Esperyd´s Raspberry PI project
Hi Daniel...

Would a MODBUS to Ethernet thingy work with your software side of things rather than the little WIFI unit?
I am thinking about something like this...

If it was capable, would it be "contactable" via the local network as far as the Rasp Pi side goes?

Did you find a way to do this?
i think Daniel or someone else will have to update the ISO, but he does not have a B+ model to test it on, and does not have time to update it either.
I i keeping my fingers crossed, as i god a B+ model for Christmas, but have no way of using it, and the sun in comming out soon.

Hi Daniel... I have used your Raspberry ISO and connected up an SDM630 to a simple circuit for testing using the USB to modbus dongle. When I first ran the python script I got some errors that it couldnt find paho.mqtt. I used pip to install that.
Now it says no module named pymodbus.constants.
Webmin says all the packages are up to date so perhaps something not installed or paths issue?

Can you help me sort this out. I'd like to get it working on this simple single phase appliance before installing it into the 3 phase supply to measure the house.

I've reinstalled the ISO to start fresh so I am back to having the "no module named paho.mqtt.client" being shown when I try to start mat.py

I've got it sorted out. Reinstallation of a few things (may have broken when package updates were done?) and changed the constant endian around a bit and updated some links to hosts in the py file...
Happily can report it showing the watts being used by the appliance.

I now have to figure out how to show some gauges for voltage too...
