Hello, my accountname ist peterneubauer
Hardware: emonTx with 3 CTs, 5V-DC and AC-AC-adapter, emonESP
Version: In my order I mentioned that i want to monitor 3-phase system. I don’t know if this was considered to the deployed versions of the emonTX or emonESP. so currently the versions are unknown to me.
As mentioned I want to monitor 3-phases. (according to the forum, using just one AC-AC adapter and one emonTX, I will need to use the 3-phase-voltage-estimation-firmware for the emonTX)
Assuming the correct firmwares preinstalled I followed the guide for 3phase usage. I disconnected power from the emonTX, then 1.) connected emonESP 2.) all 3 CTs 3.) connected 5V DC power via USB and 9V AC-AC adapter simultaneously.
(Here I have to mention, previously I sucessfully ran the HW-configuration with the EmonPi (as base) and the emonTX, means the emonESP was not attached to the Tx. The Tx sent the data via Emonpi to emoncms.org)
Issue 1: Cannot connect emonTX to Emoncms.org server
I followed the guide regarding the emonTX-web-configuration: “Emoncms Server*” with value:“emoncms.org”, “Emoncms Node Name*” value:“0”, and the “Write apikey*” copied from emoncms.org Account information (copy/paste). Still the emontx tells me “Saved - Connected: No”.
Information: Within the home-Wifi connected, the emontx/emonesp has a default route to the internet (Standard provider Wifi-Router/DHCP), however similar IP-clients autoconfig and have access to the internet via the network connected.
Issue 2: “Latest Data” on the emonESP seems wrong.
Section “Latest Data” on the emonTX-webinterface displayes (Key Value) T1: 3935, CT2: 325W, T0: 20.5C
I have to say, that running the previous hardware-configuration with the emonpi as base, the correct values for CT1,2 and 3 were collected sent to emonpi and further to emoncms.org.
Reading through the openenergymonitor-forum, I think the current version of my emontx may not be recent enough. Capturing 3-phases with emontx and using emonesp as Wifi-connection needs recent firmware version for emontx and maybe some configuration like baudrate (max 9600) to both emonTX and emonESP. (But I don’t know how to archieve this currently)
current Version Information emontx (emonESP Menue: “7.System”) is v2.3.0. (is this the emontx firmware? or the emonESP’s?)
As you can see I need some help
I would appreciate related instructions on my issues 1 and 2. Willing to provide any further necessary information!
Maybe I only need the right links into the openenerymontor-forum.
(I am willing to obtain an USB to UART adapter in order to upload the appropriate firmware for my scenario. I would appreciate a guide or some kind of checklist for that, maybe just the right links in the forum).
Thanks in advance
