Electronic Measurements

New wattmeter project

wattmeter screen As a result of the popularity of the DIY Arduino Wattmeter and questions about additional functionality, the idea arose to design and produce a more practical wattmeter. This product will be developed in collaboration with the embedded software company Embiant. Once a satisfactory design and prototype is ready, it will be made available by a Kickstarter project.

The first ideas about the requirements and functionalities are the following:
- power measurement: real, apparent, reactive, peak and energy,
- voltage and current measurement: mean, RMS, standard deviation, peak, frequency, phase, flux and charge,
- suitable for AC and DC,
- auto ranging,
- logging selectable parameters on a SD-card,
- separate voltage and current terminals,
- 4.24 kV isolation between the measuring terminals and the other connectivities,
- connectivities by: usb, wifi,
- powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery (charged by usb),
- full color touch screen for read outs, graphs and settings.
