The New PoE Ethernet EPEM (Ethernet Power Energy Monitor) board is in the design stages: Following a couple of weeks technical pondering, I now have a ballpark for the EPEM board design outline and the proof of concept and design is now underway. Below is an overview (in no particular sort order), of some of
Having worked through the slight pain of the early GTEM board setup, which used the ATM90E26 and required a more time consuming, rigorous test and calibration routine, in designing the subsequent board, it was really important that this could be made much easier. This applies not only from production test point of view, but also
An overview of the IPEC board, showing the various connections and options available. The board was designed to be compact, flexible and functional, combined with safe and expandable features.
IPEC, IoT Power Energy Controller and Monitor SDK boards, are in, successfully tested and available for purchase! The first production batch of both IPEC board variants (ESP32E and ESP32UE), have gone through Configuration, Flashing, Bring up, Calibration and Final Testing. All looking good. The development firmware release I hope to complete this week and upload
The below guide shows the Mains and Solar Power Energy Monitor Board options available. With three current models of Power Energy Monitors, three ATM devices (ATM90E26, ATM90E32 and ATM90E36), and two variants of ESP32-WROOM (32E with PCB Antenna and 32UE with U.FL for External Antenna), this guide should assist in selecting the right board for
EPEM follows in the successful development footsteps of the IPEM and IPEC Power Energy Monitoring Boards. EPEM is an Ethernet Power Energy Monitor and Controller. 3 Phase, or 3 x Single Phases, with DAC/PWM/MPWM/MPPT/I2C Expansion Port Outputs. For remote Solar Power Energy installations which have no/limited WiFi coverage, EPEM is an Ethernet based Power Energy Monitor and Controller. *
The below two videos show the IPEC board outputting PWM and DAC voltages, which are directly controlled via the IPEC ATM90E32 and CT Clamp Input. A current clamp is connected to a variable ramping mains AC load and this is then used to test the IPEC board, which is automatically outputting to the DAC and
Both the IPEC and IPEX BETA boards have been undergoing initial bring up and beta testing – which is going very well and all positive for the first test release. Development firmware has also evolved to supporting the ADC, DAC and PWM Outputs. This is the biggest amount of time has been spent on bring-up.
Following a short spell of issues with the old shop checkout, we are pleased to release a new version of the DitroniX.net website. Most of the data has been migrated over and more importantly, the shop has been updated. The old Wiki pages are being migrated over to the GitHub Repository Wiki Pages, along with
A range of enhancements have been made to the original Bring-Up Test Code – it is now a full application. The latest updates include a range of improvements, Web Server, Push OTA, OLED Support, Increased Serial Monitor Information and a couple Buglet fixes. Although the development code was originally intended for board bring-up and testing,
