Hi, I posted here about 2 months ago, and have learned a lot since then. Just got hold of a Tx and USB programmer and am immediately clueless again.
(previous post here: Newb questions about external dataloggers)
I’m wanting to measure short term power usage for an education program. The room is not internet connected, so my goal is to create a local metering system than I can turn on, discuss, and then turn off. Storage and long term metering is unnecessary.
Ideally this means connecting directly to the PC.
Can I stream data from the EmonTx via USB to my PC (which has EmonCMS running locally)?
How? I have the programmer drivers installed, but I don’t know what the next step is in getting an input.
Or do I need to set up an ethernet connection instead?
Thanks in advance.
