Pwutseltronics’ first creation! :)

The Metertrekker can be used to read out your DSMR compliant energy meter via the P1 port. It can be used with Wemos D1 mini (compatible) MCUs (not included).

Status

It’s currently in the alpha testing stage. A prototype has been operational for some time and the first units with this PCB version will soon be assembled.

Log

current: waiting for delivery of 6P6C jacks
2019-11-27: parts arrived (except for 6P6C jacks)
2019-11-12: first batch of PCBs received
2019-10-25: first batch of PCBs ordered

Usage

Using the firmware I wrote, you can easily push the extracted data to MQTT, including in Influx format. Then using e.g. Telegraf this can easily be forwarded to InfluxDB and stored. Together with Grafana this gives a complete data retrieval, storage and display system. :)

BOM

Upon ordering (which is not yet possible) thou shalt receive a kit consisting of the following:

  • 1x Metertrekker PCB
  • 1x 6P6C jack
  • 1x short 6P6C or 6P4C cable (depending on DSMR version)
  • 1x 2N7000 transistor
  • 1x 470R resistor
  • 1x 2k4 resistor
  • 1x 4k7 resistor
  • 1x 470µF ≥6.3V capacitor

On request, I’ll also include a 2x3 RM2.54 pin socket for the Shitty Add-on Connector. I don’t include them by default as most people probably won’t use it.

Of course it’s patent pending, all rights reserved, completely vegan, etc.
