Overall question: How do I connect my EmonTx to my RaspberryPi?
I’m Marie from the United States. I’m working on a senior design project that is intended to use an EmonTx in order to monitor current and voltage. I’d like to connect it to my Raspberry pi. I was told by my project members that it isn’t possible to connect a RaspPi to EmonTx, however I noticed these links:
I searched “serial-direct” as was suggested and saw a post that linked this: WikiLink on Direct Connection
My project partner said he tried to connect the RaspPi like this and it fried his RaspPi so I’m a bit nervous on trying this. I did read the wiki link I provided above and I do have the wires properly connected to the EmonTx. Is there any editing I need to do with the code that’s in the github? This wasn’t my part of the project and my project member had been giving false updates, so I admittedly don’t know much about hardware, but I am capable of learning and I pick up fairly quickly.
Thank you for reading. If I’m missing any information, please let me know and I’ll add it expeditiously.
