The idea of my Project is to develop a solution (outdoor) for read watt-hours (Optical Pulse Outputs) data from one Landis Industrial meter (three phase power) and send this information in a message (SMS) over GSM. The watt-hours data should be sent to a Data Center of customer. What is hardware that i must use for this project ?
I would recommend an emonpi with optical pulse sensor. The latest version of the emonPi includes built-in support for GSM usb modems
Thanks you for recomendation. Remenber that the box should be installed outdoors and the GSM USB can be damaged by the rain. As you know i need to create a solution for this issue.
Please you help and advice with my Project. The idea is to place all board within the same outdoor box. I hope that you can help me ….
I can use a emonTx shield + Arduino + GSM (external antenna) ?
The emonpi is not waterproof, I would not recommend using it externally. Another option would be the use an emonpi (located inside) then use an emonTH outside with a optical senior connected to it.
The emonth is battery powered and will transmitt data back to the emonpi via RF:
The emonth is not naturally waterproof but it can easily be placed in a waterproof enclosure:
