Description

 

GTIE is a Grid Tie Inverter Extender board, based on an ESP8266, which interfaces to a Mains Current Clamp for remote monitoring of AC current.  This board is designed to interface any Home Automation System.

  • Designed to be battery powered, via a standard CR123A Lithium Battery, or from an external DC supply.
  • Allows remote current sensing and sending data over Wi-Fi, such as to Domoticz or another Home Automation system.

The GTIE board is suppled fully tested.

 

Future

This board will be complimented with a GTIL2 Wi-Fi ‘receiver’ which directly connects to the SUN-1000GTIL2 and SUN-2000GTIL2 series Current Clamp input and RS232 port.  (This additional board is TBA 2023 Q1).

 

Options

An I2C 2.54mm header is provided in the middle of the board, which will allow an optional OLED display (such as a SSD1306 I2C), to be directly mounted / connected on the board.  OLED not included.

A CT clamp maybe plugged into the board such as the popular split-core YHDC SCT-013-000 (using a standard 3.5mm mono jack plug).  CT not included.

The OPTO input maybe optionally used to ‘read’ an Electricity Meter Pulse, using a photo sensor such as a 3DU5C, TSL257 or GL5528.  OPTO not included.

The GTIE is designed to fit into an enclosure which is available to buy separately, if needed.

In the Box

GTIE-1 ESP8266 board.

You will need to update the firmware with your preferred open source firmware, using a standard micro USB cable (not included).  Working examples of test code can be found in our Wiki

  • 1 x GTIE-1 ESP8266 Board
    • SMD (Surface Mounted Components) Populated.
    • Fully Tested
  • 1 x Terminal Block (Not Soldered)
  • 1 x Strip of straight pin header
  • 1 x CR123A Battery Holder (Not Soldered)

Due to potential shipping restrictions and being readily available, a standard CR123A Lithium Battery is not included and should be sourced locally.
