Great website. G’luck!
Ah hahaha.. Screwed that comment up. Feel free to delete both whenever.
great site- very cool projects.
i found your site while searching for info re: ADE7763. i am hoping to start monitoring my home this year. how did your design finalize? are you collecting data???
I have not finalized the project. I started trying to lay out the board in Eagle and got lost. Then work started to ramp up, then things happened at home, and before I knew it, I was in Siberia shaving a yak.
I did have a prototype system running on one branch circuit in the house. It matched the data provided by a Kill-A-Watt almost perfectly. So I think the concept is sound. I just need some time and the cash to buy all the sensors I need.
I have laid out an ADE7763 breakout in Eagle and it is available here – https://oshpark.com/shared_projects/AfPQvsSs .
I would like any comments or feedback you may have on it. It is untested and based directly off the datasheets for calibration circuit.
Great post. how many projects run without finding any errors ?
There is no such things as a program without errors. I have my fair share.
