RPEM ESP8266 SDK V1 – Specification

WIKI:

RPEM v1 is a STEM project, providing a flexible Remote Power Energy Monitor SDK for your Solar/Wind/Battery/Inverter System.

This is a new product for May 2022 – Details are being updated

The production PCBs have been ordered, where they will then be populated, tested and expected to be in stock late in June.

  • The SDK Kit is available:
    • RPEM-1-C with four x SMT current clamp 3.5mm sockets mounted.
    • RPEM-1-V without the sockets, for four x voltage monitoring.
