Flex WiFi Sensor


FlexSensor v3 -Blue

New features

The FlexSensor v3 shares all the same features as the previous versions bus with some cool additions.
  • Expansion Clone board of the poppular IotaWatttm . This is an open-hardware 14 channel WiFi connected electric power monitor. Using MCP3208 12 bit ADCs to sample voltage and current.
  • Battery power module, run your sensor of regular 1.5V batteries!
  • Updated Power-supply, connect even more sensors to your board.
 

Battery Module

You can now efficiently run the FlexSensor v3 with our custom made battery module.  

OpenEnergyMonitor IoTaWatt compatible module

IotaWatt is an open-hardware 14 channel WiFi connected electric power monitor. FlexSensor v3 shares the same hardware components as the original project and you can use the same software together with the expansion module. It’s based on the ESP8266 IoT platform using MCP3208 12 bit ADCs to sample AC voltage and current. IoTaWatt can log data locally to on-board SD card and post directly to Emoncms.org via WiFi
