At Allied, several IoT projects have been completed. This time around a Data Logger with a built-in wifi module was built in order to read & send data of power consumption.
It’s for anyone who wishes to check & analyze data of their power consumption, observe usage patterns and optimize usage of power based on the analysis.
Above is the WEMOS D1 mini as the Wi-fi capable development board with 4MB flash based on ESP-8266EX.
For the purpose of data logging, tracking & updating data, Thingspeak is being used.
It’s an open source IoT analytics service which allows you to have a dashboard for analyzing live data streams in the cloud, coming through your IoT device.
List of Components Used
- WEMOS D1 Mini Development Board (Includes ESP8266 WiFi Module)
- Burden Resistor 33 ohm
- 4051 Multiplexer for the purpose of extending the analog inputs for reading 3 phases
- 1 LED
- 10K Resistor
