Upbeat Labs Dr. Wattson Energy Monitoring Board Library

Libraries for use with Dr. Wattson Energy Monitoring Board

Dr. Wattson is an Energy Monitoring Breakout Board for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other Maker-Friendly Microcontrollers. Easily integrate quality AC energy measurements into your next project!

Based on the MCP39F521, a single-phase power monitoring chip from Microchip, the board is designed to be tolerant of a wide range of voltages, which means that it can also be used with the Raspberry Pi or any other 3.3v MCUs just as easily.

The unit comes pre-calibrated (enabling measurements from 1mA up to 4A) to enable you to start taking quality measurements on the get-go with just a couple of simple commands. You don't need any additional CT or other components.

If you are a more advanced user, you have a wide range of functionality available from the rich library, as well as the ability to tweak the hardware to suit your needs and recalibrate using the library.
