonPi can anyone share a wiring diagram or pin-out to set this up with the one RJ-45 plug? I don’t really want to use the RJ-45 Expander as I don’t have a way of neatly enclosing or mounting this and the extra cables.
Thanks for the help in advance.
